1. Update for Soularize 2017 
Raising up Elders: Men Transforming Men

Soularize: Raising Up Elders (2017)Registration for Soularize 2017 – Raising up Elders: Men Transforming Men is well underway with men attending from 31 U.S. States and two countries. In addition, the room block at the Hyatt Tamaya Resort is now SOLD OUT! Visit the event website for general information, and event and hotel registration.

This October, Illuman will be exploring the ways in which men are “eldered.” This can be understood in two ways.  First, men are supported to become their authentic selves by elders: men who have walked that path before them. To be eldered by another man is to be recognized, respected, and met at the soul level. How, where, and when does this happen?

We hope you will  join us in this work from October 26-29, 2017 in Bernalillo, New Mexico.To remain in contact with Illuman and stay abreast of upcoming events including details for Soularize 2017, we recommend you sign up for Drumbeat, our monthly e-newsletter.
