Mens Retreat: Making action change in your life

Men today are facing a world that challenges notions of identity and what it means to be a man. In order to and harmony in our life and society, we need to re ect on who we are within the world, strive towards accepting the various aspects of our own identity, while also building a more inclusive society. We must face the internal con icts that tear us apart and block us from emotional intimacy, and a better footing in these challenging times as we de ne for ourselves who we want to be, and reawaken our wholeness after trauma.

This workshop explores various aspects of our experience and how it has impacted us in our work, in our relationships with others, and ourselves.

Potential topics to be explored will trauma, loss, addictions, recovery, culture, race, sexual orientation, gender, identity, disabilities, spiritual beliefs, ageism, inclusivity, and diversity.

Using action methods inspired by the latest healing knowledge, we invite you to join us in this mens group. Together, we will increase the strengths within ourselves, transform our defenses, and cultivate post-traumatic growth through experiential therapy, psychodrama, and the creative arts.

In examining the roles within ourselves, we can discern which ones contribute to us being the best men we can be, while also adding new roles to expand beyond the limits of our current selves. This workshop is experiential in nature, providing anyone who self- identifes as male with a safe place for personal work..

Residential Retreat Price: $1000- Early Registration Available

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
