For men, it can be challenging to find the time and space to renew ourselves, and to find a supportive company of other men who are willing to live the important questions of what it means to be alive and in service to the world while maintaining a healthy and generative lifestyle.
In this weekend workshop we will explore the wild beauty of Big Sur with a spacious Saturday on the trails, evenings of storytelling and community building through the practice of council, and ample time to connect with each other and all that Esalen has to offer. The Way of Council, as developed by the Ojai Foundation, is a blend of listening and communication practices that empower and support community building, trust, healing, and a sense of common purpose. Our hiking distance will range from 4-7 miles, and while no previous hiking experience is required, expect some vigorous activity.
More information, including an equipment list and a waiver will be sent upon registration.
