Men of Tears: The Workshop That Teaches Men to Cry
Once a week, a group of men gather in a room in Sausalito, CA, to share their experience and emotions and maybe even cry. They call themselves the “Men of Tears”.
The workshop is organized by public speaking coach Lee Glickstein and therapist Peter Van Dyk. They provide a safe place for men to get in touch with feelings they may have suppressed since childhood. The group is an all-male subsidiary of Water Workers, an organization also headed by Glickstein, which promotes crying as a therapeutic practice. They claim it is a way to way to release stress and reduce anger and violence.
