” An evening for men to explore raw feelings . . . ”
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
42 Begbie Street
New Westminster, BC
Men in the Mirror (a men’s group in New Westminster) is calling men to a special event hosted by Terry Martyniuk.
Let’s jointly tear down some walls and discover hidden emotional chambers. You are invited to a place of camaraderie to express anger and understand it too.
― Men need men ―
Life comes with difficult times, and on this occasion you can have others witness your plight and resilience.
Together we’ll look at feelings that bubble up unexpectedly amidst misgiving and fear.
☼ Shameful longings?
☼ Hurting in relationships?
☼ Has someone harmed your basic trust?
☼ Feeling faceless and nameless?
Your birthright is to be heard, and have friends support you in learning how to decisively and gracefully fend off threats without emotional excessiveness.
Come to our meeting and navigate otherwise concealed stuff with a trained group facilitator skilled in reaching the obstructed inner world of feelings, shedding restrictions of stamina, and uncovering eclipsed resentments.
Indeed: such processes we must do amidst highly supportive men who share the ambition to feel unburdened. And so let’s do that together.
If you can, and want to, join us on Thursday December 10th, at 6-thirty PM at 42 Begbie Street in New Westminster.

― About guest host Terry Martyniuk ―
Terry Martyniuk is a man who calls out what’s stuck.
Presently in his final year of Radical Aliveness training, a body-oriented psychotherapy form with an emphasis on breaking visceral self-arrest, he leads workshops for people to rediscover their fading vigour.
Himself a long-term men’s group member, he will guest host at Men in the Mirror to show its attendees how to defy emotional crosscurrent by means of provoking anger, [in an entirely safe and supportive environment].
Terry has methods to jam the inflow of personal inertia and gain a clarity for one’s own emotions. He invites you in a world where temperament is safe to unchain.

― About Men in the Mirror ―
Men in the Mirror is a men’s group that meets weekly for deep-felt conversation.
Speak openly, with ease, and lidless with men who you can really trust and count on.
– Talk fearlessly about defeat, meaning, rage, …
– Always knowing what the others feel
– Disillusionments ― tremendously strong and joyful
The well-tuned connections [ deep friendship ] within men’s groups are the result of hard work. Up and down through stages of feelings of omnipotence, doubt, guilt, loss, conflicts in relationships.
Expect the group to be receptive to your reason and passion. We have comfortable dialogues about what matters most. Weekly meetings to quest our unsoiled sentiments.
Has it been a while since you felt truly valued somewhere?
Do you even know what you are entitled to in life?
Men in the Mirror is a brotherly environment to cultivate the male soul; for when you are stuck in pain and a place of isolation.
Our group has no set topics, we just come together to talk about whatever is on our minds. We discuss how to deal with things, what we see as virtuous, what we consider right action. There is room to speak about what we feel ashamed of, feel confused about, or are afraid of.
But it is not all downhearted. We can cheer someone’s accomplishments or honour someone’s fortitude. The mature man: only be, what you only are, what you always would.
SO: if you care to talk to others and investigate how to live life the right way then drop by for tea and a talk. Join us for unvarnished conversation and exchanges of consolation.
Being reinless is strangely comforting.
