One gift we discovered out of the COVID pandemic of 2020 was online video conferencing with zoom or the like as a way that men could continue to gather. Geographical boundaries became irrelevant. What was more important was the intention of the event. We may have come through the pandemic with physical meetings happening again but some of our online events continue on a regular basis. Below are the details with the person/s to contact for more information and links. These are open events for any man.
Please see below for further information about these events.
Morning Practice Sessions
Meditation, reflection and council on the nature of living life in brotherhood and community. They are open to all men - no previous experience or contact is required.
When? Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 8am - 9:15am
Where? Zoom. Link for all sessions: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6053084133
From Hero to Elder – An Experience for Old Men
(but naturally at our age no guarantees are given !)
So, we have grown into the fullness of our years but we have done so in a place and time that is all but elder-free. So we had better look to ourselves as to how to be gathered into a deeper wakefulness just as we are deepened by our diminution.
The invitation here is for older men (55+) also in the belief that we are not best served by another heroic and individual Rites of Passage. That will come soon enough.
However, as always we do need to be in relationship with one another to listen for what needs to emerge.
We do need to live our lives so we have something to offer and to be in service to something greater than ourselves.
It feels time to bring the gifts we have been long gathering so a deeper and stronger connection might be made truly Brothers without Borders.
A community of men searching together for that wholesome ease we are called to embody in these troubled times.
Break even cost: Residential £160
An opportunity as neighbours and as a community of men to reflect and share on what helps, what hinders and how this shows up in our lives.
All men are welcome all are needed – we swim in the same river.
Ardhan invites us to one of his breathwork sessions on a monthly basis as we have looked for new ways to come together during these turbulent times. If you are open to turning deeper into yourself - for healing, for meaning, for purpose, for inspiration then this is for you. Breathwork is an embodied practice well suited to men who are looking for this. It is similar to meditation but more active and works well using the online Zoom app. Ardhan is a trained Breathwork Facilitator (with 'Alchemy of Breath’).
When? 3rd Wednesday of each month
Where? Pre-event instructions/guidance can be found here: https://innerventures.me/breath/ or by contacting Ardhan using the address below
Gaychat for Queer Men
In the present era it was always going to be potentially problematic calling it ‘Gaychat’ when we now have such a long list of gender identities but had to call it something and its for any queer man at home or abroad.
When? 3rd Thursday of each month 7.00pm - 8.30pm
