“The circle, to me, is like coming back home after a long time away; back to who I am, wanted to be then, and still can be now. “Being a man”, said a poet, is “a lonely and austere office”. But in the circle, I am not alone.”
“I have been with this circle now for two months and it has been one of the most uplifting, positive, motivating experiences that I can remember. It is by far the best time and money I’ve ever spent. Frank is fantastic, positive, a great leader, inspirational, and the perfect coach and facilitator for this medium. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take that next step in their life, bond with some great men, and have somewhere to go once a week where you can truly be your authentic self and grow with others in the process.”
“The men’s circle allows me to voice all my pent up thoughts and concerns to a group of men that I know will provide me with insight and advice that will not only solve current situations but prepare for the future as well. It also allows me to help those same men with their situations and in turns makes us all better by the end of each session.”
“I really love it, because I know every week I’m free to say whatever I want, and no matter how foolish I might think I look, I’ll get sincere, honest feedback that’ll make it okay that I talked about it. I’m learning a lot, it’s great, and I’m really glad I discovered this!”
The Men’s Circle has ben a ‘safe place’ for me to be totally open & honest & know that I will be accepted, not judged & sincerely supportedwith any issues I am dealing with. The other men have reinforced my masculine nature with genuine encouragement. They have acted as a mirror for my own masculine reflection & consideration. Very helpful for me. I also really appreciate Frank’s sincere desire to make a difference & support us men. Thank you.
“I’m 62 years old, and I’ve lived through a lot of what life has to offer and what it throws at us while we’re looking the other way. The work with the men in my group has enabled me to make positive changes which, for the first time, make me feel like I am finally doing a good job of being a man. There is a new woman in my life, and I have never had a more honest relationship, where I can be the man I want to be, and the man she needs without compromise between the two roles.
My two grown sons and I have, for the first time, a relationship between men. I no longer treat them like children, and they don’t see me as “the old man.” There is love of course, but now there is also an honest regard and communication between us. It’s really cool. The men in my group have become the best friends I’ve ever had, not because we’re buddies, which we are, but because we are honest with each other, and hold each other accountable for our actions. I am on a continuing path of growth, and they don’t let me stray. I do the same for them.”
“For me being part of the group is like being in front of a mirror, showing me who I really am, and getting a chance to see my true self -giving me the opportunity to make changes in order to be the man I really want to be.”
“Let’s face it, being a man nowadays is emasculating! With the help of the circle, and my Wednesday night group, I’ve been supported through the trials and tribulations of divorce, re-entry to the singles scene, and most importantly given the tools to make my new relationship blossom and work…we’re getting married in August. This work helps me be a better man, father, and partner. Without it, I’d still be the floundering crybaby I started as!”
“The support of the men’s group saved my marriage. We were separated and moved back together. Now, I have to keep remembering the lessons.”
“Initially, I was unsure of what I would get from group -if and how it would benefit me. I now see that the interaction that occurs in the group setting, and the relationships I am building with the other men, is helping me to be more of the man who I want to be. Consequently, it is helping me to deal with my interpersonal relationships much more effectively, and as a result, I am experiencing less internal turmoil and am feeling better about my life as a whole.”
