The “small-batch” concept gives men a structure for gathering in smaller groups for a more intimate connection than might be had in a large virtual or in-person meeting.
Why call it “small batch?” Well, a small-batch designates or relates to a type of small-scale production in which goods are made in limited quantities, often by means of traditional or artisanal methods. We think this name fits the concept!

The Men Living Book Club promotes inquiry into new genres and explores the varying viewpoints and experiences that different people take away from a good book. Our hope is that these conversations will promote a deeper kinship as we get a better understanding of how each other thinks about and views the world.
We’ll focus on books less than ~400 pages geared toward pleasure reading instead of serious study or self-reflection. Each month a member of the group will pick 2-3 books that are interesting to them and the group will vote on which one to read. Everyone will make their best attempt to read it so they can actively participate in the discussion. The person that selected the month’s book will lead that month’s meeting.
I hope you’ll join us, good books are always better when you can discuss them with others!

Self-compassion has proven to be a benefit to individual well-being and especially for those who are particularly self-critical. On December 5th, a 3-month self-compassion small batch will launch. The small batch is intended to get a group of guys together for a self-compassion journey through accountability and share experiences. Check out more details here.
The intent of this small batch is to talk about money and our relationship to it.
I want the group to share their feeling and story around money. Some of the discussions might be: What was your money situation when you were growing up? What does money mean to you? Who taught you about money? Do you have conflicts with others around money? Does money get in the way of you truly living the life you want? What is your belief system around money, is it good, bad? Is it both, etc.? I find talking about money a fascinating subject, however, it’s not always been that way. I’m hoping to create a space where men can discuss money freely without being judged. This small batch will meet once a week for a month and then we will decide if we want to continue it and for how long.
