A part of a men’s group for many years, Nepo explores the power of community and practical ways to find common connection—a poignant and timely corrective to the discord and fear directing much of our current public discourse.
Reading the book together, we will reflect on, personalize and seek to expand men’s relationship within their communities. Our three facilitators each bring a special background and appreciation for exploring how community-building begins among a committed group gathering to explore and discuss vibrant ideas.
COST: $25.00 each for first two sessions. Last session $35.00, includes breakfast
“There were certainly things I admired about my father, but I didn’t have any models of the kind of man I wanted to be, and I think that’s common for a lot of men….I’ve spent a lifetime being greeted by people who didn’t know how to put togetherthat I was both a poet and a strong man.”
– Mark Nepo, interviewed in Psychology Today
