Island of Men - Reconnections
Announcing IoM #15 - RECONNECTIONS
VENUE: Herring Island, Richmond
On Sun Dec 3rd, Island of Men is going to explore what it means to Reconnect. Reconnect to yourself, Reconnect to the community and Reconnect to nature. This will be a day dedicated to supporting you on your journey as a man, in a beautiful natural setting among a community of men who believe in supporting each other and growing as one, big, family.
We are going to bring together a number of expert facilitators and quality hosted content to explore tools and techniques for improving our sense of connection to our families, friendship groups and communities.
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.
IoM is open to all men of cultural and ethical backgrounds. It is open to all men that identify as male, of all sexual orientations. IoM is focused on community and growth and is not associated with any religious group.
Island of Men events are based on agreements. It is a day of connection and growth, agreements provide a safe foundation to support this intention.
- Everyone that identifies as male is welcome
- Participate as much or as little as is right for you
- Confidentiality - anything discussed remains confidential
- We are not here to persuade others (especially in areas of religion or politics)
What to Expect
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 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, focussed 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 a 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 a 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!"
Grab yourself a ticket - and if you want to do something nice for a man, friend or family member, if you want to strengthen a bond you have with a best mate, or a brother, bring them along. You'll both be thankful for it.
