Journeying in the Second Half of Life
Indiana-Michigan M.A.L.E.s invites you to retreat, taking time away to focus on the questions that come as we find ourselves looking over the top of the hill we’ve been climbing and begin to see down into the valley ahead of us …
Teaching tales. Our own stories. Experience in nature. Join us as we weave these together to illuminate ways of creating a legacy that gives meaning to our lives and makes a difference in the lives of future generations
Come explore how you can be generative so that your life matters.

Facilitated by Fr. Jim Clarke
During this retreat weekend for men, using story and ritual, Jim Clarke will explore the different levels of relationship with the Feminine in our lives as men. This includes but is not limited to the Mother wound, the mother complex, the anima, the role of sister, woman as friend, and woman as life partner. A healthy warrior accesses the discipline of respectful boundaries and right relationships on the correct level. Otherwise pain and chaos make havoc with the feminine in general and individual women in particular.
