15-17 September 2017
(optional 15-18 September)
This year the theme of BedRock will have us thinking about the nature of service. Spend a weekend learning how mindful listening works. Take part in the process of identifying new Elders and spend some quality time alone. BedRock is the perfect first gathering for men who are new to men’s work, allowing time for your to communicate at new levels, not only with more experienced men, but with other men who are learning the ropes of man-to-man communications.
Bedrock is a smaller, more intimate, and unique Mens Wellbeing gathering held annually at The Rock. Sponsored by our Elders, we intend for the weekend to flow with ease and grace through being less structured than our larger gatherings. This also means more opportunities to connect at a deeper level to the land, to the gathered community and to yourself.
Held at The Rock (our retreat site just west of Brisbane), the gathering will begin at 6PM on the Friday but we encourage you to take a half-day off work to allow you to arrive in plenty of time. Campers may like to arrive earlier, so that they are not setting up in the dark. BedRock runs until 2PM Sunday (or 2PM Monday for those men able to take Monday off.) With only 5 workshops, this weekend will open the eyes of new men to the possibilities and promises of personal change. For established men, the weekend will focus your service as a mentor and allow you time to be present as that service develops.
The gathering will be fully catered for a maximum of 50 men.
Extend your BedRock weekend
BedRock is faced with the choice of offering a two-day retreat which men can more easily attend, or a three-day retreat which allows the gathering to go deeper but only if men can take Monday off.
This year we are offering the third day as a “ticket extra”. Your ticket buys you registration and catering for the weekend from Friday night through to Sunday 2PM. For an extra $36 you are invited to remain at BedRock until 2PM Monday. Look for this ticket option when you book.
