Men’s Weekend Gatherings

See Upcoming Events

Men Supporting Men

Our gatherings offer a safe, non-judgemental, supportive space where men can explore connection, challenges and exercises that facilitate real and lasting change.

Men attend aged from 18 to 80+ from all walks of life, careers and social backgrounds. We find there is no ‘typical’ gathering attendee. What we do find is the men who attend are usually seeking a better way to discover themselves and a better way to live their lives.

The Mark Purcell Memorial Fund

We keep a fund of money aside to help men who cannot afford our listed ticket prices for weekend gatherings. You can make a tax deductible donation directly to this fund from your credit card. Please contact our office if you wish to make donations over $500.

What Men Say

  • Michael

    I learnt what being a man really is, I don’t judge others and I respect their beliefs, this has changed my outlook on life.

  • Mark, Wakerley

    Being from the country and now living in the city I found things quite different (and difficult) at times. Common ground has helped me understand myself and taught me to be much more open, a great experience and highly recommendable.

  • Shane, Ocean Shores

    The nine week Common Ground process had a profound effect on my life. It gave me deep connection with other men, healed my wounds with my father and helped me to see the "stories" and belief systems which had been programmed into me which I allowed to run my life. The facilitation was excellent with three facilitators for twenty men. Being delivered over nine weeks gave time for strong bonds to be welded between us. We still meet weekly after 2 and a half years.

  • Peter, Ferny Grove

    Common Ground showed me how to be real. No more attempting to be "normal."

  • Ben, Durack

    My reason for attending common ground was that I wanted to better deal with my anger and my addictions. In the process of exploring these things, I managed to quit my job and take my business full time. The men's group that followed the course helped give me the support and self belief to tackle things in my life I never thought I was capable of.

  • Warren, Mitchelton

    I completed a Common Ground course in 2006 and through this I discovered that I was not alone, that fallibility is OK and that we all have more in common than we can possibly imagine.

  • Adrian, Mansfield

    I went to Common Ground to help me get through my divorce. It also gave me a whole new world where I can deeply understand myself and from there consciously create a wonderful life I didn't know even existed.

  • David, Wynnum

    I'd lost my purpose. Common Ground gave me a way to find it and a group of friends to support me.

  • Rowland, Wynnum

    Common Ground has given me more understanding of why I do this things I do in my life. It has help me with my integrity and given me a platform to share my life experiences/challenges with other men. I found the program hugely therapeutic and would recommend it to other young men.
