Celebrating Brotherhood – IoM #7 – Online
Due to more lockdowns in Melbourne, this IoM #7 Celebrating Brotherhood will now be online.
We are excited to be delivering our first live web-based program, bringing the Island of Men experience to your home (or wherever you may be).
We’ve got a great day of ceremony, talks and workshops lined up to launch Island of Men 7 – Celebrating Brotherhood!
This event gives us the opportunity to connect and share with each other in a meaningful way… something we’re all needing right now in the context of isolation and solitude.
We’ve designed the online program so everyone will not only have the opportunity to be inspired by talks and workshops but also have the opportunity to connect with others, to listen and to be heard. For many that attend, sharing is a big part of what Island of Men is about – and of course, sharing is always optional.
Whether you’ve already attended IOM workshops before or this is your first courageous step in exploring this brotherhood, IOM is a great step forward on your path to connecting with yourself and others.
Join us for a day of connection, sharing, education and brotherhood!

About The Event
IOM is a unique experience that provides something different for each individual.
For some men, it is a welcome reprieve from the pressures of life, a lifting of the weight of expectation that has been placed on them by work, family and society.
For others, it is a place to realise and release limiting stories, unhealthy relationships & behaviours that no longer serve.
And for the majority of the IOM attendees, it is just a place to feel at home with other blokes who want to learn, grow and be happy.
This is a day built on radical self-reliance, a commitment to owning our own stuff and taking steps to create positive changes where necessary. It’s also a day of a complete community, a knowing that life can be so much better when we are there for one another.
IOM will be host to an array of talented facilitators running workshops throughout the day, focus on mission, communication, movement, fatherhood, purpose, expression, appreciation, self-love, inner child work… and more.
The workshops will be delivered by talented facilitators.
The IOM experience can be somewhat difficult to describe, so rather than trying to hammer a point home, have a read of what past attendees have said about their Island experience.
“What a day! A fantastic experience to be surrounded by so many amazing hu-men. The workshops were great, the love felt by all, the power of the Sacred Heart circle. This is a much-needed facility in a time where I, as a man, realise it’s on me to create the change I want for myself and my surroundings. And to spread that change to all men around me. A powerful tool to claim back our masculinity.”
“What an amazing day. Very full and heavy heart by the end, in a very good way!”
“Truly powerful and inspirational work behind the guys that brought this beautiful space together. What an Honour it was to be apart of this event !! Absolute must for Men – Please do more.”
“A great day organised by great people, I went in hungover and came out inspired!”
