Gay, bisexual, and questioning men! Mark your calendar for a restorative winter gathering that will delight and surprise you!
Winter is a time for looking within. Make this your season to harness the power of brotherhood as you discover and bring forward a deeper self. Ben, a seasoned men’s-work facilitator, brings his creativity, community building skills, and experience with group process to create a weekend with a happy mix of caring and kindness, fun and renewal, sharing and self-nurturing, love and laughter, creative exercises and conversations (and a few surprises, too!). He was a long-time facilitator of Rowe’s renowned Labor Day Retreat for Gay, Bisexual, and Questioning Men, now in its 32nd year. If you’ve been to our Labor Day Retreats, then you know the sanctuary of comfort and community that can be experienced here, and if you’re a newbie, don’t be shy — this is your opening to a new experience of yourself and a chance to forge a deeper connection to the gay community and to make lifelong friends.
“Ben’s program was life changing for me. I took a risk with a group of strangers and discovered a community of like-minded and like-hearted GBT men who helped me walk out of the emotional hermitage where I had hidden myself for years.” – TL
“Ben’s warmth and gentleness shone through the weekend. It was an eye-opener being in a community of gay men where we could be vulnerable and intimate with one another. I highly recommend this to any gay man in search of self and community.” –WN
