This Summer 2021 Weekend for Men will be held at the Homestead at Forest Lakes just north of Otaki on the Kapiti Coast. The Homestead can comfortably accommodate 30 men.

The Gathering will start over an evening meal on Thursday 18 March 2021, followed by an introductory circle, sharing our intentions for our time together. Our weekend will evolve from that process, and we will finish up around 1 pm on Sunday 21 March 2021.

This weekend offers the opportunity to step outside our daily lives, lives that may define and limit us. Learning from past experience, we will use both sharing circles and open space sessions to allow each of us the opportunity to claim what we need for ourselves.

There is a great campfire site close by the Homestead that we will be able to enjoy, weather permitting.
Our time together and what we do) is co-created by those attending. There will be opportunities to offer processes, facilitate a discussion on a topic that is real for you, walk in nature, or simply take time out, and to ask for what you need/want. This is not a workshop. It is an opportunity to co-create our time together, to use the power of the circle to share of ourselves, and to explore issues close to our hearts.


Registration accepted on a first come, first served basis up to the 30 attendees capacity. Email Peter at to register interest and to receive further information including fee payment.
