The Gainesville Men’s Center (GMC) offers powerful learning and growth experiences for men. Our men’s groups and retreats provide sane, supportive places for men to open up new potentials, examine and change their lives, feel and express emotions, and discover true brotherhood.
Men have been gathering in truth-telling circles since the dawn of time. Every man carries deep soul wisdom, and the capacity for passion, purpose, and healthy personal power. These truly beautiful qualities in men can only be activated and refined in the caring and supportive presence of other men, with leaders who have walked the road themselves. Every man has generous gifts to offer other men as well.
