The question "Who am I?" leads the seeker’s journey.
For men who are on a journey of self-discovery other questions may arise.
What does it mean to be a man today?
How can I, as a man, experience fulfilling, loving relationships?
What is power? What is weakness?
Why do I often feel that something is missing in my life?

Tending the Fire addresses and explores the challenges men face today. As group facilitators, we offer honest, insightful perspectives and support in a safe, trusting environment. Our aim is to help men discover their authentic power. We believe that each life is a hero’s journey. On this path, a man’s courage to identify his feelings and express them honestly leads him to the awareness of his true identity as a man, and, as a member of the human community.

When men listen, support and understand each other, they come to discover the richness of their shared lives as men. During group sessions, issues emerge organically from the fabric of each man’s life. Meetings find focus around a central theme such as relationships, sexuality, father/son dynamics, work and money, aging, and health.

Since its founding in 2003, men ranging in age from 18 to 80 have come to Tending the Fire to share their stories, longings, struggles, disappointments, successes, hopes and most importantly, themselves.
