Tasting Life: Men and Living in the Now

Apr 24 - 26, 2015 Begins this weekend
with Matt Englar-Carlson & Mark Stevens

Men’s lives are often driven by a desire and expectation to climb the ladder of success. This type of training encourages men to look through a future-oriented lens, and subsequently create an inner sense of rushing through life and missing opportunities for experiencing the present moment more fully. The process and skills of slowing down and tasting life more fully are often desires that many men crave, yet are uncertain how to attain. This workshop explores what it means to be a fully present with ourselves and with others.


Man Alive: Recapturing Our Passion and Energy

Jul 26 - 31, 2015 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.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
