1. Illuman: Journey Together

In this introductory video, men describe how they found Illuman and are supported by the Journey of Illumination.

2. Illuman Way of Council

The Way of Council is Illuman’s primary practice, implemented at all levels of our work, from rites of passage to chapter meetings, from our homes to our wider communities. We respect this enough to equip men to do it well, but we acknowledge that council emerges apart from our efforts to control it. Circles have an archetypal life of their own. Council is the best teacher of council. In this video, Jim Taylor describes the Illuman Way of Council for attendees to Soularize 2016.

3. Drawing from a Deep Well With Fr. Richard Rohr

In November 2016, Illuman hosted Fr. Richard Rohr for the Drawing from a Deep Well Men’s Retreat in Bernalillo, NM. Fr. Richard led attendees on an up close and personal journey through his 35 years in the development of male spirituality retreats and programs that led to the creation of Illuman in 2012.  With his ever-present sense of humor and touching insight, he makes himself vulnerable by sharing stories and reflections on his own spiritual and personal journey.
