Continuing the evolution of the Conference begun in 2010, the 2011 Conference will be marked by some significant changes: first, the Conference will run from Thursday through Sunday, instead of Friday through Monday as it has in the past. We thought that, jobwise, it will be better for attendees to have a full work week just prior to the Memorial Day weekend.
Second difference: a new location at the Mendocino Woodlands Camp, a rustic, secluded redwood area in Mendocino County which has been saturated with spirit over the years by the Mendocino Men's Conferences and Sufi camps. This spot was selected not only because of its wild beauty, but also because, if we like it this year, it will be available to us in the future on Memorial Day weekend.
Dearest Redwood Men,
I'm sorry I cannot be there with you at this
20th anniversary conference. The limits of old age and the energy
it demands to do even the littlest thing makes it impossible for my body
to be with you, but know that I am with you in spirit always. What
you are doing is essential. It is life affirming, and in the end
it will save us. Of all the conferences I used to attend, I miss
coming to yours the most. A special feeling grew among those
majestic Redwoods for sure and I was fortunate to have experienced it
many times. I understand now that a new location will be the home
for your community. Although the surroundings may have changed the
essence of what you are about hasn't. I know that the story still
beacons, the voices still sing, and the circle still holds true.
My best wishes to you all,
Robert A. Johnson

We at the Redwood Mens Center recognize the need for men to come together in community to express and explore ideas which restore wholeness to ourselves and Soul to the world. As healing professionals and men of service, we move beyond the limits of traditional psychology with its exclusive focus on ego concerns, by embracing the deeper needs of Soul through mythos and ritual. We provide a container in which to heal the wounds that result from our lost connection with Soul and support men in bringing this healing back to their communities.
