Please join us over Labor Day weekend to spend a weekend among men who want to meet you as you are. Just as you are. Now.
The world stands over us with an agenda for what a man should be — what he should look like, the way he should express himself and how he should feel. At this summer’s gathering, we invite you to come just as you are. We want to meet you with radical acceptance. We don’t need you to be fixed or improved in order to contribute to our gathering together. Come with whatever it is that you are judging yourself about, whatever you fear is broken or needs to be kept in the shadows.
This Labor Day weekend, we will start with the tools you use to honor your Self and help you grow them. We will learn those tools from you and try them on for ourselves. We will loosen the web of lies that dictate who a man should be, and we will watch as we let it fall away. We will practice awakening to the now-ness of life with all of its phenomena – imagined good and imagined bad – in community, no longer alone. No longer in judgment. We will lay down the burden of “self-improvement” and reaching for our personal goals, if only just for a weekend.
A California Men’s Gathering is a safe space where men can open up with each other, where we can bond without fear, and we can support and nurture each other through caring and honest presence.
Our theme is, “Come as You Are.” Being true to yourself is the ultimate act of love that you can contribute to the healing of the planet. Celebrating what makes you different is your superpower. We would love to see you there with your current ritual for healing, no matter the state of its evolution. We will plant seeds of intention surrounded by the fertile soil of the Napa Valley, as we convene for an annual experience of connection. Some of us will work to create beautiful objects, others will entertain and amuse us, others will make sure that our bodies are well-fed and rested, and others will urge us to find the corners within that we have yet to send love to. Each man brings his unique remedy for the good of the community.
