YOUR ONE WILD and PRECIOUS LIFE: A Weekend Retreat for Men in Nature: Centering, Gathering, Connecting, Releasing, Serving
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?– from a poem by Mary Oliver
These Five Touchstones of ILLUMAN mark the path upon which we journey together as men. Creation, that ongoing act of God’s love holds the radiance and splendor that illuminates our way. The natural world is filled with forms of life who are our companions for the journey. The Sacred Scripture written in each species of life on this the garden planet of our solar system touches the Sacred Scripture of our lives as we claim our birthright as earth men. With time to be still, reflect, pay attention to the astonishing story of creation and to one another’s stories, we will sing and dance our joys and sorrows and our prayers just as men have always done before we forgot how.
