The call is for men to gather to embrace the spirit of summer - the season of fullness, the time of expansion and action, the time of dropping deeply into our souls for clarity in the safety of a community of men who can help us take active steps toward moving forward on our life path.
The summer season is a potent time to dive deep within ourselves to illuminate how we see ourselves and present ourselves in the world. The brightness and long days of summer lends toward a time of doing and busyness, spending our days enacting our visions and cultivating sustainability for life. This weekend together is a perfect way to practice being witness to our process in the midst of action.
- How do we see ourselves?
- How do we present ourselves to our families? The world?
- What patterns prevail in our lives that hold us back from living a vibrant life?
- What parts of ourselves have we been unwilling to name and examine?
- What risks are we willing to take so we can begin to live the life we were meant to live?
- How do we need to nurture ourselves in the midst of our busy lives so we can continue to show up fully for ourselves, our families and our communities?
This year's annual men's retreat is a way to work with all that is going on with our families, communities and the world by first working on ourselves, and doing so in the fellowship of other men hungry for authentic connection and seeking the next active steps in their lives. This time together creates both a level of adaptability and resilience, a time of creativity and possibility that matches up personal fate with the world destiny.
Come join us in this practical dreamtime to examine exactly what is, begin to uncover your personal visions, and develop resources to connect your personal visions with the needs and demands of our daily lives. Come step into authentic action.
Come be inspired by each other, be open to listening, healing, connection, and laughter. Through storytelling, poetry, music, ritual, dance, metaphorical process and council we will learn how to better care for ourselves so that we can inspire our circles with clear passion from an open heart. Sign up now to join us for a weekend full of blessing, wonder and renewal.
