A 5-day life changing program for men devised by Richard Rohr OFM which has been undertaken by over 5000 men across the world. The Rites have been undertaken by at least ten interfaith ministers in the UK, all of who support and endorse the programme; many continue to serve as members of the elder team for each Rites.
This is not about religion, but about spirituality. About age-old traditions that guide men into manhood. About coming to trust that there is something much greater at work in your life than you could ever imagine. Taking you sometimes OUT of your comfort zones, but more deeply back into your own life.
During the 5 days you will be held by an experienced team of male elders who have all previously undertaken the Rites themselves. As the Elders take you through the process of the Rites you will experience drumming, ritual, fire, silence, small groups, wilderness, solo-time, teaching … and more.
The Men’s Rites of Passage are suitable for men of all colour, age, sexuality, ethnicity and faith tradition (or no faith); men with more severe physical disabilities are asked to get in touch for further advice. Click here for more information.
We offer a tailored Young Men’s Rites of Passage for young men aged from 18 to 25.
