Nearby Camp Chesterfield is hosting a men’s retreat called Today’s Man in the Aquarian Age. We invite you to learn more about this event by following the links. There’s a detailed schedule of the many sessions and information about how to register.

Umbrales - Illuman Español 🇲🇽

Esta es una experiencia espiritual para hombres, no es un retiro tradicional. UMBRALES, un evento de cuatro noches y cinco días, es apropiado para todo hombre que está en la búsqueda espiritual, que ya haya comenzado algún tipo de crecimiento espiritual masculino, y que no se encuentre en medio de una reacción en contra de Dios, la gracia y la transformación. Aunque la experiencia incorpora imágenes y ritos de varias tradiciones religiosas, gozamos de nuestra herencia judeo-cristiana.
