A COMMUNITY OF MEN TRANSFORMING MEN THROUGH A POWER GREATER THAN THEMSELVES
Illuman was birthed out of the remarkable work of Richard Rohr, O.F.M., and has spread to communities all over the world. Our Washington State community of men is committed to living authentic, connected lives of love and service. We are fed by the wisdom traditions of forgiveness and radical inclusivity; we seek a life-changing spirituality; and we recognize the need to gather regularly to do our own inner work and to help others. We are part of a new generation of men’s work that explores true masculinity, honoring the beauty in all things, through the ancient tools of story, ritual, council and imagery. ALL ARE WELCOME. JOIN US.
Do You Hunger To Live The Life You Were Meant For?
The Men’s Rites of Passage returns to the Pacific Northwest May 15-19, 2019, at Skalitude Wilderness Center in the foothills of the North Cascade Mountains. Discover why thousands of men all over the world continue to find these five days deeply transforming and life giving. The MROP serves for many as an entry point into the Illuman community. Find out more on the MROP section of the site.
COUNCIL – We have council groups in Seattle/Lynnwood, Woodinville, Tacoma, Bremerton, Spokane, Walla Walla, Leavenworth, and Vancouver (Portland). Curious? connect with one of our Council gatherings. Council is the best way to immediately connect with men on the journey in your region. Come as you are.
Council is a place uncommon to the rest of life where you are invited to put down the mantel(s) you carry, put down the many identities and roles you play, reconnect to Life itself and sink deeper into your true self, using a variety of practices that have stood the test of time and come to us from wisdom traditions around the world. ~Ned Abenroth, Washington Convener
