THE HUMEN SPACE

The Gym for the Mind

The first anonymous in-person safe space for men to talk and connect. The HUMEN Space is all about mutual aid. 'Self help' is all well and good but in a complex and baffling world, we’re nothing without each other. Self-help says, 'I can do it', whereas mutual aid says, 'We can do it'. One hour sessions where men get together to talk honestly in a confidential space without judgement or ridicule.

Sometimes we all feel down, alone or just in need to decompress from the noise of the day for an hour - a boost for the brain.

That's where The HUMEN Space comes in.

One hour sessions that focus on a single topic or theme per session (purpose, courage, fear, hope, regret, drive, success).

A speaker shares a story based around the theme at the start of the session, the floor is then opened up for members to share what they related to or their relation to the theme.

Research has shown that practicing empathy in this way builds inner strength and enhances wellbeing over time. People with strong human connections also recover faster from sickness, have a greater life expectancy and better relationships.

Witnessing universal commonalities and experiencing the benefits of talking firsthand will enable you to build emotional capacities that men have long been taught to discard. Think of it as your Gym for the Mind. A workout is more than how far you run or how many bench presses and curls you do.

Don’t neglect the inner workout.
