On The Common Ground
Retreats and Workshops

Soul work simply doesn't happen if not done in relationship. That is, in relationship to ourselves, including our past, present and future. But this work must be done in relationship to our community - the men, women and children in our lives, the society we live in, the environment that surrounds us, the animals and plants and the planet upon which we live.

On The Common Ground been actively sponsoring and promoting retreats, workshops, conferences and lectures for over ten years. Our annual spring and fall "Village of Brothers" retreats, in particular, offer men the opportunity to come together in community with other like-minded men willing to explore the uniqueness of their gifts and their truth, including their fear, anger, joy and sorrow. These retreats offer opportunities to experience and to ask questions. To laugh and to cry. To give and receive support and acceptance. To learn that we are not alone in the community of brothers. Or, to do none of the above.
