2014 Conference Registration

The Conference will be held from 4pm Friday, May 23 until 12 noon Monday, May 26, 2014.  The Conference is held at the Mendocino Woodlands Camp, in Mendocino County.  Built by down-and-out men of the WPA and the CCC in the Great Depression of the 1930’s, it is nestled in 700 acres of pristine redwood forest along the Little North Fork of the Big River, east of Fort Bragg.  The rustic camp with miles of hiking trails has provided local and national men’s groups with an inspiring setting since the 1980’s. (See mendocinowoodlands.org.)  This year, for the first time, we are thrilled to have our conference at Camp Two, the site of profound men’s rituals for over thirty years.  All meals will be catered by Chef Oscar of the Phantom Café.

Bring a friend, including young men, fifteen to twenty-five years old, who would benefit from this conference. We anticipate the need to scholarship some of these young men, so please consider a tax-deductible contribution toward the scholarship fund.

Eros and Its Shadow

24th Annual Men's Conference

2-EROSMemorial Day Weekend, May 23-26, 2014. Mendocino Woodlands Camp Two, Mendocino, California

We define ourselves in every part of our lives by our gender and our sexuality, often in terms of what we are not. Have we as men the courage to examine our programming around the erotic to see how it hinders our quest for wholeness?
