A Retreat for Younger and Older Men

MENDOCINO, CA  -  AUGUST 14-19  

Join us on this path of discovery with a diverse faculty who will present ideas and elements of initiation from tribal traditions, spiritual practices and psychological perspectives. Through stories, poems and the compelling speech of the soul; through chanting and meditation; through the suddenness of ideas and the surprise of ritual; we will approach the borders of our knowing and seek to touch the edge of what our souls came to live and to learn. This event will benefit those involved in mentoring and community building, teaching and counseling, environmental activism and social justice.

"Each spiritual and traditional practice can lead to the center where the divine waits to be revealed again. Yet, the venerable traditions can only be helpful up to a point. Each person must immerse in the river of change and go against mainstream ideas and common expectations.

PORT ORCHARD, WA - SEPTEMBER 13-16

Join mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade for this intensive four-day retreat. Regardless of age or status, each person carries an innate connection to the accumulated treasure of the human soul. This inner inheritance includes surprising capacities for creation, but also instincts for survival and the energy needed for genuine transformation. In Greek myth the clue to finding a meaningful path was known as mitos, the holy thread and life-line of the soul.

Each realignment with our innate way of seeing and being becomes a renewal of the eternal youth and wise old sage dwelling at the heart’s center.  As long as we trust the inner gradient we keep finding the soul’s path and emerge from life’s struggles with greater self-awareness and gifts to give. Only then can we deliver to a world ruled by scarcity and fear, the hidden abundance of the soul.


“To be alive at this time means to be caught in the great unraveling that strands us near all the loose threads of creation; but it also means to be close to the revelation of the new design and the next paradigm.  In facing up to the enormous problems of the world and accepting the troubles that knock on our doors, we can better learn what hidden resources, deep resolves, and surprising designs we have hidden within us.”
- Michael Meade, "Why the World Doesn't End"
