On behalf of Illuman of the Pacific Northwest, we are thrilled (beyond thrilled really) to announce that registration for the MROP at Skalitude is officially open!
Richard Rohr (and others) created this experience some 25 years ago. The stories of thousands of past participants and the fact that it continues to be offered in multiple countries each year to this day, both are testaments to the enduring power of this transformative encounter.
Joining the MROP with the sheer power of the Skalitude valley, takes things to an entirely different level. There may be no better Holiday gift, than passing on an invitation or a registration for a man in your life.
No matter where you call home, this sacred and remote valley in the foothills of the North Cascade Mountains, awaits you. Whether this is your first time participating in an MROP or perhaps you are returning yet again to serve on the team, in the kitchen or as an initiator, the land awaits you…and even now, a place is being prepared for you by a remarkable group of men.
Don’t wait long to register, we anticipate pent-up demand might lead to MROP’s around the US filling up quicker than normal.
All the information you could ever want is on our website here. However if you are ready to go directly to the application/registration here are the links:
Team/Kitchen register here We still need additional folks to serve in the kitchen….
May 25-29, 2022. First time participants arrive in the early afternoon on Wednesday, and the event ends at 2pm on Sunday. Returning men may arrive Monday morning the 23rd through Wednesday morning the 25th.
Skalitude Retreat Center, not far from Carlton WA.
For first time participants and returning initiators, the sliding scale options range from $495 and up, with a standard cost of $675, and with scholarships available for those who need to pay less than $475. The price includes food, lodging, and the event. We expect that the omicron spike to not be a factor by May, but of course if COVID forces the event to be cancelled, we will offer full refunds
