Join us February 24-26, 2017 for this weekend retreat to nourish your body, mind, heart, and soul. Through council circles, music, movement, and story we will explore and affirm our deepest truths as men. We will emerge with blessings to move forward into our lives with clarity of purpose, passion, and power to better serve our own souls, our families and our communities.
The winter season is a potent time to dive deep within our inner terrain. Winter’s darkness calls forth both a time for renewal and self-nourishment, as well as a time of alignment with our inner desires and visions. Winter is both a time to learn how to rest in ourselves, as well as a time to actively examine the seeds within that are longing to sprout, come spring. This is the time for deep personal soul work.
As the light begins to enter in again we must be active in our germination process. What is it that we most want to sprout in our lives? What can we say yes to? How do we maintain a healthy balance between being with what is and actively stepping towards our deepest desires, all while being open to all that we have yet to even dream of?
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.
