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.
To help you begin to define your own sense of masculinity during the retreat you will learn to:
Identify and speak your truth
Engage healthfully with your challenges
Normalize your experience as a man
Form an action plan for the next steps ahead
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. This weekend together is a perfect way to practice being witness to our process in the midst of spring
The spring season is a potent time to dive deep within ourselves to illuminate how we see ourselves and present ourselves in the world. The growing days of brightness lend for a desire to expand beyond old patterns that have kept us small, disconnected, and distant from ourselves and others. This springtime energy invites us to find what it is we are saying yes to in our lives – a new way of engaging with our partners or children, creative ways for meeting challenges, new ideas for work, and so on.
Come join us 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, movement, 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.
This intergenerational circle is welcome of all men. We each bring valuable insights that are a critical source of guidance and balance during the gathering.
