GBTI+ Statement of Inclusion

Menergy, Common Ground and Victorian Men’s Wellbeing welcome males of diversity and those identifying as Gay, Bisexual, Heterosexual, Intersex, Queer and Transmen.

To be able to share, confide and be so open with men that I had only just met,

says a great deal for Menergy and more importantly for your own individual characters.”

What is Menergy

Menergy is the Victorian arm of a national not-for-profit organisation Mens Wellbeing that has been providing men’s events and men’s support groups for over 20 years.

Menergy is an all inclusive 3 day Men’s Gathering wilderness retreat that provides workshops and ritual around celebrating masculinity and helps men discover more of themselves in a nurturing, supported and trusted way. The detailed program we run has been developed for over 15 years and has seen thousands of men grow and learn through this process.

At the heart of a Menergy weekend is the opportunity to attend and partake in many of the myriad of workshops that are focused on men’s health and wellbeing. These workshops help men to be empowered in our masculinity through vulnerability, support, and a greater understanding of trusting ourselves and our unique gifts as men.

Menergy Committee

The committee is made up of a dedicated group of volunteers who attended previous Menergy’s and were moved to step in and offer service to other men and have dedicated the year to putting on this event. The time and effort put in is not repaid by any financial return but from being part of a committed vision to assist men to connect and gather in constructed, empowering, and fun ways.

The committee are here to support you and any other man who needs assistance. So If you, or a friend, feels they needs some help in attending i.e. financial or other, please contact us at Menergy and we will help you where we can. P.N. We have a limited number of concession tickets.

If you too feel compelled to be involved in the committee and be rewarded for being a part of an amazing event and learn about yourself on the way, you too can volunteer to be on the committee next year.

To find out more please call one of the committee members or email us your interest.

Example of 2017 Workshops

The workshops offered at Menergy are done so by men who are currently offering services and programs in the community and have come to Menergy to share their knowledge and skills with you. No facilitators are paid and they too pay a fee to attend.

These men are usually deeply committed to serving men and helping you attain the best out of yourself. All facilitators are here to provide a safe and unique opportunity for yourself and other men to learn and be supported by those around you. It can be a very powerful and transformative experience to participate in the workshops as a group of men. At all times safety, respect and integrity are maintained for all those attending.

Trauma, Trust and Sex ~ Mike Lowe

Many people are affected by sexual trauma, either directly or indirectly via a partner or parents. One in three Australian women and one in five men experience sexual trauma by the age of 16. Traumatic experiences can deeply affect our ability to be present intimately with our own bodies, energies and emotions, and with others. The memory of a traumatic experience is held in the body, so that when the body experiences a pattern similar to the original trauma – conscious […]

Finding just right words ~ Cameron Semmens

We all have stories to tell. We all have pivotal moments in our lives. That’s what I’m interested in. Those key moments, those crossroads, that can never be returned to (for better or for worse). I want to help you try and capture some of these moments in considered words – both for your own growth and to help others relate to your personal journey, that will so […]
