The Irish poet John O'Donohue said it best...
"There are no manuals for the construction of the individual you would like to become. You are the only one who can decide this and take up the lifetime of work that it demands.
This is a wonderful privilege and such an exciting adventure. To grow into the person that your deepest longing desires is a great blessing. If you can find a creative harmony between your soul and your life, you will have found something infinitely precious.
You may not be able to do much about the great problems of the world or to change the situation you are in, but if you can awaken the eternal beauty and light of your soul, you will bring light wherever you go. The gift of life is given to us for ourselves and also to bring peace, courage, and compassion to others."
At Soularize 2022, Illuman's annual men's gathering, we will utilize The Work that Reconnects, a process pioneered by author and teacher Joanna Macy, to help awaken our true selves and rediscover the men we would like to become.
Soularize is not for the faint of heart. Not just a "conference," at Soularize we will utilize ritual, story, nature wanderings, contemplative practices, and intensive inner work in groups both large and small to dig deep past the layers of ego and trauma and uncover that light buried within each of us - the gift that each of us brings to a world in desperate need. It will not be easy, but it will be worth it.
Are you ready to awaken? Are you ready for Soularize?
