Anchoring in the learning and growth of men


Following the weekend workshop you will be invited to attend an integration group.

Integration allows you to share your experiences with men from the course for one evening a week over a period of 5 or 6 weeks.  The insights and growth you gain on the weekend are often huge and we’ve consistently found that men who attend these follow up evenings go on to make the insights a long term change for the better in their daily lives and relationships with partners, children and other men.

This programme is facilitated by men from the Essentially Men network. There is no charge for workshop participants to attend Integration.


What's covered
Anchor 2
Supporting the changes


Integration will help you to:

  • Awaken to your full sense of self without having to conform

  • Improve your ability to relate to loved ones and express feelings

  • Integrate the learning and experiences of the weekend into everyday life.

  • Support any changes you wish to make in your life’s direction.

  • Develop the skills and roles for operating effectively in a men’s group.

  • Deepen friendships and connections with other likeminded men and grow an ongoing support system.

  • Enjoy an ease in offering meaningful help to men in need of support


Who's it for?

This workshop is open to the participants of the Men Being Real workshop and is run for 6 consecutive Tuesday nights.

Valuing your uniqueness


You’ll become skilled in the practices of listening to others and sharing yourself. This develops your ability in the art of real communication, and giving and receiving support, which means a richer life for ourselves and those we love. The deeper sharing also means you are more likely to value your own uniqueness without having to hide it.

The men’s groups that are established operate independently and provide their own leadership and set their own direction and culture. However they are united by the purpose of men focusing on what is going on inside them and their lives.

This differentiates them from most other men’s groups, which are based on such things as hobbies, sports, business, service clubs which can sometimes operate within the narrow limitations of male conditioning where the real you may be unheard or under pressure to conform to group behaviour.
