The pressure on men to be “unemotional” and purely logical leads to men’s poor health and life span statistics. That’s why at the National Conference on Men and Boys, a key part of our program is space for emotional expression and affectionate connection among men .
We call this space the Big Man Gathering. And this year it’s bigger and better than ever.
The event takes place at the Wowo campsite in the heart of Sussex over the weekend of Saturday 28th September and Sunday 29th September.
Following the success of last year’s event, we invited various groups and individuals from around the UK who are interested in men’s work, self development, men’s circles, rites of passage etc, to come along and help us create an extraordinary weekend together.
This year we have the added bonus of camping and camp fires and an even bigger range of workshops and activities for you to choose from. You can come for either one or both days, whichever works for you.
Day one includes a range of workshops for you to choose from on the themes of “Exploring The Man Inside” and “Revealing Your Inner Strengths”.
The workshops on day two are on the theme of “Masculinity In Action: Men On A Mission” and “Connecting With The Feminine: The Power Of Union”.
If you can’t come for a whole day but still want to connect with the vibe, you can come just for the big Barbeque on Saturday night.
