NMMW Spring Retreat 2019


Spring Retreat is FULL! (and registration is closed)

Creativity & The Warrior


April 12, 13 and 14, 2019

at Hummingbird Music Camp, 104 Hummingbird Road, Jemez Springs NM 87025

Led by Victor La Cerva and Robert Bern


Conscious, empowered masculinity involves being intimate with both the warrior and the creative archetypal forces within us. We will explore together how these powerful inner energies can enliven and support each other, allowing us to manifest our deepest desires.

Open and inclusive to all men regardless of age, ethnicity, race, marital
status, or sexual orientation.  Limited to a total of 30 men.

Gather with a small community of men in a natural setting to explore, heal, and vitalize your relationship to your inner warrior and creative muse, over a Friday to Sunday program that will involve individual and small group experiential activities. We all carry the light and shadow of our warrior nature, as well as repression and expression of our creative gifts. What warrior qualities might we access –discipline, commitment, courage – to let our creative light shine?

“The path of the warrior is lifelong, and mastery is often simply staying on the path.”  Richard Strozzi Heckler
