Earthwork Farm ~ near Lake City, MI

Aligning with the Archetypes

~ Connect To A Community of Supportive Men
~ Gain Perspective And Clarity On Your Current Challenges
~ Rest, Relax And Resource Yourself To Return Home Ready For The Next Steps Ahead

The long days of summer in nature provide a profound time and place for a man to look deep into his heart and reflect on his life journey with the support of other men.

This 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.

Throughout the retreat there will be offerings by the facilitators and other men – activities to challenge our personal levels of adaptability and resilience, times to enhance our creativity, opportunities to examine where our lives are heading and begin to hold ourselves and each other accountable for creating the futures we want.

Come join us in this time away 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 families, workplaces, and communities.   

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.
