A Circle of Men

Newtown, CT – Two local men with years of experience in facilitating men’s groups will present A Circle of Men, taking place at Sticks and Stones Farm, at 197 Huntington Road in Newtown on Friday, February 15 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.

Robert Werme and Jody Grose are members of the Mankind Project, and participate in regular meetings of men to support one another in every aspect of their lives. Robert is the Music Director at the Mattatuck Unitarian Universalist Society of Woodbury, a drum circle facilitator and Respite Care provider for Family and Children’s Aid of Danbury. Jody is the founder of Return To The Fire, an organization committed to men accessing their true masculine spirit.

Tim Currier and Annie Stiefel of Sticks and Stones Farm, and Justin Pegnataro, Executive Director of Two Coyotes Wilderness School have graciously provided space for A Circle of Men to hold our event.

Men from many walks of life who live in and around Sandy Hook have been emotionally affected by the shooting that occurred there on December 14th of last year. The Mankind Project is a movement that helps men to experience the unique kinds of support that are available from other men. Friday evening, men who attend A Circle of Men will have the opportunity to observe, and participate in this powerful healing resource.
