Colorado Fall Men's Retreat:
Developing and Maintaining a Healthy Masculine Self
October 16 - 18, 2020
Estes Park, Colorado
The fall season is a potent time to dive deep within ourselves to illuminate how we see ourselves and present ourselves in the world. The waning days of brightness lend for introspection, a time to gather the harvests of the recent seasons, reflect upon choices, and begin to welcome in the coming darkness. This weekend together is a perfect way to practice being witness to our process in the midst of autumn.
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. Sign up now to join us for a weekend full of blessing, wonder and renewal.
Young men Eighteen and Older and Elders are Encouraged to Attend: These men offer invaluable insights that are a critical source of guidance and balance during the gathering.
