Welcome to Menergy 2021/22 – 3 Day Men’s Wilderness Retreat.
We hope that you and your families are well, and are managing to find your way through the challenging times that we find ourselves in. We’ve heard the call of so many men who are in need of space; to deepen into what it means to be a man in these times, to explore how we can heal and grow and be of service to our families and communities; and to connect with other men on this journey.
We are here for you!
Our much-awaited Menergy gathering will now be in May 2022. Due to the continuing lockdown in Victoria, we have had to shift the date to allow us all to gather.
Being a modern man has its challenges.
It is expected that Men will take on the roles of providers, protectors, and leaders. At the same time, we are also expected to practise emotional openness, vulnerability and sensitivity. How does a modern man strike this delicate balance in his mission, community, and relationships?
That’s why Menergy was created. It serves as a place for men to come together, explore the challenges of modern life, and map out a path to honour the changing times – while embracing the essence of who we are as men.
Open your mind with three days of powerful and transformative workshops covering masculinity, relationships, spirituality, sexuality, empowerment, self-development and more.
During the duration of the retreat, you will be part of a small group facilitated by an experienced group leader. This facilitates deep conversations and meaningful connections.
Experience the sharing circle where you will be given the space to speak your truth without interruption or judgment. This allows for deeper connection and healing, and your intentions are able to take root and grow.
The gathering is set in the beautiful country of Licola on the banks of the Macalister River (Wirnwirndook’yeerun) in Gippsland. You have the freedom to play in the sun, enjoy the scenery, and swim in the river.
Menergy, Island Of Men, Common Ground and Victorian Men’s Wellbeing welcome all men.
