Tribe Men's Group

Monthly Meeting

Honest. Raw. Thought-provoking.

At the Tribe Men's Group, each month, founders Todd Adams and Frank Naugo present a topic to Tribe members to ignite a conversation. The format is casual and relaxed; the conversation real and practical. The guys who attend are the type you might grab a beer and watch a game with or sit alongside at your kids soccer game. In addition to the specific topic, we open it up to have honest conversations about the challenges we all face, any specific issues we might be wrestling with and opportunities for growth. The Tribe was created to support one another – that’s why we’re here.

Past Meeting Topics: Depression, Pain vs. Suffering, Emotional Labor, Accountability, #Metoo, and much more.

Yearly Retreat

Each year we take time out of our busy schedules to reconnect with ourselves, with one another and with nature. For a few days away from our normal distractions, we create a space that fosters authentic conversations, personal discovery, youthful play and deep connection to support your personal growth journey and to form bonds that will stand the test of time.

It is not our job to remain whole. We came to lose our leaves like the trees, and be born again, drawing up from the great roots.

I’ve been a member of the Tribe for about a year and absolutely love this group. It’s a place where you can talk with other guys in a safe place about complicated topics and learn skills that help me grow and become a better Dad/Husband/Person. The other beneficial part is that I can learn from other men that have gone through similar things in their life. It’s amazing how helpful it is to learn from another dad/husband in the group, really helps to keep the tough things in life in perspective.

Tribe Leadership

Tribe Mens Group was founded by Todd Adams and Frank Naugo. It began Feb 2012 in Todd's living room with a few others longing for authentic conversation and connection amongst men. Since that 1st meeting seven years ago, they’ve brought men together every month in an effort to break down barriers and redefine the current concept of masculinity.
