From Brokenness to Wholeness
Men's Fall Retreat
Crescent Moon Lodge
in Rattan, Ok.
The Conscious Masculine Retreat is a safe and nurturing environment for men to share their hopes, dreams, and pain in the company of other men; to experience deep relaxation, healing and rest. The sacred land of the retreat center naturally contains elements of both grief and joy and plays a important role in the journey to wholeness.
When men earnestly engage in this process they receive years worth of mental and emotional growth in the short span of a weekend ! Deep friendships and lasting memories are serendipitous by-products.
Ring them bells that still can ring,
forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack, a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
- Leonard Cohen
Set in the beautiful sacred lands of the Choctaw Native Americans and the Kiamichi Wilderness in SE Oklahoma, a weekend retreat for men to go on a guided journey of self discovery. Utilizing the power of myth, poetry and story telling, as a way of healing mind and body, and re-imagine what it means to be a man in the 21st Century.
"I am not I
I am this one
Walking beside me, who sometimes
I manage to see
And other times I forget
Who remains calm, when I speak
Who forgives sweetly, when I hate
Who can walk where I cannot go
Who will remain standing, when I die.
I am not I, I am this one."
- Juan Ramon Jimenez
