Our Weekend Gatherings

Established in 1992, COMEGA offers two weekend gatherings a year.  Through various rituals, workshops, and activities, both in small and large groups, we create an open, trusting, and non-competitive environment; an environment where men can takes risks, learn to share with one another – their life experiences, examine their strengths, limitations, dreams and hopes, and to express their talents.  Men are provided the opportunity to explore who they are, what it means to be masculine, and to experience deeper parts of themselves.

We create an environment that invites trust and welcomes and respects differences.  All men our welcome at our gatherings. 

Our Vision

The purpose of the Connecticut Men’s Gathering (COMEGA) is to empower men to create and foster a community where the invitation is to break down the internal barriers that cause isolation. This inspires the courage in each man to consciously explore the challenges in his life, and to bring forth his authentic self. He is empowered to bring his newly found awareness, commitments, and passions back to his relationships and to his community. Twice a year this opportunity is experienced as a weekend format where men are provided this chance to safely journey from their heads to their hearts, thereby revealing and celebrating their true masculine spirit, often experienced as a feeling of brotherhood.

Our 55th gathering is tentatively planned for

Spring 2021

The Organizing Committee wants to keep all of you informed on our discussions about the possibility of a Spring Gathering.  Each month we meet and discuss the latest guidance from the CDC and the Connecticut Department of Public Health.  Our hope has been that there will be a vaccine available prior to the gathering and that we may be able to meet in some way.  However, there is no guarantee that even if there is a vaccine that it will be widely available.  In the event there is a gathering, we will have to abide by state guidance and whatever restrictions Camp Hazen may have in place.  We are also beginning discussion about the possibility of having a virtual online gathering if we cannot meet in person.  As we move forward with our discussions and make the decision, we will keep you all posted.  In the meantime, continue to reach out to each other and support each other through these difficult times.  You are not alone.
