The Summer Man retreat is a space to connect with and express those deeper parts of yourself that we do not often get the opportunity to get to know. Held within a sacred space, we will let the land be our teacher, let the spirits be our guide and let our true selves shine through.

This weekend's journey will take place through sharing circles, meditations, sacred crafting, shamanic journeys, time out on the land as well as Fire Ceremony.

This is a fully inclusive retreat and will be held at The Greenery in Worcestershire, UK, in the retreat centre and surrounding lands. As well as working within a sacred space indoors, we will also be working out on the land in the tree circles, orchards, and beside the River Avon, flowing just a few minutes’ walk away.

Accommodation is provided at the Greenery in twin rooms, and we will eat communally.

The cost of the Summer Man Retreat is £285. A non-refundable deposit of £100 is needed as early as possible to secure your booking. There is a discount for those who have attended the Summer Man or WInter Man retreats before.

We will share vegetarian communal meals over the weekend. Please do inform us when booking of any allergies that we need be aware of. This is an alcohol and drug free event.

This retreat is open to all men from 18 years onward, is LGBT inclusive and, while the practices have roots in spiritual traditions, they are open to anyone of any belief, faith or none.

Timings: Please arrive from 6pm on Friday 31st May so that we may be ready to begin by 7:30pm. We will share our first meal at 6pm on the Friday evening. All timings of activities within the retreat will be told to you as we go through the weekend. We will be aiming to finish and be ready to depart on Sunday by 4pm.

A list of what to bring will be provided nearer to the retreat date. As best as we can, we will look to coordinate car sharing to the venue to help keep the environment impact as low as we can.

There are a limited number of concessionary or partial exchange place for assistance with the retreat.

Some feedback from our previous Men’s Spiritual Retreats

Jonathan is certainly a remarkable young man and one not to miss if the opportunity to work with him arises. Unlike many facilitators, who direct from the edge of the circle, Jonathan not only innovatively facilitated but fully participated with great honesty & integrity from within the circle, equally as a member, a leader and a man not concerned with expressing his vulnerabilities. This accelerated the collapse of any barriers, self doubt, shyness and resistance to create a warm, inclusive and dynamic environment that bought the best out of everyone, leading to an insightful, positive and lasting healing which still resonates with me several weeks later. Thank you Jonathan for your soulful wisdom.
