Sex, Love, Intimacy – An Illuman SoCal Men’s Retreat

May 4, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - May 6, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Male sexuality is a mysterious gift of the Divine.  We understand God as intimate Trinitarian relationship and our sexuality as a mirror and metaphor of divine embrace.  However, we often are ashamed of our naked humanness, our earthiness, our wildness. We know, at an intuitive level, that sexuality is the experience and true expression of one’s deep self.  But, when spirituality and sexuality become separated, we in turn become lost, lonely and disconnected.  Sexuality becomes a futile attempt to obtain true love and deep intimacy.  In this retreat, Fr. Jim Clarke*, along with a panel of men, will explore and guide us to integrate the different aspects of male sexuality into our lives and spirituality. We will use the traditional tools of myth, ritual, solitude, prayer and council to explore this exciting mystery.

Date: May 4-6, 2018

Location: Camp Cedar Glen, Julian, CA

Cost:  The total cost for the weekend is a sliding scale between $275-375, which includes registration, accommodation and meals.  We appreciate any payment above the minimum $275, which will go toward a scholarship fund for brothers in financial need.  Registration can be made now by payment in full or with a $50 deposit; full payment must be received by Apr 27.  A non-refundable $50 cancellation fee is applied if cancellation occurs after Apr 6.   Click below for the flyer.   Click at the bottom to register.

________________________

La sexualidad masculina es un don misterioso de la divinidad. Entendemos a Dios como una íntima relación trinitaria, y nuestra sexualidad como en un espejo y metáfora del acogimiento divino. Sin embargo, frecuentemente nos avergonzamos de nuestra desnudez humana, nuestra condición terrenal y nuestro salvajismo. Al nivel intuitivo, sabemos que la sexualidad es la experiencia y la expresión de lo más profundo del ser. Sin embargo, cuando se separe la espiritualidad de la sexualidad, quedamos perdidos, aislados y separados. La sexualidad vanamente busca obtener el verdadero amor y la profunda intimidad. En este retiro, P. Jim Clarke, con un panel de hombres, explorará este tema y nos guiará para integrar los varios aspectos de la sexualidad masculina en nuestras vidas y nuestra espiritualidad. Se implementarán los elementos tradicionales del mito, rito, soledad, oración y concilio. Habrá oportunidades para el dialogo y concilio en español.
