This is your personal invitation to retreat from the world of obligations and gather with other men, around the fire, by the stream, upon the hill, near the valley, to rediscover and remember who you are and why you are alive right now: not to abandon anything, but to re-energize, deepen, and clarify. 

We are calling people who identify as men together again, to create a space for you to explore deep inside of those places in you where you will find your gold and overcome the barriers to living your fullest expression of yourself and your masculinity. 

In a spirit of openness, curiosity, inquiry and fellowship we will sit with other men, planted firmly on the ground, at the feet of soul and nature to hear what wants to be said, to say what needs to be heard. This is a time and place for befriending our truest call, the call wrapped in the beckoning branches of wild nature, the call beseeching us both from within and without. If this call is yours to respond to, we hope you will join us. 




"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."

   -John Muir
