Gathering for men in Snowdonia this May

Mandalora the Leeds-based ‘men’s work’ organisation is hosting “a ritual gathering for men” in Snowdonia.

The event called “sex, love and loss – breaking the silence, opening our hearts”  takes place in May. The organisers say:

“We invite you to join us in the foothills of Snowdonia as we explore and celebrate our lusts, our desires & our loves, as well as acknowledging our losses, of love, of innocence and naivety, of potency & youth.

“Male sexuality is a notoriously hot potato. Some say it is at least partly responsible for many of the ills of the world. But it is also a supremely generative, creative, life giving force. How is our relationship to our sexuality? Is it a source of love, of excitement, of vitality? Or perhaps one of shame, of frustration, or even addiction?

“In the mountains, in a clearing in the beautiful oak woods, this event offers the chance to engage with these questions, supported by a community of men, working with a variety of tools including ritual, story, group-work and time alone in nature. Perhaps a chance to re-connect with what David Whyte describes as ‘…the old wild place, beyond all shame…’ We hope you can join us there.”

The event funs from 17th – 20th May 2012 and costs £250 to £300 we places limited to 14 participants.
