The first group focuses on men’s experiences of and thoughts about masculinities, male relationships and generally what it means to be a man in today’s world. It is open to any student who identifies as a male.

A variety of mindfulness-based contemplative practices will be covered in the second group, with the aims of enhancing psychological awareness, reducing stress and anxiety, and developing emotional attunement and acceptance. This group is open to all students.

There is no cost associated with participation in either of these groups. Interested students should contact Brown at 541-962-3744 or tbrown@eou.edu.
