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.
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.
