Men of Tears

Real men don’t cry … or do they? Lee Glickstein and Pete van Dyk founded a group dedicated to promoting crying as a therapeutic practice:

A few moments before 4 p.m. on a recent Wednesday, nine men ages 25 to 67, filed into a small, bare office in San Anselmo, arranged their chairs in a circle, sat down and prepared to cry.

Few knew each other. Some hadn’t cried since they were young boys and wanted to learn how to cry again. A few cried often, and were thrilled to have found a safe space to do so.

These were the Men of Tears.

Wait till you find out the name of Glickstein’s organization (it’s WaterWorkers): Link (Photo: Carlos Avila Gonzalez / San Francisco Chronicle)
