Men Beyond 50
Midlife and beyond can be the most fun a man has ever had, the time to find out who you really are, and live it. But it’s also a time of huge change, when it’s easy for a man to feel lost, with nowhere to turn to.
This website offers a wide range of information and help for men from their mid-forties into their seventies and beyond. Some of it may be helpful for women too.
The Resources section includes lots of briefings and blogs in three main sections: The Physical Journey, The Emotional & Spiritual Journey, and The Practical Journey.
Some of this content is excerpts from the book Out of the Woods: A Guide to Life for Men Beyond 50, by Alan Heeks, co-founder of the MB50 project. For more about this book and others, see the Books section.
This website is intended as a shared resource: please send us your guest blogs, events and more: just Contact us.
We issue an occasional e-newsletter on topics of interest for men of all ages. To join the email list for this: just Subscribe.
