THE MINDFUL MEN”S GROUP
Watch the video to better understand what it is all about. Participants answer the most frequent questions.
Imagine the valuable feedback and challenging input you get from a non-BS group of guys. Joining a group of likeminded men is a powerful way of getting to know yourself better. Men have a great power of understanding and being understood by other men. A group consisting of men aims at eliminating distraction and competition and provides greater ease in discussing personal issues.
What we do and who we are is heavily influenced by our work and work environment. In Hong Kong these factors tend to influence or overlap with areas of our private lives more than in other cities or countries. A men’s group is a place outside your usual circles.
You will benefit from being encouraged and challenged by the group in
- Finding yourself and your purpose
- Changing what you always wanted to change
- Bringing attention to your roles, relationships and unfinished business
- Feeling more empowered and self-aware of you and the people around you
- Learning how to deal with your feelings while keeping your male identity
The group size is limited to 8 men. The men are typically 35+ having some sort of matured career in Hong Kong, yet dealing with some ups and downs in life. Sebastian selects participants with an eye on a wholesome group composition and makes sure that backgrounds and expectations match.
If you believe that you could bring value to this engaging forum or have questions, please contact Sebastian.
