Meeting Intentions & Guidelines
Intentions For Our Meetings
We at Positive Masculinity ask that attendees please come to each meeting with these intentions:
How will I make this space feel positive?
How will I show that I care?
How will I keep energy levels up?
How will I support those that struggle?
How will I create a positive relationship with failure and vulnerability?
Guidelines For Our Meetings
We listen to what everyone has to offer.
Everyone in the room has something valuable to offer which we honor with our full attention and non-judgment, giving them the space and time they need to speak.
We speak from the heart, not just the head.
When we share our lived experiences and feelings, rather than just ideas and theories, we offer something really valuable to the group and ourselves.
We take care of ourselves and each other.
It's up to us to decide how much or how little to participate, while being mindful of the needs of others. We only benefit when we are willing to put good ideas into action.
We respect one another's autonomy.
We are creating a safe space by agreeing to not share another's personal story or details without their consent.
