Workshop Description

Intimate relationships are challenging, and they can feel more so for men. Cultural norms and expectations have demanded one set of behaviors from men, however, once men find themselves in an intimate relationship they may discover that those initially learned behaviors, leave them ill-equipped in navigating the emotional landscape, and engagement necessary, for a mutually shared connection with their partner.

The goal of this group is to assist men in developing a keen awareness of how successful relationships function, and the theories and research that support best practices for nourishing relational contentment.

Each session will present a particular framework for viewing and understanding what may either detract or support a healthy relational style. Those frameworks included:


  • Attachment Theory
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology
  • Mindfulness
  • The Nature of Primary and Secondary Emotions


Each session of the four-week program will proceed with the following structure:


  • A brief period of meditation
  • An Introduction of a pertinent topic related to relational dynamics
  • A mediated open forum for discussion and sharing of experiences related to participants primary intimate relationship (present and/or past)



*The workshop will consist of four sessions over a four-week period and are held on Saturday mornings. Workshop will commence when minimum available slots are filled.
