    NEW “WEEKENDS OF RECOVERY 20th ANNIVERSARY” VIDEO

    We premiered our newest video last night at the Giving Tuesday Live Event. This retrospective thirty-minute “20th ANNIVERSARY” video features four WOR Alumni and four Facilitators – giving voice to the variety of experiences that have emerged since the first WOR was conducted in September 2001 thru our 90th WOR that was just conducted in November 2021. This video will be archived on our website and our YouTube Channel.

    This video is also available with Spanish subtitles


    ANNOUNCING OUR 2022 EVENT SCHEDULE

    Dates, locations, and other basic information about our 2022 events is now available on our website! We have scheduled a mixture of in-person events as well as continuing a number of virtual events with online accessibility.

    Here is a brief summary of our revised registration pricing policy for 2022:

    MenHealing is committed to equity of financial accessibility for Weekends of Recovery (WOR). We believe that healing should not be impeded by economic limitations. We want everyone to be assured access regardless of financial resources. Registration fees cover the actual costs for conducting a WOR and are not to generate a profit. The fees are inclusive of lodging (two nights), food (seven meals), and program services. In congruence with our financial philosophy, we expect those who can afford to pay the entire actual price for a WOR to do so. However, we will now allow registrants for double or triple occupancy rooms who are unable to pay the entire cost to submit payment for an amount that better reflects their budget.  We will require a minimum payment of 10% of the actual cost. 


    MIXED-MEDIA ART WORKSHOPS: ART FOR FUN AND CONNECTION
     

    Create, express and connect in our mixed-media art workshops that focus on personal expression, connection with others, and pure enjoyment! During the workshops, you will create art objects using a wide variety of art materials. Explore mixed-media art as a tool to increase self-awareness, manage stress, promote: mindfulness, empowerment and healing.  No artistic talent or experience is required.

    Margaret Hunter (WOR Facilitator) will be hosting a series of three virtual ninety-minute Mixed-Media Art Workshops. The online series will be offered three different times, each series conducted on the last three Sunday evenings of January, February, and March. Art materials will be provided in advance of sessions. Registration will be FREE – with donations welcomed from participants. Registration is now open for all three series.

    We are very grateful to each of YOU who have already donated to our Campaign to raise $90,000 in the final 90 days of 2021. Please consider whether YOU can join us in reaching our goal by making a donation of any amount during these final 30 days in December. And, please help us to reach other potential donors by your personal outreach to family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

    MenHealing is able to manage our activities because of deeply committed individuals such as YOU. We invite YOU to help sustain our work by making a donation of any amount. 85% of our operating budget is received from grassroots individual financial donations from supporters like YOU. A GIFT OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT COMMUNICATES TO MALE SURVIVORS THAT “YOUR STORY MATTERS.”

    NEW “VOICES OF HEALING” VIDEO

    The newest video in our “Voices of Healing” series features “TRISTEN.”

    Tristen’s compelling story gives voice to the intersectionalities of nonbinary gender identity, adult sexual victimization, disability justice, and the power of social activism.

    Special thanks to the RUBY STRUVE FUND for financial support to produce “Tristen’s Story.”

    This video is available with English and Spanish subtitles.

    NOVEMBER 20th IS TRANS DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

    In recognition of this important day, we have posted the Simone Ferro Dance Collective video that was produced for the MenHealing Live Launch on 10/3/21. This dynamic stand-alone video is now accessible to view here.

    Trans and nonbinary men, like cisgender men, often have difficulties finding support to heal from sexual trauma. DID YOU KNOW…

    • 66% or more of the transgender population has experienced sexual victimization, many times more than once in their lifetime
    • transgender men and trans-masculine individuals experience higher rates of sexual victimization than their counterparts of trans women and trans-feminine people

    Trans men are welcome at all MenHealing events.

    We acknowledge that trans men are men.

This performance was ground-breaking as the first time in the Met’s 138-year history that they have presented an opera by a Black composer with an all-Black cast of performers, expressing the compelling story of a male survivor of sexual victimization. … Read More

To date, more than 1700 male survivors have joined us, shared their stories, and discovered new tools for healing. This November, MenHealing we will be celebrating our milestone 90th retreat!

    We are honoring this landmark event by appealing to YOU to help us raise $90,000 during the final 90 days of 2021 with our MenHealing: $90K In 90 Days fundraising campaign!

    We have planned a number of activities during this campaign. Here are just two up-coming events.

    NEW
    INSTAGRAM LIVE SERIES: EXPANDING MEN’S HEALING FROM SEXUAL VICTIMIZATION

    Beginning October 5th, Richard Smith will host a new 12-part Instagram Live series featuring discussions about innovative approaches for healing from sexual trauma. Guest speakers will explore a diverse range of perspectives about social and cultural factors that impact survivors' journeys of healing.

    With an awareness that sexual trauma does not happen within a vacuum, each episode will delve into the intersectional ways that sexual trauma is compounded by racial and gender identities, oppression and white supremacy.

    Follow MenHealing on Instagram and look out every Tuesday at 7:00 pm Eastern / 4:00 pm Pacific to see new episodes!


    WOR ALUMNI SUPPORT GROUPS BEGIN

    After months of planning, 32 WOR Alumni have been enrolled in 4 Support Groups. Groups are co-facilitated by Peer Leaders, each of whom are WOR Alumni themselves. The 8 volunteer Peer Leaders are each WOR Alumni themselves. They have received training in group facilitation and will receive on-going supervision from Joanna Colrain (MenHealing Board Chair) and Amy Ellis (Director of the Trauma Resolution & Integration Program, Nova Southeastern University).  These groups are intended to provide additional connection and community-building for WOR Alumni. The financial generosity of MenHealing donors allows us to offer these groups as a free service for Alumni.  We hope to expand the number of these groups in the future and to make them available to non-Alumni as well.

    WOR Updates

    Our recent in-person Level 1 WOR at Alta Lodge, UT. was a great success. This amazing sunset picture was taken during one of our evening dinners and expresses all the energy that was present during our 3-day retreat (this picture was from the sun & clouds, not a fire!).

    Registration for the Hope Springs, OH Level 1 WOR (10/15 – 10/17) closes on Friday, 10/1  Only 3 spots remaining!

    BOARD & FACILITATOR TEAM RETREAT UPDATE

    The Facilitator Team conducted their annual Retreat at Alta Lodge, Utah on August 15th - 17th.  This was the first time we have all been together in person since August 2019; during that expanse of time our team has grown from 14 to 18 Facilitators.  Meanwhile, the Board convened a virtual Retreat on August 20th - 22nd. The Board has also added 4 new members in the last 2 years.  Both Facilitator Team and Board reflect the expanding depth of organizational multiculturalism.

    Facilitators and Board reaffirmed several important commitments that define our organizational culture:

    • Environmental Sustainability - healing the earth must be woven into our work of healing sexual victimization; our activities require an intention to minimize our environmental footprint.
    • Social Justice - we have a responsibility to address social and cultural factors that intersect with sexual victimization; effective healing includes active participation in movement-building efforts to end sexual violation and its intersection with other social justice issues.
    • Multiculturalism - we seek to include people of all colors, ethnicities, abilities, genders, sexualities, and beliefs in our organization as well as in the resources we provide; genuine inclusion and equity requires bold challenges to the status quo.
    • Grassroots Participation - we are committed to honor the wisdom and energies of the survivors whom we serve; WOR Alumni are included in the organizational fabric of MenHealing - as active support staff, board members, and special projects volunteers.

    In future newsletters, we will be announcing events and services being planned for 2022.

    REMAINING WEEKENDS OF RECOVERY DURING 2021

    To maintain COVID safety protocols, we are reducing the number of participants for our remaining in-person WORs. We will also require vaccination and masking.

    Only a few spaces remain for the in-person Level 1 WOR at Alta, UT. on 9/19 - 9/21. Registration closes on 9/4.


    Registrations remain open for the in-person Level 1 WOR at Hope Springs, OH. on 10/15 - 10/17 and for the on-line virtual Level 1 WOR on 11/5 - 11/7.

    Financial Assistance grants are available for all events.

    WEEKENDS OF RECOVERY CELEBRATES 90!

    The inaugural Weekend of Recovery was conducted in September 2001. We have conducted healing retreats for each of the past 20 years. The virtual WOR scheduled for November 2021 is a milestone 90th Weekend/Day of Recovery!!

    We will be launching our 2021 funding campaign on October 3rd. Our campaign this year will be “90K in 90 Days” - we will honor our 90th WOR/DOR by appealing to YOU to help us raise $90,000 during the final 90 days of 2021.

    Did you Know?  COVID shutdowns were implemented just a few short weeks before the date of our initial 2020 WOR. MenHealing was unequivocally committed to maintain uninterrupted service. We quickly educated ourselves about the potential resources of Zoom, we reformatted our protocols to match the opportunities of virtual gatherings, and we re-budgeted our financial resources to meet the challenge. We decreased registration fees for all WOR/DOR events and MenHealing absorbed the  financial responsibility to maintain continuity of our event schedule throughout 2020 and 2021.

    We have demonstrated that our commitment to provide healing resources to male survivors is genuine and bold. During our “90K in 90 Days” campaign we will be appealing to YOU to help us re-build our financial reserves. We hope to surpass our goal of $90,000. 

    Did You Know?  $90,000 will cover the expenses to conduct 3 WORs or $90,000 will provide financial assistance to 90 male survivors with financial hardship who would not otherwise be able to afford attending a WOR.

    If you want to get involved to help us with our Fall campaign this year, please contact Jordan Masciangelo.
