Lightning-Bark Words From the Cave of Cesh Corran:
An Evening with Martin Shaw and Jay Leeming
For one night only we are proud to present an evening with UK storyteller Martin Shaw and poet Jay Leeming. This is a rallying call for all vagabonds, brigands and piratical nomads to gather for a night of rousing Gaelic story and electifying poetry. Once present we will light fires, rub shoulders and feed the horses for the ride up to our home of delightful wildness, The Minnesota Mens Conference. Please join us at your rightful place by the fire.

The Minnesota Mens Conference was started by Robert Bly in 1984. This was shortly after the interview between Keith Thompson and Robert Bly called What do Men Really Want? This first conference, as well as all the ones following have included the telling of old stories, the gifts of poetry, making music together and opening our hearts to grief, which sometimes appears when men who trust each other gather together for a few days.
This conference has been blessed with many fine teachers such as Etheridge Knight, James Hillman, Michael Meade, and Terry Dobson in the 1980’s. Aaron Kipnis, John Lee and Robert Moore joined us in the 1990’s. In 1993 with the addition of Malidoma Somé, Miguel Rivera, Haki Madhubuti and Martín Prechtel, the conference moved towards a richer diversity of thought and a deeper connection to our ancestors. In the last few years we have begun to ask that men who have been given the honey of the old stories and soul teaching give some of this sweetness back to younger men. So again we are inviting 30 young men between the ages of 13 and 20 to attend this years conference.
We are asking all the men to reach back toward young men-both the fathered and the fatherlessand to work out rituals and ways of communication in order to offer to the younger men what the culture as whole does not.
This years conference will be held once again at Camp Miller, a beautiful YMCA camp on 100+ acres of woods, fields and waterfront,on Sturgeon Lake 100 miles north of the Twin Cities. The cabins, dining room and main meeting lodge are a combination of rustic and modern. The camp staff are superb the food is excellent and the sauna is always hot!
