MEN'S INSTITUTE

 

Mission: To guide men into deeper connection with themselves and their world for the purpose of living powerful, consciously awake, and service filled lives... We do this through transformational programs, coaching and counseling.
 

All men arrive at a point in their adult life where they could use a boost.

A boost can come in the form of a simple change of perspective, picking up some practices that improve awareness, or even finding a deeper reason for doing the things you do.

Introduction to Men’s Work

 

Join Director of Men’s Programs Tom Kelley for an introduction into the world of Men’s Work.

The structure and practices of a Men’s Group will be explained, demonstrated and demystified, making this an ideal event for a man with little to no experience in “Men’s Work”

Pathfinders: For Young Men Who Want to Lead Their Own Lives

Feel It?

Tired of the same old, same old - things lacking energy, school or work feeling pointless, not feeling understood? Is there something in you that wants more? That wants people in your life who are  excited about stuff, curious to explore, ready to take risks, to try new things, to have real conversations?

Can you can feel that? 

That desire is in you. But you may not be tuned into it yet, because the things you do everyday do not even come close to matching that feeling in you of what you really want...of how you want your life to be. That desire, that “call”, feels far away. 

But you do want your life to be different...more exciting...more interesting. You want to do something that matters. You want to have awesome friends. You want to feel successful. You want what you do to make a difference and have some kind of impact! This is the call - this feeling of not wanting life to suck - of wanting your life to Thrive! 

If wanting your life to Thrive is living in you, then you are not alone! If you are anything like us, beneath all the lazy, bored bullshit, you are ready to go after it! 

That’s good, because that’s what we’re doing. And we’d love you to join us!

Life is tough...

We get it, it is hard being young guy today. You are supposed to be motivated so you can do well in school, get good grades, get into the best college, get the right job, in order to have a good life. You are supposed to be responsible, work hard, care about what you are doing, and have a clear understanding about what you want to do with your life. You are supposed to have friends, feel confident, and not be lonely or insecure.

How is that going for you?

There is a different way. A way that you feel your connection to your own motivation, your own call to action. No more being told what to do, but rather, finding out what you are MEANT to do.

Is this sounding like something that inspires you?

We created Pathfinders for the young man who wants to get traction in his life. The guy who is ready to step into his greatness on his terms. 

We know it is possible for you to feel confident, inspired, passionate, connected, and have the clarity you need to really make a difference in the world. We know your knowing “who you are” and “what you want” is available to you. We know you can be part of this elite group..

On the road to saying “Yes!”

We know it might be hard to say “Yes!”  even though you really want to - that you will be tempted to do it “later” or you think you can do it alone. 

Right now is the time to become a PATHFINDER - why wait? It will not be easier to go for it “later”. It will actually be harder.  THIS IS THE TIME.  You may be able to do it on your own, but we know this journey is more effectively navigated as part of a team, with supportive mentors and brothers at your side every step of the way - in other words, you will get more out of your launch doing it with others.
