2019 Men’s Retreat -- Awakening the Sacred Masculine

March 22-24

“It is no secret that men are in trouble today. From war to ecological collapse, most of the world’s critical problems stem from a distorted masculinity out of control. Yet our culture rewards the very dysfunctions responsible for those problems.”

Author Matthew Fox, sees our crucial task as men is to open our minds to a deeper understanding of the healthy masculine than we receive from our media, culture, and religions. To awaken what Fox calls “the sacred masculine,” he unearths ten metaphors, or archetypes, to inspire men to pursue their higher calling to reinvent the world.  

We will explore the hidden aspects of healthy masculine nature and awaken our sacred masculinity which is multidimensional and often masked for our own awareness.  We will use as our primary discussion guide the preface to Matthew Fox’s book The Hidden Spirituality of Men: Ten Metaphors to Awaken the Sacred Masculine (provided in advance).  

In preparation for our time together please read the preface and consider the questions:

  • What messages have reinforced/informed your understanding of masculinity?
  • Where did these messages come from?
  • In what ways have you “hidden” your spiritual life?


  • What would it look like to come out and live your full spiritual nature?
