Contemplative Men’s Group

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:00 pm on day Third of the month, repeating indefinitely

$10 – $20

Deep camaraderie, open communication.

Where do men go to talk about things that matter so much: values, life purpose, relationships, spirituality?

So often, men feel compelled to “go it alone”. It is part of our upbringing and identity. But we also have a competing call to community, to companionship on the journey … a place where we can describe our vision, acknowledge our fears, accept grief and heal wounds.

Our men’s 90-minute gatherings offer an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust and acceptance where men can find a sense of mutual accountability in a regular time dedicated to community and contemplative practice.

WHEN:

THIRD Thursday evening of the month.

TIME:

7pm to 8:30pm

FEE:

Cash or Check Donation (suggested amount $10-$20) through December 2019.
Beginning in January, the fee will be $20 each gathering.

LOCATION:

2111 Dickson, Suite 10, Austin, TX 78704

FACILITATOR:

Doug Fritzsche, MDiv.

What happens at each gathering? We share the events of our lives. We focus on a common theme for reflection. We spend some time in contemplative silence. We offer each other our insights and responses and bless one another in parting until we meet again. While the format might vary, these core elements serve to connect our individual stories to a shared whole. We invite you to join us.

We meet the last Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. and lasts about an hour and a half. (The next gathering is Thursday, August 29 at 7 p.m.)

Additional groups may be forming, if you have a scheduling conflict. Please inquire.
