Men Who Care
September 7 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
In March of 2001 the Center for Spiritual Living Morristown began hosting a men’s group. It was conceived by Rev. Steve Worthing, and developed by Joe Lavenia, and Paul Traina, a retired teacher and presently a counselor/life coach. Rev. John Hannes, came up with the name, Men Who Care, and Paul Rosenberger created the logo for the group.
We are celebrating our 16th year of monthly meetings (more occurred right after 9/11/2001) on the first Saturday of each month. The safe sacred space that has been created for men to express their authentic selves is a welcome environment for all of us who participate. The compassionate listening, honest sharing, reinforcement of SOM principles and genuine support for remembering the magnificent divine being we truly are, serving to attract from 8 to 14 men each month. We are men who practice or come from a Jewish, Catholic, Protestant or SOM background, and readily see our oneness as Spirit when the sessions begin.
We start at 8:30 a.m. with breakfast, which includes an opening treatment, and end at 10:30 a.m. with a closing circle treatment. Some men stay later to converse in small groups or one-on-one. The confidential discussions may begin with some suggested topic, but the group quickly moves into sharing very personal experiences of an emotional, physical, relational and spiritual nature. It is gratifying and inspiring to be in the presence of such courageous, caring men of all age groups who support each other so lovingly!
