What is a Men's Circle
About The Men's Circle
In mid 2013 while living in Duncan on Vancouver Island I discovered that there was support for Men. While driving in downtown Duncan I saw a banner on the side of a building. "Support for Men". This was the catalyst that eventually brought me to my first Mens Group in Duncan. It was a scary step to take, as I didn't trust Men and certainly didn't feel safe sharing with Men. What I experienced and witnessed called me back to the circle week after week and inspired me to eventually start a circle in Squamish. The Squamish Men's Circle has been meeting in Squamish since March of 2014.
We follow an outline that is designed to allow each Man to be supported. The outline also allows each Man to look inward and assess where he is at, where he may need support and where he may need to do some work.
What you get from the circle is really up to you. You can quietly witness others, as they go through their process, only to find out that you learned a lot about yourself through the experience. Or, you can step up with courage and ask to be challenged and commit to taking action in your life.

The Circle has healing power. In the Circle, we are all equal. When in the Circle, no one is in front of you. No one is behind you. No one is above you. No one is below you. The Sacred Circle is designed to create unity. The Hoop of Life is also a circle. On this hoop there is a place for every species, every race, every tree and every plant. It is this completeness of Life that must be respected in order to bring about health on this planet. ~ Chief Dave Oglala Lakota
