7:30 – 9:00 am
In these culturally chaotic times, when so many male role models are falling from grace and revealing the dark underside of masculinity, where do we turn for clarity, discernment and proper action? How do we find a balancing point?
One resource is the work of Fr. Richard Rohr, a globally recognized ecumenical teacher who leads men’s rites-of-passage retreats and addresses many aspects of masculine spirituality. He sees pain as a primary doorway through which we can pass to reach our best and authentic selves. His On the Threshold of Transformation supports men in learning how to transform their pain so they don’t harmfully pass it on.
Join us for a series of informative gatherings designed to support men in exploring themes of healthy masculinity as expressed by this contemporary wisdom teacher. Together we will share, reflect and write as we examine themes from the daily meditation book, including the “Male in Culture and Society: God, Power & Shame”; the “Paradox of Transformation: Change, Suffering and Freedom”; and “Male Archetypes and the Integrated Man: King, Magician and Lover.” Each offers a backdrop for group discussions, private reflections and further application in our lives following the workshop.
COST: Series: $55.00, includes a copy of On the Threshold of Transformation: Daily Meditations for Men by Richard Rohr.
Single session: $20.00
