is a psychologist and director of University Counseling Services at California State University, Northridge. Mark has been facilitating men's groups and workshops since 1982. He is the past- president of Division 51 Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity of APA.
Throughout their lives, men are encouraged to play by the “rules of masculinity.” These rules about what is acceptable for men often involve inhibiting the spontaneous, creative, vulnerable, authentic, and care-free aspects of the self. This five-day experience is intended to help men re-discover the pure joy of feeling alive. As a group, we will explore what it means to be a fully present and authentic man. By sharing our stories of challenges, relationships, hardships, dreams, and desires, we will build a community of trust, permission, and healing.
