An immersive retreat for men wanting to rest reflect and delve deeper into themselves, life, God, and the unknown.
n October 2021 Jersey will host a Men’s Rites of Passage inspired retreat for the first time. We will be gathering together a group of men who are eager to journey together into the wilds of Jersey’s incredible landscapes and into the wilds of their inner life for personal exploration and transformation.
Drawing on the inspiration of recent men’s movements and more ancient traditions of rites of passage, Journey Into The Wild is a retreat with a difference. Now in its 8th year, the event takes place for the first on the island of Jersey in the stunning and historic venue of L'Etacquerel Fort.
As we come out the other side of a global pandemic, and in a time of constant changes and uncertainty we are providing a space where men can take some rare and precious time to think more deeply about the meaning and purpose of their lives, and their unique calling in this world – to move into the next season with renewed strength, energy, courage.
There will be times of physical activity such as coasteering and hiking. As well as venturing out into the landscape, there will be thought-provoking curated sessions exploring Jungian archetypes, rituals of transformation and rites of passage, and time for discussion and sharing in small groups
Some things to expect are walking, swimming, feasting, praying, thinking, storytelling, meditating, campfires, watching, waiting....
The key facilitators of the gathering will be:
Tony Vino, an experienced retreat leader, comedian and writer for Sorted Men’s Magazine and serial podcaster on men’s issues. www.tonyvino.co.uk
