Owen explores the intersection of human history and masculinity and reflects on what 10,000 years of progress has cost us emotionally and what we can learn from it.

Owen’s journey in healing his dyslexia and Asperger’s Syndrome led him to see a bigger challenge, one that we all face: how to connect emotionally with others. Like many men, Owen was never taught how to relate emotionally to others as a man. Through twenty years designing and redesigning men’s groups, he found a way to provide to men what they were missing.

Owen now teaches men how to start their own men’s groups and how to lead men’s groups. The documentary movie, About Men, reveals the innermost workings of the Sandpoint Men’s Group, the group he started in 2005. And in his book Grow Up: A Man’s Guide to Masculine Emotional Intelligence, Owen teaches men – and women – what men were never taught.
