You are invited to the Regathering of Initiated Men at the Men’s Rites of Passage: Sat./Sun. Sept 16 and 17.
Please RSVP if you are attending this weekend event.

The Returning Initiated Men’s program includes:

  • A two-day program, led by Elders on the “The Five Essential Truths of Initiation and your own spiritual journey,” including time in nature where so many of us made our rites as well as a teaching.
  • Stay overnight – bring sleeping equipment and towels, etc..
  • Celebrate the initiation rites with the men on both Saturday evening and Sunday.
  • Help setup the banquet meal for the men on the Rites
  • We look forward to seeing you there and adding your energy to the M.R.O.P. team in helping welcome these new men into the greater community of Richard Rohr's Men As Learners and Elders (M.A.L.E.s), now Illuman.
