Michael Mee has sent a wonderful account of the Men of Heart weekend:
It was held at the Kupidabin Wilderness Retreat at Mt Samson, a place of peace and harmony dedicated to preserving the cultures and traditions of indigenous peoples. The gathering was unstructured (along the lines of BedRock) and the program for the weekend unfolded organically from the creative offerings of the men who attended. Men stepped up to lead as they felt the call. Music was an ever-present element with spontaneous jam sessions erupting regularly – drumming, guitar, didge’, flute, harmonica, clap sticks and chanting. Some men organised a fire in the tipi on Saturday afternoon which was our ceremonial space for the rest of the weekend. It was a powerful space for authentic, heart-centred expression.
