What is a Men’s Gathering?
A Men’s Gathering is a space for men to meet, laugh, learn and explore some of the issues affecting our lives. It allows men to meet in a safe, confidential, and respectful way where we can share our story, reflect on life, have some fun, and better understand ourselves and our place in the world.
2022 WA Men’s Gathering
The theme for the 2022 Gathering is Building the Whole Man -Finding the Missing Pieces. It will be held at Jarrahfall Bush Camp located near Dwellingup over the weekend of 18 – 20 November. This peaceful bush setting will provide a back-to-nature feel for the whole weekend.
You can expect fire pits, workshops, great meals, group work, yoga, fun, ceremony, laughter, music, bushwalking, storytelling, and above all… mateship.
The Gathering program starts on Friday evening and finishes around 2pm on Sunday. You have the option of arriving on Friday afternoon to spend some extra time getting to know the other men participating, prior to the formal program starting.
With this year’s theme Building the Whole Man – Finding the Missing Pieces, we want to explore looking inward to improve our world and that of our families. How the world perceives us and the ever-changing model of masculinity. The Gathering will provide you with a chance to deal with all of that and make some authentic connections.
