Terry Martyniuk is active in men's groups as both a member and a leader, conducts workshops, and is a graduate of the "Radical Aliveness" program.

Terry has done extensive work to bring healing and positive change to his outlook on life, demeanor, and sense of self-worth. He shares his personal journey from shame to self-respect and tells us how he came to "own his voice."

He discusses some of the many benefits of attending men's groups, including why they are a perfect laboratory for trying out new behaviors, how they can break the feeling of isolation, and how they assist in validating a man's sense of identity.

Terry examines the uniqueness of men-only gatherings where men cultivate compassion, empathy, and listening, along with the understanding that they are not alone.

He explores how creativity can speed up the process of healing, why every experience in a men's group is valuable, and what benefits are realized when a man steps into his discomfort and asserts himself.

Terry also weighs in on how men's groups allow participants to explore anger in a safe environment and how purpose through service can become clear when a man moves past deep-rooted emotions such as shame and guilt.

Meet Bob Munro, the CEO and a leader of men at The Art Of Masculinity, with close to thirty years of experience in men's groups.

Bob shares his personal insights from his youth and years as a young adult, three marriages, and how, in his mid-forties, he came to understand the man he wanted to become.

He tells us how he shed the "little-boy" image of himself and grew into maturity as he ventured into a world of "good men."

Bob explains why he used to have more women friends than men, how lost and unsure he felt, and why he was unable to find answers.

And then, his perspective changed one weekend when he decided to participate in a men's retreat.

Bob discusses what a Three-Dimensional Man is, when and where to take the "mask" off, how to "go into battle" emotionally clean, and why it is vital to a man's well-being to have other men in his life.

Bob's "cup is now full" because men give him what he needs and the one woman in his life gives him what he wants.

Bob Munro's experience of surrounding himself with hundreds of "good men" has been transformative.

Influenced by both Indian mysticism and Western science, Sujith Ravindran has traveled four continents to develop and participate in brotherhoods. In his more than thirty years of experience working with men and his active involvement in over forty-five men's groups, he has developed a large, worldwide network.

Sujith is recognized for his work in the fields of relationships and leadership development. He is the author of the books "The Being Leader" and "Mature Masculinity," which have been translated into various languages.

In this interview, Sujith discusses the differences between the men's work he does (based on his Indian traditions) and the typical North American men's group model, as well as the reasons why certain aspects of a man's inner journey can be supported only by a council of men.

Sujith shares his thoughts on the characteristics of a healthy relationship and the ways in which a man's responsibility to show up in his relationship relates directly to how he shows up in the world.

He explains his view of vulnerability and describes the manner in which a men's group can provide a safe environment to help transform a man through the healing of his wounds, overcoming anger, and moving past grief into a place of peace.

Sujith explores our reasons for repressing difficult emotions, how men are blocked from showing love and compassion, and the two common demons that men face: fear and anger.

Sujith, a deep believer in leading by example, also touches on why brotherhoods are integral to fostering the internal motivation and inspiration that are required for a man to take action and bring about changes in his life.
