We will be gathering together a group of men who are eager to journey together into the wilds of Jersey’s incredible landscapes and into the wilds of their inner life for personal exploration and transformation.

The event takes place for the first on the island of Jersey in the stunning and historic venue of L’Etacquerel Fort.

As we come out the other side of a global pandemic, and in a time of constant changes and uncertainaty we are providing a space where men can take some rare and precious tiome to think more deeply about the meaning and purpose of their lives, and their unique calling in this world – to move into the next season with renewed strength, energy, courage.

 

There will be times of physical activity such as coasteering and hiking. As well as venturing out into the landscape, there will be thought-provoking curated sessions exploring Jungian archetypes, rituals of transformation and rites of passage, and time for discussion and sharing in small groups
