This book presents a program to help you build a foundation for your healing.
Today we are facing many unique challenges that we were not prepared to face with our limited knowledge. Delving into the collective knowledge of the group enables us to complement what we know and reach satisfying results.
You might have countless people in your lives to spend time with, but you are looking for that support group to talk about things that are happening in your life.
The purpose of the men’s group is to help you grow and thrive by getting and offering help to the group members regardless of which stage in your life you are at. The group meets biweekly to share what is happening in their lives and receive guidance on how to best navigate their situations. It is your best and most effective way to better your life and create a long-lasting friendship with the group members.
You can expect the group to be about getting together to chat about life.
The group is confidential and a safe place to discuss any situation you may be facing. Meetings are held in small groups of 5-10 people.
The group is facilitated by Dr. Hamdy El-Rayes who has extensive experience in facilitating group meetings. You will feel welcomed and appreciated to receive and share your personal experience.
In every meeting, you will update the group on what is happening in your life and get support from the group members and the facilitator by offering feedback and perspective on whatever issues or opportunities you may have.
You will be able to talk about things that you are not fully comfortable discussing with others in your life. You will avoid burdening your partner, family, or best friend with your problems or save yourself the embarrassment of sharing them in your social circle.
During the group meetings, you are not obligated to speak, but the group will support you and make you feel welcomed when you do communicate.
You will be able to see the issues as they are with openness because the first step to solving a problem is to see it as it is.
A member in your support group might share a certain situation that they went through and what they learned from it. As a result, the group will help you grow, get you motivated, and help you connect with people on another level.
You will grow by sharing and active listening to others’ unique situations, you will find different perspectives and knowledge that will serve you for the rest of your life.
You will meet members that vary in age, orientation, profession, cultural background, and the stage they are at in their lives. Having a more diverse group of members will help you see different perspectives and approaches to addressing your issues.
Your time will be well spent discussing issues that we all face at one time or another in our lives.
The group will discuss any issue that concerns you and may include but not be limited to personal conflicts, a family conflict or a divorce, a business or a career issue, a conflict with a business partner, a health issue, communication issue, etc.
Every meeting will be different depending on what the members bring up.

Most of us struggle with family relationships. We have a deep desire to get along with our families and conflicts may drain our energy and our ability to cope. The group can help you get down to the roots of the problems and may be able to help you resolve them.

This group will allow you to know yourself better. This step enables you to change your perspective about yourself and the world to become the best you. You will feel better about yourself and the world.
The group will be the place for your to befriend others who are going down the same path as you. It is too boring to be hanging out with the same people you did in the past years, going to the same places, and talking about the same things. Going to the group helps you make friendships with guys who are on the same path as you.
In the group, you will be able to challenge yourself to be more in control of your life, understanding your emotions, and managing them. When we often get upset about something, the emotion that you are feeling might not be coming from the actual situation that is occurring. So it’s important to understand your emotions and learn how to better manage them.
We need help to take action on an ongoing basis to achieve our goals by being held accountable along the way.
Loneliness is a major problem for most of us because it makes facing common challenges a lot more difficult. You have no one to bounce things off of. The isolation creates pressure because you have to figure it out all on your own. Instead of looking at a problem that you’re facing by yourself, you’ll have a team of cheerleaders who support you along your journey.
