Let’s get online with each other and stay in contact, share our respective stories, information and feeling responses to this pandemic.  Staying socially linked is always been vital and now it is more important.  This is a new experience for the world, so let’s do it well and with intelligence.

Let’s stay connected…physical distance – yes, social distance – no!


Manology celebrates its 11th year in 2019/20!

The first session is FREE of charge for new men.IMG_3605

Manology is a friendly, interactive and experiential course for men of all stages, viewpoints, orientations, and ethnicities. Men can either register for the course (and save a few bucks) or drop-in when their interest and schedule allow. Manology acknowledges that this moment in culture is one of fast and profound change that affects all humanity.  Men as a major social group are affected. While Western women have been redefining their roles in society for decades, there have been very few places where men have been invited to examine and redefine their roles, relationships, and sense of purpose.

Manology is just such a place, where men are celebrated and supported, and are offered insight, experiences, and conversations on the physical, mental, and spiritual journey of manhood. Manology is a place to have fun, try out some new things, share stories, humor and knowledge, learn and to make new friendships. Sessions are interactive, friendly and experiential, not lectures.  It’s a great place to connect with yourself and other men in a safe, fun and positive atmosphere.  It’s an easy way to break out of patterns of emotional and social isolation.  Come and hang out!

Manology iManologyHColors for men who are interested in looking at how ideas about what a man is and is not, shape and influence us, in all areas of our lives.  Manology is delivered by a diverse team of educators and facilitators with a wide range of knowledge and skills to share with men.  Diversity is desired: men of all stages, backgrounds, philosophies, ethnicities and orientations are welcome.

The first session of the Monday drop-in course is FREE of charge for new men.
