Redwood Men’s Conference

Redwood Men's Conference on May 26, 2017 in Mendocino, CA : The Crucible of Change in a Time of Unknowing
Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
– Gilda Radner
Though Change is constant, there are times when it is particularly pressing and demands our attention. This is undoubtedly such a time. How do we react to Change? Are we frightened by it and propelled into division, argument and blame? Or do we respond by imagining new directions and attempt together to guide and create our collective change? If our reality is shaped, formed, created by our consciousness, why do we find ourselves in a world so much less than our liking? We accept the pain of the world and, feeling powerless, muffle even the sorrow we feel for our condition. Have we compromised our will and sabotaged our determination to change?
The shadow of our complacency and fear has reared its head, and it is ugly enough that we can no longer avoid looking at it. Now that it has been revealed, we have the opportunity to acknowledge, confront and transform it — within ourselves and within the broader culture. Real empowerment happens when we respond internally to the change happening around us. We can do this by following our inspiration, by performing daily service and by engaging in real ritual to make community. In this great undertaking, each of us needs the support of our brothers. A strong community is essential. The Alchemists spoke of a crucible — a strong container — to hold the work of transformation. Come to the conference and help build such a community and container.
