Undoing Patriarchy and Unveiling the Sacred Masculine

February 12 @ 6:00 pm - February 13 @ 9:00 pm

Undoing Patriarchy and Unveiling the Sacred Masculine


Through retreat and meditation, by using the dharma and dialogue, sharing and personal storytelling, journaling and ritual, we will together unpack how patriarchy has shaped our expressions of masculinity and the self more generally. We will take up a dharmic lens to examine our relationship to violence and domination, power, femininity, love and sexuality along a path to unveiling and honoring non-patriarchal expressions of who we are as human beings.


Our intention is to illuminate how patriarchal expressions of self create suffering for all of us as we begin to develop a relationship to a more sacred masculinity.
Our hope is that these efforts will not only further our own liberation, but begin to cultivate spiritual communities and a human world where both the sacred feminine and masculine are held in loving balance.
