FEEDBACK:

“Wow. I came away from our men's circle this morning full of joy and purpose. Feeling worthy. It's great to be alive. Blessed.”

“Just wanted to say how truly grateful and blessed I am to have and know such a fantastic bunch of brothers!!

The outpouring of aroha, tautoko and whakawhanāungatanga today actually caught me by surprise and brought out a few tears of gratitude."

Thank you for having my back, even though I didn't know I needed it.”

"Having a safe space where I can open up about what's on my mind and have such amazing men to support me."

"The benefit of others experiences. Having a shoulder to lean on during times of uncertainty and hardship. Finding others are going through similar issues."

"My health was on the decline diabetes anxiety depression ect I've lost 12kgs since joining and I've so enjoyed the Tuesday morning korero sessions and I've made sum really goof friends from s2s who I pm in our own chat room 10x daily thank you for this group."

"Having back up, having a safe place to share, men helping men big shoulders"

"Being able to appreciate what others are going through"

"For me it has been a great encouragement and experience for me. The teachings I've learnt about managing and dealing with anxiety have been very helpful and I think just knowing I'm not alone is very uplifting. There's not many men out there in the world that can talk about their feelings but this group is such a great safe space to talk and listen to other powerful stories/testimonies."

"Having a group of like minded strong friends."

"A place men can actually feel safe and comfortable to be open and not judged"

"First time I have ever felt like a space was created truly for men to be authentic and open, neve have seen or felt anything like this before."

"Being heard and a safe space to share"

"After many years being over seas being able to reconnect with the men of my pacific island culture and the diversity of age and life experience"

"Standing Shoulder to shoulder with other men who need help"

"A space my Samoan culture brings connection and the strength to attend and be vulnerable as we know PI struggle to show weakness"

"Allowing me to feel comfortable to share my heavy shoulders in a space that connects with me and my Pacific culture

First time I have ever been able to be apart of a group to ease my burden due to feeling like I am part of the aiga and my culture is respected"

"Very thankful to Filipo and Charmaine for providing a safe space. Truly unique environment that works well for this men's circle."

"I just want to thank you both Char and Filipo for creating this safe space. I've been a lone wolf for a while and always held my emotions and anger deep within. This group has shown me how to release it safely as well as talk about my feelings more. The gym and the group have been a life saver since I joined. I'll never be able to repay you and your whānau for helping me navigate these past 3-4 months. I'm truly indebted to you all 🙏"

"Some amazing people involved. Thanks for this program"

"Excellent environment. Wide range of tāne that you can relate to. Broke down barriers to share kōrero and created a safe space. Filipo (and Jerry at boxing) presence makes it feel safe because I trust them. Awesome to not be alone in the journey. Ngā mihinui e te whānau o SnapBack Boxing mō te manaakitanga ki a matou tāne ma."
