"Healing" is a funny word. My first reaction is, "Hey, who needs it?! Healing's for sickies, or new age touchy feelies (same thing, really),"'

My feelings aren't helped by a lot of the "helpful" stuff out there either. So much "good advice" that subtly re inflicts the problem it's supposed to deal with - anyway never works.

But, questions remain. How come I can't find a relationship that works for me? Why do I sabotage the ones I do find? What drives me to want more, more, more? How come I can't stand a compliment? ... or looking anyone In the eye?

Why can't I got started with work I really love? How come I discount what I do accomplish? Why do I hate my boss? What drives me to work, work, work? Why do I feel I never have anything?

Why am I so angry all the time? ... or never angry, no matter what??

When all's said and done, whatever word I use for it, I begin to suspect I might need a thing like Healing.

But Is healing possible? What Is It? How do I do It? ... or not do it? What does it feel like? What's, the difference between the real thing and all the "faux healing" out there?

When THE VILLAGE OF BROTHERS gathers at camp Hi Rock this May, Paul and John want to join the community in looking closely at all these questions.

By this time, many of us are familiar with the beauty of Camp HI Rock. As usual, we will focus on real experience ... centered on the Sweat Lodge as we "go into the dark!" Saturday evening.

We want every man possible to be there so we can have the greatest amount of experience and insight present to help us all touch some real answers.

We firmly believe every Brother that stays away is a loss to us. Every Brother that comes is a gift to himself and to every one of us. Please bring your questions and your answers. Help us build our community Into a circle of Healing for men.
