Our Circle of Men was formed as an in-person Men's Group in Fulton County, New York. We would gather weekly for 12 weeks. The first year we met on Friday evenings and the second year we met on Monday evenings. 

 In our second year as a result of Covid-19, we started having  Virtual Gatherings on ZOOM. We have continued honoring our mission and vision for our Circle of Men through our virtual gatherings, which have allowed us to continue connecting, conversing and supporting one another during these unsettling times. Another change that Covid 19 gave birth to was that members wanted to extend our gatherings from 12 weeks to every 2 weeks, indefinitely

2023 marks our fifth year and we currently gather in person biweekly at 305 Jansen Avenue, Johnstown, NY 12095. Monday evenings 6:00-8:00 pm. 



Beyond our formal virtual gatherings, members make an effort to stay in touch through email messages, phone calls, text messaging, video chats, one-on-one zoom calls and pre-Covid 19 one on one gatherings. As a group we also look for opportunities to gather socially. Thus far, we have done bowling, ice cream socials, museum visits, restaurant gatherings (Texas de Brazil was a hit), breakfast gatherings, and BBQ.

We meet every two weeks on Monday evenings from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M.  We are an Open Men's Group. Men who identify themselves as Men are welcomed. We welcome all men regardless of race,  ethnicity, religion, color, creed, nationality, political affiliations, economic status. or sexual orientation. We support and practice Universal Principles such as: affirming human dignity, love, compassion, respect, civility, individual freedom, individual conscience, human flourishing, benevolence, generosity, hospitality, altruism, integrity, honesty, truthfulness, understanding, reason, growth, responsibility and spirituality. Our current members are from Central New York,  Maryland, Pennsylvania and other locations.

We maintain that even though, this is a Men's Group for men who identify themselves as men, this Men's Group is NOT a group  for every man, just for particular men. In other words, we want to attract like-minded men who are passionate about exploring how to create a balanced, healthy, grounded life. We focus on emotional work that leads to personal growth and development.  We are not a country club or social club. 

If you are interested in seeing what we are about  please contact us via Email or at the Meetup site. We are here to welcome, encourage, support, challenge and celebrate you within a brotherhood of men who create a positive and safe, but challenging environment. The Meetup site is our main promotional  platform that we use for our upcoming scheduled gatherings.

There is a suggested $10.00 donation per gathering. First time visitors are always welcomed without giving a donation.
