Manology celebrates its 13th year in 2021/2022

Welcome back!  After shifting to online sessions back in March 2020 when Covid first hit, Manology is back, both in person and online for Fall 2021!   Our physical host venue, the Roundhouse Community has invited us back as they are open again.  So, Mondays from 7:00- 9:30, starting Sept 13, please join us in the circle in person once again!

NOTE!!: Please note that masks are now mandatory again while in the Roundhouse.

Exceptions are as follows:

  • People with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one
  • People who cannot remove a mask on their own
  • Children 11 and under
  • People who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person’s hearing impairment
  • Masks are not required when engaged in physical activity

The mask requirement is a polarizing issue. Many Manology men have expressed a desire to meet in person again.  Others won’t feel safe doing so, or may be against the current mask mandate.  Manology is agreeing to follow the mask protocol required in order to run our in-person sessions.  And Manology online sessions will also be operating this fall as another option. Manology is doing all we can to create options!!

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. 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 ages, races, sexual orientations, backgrounds and philosophies are welcome.


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

Come connect with yourself and with other men in an atmosphere of depth exploration, fun, respectful, open-minded, positive masculinity.  For men 19 years of age and older.
