Men’s Retreat: Recovering the Vital Masculine
October 29 - November 1
The spiritual journey of a man has a long history in both Eastern and Western cultures. But in western culture there has been an almost complete break in the spiritual development of the masculine. As a result men experience profound alienation from our bodies, our communities, and our true selves. It leaves us not knowing how to be in this world. How to be fathers, how to be friends, how to be lovers, how to be brothers etc. How do we evolve when most of us never received support as young boys? Fortunately, the lineage of the vital male does not just disappear. It still lives on in our consciousness and is accessible when in the company of other men.In this retreat men can drop in, relate without competition, build trust and establish lasting bonds. We will focus on issues and challenges for the masculine involving sexual energy, the body and the male psyche. Discover how the spiritual journey for men can be mutually supportive and affirmative. We explore the ways that men can harness, sustain and preserve their essential energy. Through somatic awareness, inter-dialogue, dream work, meditation and yoga, this event offers a unique opportunity for men to practice together and share together in a spirit of mutual support.
