In the Male Bag- January 2017

Hey Guys:

Well our dinner last week was wonderful, thanks to all who came out for the big chill - a very relaxing time.
Thanks especially to Rob Clairmont and Mark Dallaire - for co-hosting.

We're also looking forward to welcoming back Iype -- who, if all things went well -- is now married;
 and has dragged a dear young woman (Elsa) to Canada. Details to follow.

1. Men's Circle - next Monday night, January 30th; 7 - 9:15 pm ... out at Bethesda as usual.
  Carpool from St Joe's about 6:15-6:20 (depart)
   RSVP's required. Please bring your own drum if possible.
   see our website for more info "Next Circle"

   Our theme this Monday is:
    Introducing the "Journey Among the Archetypes - an invitation for all men in 2017 "
        starting with "a Preview Boy Psychology - the 4 archetypes look like in childhood"    We'll also discuss-
      > How the journey can include the Retreat with Fr Jim Clarke (see below)?
      > How to begin the journey right away - if you haven't already?
      > How might you bring this into your small group?  Or group of buddies?   Or starting a small study group?

    ** The book is available on Amazon for $13 or so -- here's the link
         "King Lover Magician Warrior" by Robert Moore (Phd) 

     The piece on 'Boy Psychology" is Part 1 of this book; which we'll look at in more depth in February;
      we'll just Preview it this Monday.

2. A major Clarification about the Men's Retreat in 2017
   The Men's Weekend Retreat with Fr Jim Clarke at Galilee on August 18-20, 2017 is 'BACK ON' and Confirmed.
   * Please save the date.
   * Reservations (with early bird rates) begin February 15.
   * Heads up! - space is limited to 25 men - and the spots could go quickly.
   * It's part of a broader invitation to journey in 2017 with language and lens of the archetypes.  
   * Fuller details will be sent out this weekend;
Finally, here's a preview to a movie (you can watch whole thing on Netflix) called "The Mask You Live In" -- very worthwhile.
 It may even you get you in touch with your own story as a boy and young man.

Have a great week.
RSVP's are very helpful - as we need to cap numbers at 18 (that's all we can jam into the Cabin.)

in Gratitude
