Three day
men’s gathering retreat

Since 2012, Menergy has helped thousands of men discover themselves,
celebrate masculinity and build lasting friendships with other good men.

Menergy 2021!

Hello wonderful Men!  We hope that you and your families are well, and are managing to find your way through the challenging times that we find ourselves in.  We’ve heard the call of so many men who are in need of a space; to deepen into what it means to be a man in these times, to explore how we can heal and grow and be of service to our families and communities; and to connect with other men on this journey.  We are here for you!

After the disappointment of having to cancel Menergy 2020, we are working hard to create the best Menergy yet, and 2021 is shaping up to be a beautiful new beginning. There are many amazing workshop facilitators (some from previous events and some new) stepping up, and our team of Tribal Group Facilitators are coming together.

We look forward to welcoming you to Menergy 2021, on Thursday 7 October 2021 at Licola!

Thank you all so much for being here with us.  We will see you soon.

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. "

"The most profound event I’ve witnessed for men’s personal growth, that honours your individuality and personal needs."

Workshops

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.

Location

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