We help men step deeper into Life.
Illuman was birthed out of the remarkable work of Richard Rohr, O.F.M., and has spread 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 nature, story, ritual, council, and imagery. ALL ARE WELCOME. JOIN US.

Council gatherings meet throughout the PNW.

Do You Hunger For The Life You Were Meant To Live?
As a result, in this community you’ll find Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, and plenty of none-of-the-aboves. Our community is made up of conservatives, liberals, wealthy, poor, gay, straight, young, old…who are joined together in the quest to live rooted, loving, lives of depth.
“The Perennial Tradition encompasses the recurring themes in all of the world’s religions and philosophies that continue to say: there is a Divine Reality underneath and inherent in the world of things, there is in the human soul a natural capacity, similarity, and longing for this Divine Reality, and the final goal of existence is union with this Divine Reality.”– Fr. Richard Rohr
