Being a man in today’s society can be an isolating experience. There are high expectations for men to be self-reliant and invulnerable. But no man is an island, and all men need to develop real relationships with other men through sharing and being vulnerable. There is a cultural pressure for men to be tough, non-emotional and always strong, but the reality is that men are emotional beings, with complexities and fragilities. We might only be able to address these in the loving, compassionate support of our fellow men, our brothers.

Retreats for men are spaces to come together for support in investigating what it mean to be a man in today’s society. It is a rare and precious opportunity to be vulnerable with other men as we sensitively explore the pressures—and the joys—of work, family, relationships, and all aspects of life.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara
