Being a Man at Amherst

Keefe Campus Center, Women's & Gender Center

Not a therapy group… Not a political initiative… Not a seminar.

An opportunity for men to talk openly, privately and without judgment with one another about our experiences as men.

Love… Sex… Relationships… Friends… Families… Women… War… Athletics… Politics… Power… Sexual Politics… Fraternities… Careers… Music… Alcohol… Sadness… Laughter… The Meaning of Life…

Everything’s on the table.

Bring ideas, concerns, interests and passions to share. All affiliations and non-affiliations are welcome.

The discussions will be facilitated by Dr. McFadden and Dr. Phillips of the Counseling Center.

They are co-sponsored by the Counseling Center and the Women's & Gender Center.

Insight Meditation Group

Chapin Hall, Chapel

Whether you have meditated a long time or have never meditated, come join us for this time of practice together. Come to relax and quiet your mind, to learn how to experience less suffering and stress in your life, to explore Buddhist philosophy and psychology, or to talk about what it means to awaken in this life and to live from compassion and awareness.

Russian Film Series: "Short Stories" (2012)
