I just want to give a shout out about two upcoming men’s gatherings on two totally separate corners of the U.S.
Spirituality Community Camp
I just found out about Spirituality Community Camp to be held May 27-30, 2016 (Memorial Day Weekend) at Camp Round Meadow, Angelus Oaks, CA. This is a first time event hosted by CalComMen (California Community of Men). They’re advertising the possibility of 100 men. That’s awesome! The theme is “From Your Head to Your Heart.” It’s a chance to deepen your spiritual path in a community of Pagan men. The price is one flat fee of $175 that include three nights and four days and a meal plan, among other offerings

Midsummer Men’s Retreat
This one is being held by my local Pagan Men’s group and I’m involved in the planning and will be hosting a workshop. The Midsummer Men’s Retreat is being held the weekend of June 3-5, 2016 at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This is a smaller focused retreat and the main day of workshops will be June 4. We’re expecting somewhere between a dozen and 20 attendees. The theme of the event involves the Fey, nature spirits, thresholds, and liminal space. Early-bird pre-registration prices have ended, but we’re still accepting pre-pays and at-the-gate registrations. Meals are included in the cost. Registrations for tent spaces on our campsite has ended, but folks can still get campsites directly from the park or make other overnight accommodations as needed. At the gate costs are: $15 for Friday, $50 for Saturday, and $10 for Sunday.
