Men's Rites of Passage

MROP - August 2020

Registration Closed
Call: (408) 634-5515

 

Online Application for: Initiates, Staff Members, Initiator Program and RIM - Returning Initiated Men

The application below is open to all men. There will be room for approximately 60 men on this retreat. After observing previous participants, we have decided that acceptance will be based on perceived readiness for initiation. While images and ritual are used from other religious traditions, we do not apologize for our Judeo-Christian heritage. However, this is not just another Catholic/Christian men’s retreat.

While it is a good if you approach this experience as a lone seeker. We also recommend that you have a men's community that you are sent from and return to that has an core value for male spirituality.

Fathers and sons are normally not initiated together, nor is this a buddy experience. However if do come with friends expect to be assigned to a group where you will be anonymous and start from zero together with your group. You will actually find this to be an advantage. This is one of the threshold to the "beginners mind."

YOU MAY NOT MAKE THIS INITIATION RITE MORE THAN ONCE.
