“I’m 62 years old, and I’ve lived through a lot of what life has to offer and what it throws at us while we’re looking the other way. The work with the men in my group has enabled me to make positive changes which, for the first time, make me feel like I am finally doing a good job of being a man. There is a new woman in my life, and I have never had a more honest relationship, where I can be the man I want to be, and the man she needs without compromise between the two roles.

My two grown sons and I have, for the first time, a relationship between men. I no longer treat them like children, and they don’t see me as “the old man.” There is love of course, but now there is also an honest regard and communication between us. It’s really cool. The men in my group have become the best friends I’ve ever had, not because we’re buddies, which we are, but because we are honest with each other, and hold each other accountable for our actions. I am on a continuing path of growth, and they don’t let me stray. I do the same for them.”
