Michael Meade tells the African story “The Lizard in the Fire” from the Housa people. Through indelible ritual images the story explores the archetypal dilemma of loyalty to parents vs. loyalty to one’s spouse. Followed by a deep and thought-provoking discussion of how the story can help reveal a man’s life.

Founded by Robert Bly in 1984, the Minnesota Men’s Conference celebrates the telling of old stories, the gifts of poetry and music, and opening our hearts to grief, wildness, and joy. We all have a yearning for lives of richness and meaning; this five-day conference is a unique opportunity to enrich ourselves in a community of other men.
