BENEVOLENT BROTHERHOOD

Men’s Quest

JULY 9 & 10, 2021 

July 9th & 10th, 2021

Friday 6–9pm / Saturday 9:30am–9:30pm
Concurrent with Divine Siblinghood and Shakti Sisterhood

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.

Juan Guerrero was born in Monterey, Mexico, and raised between Mexico and Houston TX. In 2016 he followed a call for something more and hit the road, his travels led him to settle in Colorado. Since early 2016 he has been deeply immersed in Golden Bridge programs and trainings through which we discovered his dance and his medicine.

Juan’s youth exposed him to an unjust education system, gang violence, and drugs. His coming of age has been a renaissance in which he has discovered himself to be a mentor, a singer-songwriter, an artisan, an activist, and a proud business owner. Juan is a skilled carpenter, mason, welder, landscaper, and handyman. He is passionate about combining his hard and soft skills to create healthy environments for young men questing for the sacred masculine. He is integrating men’s work from many lineages. Juan led his first men’s circle in Rio de Janeiro through Golden Bridge. He is married to a wonderful woman and is honored to be a loved and trusted leader in his community.
