Wild & Wise: Exploring Your Spiritual Legacy

Feb 5, 2021 – Feb 6, 2021

Every man has a spiritual legacy, a history of his searching for meaning, purpose and encounters with life’s mysteries. Whether conscious or unconscious, these experiences reflect the shape of a man’s soul and the lasting imprint he leaves on those he loves and the world around him.

Join this online Zoom gathering of men for an exploration of the spiritual realities embedded in everyday life. Our retreat facilitator, Steve Robach, will use the Wild and Wise journal he created to invite participants to reflect on and share some of the stories that make up their spiritual journeys

All men are welcome! - For More Information & To Register Click Here.
