Men’s Retreat: Action Change Group for Post-Traumatic Growth

Temenos Community Retreat House

Men today are facing a world that challenges notions of identity and what it means to be a ‘man’. In order to find harmony in our life and society, we need to reflect on who we are within the world, strive towards accepting the various aspects of our own identity, while also building a more inclusive society. We must face the internal conflicts that tear us apart and block us from emotional intimacy, find a better footing in these challenging times as we define for ourselves who we want to be, and reawaken our wholeness after trauma.

This workshop explores various aspects of our experience and how it has impacted us in our work, in our relationships with others, and ourselves.

Potential topics to be explored will trauma, loss, addictions, recovery, culture, race, sexual orientation, gender, identity, disabilities, spiritual beliefs, ageism, inclusivity, and diversity.

Using action methods inspired by the latest healing knowledge, we invite you to join us in this men’s group. Together, we will increase the strengths within ourselves, transform our defenses, and cultivate post-traumatic growth through experiential therapy, psychodrama, and the creative arts.

In examining the roles within ourselves, we can discern which ones contribute to us being the best men we can be, while also adding new roles to expand beyond the limits of our current selves. This workshop is experiential in nature, providing anyone who self-identifies as male with a safe place for personal work..
