renewal weekends


We all are facing transitions: school, jobs, health, relationships, retirement, aging, death.  How we face them is often dependent on our past history, our current state of mind, and our concerns about the future in a SAFE and SUPPORTIVE place, we may begin to unpack these issues, support each other, and discover new insights about our journeys. 


The Men's Fellowship Renewals offer a safe place in which we, as brothers, can be open to the issues that challenge us to the core of who we are and help us to begin the process of unpacking them. In small supportive kinship group setting, we will share confidentially and non-judgmentally manner.  We welcome our sometimes raw emotions and self-aware laughter at our foibles. In addition, there will be time for music and singing, hot tub and hiking, drumming and ritual, conversation and renewing friendships, and meditation and quiet time. 


The $175 fee includes meals and lodging.  It is our policy that no man will be denied for financial reason; scholarships are available.  An informal Thursday evening check-in is possible if you want to start the weekend early and to adjust to the

altitude and beauty of the area. 


For more information on applying for scholarship  or other questions, please contact Mike Dorfi (619-466-5962) or John Holl (619-546-6525)
