"Our ancestors had tribes, communities, or extended families for support; most men today feel alone."
It’s as natural and necessary for you to need your support team as it is to get a good night’s sleep. Sure, you may have your mom, girlfriend, or wife to help – which is great. But do you have band of brothers?
You and your partner need you to get that band. Your partner needs it as much as you need it, because she (or he) can’t do everything for you. Most likely, your struggles are the labors of life. Loss, challenges, and crisis are natural occurrences. But the healing process is more intense and longer when we go it alone.
"If you keep facing the same challenges over and over, or your challenges are becoming overwhelming, it’s time to step up your support structure. Rather than suffer in silence, you can actually enjoy the company of other men being real. You will learn that your authenticity is actually a gift to other men."
Step up to a new level. Take charge, start your own men’s group. Break the old patters of stoic self-reliance. Shift those ongoing fights with your partner. Discover how to shift a boss that won’t let up. Connect to the lost passion that fueled your drive. Find the capacity to go for what you want.
"Uncover what men in men’s groups know: that other men want what you want—a group of men they can trust. They want to fill a hole in their lives. They want a brotherhood."
We grew up having friends who we looked forward to being with. It didn’t matter what we were doing, it was that we were doing with our guys.
You now have a chance to upgrade your boyhood gang to a brotherhood of men. You now can have a group of men who have your back, who witness your failures and successes with the compassion of a close friend, and you can have a band of brothers who get you laughing to the point it hurts.
After 40 years in the making, Owen Marcus and the Free to Win team produced a system that will give you a powerful men’s group. Weaving multiple traditions, principles, and practices, Free to Win’s Group Leadership Training (GLT) gives you your guidebook to a new journey of brotherhood.
We all perform better when we are accountable to someone
Whom do you serve?
On how to be a man, husband, and leader
Whether you are in crisis or doing great, there is always that next level of performance. We hone our game on the court. Now you can do the same around your Masculine Emotional Intelligence (MEI) and your brotherhood.
In fact, get in such good MEI shape that when a situation goes from bad to worse, you are prepared. Your emotional leadership abilities allow you to step up when others are backing away. Take what you see as your emotional weakness and turn it into your secret weapon.
Transform difficult relationships by learning how going into your emotional truth, and then expressing it, sets everyone free. Your men’s group is your weekly MEI team workout. You develop muscles you didn’t even know you had.
Given the principles and their related skills, you can teach and lead the men of your group to a new place in their lives. These powerful skills will naturally transfer to your professional and personal life. You will become the leader whom others follow.
We created this manual so you can create a strong group that continues to grow on its own. You will strengthen your leadership abilities as other men have done from leading these deep groups. When there is no place to hide, you show up.
The desire to create a powerful brotherhood is primal. Ever since we were in tribes, we had our hunting parties. In modern society, we lack that kind of brotherhood. A men’s group will give you that.
The manual first gives you the Five Key Aspects of Learning and Development. You discover what few people know about developing emotional awareness and power. You get a framework that can be your shortcut to using your emotions as your ally.
The manual then moves into thirteen progressive weeks where each week goes into depth teaching you and your group principles and skills that will help you become emotionally strong.
The entire manual is easy to understand and master. It’s not some document of psychobabble or “New Age” affirmations. Nor is it therapy. The GLT is less designed to teach rigid techniques and more to empower you to develop your craft of MEI and group dynamics.
The unique approach developed by Owen Marcus, the Sandpoint Men’s Group, and Free to Win became the go-to source for deep groups. The documentary film, About Men, is entirely about the Sandpoint Men’s Group and its approach to men’s work. With your copy of GLT you have the foundation to creating your amazing group just as other have done.
From working with people and developing and leading groups, I learned some powerful short cuts to success. This program applies these short cuts to teaching powerful approaches to starting and running a successful group.
Here’s a little secret: the skills you learn sponsoring a strong group will transform your relationships at home and work. You will discover with your group how to turn what is most men’s biggest liability – their emotions – into your biggest asset.
It’s one thing to “be emotional”; it’s another thing to be emotional in a masculine manner. Men who possess Masculine Emotional Intelligence (MEI) have relationships that just work. Collaboration is a given. Both men and women want to follow a man who has MEI. He is real.
We know of no better way to develop MEI than in a successful men’s group. I know of no better way to deepen the mastery of MEI than to take on starting and initially leading a group.
This is not some slapped together ebook. It’s 63,000 words… it’s a full blown book.
The content comes from in-depth study and practice of somatic psychology, NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming), group dynamics, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) therapy, family systems principles, corporate team building, masculine emotionality, and men’s groups.
What is in the manual evolved over hundreds of hours sitting with men. For more than ten years, every week our groups continued to refine what we are now making available. We learned from our mistakes what doesn’t work. We learned from our successes what works for men. Other groups around the US use our protocols, and they are rocking.
The first part of the manual lays out the key principles and skills of having a successful group. The second half gives you 13 weeks of detailed instruction on what to do each week in your meeting to create your group.
During our group history, we experienced great challenges and huge breakthroughs for men and the group. There were times in our group’s evolution where it looked like we wouldn’t have a group. Following the principles and skills of this manual, we transformed what was looking like the end of the group to an even more powerful group.
"This Free to Win system to Men's Groups is over 10 years in development. Here what others are saying about this approach:"
About 8 months ago my wife and I found out she has breast cancer. This has been particularly frightening for me as I clearly have no control in the outcome. My place in the Men's group has offered me support through all I have faced over the past 7 months - I can see the blessings that have resulted in my marriage -directly related to the work I have done in this group
My family benefits from this, as I am a better husband and father. My organization benefits from this, as I am a better mentor and director. My community and the Earth benefit from this, as I am better steward. Sandpoint Men’s Group supports me to live the life of my dreams.
The work we do in mens group, has allowed me to have a free space to express emotions and feelings, that in the outside world I haven't felt comfortable expressing. Also it is helping me take responsibility in my life and stop being the victim or the back seat driver and instead live from my passions and my heart.
Having men who challenge me to come with my whole self, and challenging me to grow has been such a blessing in my life, cause left to my own devices I would just live a mediocre life which is not what I want. Deep down, I want to help people, inspire others, love fully, be happy, and live from the inside out; and the mens group

"I wish I had the GLT when I started. I would have paid much more because I knew how much work was involved in starting a successful group. Splitting the cost of the GLT between the men would have been a bargain.”
P.S.:Take the shared risk, try out the GLT for a month. Don’t learn that you are unprepared for the challenges of starting and leading a group.
