How MELD Programs Were Built

Building What Hadn’t Been Built

Owen Marcus, seeking not just change but a fundamental reimagining of life, laid the foundation of this transformative approach. His journey started before he created the Sandpoint Men’s Group, which evolved into what became EVRYMAN, and now MELD, embodying a powerful method for life renovation.

From the start, men would see our work and say, “I’ve never seen anything like this. How do I learn how to do it?” The MELD team unpacked what makes this work powerful in creating our programs and retreats.

The Foundation

This renovation journey is supported by rigorous research by behavioral physiology and attachment theory researchers and therapy innovators, allowing MELD to offer unprecedented training and events. Owen has been at the forefront of applying leading-edge research to practical, life-changing applications for over three decades.

Our team’s wealth of experience, gained through thousands of hours spent participating in and leading men’s groups, has fueled our personal growth and the continuous refinement of our methods. These experiences act as our laboratory, enabling us to develop and hone the practices that are central to our programs and retreats.

A Unique Approach to Life’s Renovation

Building on the rich legacy of the old EVRYMAN, we are now focusing on honing and expanding our impact, helping more men and organizations construct meaningful, fulfilling lives.

Success, more than ever, depends on having the emotional and relational skills that most of us have never seen or been taught. More men are using our trainings to get what they previously never had to succeed in today’s business environments. Unlike many women, most of us did not have role models or training to use our emotions to connect and lead authentically. When given the missing tools, skills, and a place to practice, men excel.
