Open Men’s Group

For many of us, our Dads weren’t there for us.  It doesn’t matter the reason, the effects are the basically the same.  Our mothers were trying to raise us to be men from their female perspective. 

In our sacred group, we learn new tools from those who have walked that road and have learned new ways to communicate in our relationships with our families, other men and most importantly, with ourselves.  Positive changes are possible! 

We meet Tuesdays at 12:30pm in Cottonwood.  For location, contact Arvel Bird or call (615) 218-8596.
