Three day
men’s gathering retreat

Over the last 8 years, Menergy has helped thousands of men discover themselves,
celebrate masculinity and build lasting friendships with other good men.

Menergy 2020

It’s with a heavy heart and much sadness that the Menergy Leadership Circle has made the decision to cancel the Menergy gathering for 2020.

This has been a difficult decision to arrive at, especially given the circumstances and the knowledge that Menergy is more needed and relevant than ever. We were watching the current situation in the hope that things might open up enough to allow us to have an in-person gathering in some form. But with the second lockdown this now appears increasingly unlikely.

We are focusing our efforts on providing Tribal Groups Online to support our community through this time, and encourage all men needing support or connection to sign up, or to get in touch if you’re interested to be a Tribal Group Facilitator. We are also investigating options for other online events later in the year.

We thank our community for its support and realise that this is another blow in an already difficult year. We are 100% committed to bringing back Menergy in 2021 and look forward to gathering with you in Licola next year.

Being a modern man has its challenges.

It is expected that men will take on the roles of providers, protectors, and leaders. At the same time, we are also expected to practise emotional openness, vulnerability and sensitivity. How does a modern man strike this delicate balance in his mission, community, and relationships?

That’s why Menergy was created. It serves as a place for men to come together, explore the challenges of modern life, and map out a path to honour the changing times – while embracing the essence of who we are as men.

"Menergy has been nothing short of life changing, and life affirming for me. Arriving at Menergy for the first time in 2017, I had not been exposed to “men’s work” before, and I left Menergy with new hope, feeling deeply connected and with a huge smile. "
Mikey Ivany
"The most profound event I’ve witnessed for men’s personal growth, that honours your individuality and personal needs."
Adam Weaver


Open your mind with three days of powerful and transformative workshops covering masculinity, relationships, spirituality, sexuality, empowerment, self-development and more.

Group Support

During the duration of the retreat, you will be part of a small group facilitated by an experienced group leader. This facilitates deep conversations and meaningful connections.

Sharing Circles

Experience the sharing circle where you will be given the space to speak your truth without interruption or judgment. This allows for deeper connection and healing, and your intentions are able to take root and grow.


The gathering is set in the beautiful country of Licola on the banks of the Macalister River in Gippsland. You have the freedom to play in the sun, enjoy the scenery, and swim in the river.

"I cannot recommend Menergy highly enough. It’s medicine that you didn’t know you needed"
