JOI

The Journey Of Illumination is a set of practices that allow us live a more conscious and connected life. 

 

 

We are men transforming men through a power greater than ourselves. Our primary concern is inner work that makes a difference in the world. We are fed by the wisdom traditions of forgiveness and radical inclusivity. Our work recovers traditional patterns of male initiation, affirms a masculine path to healing, reveals the true and false self and honours the path of descent or letting go. We do this through the power of ritual, image, story and council. 

 

These are our five touchstones:

• Centering – we are men grounded in the power of the here and now (e.g. your regular spiritual practice).

• Gathering – we are men who listen deeply to each other’s stories (e.g. your engagement in men’s groups and networks).

• Connecting – we are men who choose another to walk with – shoulder to shoulder (e.g. mentoring, coaching and spiritual guidance).

• Releasing – we are men who let go of the ways that no longer serve us (e.g. letting go, times in silence and rituals).

• Serving – we are men who honour the earth and serve the whole human community (e.g. your service to others).
