Our Mission

We at the Redwood Men’s Center recognize the need for men to come together in community to express and explore ideas which restore wholeness to ourselves and Soul to the world. As healing professionals and men of service, we move beyond the limits of traditional psychology with its exclusive focus on ego concerns, by embracing the deeper needs of Soul through mythos and ritual. We provide a container in which to heal the wounds that result from our lost connection with Soul and support men in bringing this healing back to their communities.

We accomplish much of this through our Annual Men’s Conference, a yearly gathering among the Mendocino redwood trees over Memorial Day weekend. The community we create over these four days has a profound effect, lasting well beyond the weekend and carrying over into our return to daily life. The experience can be a challenge to describe, so we offer the video below as an introduction, and invite you to spend a few brief minutes viewing a little bit of what it’s all about and hearing the words of some of the men who have attended. We also invite you to fill out the form to the right so you can be notified as Conference announcements are made in the Spring of each year (your email address will not be shared – you will not be spammed and can easily unsubscribe at any time.)
