Workshops At The Big Man Gathering


A Men of all backgrounds are invited to attend this year’s Big Man Gathering II, a weekend of unique workshops and activities set amongst the tents, yurts, campfires and woodlands of the beautiful WoWo campsite in Sussex.

The event is created by some of the leading practitioners working with men in the UK today as part of the 3rd National Conference for Men and Boys, so if you’re a man who is interested in personal growth and development then why not join us for a day or even spend the whole weekend with us at this year’s Big Man Gathering.

For details of the timetable of activities that take place on each day see:

  2. You appear to have a good selection of workshops arranged but I see no mention of the issue of false allegations of domestic violence. Non-molestation orders etc have become part of the gamesmanship of divorce and separation cases and are routinely used by women and their solicitors against men to gain the upper hand to secure occupation orders, custody of children and better financial settlements. They are dished out willy nilly in the family courts where there is no burden of proof, based on a signed affidavit from the woman that often contain malicious lies and exaggerations; they very often have nothing to do with genuine domestic violence. The attitude of the judiciary is that they don’t stop a man doing something he shouldn’t be doing anyway, so they tend to issue the order as a safe bet. This is of course is complete and utter nonsense, apart form the stigma of a non-molestation order and the sexual connotations of the word “molestation”, they put men in an incredibly precarious position completely at the mercy of the woman who can have the man arrested, convicted and possibly imprisoned just for talking to her or having a disagreement about the selling price of the family home. As someone that has fallen victim of this practice I feel strongly that this issue needs to be raised. Women’s Aid are constantly broadening the definition of domestic violence and it can now be shoe horned to fit even the most minor of domestic disputes. Men are the easy targets and feminist political correctness has recently been exposed at the Ministry of justice, i.e. at the very heart of our legal system.
