At this year’s conference we will work together to create a genuine homecoming for troops and veterans, rites of passage for all men no matter what our histories, and reconciliation between veteran and civilian men.

We were pleased to welcome Ed Tick to this conference for the first time in 2011. Ed has been working for veterans for over 30 years, pioneering the psycho-spiritual restoration and healing of the warrior. He is director of Soldier’s Heart and author of War and the Soul. Continue reading

Testimonial from Paul Bendix

Moonrise on Sturgeon LakeNever mind my wheelchair and the 3000-mile round trip from San Francisco – it’s worth it to spend five days with Robert Bly and his circle of artists and thinkers.  I always return from the Minnesota Men’s Conference more in touch with myself and the baffling world.

Men’s Conference Testimonial, by Bucky H

I remember what my life was like before I first attended the Minnesota Men’s Conference. I was pretty dependent and was rather insecure. After I went to the Minnesota Men’s Conference, I was a different person. With the guidance of the teachers that were present at the conference and some of the other great men that were attending the conference that year, I began a journey of change.Here I am, nearly a year after the conference and the progress that I have made is astonishing to me. I am fourteen and have two jobs and feel way more independant. I feel so much more comfortable with putting my self out there in the world and much of this is due to the guidance and extraordinary experience at this conference. If you are in your early teens and feel somehow lost or are not quite sure how you want to grow into a man, this conference is the place for you. It will not solve all of your problems or answer all of your questions, but it will provide you with a “toolbox” to allow you to explore your manhood.

—Bucky H, age 13, who attended in 2010 with his father Sage

Men’s Conference Testimonial, by Sage Harmos

17 years now after warily going to my first Men’s Conference at camp Miller, I have enduring gratitude at the difference it has made in my life. It didn’t “fix” me or “solve” my problems. It was simply an amazing glimpse into authentic beauty in the community of men, which has encouraged and strengthened my life ever since. I am especially grateful that my son got to experience that last year. It was the most positive and enduring transformation I’ve seen in him, at a time when he needed something good the most- something I could not give him by myself.

Men’s Conference Testimonial, by Mike Pohorly

Have you ever arrived somewhere for the first time by yourself and feel immediately like you are in a group of friends? The Minnesota Men’s Conference is this type of place. When I say friends, I don’t mean people being overly friendly, trying to be nice. Here everyone is just being themselves and giving everyone else the freedom to do the same. Through-out the week it was such a relief that here are no concerned “mother-types” asking you what’s wrong if you don’t feel like talking or are feeling some sadness of a past event or just plain frozen – I felt the freedom to just feel whatever it was I was feeling. In fact if anyone wants to spend the day or even entire time there and not talk to one single person there is freedom to do that as well. Or if you want to share your experiences, there will be plenty of people to do that with as well. There are no obligations. Continue reading
