Robert Bly reads poems of Antonio Machado and himself, meditating on his father and the task of originality in art, including Machado’s immortal line, “You say nothing is created new? Don’t worry about it, with the mud of the earth, make a cup from which your brother can drink.”

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.
