  • What is Inward?

    Many of you Men are working to heal and step into responsibility on a personal level and beyond.

     

    The only problem is that you are probably looking for answers within a culture that is at its foundations unsustainable, oriented toward un-ending growth, scarcity and competition.

     

    What if you stopped fighting against or fitting in with modern culture, and started over in a completely new territory?

     

    Dismantling the conditioning you received in Patriarchy about what a man is, what a man should be, and how a man should interact in the world is a ground-breaking experience. You have the possibility of standing in reality and looking about you at what is possible.

     

    Inward is a chance for you to stop looking outward for what a man is supposed to be, and to unfold the man you are and the man you want to be. There is no one-size-fits-all recipe for a 'Man'.

     

    Inward is not religious. Men over 18 years old from all walks of life, of any religion and any sexuality are welcome.

     

    Inward is not a retreat or a men's gathering, it is a transformational journey where we stay together as a team for every session and eat together at meal times.

     

    The days begin at 7AM and end at approximately 9.30PM.

    Which facts to choose?

    There are a lot of opinions out there about climate change, ecosystem degradation, and the looming consequences of an unsustainable culture. There are even a lot of 'facts'. How do you know which ones are real? How do you get a firm enough grip on reality that you can actually start doing something about it instead of distracting yourself or being hopeless? This interview of Clinton Callahan by Tristan will not give you the answers, it might give you a sense of your own responsibility and creation power to get busy creating what really matters to you without being naïve about what is really going on.
