Robert Bly tells the Norwegian folktale “The Best Wish,” a story of three brothers who are granted three wishes. The two elders wish that every time they put their hands in their pockets they might pull out a piece of money. But the youngest wishes something better still: that every woman he saw might fall in love with him… The tale is followed by a discussion of its meaning with Bly and MMC attendees.

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.
