Soularize 2017—
Raising Up Elders: Men Transforming Men

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?

Men also become elders in the Illuman way through gathering, connecting, centering, releasing, and serving. To become an elder is not just the process of growing older—it is a much deeper, more profound soul encounter. How does it happen? Who can help guide us through this process?

This Soularize will bring together men to explore these questions through Council, time on the land, sharing from Illuman leaders, reflection, and prayer. Fr. Richard Rohr will join us and present his vision of what it means to be an elder. You are invited to save the date and join us in this work from October 26-29, 2017 in Bernalillo, New Mexico.

Soularize 2017 begins at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 26,
and ends by 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 29.

For scholarship availability, please contact Brad Pickel, Illuman Administrator.
