Upcoming Illuman Of Washington Events
Men’s Rites of Passage: The MROP returns to the Pacific Northwest May 22-26, 2024.
Illuman of British Columbia, with support from Illuman of Washington and Illuman of Oregon, is hosting Canada’s first MROP on May 22-26, 2024. The event will take place at a camp in Deroche, BC—approximately 90 minutes east of Vancouver. The cost for the event is $650. This includes all meals, lodging, and the five-day MROP. Some financial support is available. Our hope is to make the MROP accessible to all men who want to participate. If you need any support with your application or would like to discuss any financial need, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications for initiates are now open. Please complete this form if you would like to attend the MROP.
Elder Rites of Passage: The EROP returns in 2024.
Where the MROP serves primarily as an initiation into the second half of life (though we regularly have men in their 60s and 70s attend), the EROP serves as a gathering of men beginning and/or deepening their eldering journey.
Stoke the Fire
Illuman of Washington offers a range of gatherings on an ongoing basis. These include quarterly wilderness wanderings, firesides, backpacking, councils, retreats, work days, service work, and more.
The location and other details for each Washington council are announced each month in the newsletter. Council includes practices that touch on all five of our touchstones, but the best way to learn about council is to experience council. Council is open to all men. For those who live far from an existing council circle, we have virtual council groups that meet as well.
