Small Batches

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!

Music Hour

Music is very important to many of us, it can serve to sooth and heal in tough times like these, and we’d like to make it more central to our MenLiving community and work. Music for therapy, for bonding, for inspiration, for healthy debate…these can all fill our cups. All members are welcome.

Recovering Men Virtual Circle

This is a new meeting following the listen/bless/counsel format, with a focus on recovery from addiction. We listen as a group and offer support to our brothers in whichever appropriate way they choose to receive it. We invite all men in recovery, men dealing with addiction/compulsive behavior, and/or any man wanting to know more or offer more in the area of recovery from addiction to attend. This 1-hour meeting will be held at 12pm CT the first Saturday of each month.

Veterans

The intention for our Veterans Circle is to offer an experience not connected to the VA; Many vets don’t partake in VA services because of the stigma and fear of getting their medical records tagged with mental health issues. We offer a safe and confidential space to share and connect.
The Circle is led by Erik Treese, US Army paratrooper, 101st Airborne 1990-1994 and Lewis Schroeder, US Marine Corp, 2nd Lar 2002-2007.
