A key objective of Melbourne Men’s Group Inc. is to promote men’s personal growth. As part of our commitment, we actively support the Man’s Inner Journey (MIJ) workshop presented each year since 1998. MIJ is a live-in experience held near Melbourne, an opportunity to increase self-awareness, promote inner peace and give new power and wholeness to your life and all your relationships. ‘Gold standard transformational. Kind, caring, challenging, safe. A gift to every man!’ ‘Thank you, the work you do is just transformative. Pure. Simple. Fact’. To view feedback from workshop participants, see the video and written testimonials below.
Who is MIJ for? The workshop is suitable for any man of any age, any career who is seeking to understand more of himself, develop and grow. MIJ offers a unique blend of information and experience to deliver profound insight into the personal beliefs, attitudes, influences and patterns of behaviour that impact on how you see the world and the quality of your life outcomes.

Man's Inner Journey Testimonials
The most transformative program I have ever experienced. MIJ should be mandatory in all secondary schools! It was a blessing to attend the MIJ course.
Gold standard transformational. Kind, caring, challenging, safe. A gift to every man!
I see the world through new eyes. I now know I can make a positive impact on the people around me, including myself by listening to my heart.
I can’t think of anything more important for men to be doing right now than this.
The program was out of this world. I was amazed at the changes I felt and the healing I did. The outcome is fabulous. Words escape me.
This was the best program I have ever done and I am so blessed to have great people offer this support.
Words can not do MIJ justice!
The best thing I’ve done for myself .. maybe ever! What a powerful weekend. The hosts and participants created such a warm and safe environment for personal reflection and development. It’s difficult to articulate all of the benefits. I recommend this to all men.
Words cannot do justice to the total sum of a weekend that was beyond an intellectual experience – the whole was greater than the sum of the parts.
Awesome in every respect. Sometimes the journey is more important than the destination … and any journey is all about who you share it with. Thank You brothers from the bottom of my h
The Man’s Inner Journey experience was entirely real, dynamic, yet very sensitive to support men on their healing journey to recover authenticity, creativity, inner peace and a state of grace. The workshop opens the door to a new way of being a man that has absolute integrity, bringing harmony to one’s sense of personal power, mature masculinity, one’s sense of self, restoring real confidence and purpose that permeates the most important relationships in our life. Thank you MIJ. What an extraordinary gift!
The weekend was probably one of the most significant of my life, except maybe the one when I was born… Thank you, the work you do is just transformative. Pure. Simple. Fact.
Silence is the only word that could encompass the greatness of the event. No language would express what this workshop was all about!
There’s a road map to happiness and contentment and I believe that Man’s Inner Journey can show you how to get there. I have seen a tremendous difference to the quality of my life thanks to MIJ. Men don’t think about it too much – just go and do this workshop and you’ll see the difference yourself.
The workshop exceeded all my expectations. I would encourage any man who wants to explore and connect with themselves (and other men) on a deeper level to take the step in what is undoubtedly a life-changing experience.
What an amazing journey MIJ took me on! For me the weekend was a roller coaster ride of emotion and deep learning about myself. I could write a thousand word essay and not begin to scratch the surface of how my mind was stretched and how many invaluable tools I have gained from MIJ. However, no amount of words could ever do it justice. MIJ is just something you need to experience for yourself.
This was a profound weekend where I learnt a lot about myself. I unpacked baggage that I didn’t know I had, and I learnt that it’s ok to not have all the answers and to be a bit vulnerable. It has changed my outlook and my relationships with the important people in my life. Thanks to the convenors, organisers and support people for putting together such a powerful workshop. May the “Journey” continue.
MIJ is thoughtful, grounded, practical and well structured. A wonderful and personal affirmation for me and a call to action to be more involved in men’s journeys wherever I can help. The facilitators are extraordinary people with open hearts and an amazing ability to hold and create a sacred space.
This workshop was the most life changing thing I have ever done for myself, and the people around me – 10/10.
15 out of 10 – life changing. I am lost for words.
This workshop was the best thing I have ever done for myself, and by extension my family, hands down!!
An amazing experience every man owes it to himself. I loved the entire weekend from start to finish and didn’t want it to stop!
Awesome – the entire weekend was life changing. The facilitators were validating, open, understanding and wise. Thank You.
This weekend was the most powerful thing I have ever done for myself and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to regain my life. Thank you.
Pure Joy. It is a true journey – when it was over I looked at the familiar with new eyes!
