JULY 12 & 13, 2024
In the potent and generative arena of sacred brotherhood, we will access, dance, and re-member four archetypal gateways to masculine wisdom:
Magician, Lover, Warrior, and Sovereign.
Together, we will focus on how each of these archetypes lives in us and offers us unique access into our thinking, feeling, doing, and being.
Men have always gathered in community to recover forgotten potentials and to awaken parts hidden in shadow. Our brotherhood and friendships will help us create a formidable field of interbeing as we dive deeply into our healthy roots and connections and the true soul of the masculine.
Through creative processes, we will access our capacities to be awake, accountable, and show up in the brilliance of our vulnerability. Our quest is to find the clarity, heart, courage and commitment to stand up in our wild sacred masculine selves and let our unique genius shine. Together we will celebrate what it is to be whole and authentic men in these times.
Please join us. Men 16 years & older are welcome.
