Testimonials from Authentic Men:
“In the short time I have attended MATES I learnt about the mask we can all wear and it felt like mine was going to crack and upon leaving that meeting I also felt like I had a hole in my safety net…Gradually my life has started to change & every time, around & in that energy of MATES, I grow closer to that Authentic Life we long for & deserve to have and personally look forward to the time & challenges to come.” – Ricky
“There have been tears and laughs as we share together. Quite often I am surprised by what happens during our sharing together. I've found a healing takes place as we humble ourselves and share from our hearts. There is opportunity for the guys to really encourage those who are going through a rough patch in their lives. There is a great deal of wisdom that is shared and I have personally grown and learnt a lot through the times of encouragement…I have really enjoyed the challenging process that I have seen in my own Life and I hope that many other men will come on board so that MATES can make a difference in their Lives as well.” - Kevin
“This was a fairly dramatic and highly unpleasant time that left me highly stressed and in a lot of self-doubt…I have attended regular meetings since then and have found a huge level of comfort amongst members. It is a very non-judgmental environment where I feel accepted for all of who and what I am. I gain huge amounts of clarity and insight from all members and meetings.” – Lawrence
“This for me was the start of something awesome. Men here were interested in where I had been, but more so where I was going. This question was one I wanted answers for and they seem to give me a sense of hope which I hadn’t seen before. It was incredible the feelings I had from these meetings and I wanted more of it. I knew it was good for me…" - Peter
