Very often understanding my feelings proves elusive. They remain difficult to define. They seem an impenetrable mystery. I feel “foggy.” I am “unclear.”

Exactly why do I feel as I do? …operate the way I do? ...react as I do? …seek what I seek? …avoid what I avoid? Why sort of man am I? …and why?

All too often, I am advised away from what is my best source of information. I am instructed to avoid feelings …leave them behind…get beyond them. They’re bad!

Simultaneously, I am also counseled to avoid my early experiences, any idea that they continue to exert the most profound influences on my present feelings. In the most literal sense, I am advised to remain clueless!


Amid beautiful Autumn surroundings, the brothers On The Common Ground will gather once again this October at Camp Hi Rock to explore this mystery.

We will use talk, silence, exercises, and the Sweat Lodge to explore why and how each of us feels precisely the way we do.

Can I recall what happened and see how I express it in what I do every day? Or, can I remember nothing of what happened to me and express that in what I do every day? What shapes me to be the man I am?

Please join us with your experience …your questions …your energy ,,,your mysteries. Whatever way you deal with these questions, you will bring your gift to our gathering.
