This October, Illuman will be exploring the ways in which men are “eldered.” This can be understood in two ways. First, men are supported to become their authentic selves by elders: men who have walked that path before them. To be eldered by another man is to be recognized, respected, and met at the soul level. How, where, and when does this happen? We hope you will join us in this work from October 26-29, 2017.
