WA Men's Gathering
Coming of Age

Connection: the relationship in which a person is linked with another.

This year's WA Men's Gathering invites you to explore the relationships linking men with the generations that precede and proceed us. Together, we hope to…

"Connect the stories of life's stages"

To ensure future generations the opportunity to continue traditions and beliefs, our elders are implored to impart their wisdom. The question begs, can this be done without connecting to one's past first?

This journey is not solely the responsibility of our elders. We require each generation to tell their story present, past and future so connection is truly achieved.

During the course of the weekend, we invite you to share your story: the fun, the challenges and triumphs, so that they do not become lost fables.

LET'S EXPLORE OUR STORIES

Over the duration of the WA Men's Gathering weekend, we will write a story. It will be the story of a group of men who gathered in a sacred space to share knowledge, experiences, memories and dreams which may be told for generations to come.

Join us on this incredible journey and be part of the celebration that is connection.

Why you should be there …

Activity

Let's face it – you owe it to yourself! You deserve a break. We have a wonderful bush setting, and it's a chance to get away, relax and surround yourself with good men - young and old alike and good quality food.

Looking for some answers in your life? This is the place you can talk about what's important to you – relationships, partners, your children, your hopes and aspirations, things that bother you deep down or give you joy. No judgment or lectures about how you should be. At the Gathering we learn from sharing our experiences and our own life's journey.

The Program aims to produce visionary, balanced, sensual, connected, healthy, adventurous, natural, courageous and whole men who will be better men for a better world.
