This mens weekend is an opportunity for you to spend time with a group of men of all ages. Its a chance to be yourself and speak freely amongst men and explore what it is to be a man in Ireland in 2017. We will be helped by movement, poetry, sweat-lodge, conversation and ritual to dive deeply and honestly into these themes in the company and support of men and in a place of great natural beauty of Glenmalure valley in the Irish countryside. We will have indoor sessions in the beautiful An Sanctoir retreat centre and sessions around an open fire and on the land. All men of all ages are welcome.
