Silence fell over the room, he started by saying, with a shake in his voice, “A lot of you wouldn’t know this but I’ve been struggling a lot all year.” This courageous bloke finally let go of what he’s been tightly holding onto for an entire cricket season, his whole body reacted as he cried with force, in front of the room. One of his teammates broke the silence and said: “take ya time brother, we’re right here!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "There was a shift in the team tonight, you could feel it”, one of the senior players said post-workshop, “powerful bloody stuff.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m honoured to have witnessed the shift - Kayne, Facilitator, Tomorrow Man This workshop would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsor @gotcha4life 🙏🏼 #tomorrowman #gotcha4life .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #challengethestereotype #talkwithgravity #buildemotionalmuscle #rewritethecode #secondthirdquestions #steptotheline #breaktherules⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holdtheline #emotionalmuscle #wearyourtearswithpride⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #breaknewground #mentalhealthworkshops #itaintweaktospeak #menshealth #mentalhealthmatters #mensmentalhealth #matesformentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #menswellbeing #sport #cricket #emotionalhealth #positivemasculinity

Our aim is to provide men with a safe space and a toolkit to have honest conversations about the secret life of us with their mates, being able to be vulnerable with no judgment. One workshop at a time we will change the stereotypes associated with being a man, creating a generation of young men who know it's ok to speak up. #tomorrowman #bethechange ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #challengethestereotype #talkwithgravity #buildemotionalmuscle #rewritethecode⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #secondthirdquestions #steptotheline #breaktherules⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holdtheline #emotionalmuscle #wearyourtearswithpride⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #breaknewground #positivemasculinity #men #masculinity #redefiningmasculinity #manhood #menswellness #modernmanhood #healthymasculinity #nextgenmen #mensworkshop #mentalhealthworkshops

Meet Tavian, one of the many exceptional blokes we met at Mornington Secondary, telling us his views on what it means to be a man and our workshop. Legend 👏

St. Pauls in Manly is breathtakingly beautiful, overlooking the harbour and city. The school has a proud history, being formed way back in 1929. When we were in the historical admin building, we noticed a pic of Maria Von Trapp visiting the school in 1964. The young men we worked with were super impressive and shared powerful stories of life lessons learnt from making mistakes or bad choices. Every time we visit this school, we’re blown away by the diversity of tales that we hear. Cheers St. Pauls!

These Blokes Nights are so humbling and powerful, and they are building. Blokes from all walks of life are rocking up to speak, hear from other blokes and create a toolkit for holding conversations of gravity, weight and depth with the men in there lives, young and old. Before the session kicked off, I had spoken to familiar faces from three different Blokes Nights across Sydney over the past few weeks that had returned with their mates or their sons. A 60-year-old man sitting with an 18-year-old that he'd never met, I could see the younger bloke was crying at the end, and the older man stood and said he'd never been so inspired. A barrel-chested rugby coach that shuddered through tears talking about the ripple effect of his wife's friend taking their life. The 16-year-old boy that courageously took the risk to tell a room of 150 people that he was suicidal, and his dad that felt the need to come up after and say you've saved a boy's life tonight, we'll be at the doctor's first thing tomorrow to get a safety plan. We are multiple generations of men taking gutsy steps beyond a narrow stereotype, trying to discover how we can change the stats and learn to talk. - Tom Harkin This event would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsors @gotcha4life 🙏 .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #challengethestereotype #talkwithgravity #buildemotionalmuscle #rewritethecode #tomorrowman⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #secondthirdquestions #steptotheline #breaktherules⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holdtheline #emotionalmuscle #wearyourtearswithpride⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #breaknewground #positivemasculinity #men #masculinity #redefiningmasculinity #manhood #challengethestereotype #menswellness #modernmanhood #healthymasculinity #nextgenmen #suicideprevention #blokesnight

"The lads at Mornington Secondary College are straight up AWESOME. Today we launched into three separate workshops working with all 100 of the Year 10 boys. Sometimes you walk out of a workshop, and something someone says stays with you, sometimes you walk out and just feel like it was rock solid, and sometimes you walk out thinking the dudes are just epic legends! Today all of us left our workshops and couldn’t stop talking about the powerful blokes we’d just worked with, we all thought we had the best group of lads by far. Such a solid group of gents that really went above and beyond for one another. Was an honour to hangout legends!" - Belly

Recently, we've been doing a lot of work in Parramatta, the heart of the western suburbs of Sydney, a highly industrial, working class and multicultural suburb. A couple of weeks ago, we accidentally booked some really grim accommodation, a dirty room above a pub with communal dunnies. We arrived late at night, we were starving and Belly was craving Mexican food. We turned up to the food court and it was closed so we jumped back on the road and drove past, what looked like a truck stop with a large, diverse group of people queuing up for food. The vibe was interesting, so we jumped out and discovered Chubby Buns Burgers. It was the best burger we've ever had and is now a must-eat for us whenever we hit Parramatta. 🍔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @chubbybunsburgers

If you haven't seen it already, go and see this incredible doco. Backtrack Boys is true grassroots, heart lead, front-line work with wild and magic young men. It reminds me a lot of the work that won my heart to this vocation. We need so many more blokes like Bernie in this world. His rare calming disposition around the wildest of young people, wading in and get knee deep in the shit and calmly weathering the storm whilst subtly reflecting a potential in the young people long enough for them to begin trusting it might be true and worth excavating out of the dirt.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It really illustrates the power of handing purpose and responsibility to young men who are often thought underserving or incapable. The wisdom and poetry of these young blokes trying to break through well-worn defence and attack is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, a wild and rewarding ride that puts it all in perspective. Don't miss it. - Tom Harkin, Tomorrow Man Founder⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @backtrackboysfilm⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #menshealth #mentalhealthmatters #mensmentalhealth #matesformentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #wellbeing #menswellbeing #positivemasculinity #men #masculinity #redefiningmasculinity #manhood #challengethestereotype #menswellness #backtrackboysfilm

Pat was one of the many legends we met at our community activation in Wagga Wagga back in October. Here he talks about what it means to be a man, we love his take on it. Go Pat!

Our workshops aim to make young men strong, not just physically but emotionally. Strong enough to talk about how they are feeling whether good or bad, to sit through tough conversations and talk with gravity, to be there for their mates, to own their story and be confident with who they are 💪 #buildemotionalmuscle ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #challengethestereotype #talkwithgravity #buildemotionalmuscle #rewritethecode #tomorrowman⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #secondthirdquestions #steptotheline #breaktherules⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holdtheline #emotionalmuscle #wearyourtearswithpride⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #breaknewground #schoolworkshops #mentalhealthworkshops #boysmentalhealth #positivemasculinity #men #masculinity #redefiningmasculinity #manhood #menswellness #menswellbeing #emotionalhealthmatters

There were some solid conversations happening at our Blokes Night in Penrith last night. It takes courage to show up, and even greater courage to open up. This is how we change, change the rules for ourselves and pave the way for a new rulebook for the men of tomorrow. Big up to all the men who showed up last night.

The fellas at Kooringal High in Wagga were so damn hilarious, we were in stitches for the first 10 minutes of the session. We needed to laugh after 3 pretty intense days of delivery. Once we got the laughs and bullshit out of the way, it was showtime, time to have a yarn. One of the most confident, athletic and charismatic guys spoke about his experiences with anxiety. For most of the Step to the Line exercise, he couldn’t stand still, tapping and stomping his feet in a hypnotic rhythm. When he began to share his story it was like a cathartic release. His entire body was shaking. He began to centre himself, focus on his breathing and by the time he finished his story, for the first time in the workshop, he was completely still. It taught the guys, that even those who seem most confident and carefree, also have struggles and need some support - Ryder This workshop would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsor @gotcha4life 🙏🏼 #tomorrowman #gotcha4life #steptotheline ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #challengethestereotype #talkwithgravity #buildemotionalmuscle #rewritethecode⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #secondthirdquestions #breaktherules⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holdtheline #emotionalmuscle #wearyourtearswithpride⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #breaknewground #schoolworkshop #schoolworkshops #positivemasculinity #men #masculinity #menswellness #redefiningmasculinity #manhood #challengethestereotype #schoolworkshop

An incredible day yesterday with Penrith champion Sean Hogan at the inaugural Sportsmans Lunch he organised, raising funds for Gotcha4Life. When you meet men like him you see so much good in the future for blokes. He spoke with emotion, passion, but most of all he is as genuine as an RM William boot. He got behind the Tomorrow Man cause because his young bloke had lost a mate and he could see the fear and pain in his son's eyes, he had to do something. Sean Hogan is one of those men who you’d want in the trenches, one of those men you want in the passenger seat on a two-day road trip. Sean Hogan is doing it. He is changing lives by leading and being a man to look up too!
