towards a mature masculinity
Thursday, June 20 - Sunday 23, 2019
In the face of increasing aggression and violent male abuse, where men are both perpetrators and victims ("toxic masculinity"), we want to set a constructive counterpoint.
Rooted in the tradition of Richard Rohr's spiritual men's work we want to engage in a healing masculinity. Instead of distancing, separation and aggression, we strive for re-connection and reconciliation.
Our intent is to send a powerful signal of mature masculinity into the world. Experienced men from our international movement of initiated men (Illuman (US), the male Journey (UK), the male Journey (IRL), chlapi (CZ), Mannsein (AUT), Männerpfade) will guide you through these days and encourage you to deepen your understanding of healthy masculinity so crucially needed in contemporary societies. Rituals, teachings, nature exercises and sharing in the way of Council will promote your experience.
EuroSoul 2019 will take place in Oberwildflecken, a low mountain range area in Northern Bavaria. . We invite all interested and/or initiated men, regardless of age, status, sexual orientation or religious affiliation.
This international gathering will be held in English. No official translation is offered.
