Foundation Men'sWork organises and creates the spaces, time and attention, where men are allowed to do nothing, just stand still and look at - and within - themselves. As simple as this sounds, thirty years later, this is still our basis. We do not use complicated methods or theories. Our workshops and other groups in this sense have become increasingly more basic, with progressively less emphasis on the aspect of "training", in which something should be learned. Today more than ever, the emphasis is on 'being in the here and now', as concerns everything. Our own wisdom, our ability to connect with other men on a deep level, and our natural ability to heal, are surprisingly closer than we often realise. Add to this our invitation to men to speak out about their concerns and the things they are deeply moved by. Not just 'talk about', but speaking out and listening in connection with the heart, body and soul.
