EVRYMAN: OPEN SOURCE MENS RETREAT
An Evryman Open Source retreat is very straightforward. It is 40 guys and 10 leaders coming together with the simple agreement to set aside cultural norms and be transparent, honest, and vulnerable with each other for a weekend. We use simple communication protocols as a large group, in small groups, and in pairs to reach deeper and deeper within ourselves to stop holding back who we are. We do hikes, sometimes in silence, and we create time for everyone to have some quiet time in nature. We do a service project, one that involves labor and getting dirty--not to be MANLY--but to come together as a group and feel the benefit of teamwork and giving back. We eat amazing food and have a badass talent show, and we leave feeling like we shed 30 pounds of emotional baggage and with a new group of deeply caring brothers and friends.
