The Role of Money in Our Lives: A Conversation Among Men

Apr 25 - 27 Begins in 6 days
with Matt Englar-Carlson & Mark Stevens

Often, men are driven by the pursuit of money and measure their self-worth by money made and spent. Money affects almost all facets of a man’s life. Fears of not being a good enough breadwinner are part of a man’s subjective experience. The inner lives of men and their relationship to money are often unexamined and play out in some inauthentic ways.


Man Alive: Recapturing Our Passion and Energy

Jul 27 - Aug 01 Begins in 3 months
with Mark Stevens & Fredric Rabinowitz

Throughout their lives, men are encouraged to play by the “rules of masculinity.” These rules about what is acceptable for men often involve inhibiting the spontaneous, creative, vulnerable, authentic, and care-free aspects of the self. This five-day experience is intended to help men re-discover the pure joy of feeling alive. As a group, we will explore what it means to be a fully present and authentic man. By sharing our stories of challenges, relationships, hardships, dreams, and desires, we will build a community of trust, permission, and healing.
