The group runs for 3 weeks in a row, then takes a break, when participants meet with a buddy in the off week. 

Because the group meets for 16 sessions, there is typically one stretch when the group meets four sessions in a row. Groups sometimes take two weeks off for the December holidays. See each group schedule for details.

What Participants Are Saying about the Experience

"There has been a collective tone of understanding in our group. We have grown to appreciate each other for who we are. We've come to see the need for each of us to express our inherent wisdom and not let it go to waste. I think we are all a bit more ambitious because we have shared this experience. "

--Bill B.


"It has been several years since I've sat in a room with my fellow gay men, sharing openly about matters of the heart, body, mind, soul, and spirit, while consistently saying to myself, "Yes! I feel that way too!" This program has helped me recognize and awaken the gifts I have had all along."

--Buck D.
