$350.00 Registration covers camp meals and lodging.

Join Us for a Weekend Retreat for Men with Miguel Rivera, Ben Dennis, Walton Stanley and Oscar Perez and others on January 27, 28 and 29, 2017 as we invoke deep earth powers: through song, myth and fellowship.

Fri. Sat., Sun., January 27-29, 2017
Fri eve. 6 p.m. until Sun. 3 p.m.

For thousands of years, during the short days and long nights of the boreal winter, men have left the comforts of the village to gather in woodland lodges and share their ancient stories, their poetry, laughter, music, rituals, deep feeling and the resonant silence of the whitened woods. Some wild old fire rekindles in the belly.

In Minnesota’s deepest winter weekend men will offer direct responses to questions such as “How do men live with soul and purpose?” “What is a man’s role in chaotic times such as these?” “What gifts do men bring back from the wild?” Answers may come through a folk story, through a poem, through a ritual, or through heart-to- heart conversations with other men.

This weekend retreat will be a time for men to be heard, to seek inspiration, to reclaim and revivify the mythic ground they stand upon.
