The Crossing is the intersection of humanity and divinity, choices and actions, light and shadow. Life is a perpetual series of crossings and crossroads, decisions and outcomes.
As men, particularly men of color, have often been forced to navigate the intersections of race and autonomy, earning and upward mobility, sensitivity and weakness, self esteem and healthy masculinity, there has been a diminishment of the Sacred Masculine.
This life-affirming gathering is curated to create dialogue and transparency, safe space without judgment, and sacred brotherhood, while equipping men with powerful tools for healing and self-care.
The Crossing Sacred Men's Retreat is THE healing destination forged to awaken and release your divine connection to Self and community. Nurturing experiences including classes and workshops, sacred writings and rituals, self-discovery exercises and guided meditations are all curated with your healing in mind. Lodging, all meals and snacks, and necessary ritual and class tools are included.
This life-changing 4 day event envelops you in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Blue Ridge, GA, a perfect location for release and restoration. We're going to do the work for Self, lineage, Ancestors, and community. Sacred Brotherhood, Mother Nature, and amazing experiences all converge to support the becoming of YOU! There's no other place to be Thursday, October 1 - Sunday, October 4, 2020!!!
