The Seeds We Sow

As the ice and snow melt in the mountains, delicate beauty starts to blossom. Wildflowers sprout, creeks start to run, and birdsong rings out through the forest. The world is starting to wake up and come back to life. The Spring is the time for new beginnings, new connections, and new growth.

During this retreat we will focus on revitalization. You’ll have space to shake off the stiffness of winter and take stock of your life. Then, you’ll be asked to create art from the natural world that symbolizes a new direction of growth. You’ll take this art piece back with you as a reminder of your commitment to yourself and your personal development.

This retreat will focus heavily on the group connections and nature-based ritual rather than on strength and endurance. There will also be time for silent walks, journaling, and introspection. It’s great for someone new to camping or who is looking to develop a more meaningful and intentional relationship with the natural world.

Integration

The most important part of any retreat is integration – taking all that you’ve learned and experienced and making it real. This means making commitments to yourself and the other Men on the retreat. You’ll have community support to make changes in your life, have difficult conversations, or quit a bad habit. At Men’s Therapy Online we believe that it’s long-term community support that helps men grow. The retreat experience can kick start a change but it takes hard, consistent work to cement it.

After the retreat you’ll be invited to a touchdown meeting two days later, on July 23rd and another integration call 2 weeks later on August 6th. These calls are a place to reconnect with the other participants and facilitators as well as update us on the progress that you’ve made. Some retreat participants then go on to join one of our Men’s Groups to continue the cadence of support and accountability.
