"Beyond Anger: Reclaim Your Fire!" - the new course in healing your self-care mind-body-heart-spirit.

Mondays online May 1- June 12 at 6:30pm CST. The Twin Cities Men's Center is continuing to offer a much-requested follow-on class for graduates of our popular Men Helping Men with Anger Management classes. "Beyond Anger: Reclaim Your Fire!" is an expert-guided, peer-supported, online-live course that runs for 7 weeks on Mondays 6:30-7:45pm CST, and is offered periodically throughout the year. Adults, all-genders, all-faiths welcome.

Read what a recent participant said about taking this course:

"With just the first class, BEYOND YOUR ANGER blew me away with how much I learned about myself and where my anger evolves. Multiple classes after I began to connect the dots and suddenly, everything clicked. Friends and family have commented on how much my attitude about anger, demeanor, and how I handle myself in stressful situations has changed because of the knowledge and insight that I have learned from this class. If you want to get to the root of your anger and learn more about yourself, then this class is definitely for you!" - Kyle S.

2023 TCMC Annual Meeting Highlights

On Jan 7, 2023, the members of TCMC gathered in a hybrid (in-person/zoom) meeting to review the successes and challenges of the past year, elect new board members, and begin planning for our 47th year of operation. In brief, we weathered the challenges of the pandemic years and have returned full operations. Thanks Chair Tom W. for leading the way!

Most Programs, groups and classes have resumed meeting in-person as well as online video in a hybrid format, which has had the positive side-effect of widening our participation nationally. Recently, one of our groups had men from 5 different states, and our celebrated level 2 Anger Management program now reaches men across Minnesota. We also began a new Beyond Anger: Reclaim Your Fire class for men, again leading the way in men's work. Thanks Dan G.!

Financially, we've recovered from a couple lean years and had a successful fall fund-raising effort. While we are out of the woods, our operation is still lean... but the Treasurer reports we are in good standing for 2023. We welcome Dan M. as our new Treasurer, and Jae A. as our new bookkeeper. And much thanks to all those who donated generously!

Our Outreach program resumed presentations in prisons, although pandemic protocals still make the process dificult. We hope this will ease in the coming years. Men Talk transitioned to entirely digital printing and automated mailing after a couple bumpy issues. That will save TCMC money over time, and promises faster delivery of our news. And our website anticipates new improvements to meet the needs of men across the internet. Thanks Tom S. for your ideas!

Finally, Tom M. continues steadfastly managing the office, handling the calls and emails, posting on social media, and a thousand other things, keeping all the Administration running smoothly. We couldn't do it without you. Thanks Tom M!

IN MEMORIUM - Paula Overby

The Twin Cities Men's Center mourns the loss and celebrates the life of Paula Overby; long-time Men's Center Member, former Board Member, facilitator, author, parent, and LGBTQ+ activist. Paula resided in Eagan, MN, and passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, while running for U. S. Representative.

Paula achieved and overcame much throughout her life. She held multiple college degrees, wrote and published a book, and ran for public office three times between 2008 and 2022. She shared time with others, talking and listening to so many. In addition to the Twin Cities Men's Center, Paula was involved with many other organizations including East Metro Civic Alliance, Our Revolution, and the Land Stewardship Project.

Board Chair, Tom Weaver, recalls, "We did one of the last trainings developed by the U of M Program for Sexual Health as co-leaders at TCMC Location. The University of Minnesota Man-to-Man Sexual Health Seminars was an in-person sexual health education and support program which ran for nearly 20 years."

A ceremony was held on November 3, 2022 for Paula at Mueller Memorial Funeral Home in Saint Paul, MN. In lieu of flowers, donations in Paula's memory will support the family and memorial services. Her obituary can be found at <>.


We are now accepting applications for TCMC's next Anger Management Coordinator. The AM Coordinator is responsible for administration of the program in all of its aspects, including program organizing and scheduling of classes, finding available facilitators, han- dling inquiries from men interested in taking the class, recording registrations, and collecting fees.
