Men’s Collective Retreat: Finding time to connect with a community of peers in a safe, fun, healing gathering

Escape the demands of daily life and immerse yourself in a unique weekend at FireLoch’s Men’s Collective Retreat. Set amidst the forested trails at FireLoch, this retreat offers a unique opportunity to reconnect with yourself and find a brotherhood of peers. Axe throwing and fireside meals will be on the agenda alongside yoga, meditation, and men’s talking & sharing circles. Great for folks who have never participated in a gathering of this nature or for friends looking to deepen their practice together.

**Why Should You Come?**

With all the demands in our fast-paced world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and disconnected. This retreat provides a sanctuary where we will pause together to reflect on what it will take to feel greater balance. We will share our experiences with work, family relationships, and finding time for ourselves in the day. Throughout the retreat we will work together to share, heal and connect.

Our Facilitation Leaders:

This Retreat is hosted by Scott DeCoste, owner of FireLoch, a social enterprise in Lochaber, Antigonish. Scott has built FireLoch to be an inclusive and affirming gathering place intentionally hosting space for building joy and connection.

Jon Colins will act as primary facilitator and Jon is a 500 hr Certified yoga teacher and trauma informed yoga instructor (TIYTIN) /Men circle facilitator.

What to Expect:
