The themes will rotate and we will share about masculine and male norms

Hearts On Our Sleeve - is a chill social space to share stories about being men or seen as men in our lives.

An aim for this group is to actively break down the social norms that stop men from sharing their feelings and create safe spaces to practice speaking our truth.

An aim for this group is an entry point for developing honest, vulnerable, and connected relationships between masculine identified and presenting folks and their communities.

An aim is to learn and explore social norms and power imbalances.

An aim is to learn and grow through sharing stories and practicing deep listening and reflection.

An aim is to bring awareness to our bodies, social norms, and behaviours.

An aim is to create connected, intimate, and vulnerable spaces of inner strength.

We will cut out little red hearts that we can give out and folks can pin them to their sleeve. The intention is to create safety in sharing our feelings and stories. We become the role models for each other.

This group does not require you to speak. It requires you to listen. Each of us will practice reflection/witnessing.

This is a learning space. We all have lots to learn. We will make mistakes and we will learn and grow together. Some of that will be uncomfortable. Some of it will feel great. Sometimes we will ebb and flow between them.

Please send me theme ideas! Spread the word!

Also, if you have questions or feedback please send it my way.

Bring Snacks!
