The Young Men’s Rites of Passage (YMROP) is a five-day, wilderness-based retreat for young men between the ages of 18 to 29. Join other young men, mentors, and elders on a life-long journey of spiritual transformation, healthy masculinity, and initiation into manhood though the work of Illuman. ILLUMAN is a fellowship of “men transforming men, through a power greater than ourselves.” Our primary focus is inner work that makes a difference in the world. We are fed by the wisdom traditions of forgiveness and radical inclusivity. Using the ancient tools of nature, ritual, image, storytelling, and council we help one another reclaim the soul’s wisdom and the gift of joy. Bearing gifts that often come straight from the wound itself, we then re-join our sisters, brothers, and kin as healing agents in a hurting world.
