Meet Ups

Men’s Sunday Meetup was created to connect men in the local community. Meeting at Shelly beach, in Port Macquarie every Sunday at 7:00am. It’s a safe space to come together and spend the morning eating a free breakfast and going for a casual walk down the beach. It’s a great way to meet new friends and know that the men have your back. If you need to talk to someone about something you are going through and struggling with, there is always someone to hold that space for you. If you just want to come down for the great bacon and egg rolls that’s ok too! In the Facebook group also, you have access to other information and events that are happening in the area. It will keep you updated with what’s happening on the Sunday each week.

“The information you guys shared on how the past can keep us in a story of not being worthy, not being good enough, really made me understand where I’ve been stuck!”

mens Circles

Men can often be confused about men’s circles and why they exist. What’s the point? Why do I need to open up and talk to a bunch of men I don’t know? Here’s the simple answer.

Men have had “don’t talk about your problems” & “its weak to tell others your struggling” beaten into their subconscious and thrown into the forefront of their minds through upbringing, culture and socially accepted toxic behaviours. Men are often told to suck it up or harden up. Resulting in suppression of emotions, isolation due to fears of not accepted. Simple fact is that men don’t feel comfortable talking about their lives or how they feel about things that are happening. Even Men who become self-aware and more conscience still have trouble opening up and sharing.
The sad truth of the matter is that most men go through life without ever having the opportunity and security of feeling safe to talk about what’s happening and how they feel. This is where in lies the problem, because of stigma, culture, and toxic attitudes about being vulnerable and sharing when men come up against the unavoidable adversities of life, they realise they don’t have the coping skills or many healthy outlets to help them. This often leads to burn out, breakdowns, and substance abuse.

The benefits of a men’s circle and support group is to give them a healthy outlet to share and get things of the mind in a safe space, in confidentiality, in private. This is a great way to start healing the generation culture and stigma around how men should show up. This is why we have the Self Seen Men’s Circle.

“We are not what happened to us, we are who we choose to become”
