A Peer-Led Weekend of Self-Discovery

Events in Israel, Mexico, Poland, USA

Journey Into Manhood

Our peer-led, experiential weekend of self-discovery, brotherhood, personal-growth and inner-healing work.

Journey Into Manhood is designed especially for men to address internal conflicts over their sexual thoughts, feelings, identity, values, and behaviors — in a compassionate yet challenging environment of self-discovery, inner healing, radical acceptance, and brotherly support.

Journey Into Manhood helps men explore and fulfill their needs for same-sex affection, community, and brotherhood in platonic and affirming ways that align with their faith and values.

But it is also appropriate for any man, regardless of his sexuality, who wants to address unhealed pain or unresolved issues around men and masculinity.

Journey Into Manhood is not a “gay-to-straight” intervention. It is not about anyone “converting” to heterosexuality.

Rather, it is about finding peace and self-acceptance, just as we are.  It is about embracing our masculinity, living authentically and in integrity, and surrendering shame. It’s about exploring and healing underlying pain from the past that may be contributing to troublesome thoughts, feelings, and behaviors today.

It’s about becoming a better, happier, more authentic, more powerful man — a man of integrity,  values, and purpose.
