Mainely Men’s next Gathering is (possibly) MM79 Friday April 30 to Sunday May 2, 2021.

The Board of Mainely Men has decided that the current Covid crisis makes it impossible to safely hold an in-person Gathering at Pilgrim Lodge at this time. The results of a survey we emailed showed a lack of support for another virtual gathering as well. Due to these two facts, the Board of Mainely Men has decided to cancel the Fall Gathering in it’s entirety.

The Board will re-assess the situation in January to see if a Spring Gathering is viable. Stay tuned to Facebook and the Newsletter for updates.

We encourage all past Mainely Men attendees to keep in contact with each other through email, phone calls, and video apps. There is even this new thing going around called “writing a letter”. Contact information for past attendees can be found in the Roster that you received with the Group Photo after attending each Gathering.

Mainely Men has been holding weekend gatherings for men twice a year since 1982. Through meetings, workshops, ritual, music, discussion groups, food, sports, one-on-one conversations, films, shared work and lectures, we explore both traditional and changing views of masculinity as well as other issues we face as men.

We strive to provide a safe and open environment where we can tell our stories at levels that are not usually available to us in our daily lives. We develop trust and gain a stronger awareness of ourselves and others.

We welcome men of all ages 18 and over to celebrate our diversity as men and our uniqueness as individuals.

Come see why Mainely Men has been around for 35 years!

Mainely Men 76 – October 11-14, 2019
