Calling all brothers to participate in an evening of discovery, connection, movement, music, and meditation.

The purpose of this event/gathering is to celebrate the masculine in it's many forms. We also gather to break the patterns of isolation that men face in our society. When we are able to feel connected and supported by our brothers, men bring out the best in each other. Together, our full potential is made MANifest!
