Event description

Description

You're invited to our next men's circle!

Four Directions Men's Circle provides a community space for men to share experiences, knowledge and wisdom, and benefit from peer support.


Based in the South East of the UK, Four Directions Men's Circle hosts regular meetings and events for men to meet up in a safe environment, offer and receive support.

Purpose

  • To provide a safe space for men to meet and support each other in the experience of being a man through cultivating a regular practice of self awareness, learning and positive change.

Who is The Circle for?

  • Men of any age, sexuality, race, religion, faith, belief or physical ability.
  • Men who aim to uphold the values of the Four Directions Men’s Circle

What are our Values?

Mature Masculinity

  • An empowered approach to being a man in today’s world: Accountability, Authenticity, Compassion, Generosity, Integrity, Multicultural Awareness, Respect.

Initiation

  • Learning the value of challenge and the power of support.

Men Helping Men

  • Breaking the competitive cycle, learning to resolve conflict, challenging old habits, finding acceptance.

Connection To Feelings

  • Emotional literacy is recognised by psychologists as a key factor in successfully dealing with many of life’s most complex issues.

What will happen at the meetings?

The intention is to co-create unique spaces where men can meet and spend time exploring the masculine experience, based around the core question of “what does it mean to be a man?”. Each meeting will be a unique collaboration between the men who attend - every man will be expected to contribute in some way; as a minimum through their presence and their respect of the space and the group. Men may offer to bring some activity to a meeting or lead / facilitate any or all aspects of it.

Elements of a meeting could include:

  • Sharing your thoughts, feelings and experiences
  • Supporting a man through a specific issue he asks for help with
  • Work projects (thinking designing, planning. doing)
  • Creation and sharing of food
  • Receiving support from and supporting other men
  • Receiving constructive criticism or challenge
  • Meditation
  • Physical exercise

Where does the Circle meet?

The location is a Yurt on private land in Hurstpierpoint close to BN6 9AF which comfortably holds 13 men, which is the maximum number of men at any Four Directions circle.

How much do meetings cost?

The price of attending meetings is free, although a voluntary donation towards the costs of hosting will be invited of men who attend (this goes toward supplies, firewood, maintenance etc).
