Amidst ever-louder weeping for Men to again lead the powerful and embodied lives we are called towards, we are gathering to honor each other, our ancestors, and the work which brings meaning to our hands and fulfillment to our hearts.

Combining traditional men’s work, together with embodiment & restoration work, the focus of the gathering is to uncover and celebrate what our genuine masculine nature is. We will do this through Story, Somatic Practices, Amazing Food, Shared Prayer and using our senses to help shape ourselves & the land who sustains us.

The facilitators for the gathering are:

~Robert Usher offers an exploration of heart-awakening stories, aided by the rhythm of the ngoni.

~Pieter Van Winkle is a soul-centric facilitator and men’s leader living in Western Colorado. He is passionate about serving men undergoing major life transitions. In his private client practice he combines gestalt-based “parts” work, somatic awareness practice and land-based assignments to guide individuals with clarity and compassion as they move more fully into the ”one life they can call their own.” In groups, Pieter deploys deep curiosity and embodiment practice to facilitate encounters with shadow, sensation, flow, emotion and purpose. He is also a homesteader, pilot, naturalist and dog owner. See

~David Grefrath facilitates groups and individuals in remembering connection to sacred source through prayer & land work. He has a history of group organizing, in particular with an emphasis on emotional transformation through restoration work and community farming. He has lived in Mendocino County since 2014.
