Men say training has made them better men

Here's a good article called Men say training has made them better men from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

I find it very surprising that a group would allow a woman to sit in the circle. I appreciate the coverage, but it is very unusual and I actually have never heard it being done before. These are men's circles. We keep them that way for many reasons.

All in all, a fair assessment of the iGroup experience.

I'm out.

  1. OFW,

    I am one of the men who agreed to let this reporter (who conincidentally happened to be a woman) sit in on one of our I Group meetings. It was quite a stretch, to be sure! And I am very glad that we did it. It certainly proved that good work can happen even when a "stranger" sits in the circle.

    The key factor was intention. Both the reporter and the photographer came with an intention to learn about and respect what we were doing.
