Tasting Life: Men and Living in the Now

Apr 24 - 26 Begins in 1 month
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.
