January 14th – 17th, 2021

at Lifebridge Sanctuary

Rosendale, NY


Join us for our highly anticipated and regarded annual winter Men’s Retreat.

Our Soul Tavern gathering takes place within a peaceful winter sanctuary, in a warm and beautiful retreat building consciously designed for the specific type of communal gathering we are hosting.

Rest, restore and engage with men capable of being heartfelt and real, who aim to balance being in their depths with being light-hearted and fun.


What is Enlivening & Renewing About Our Men’s Retreat

  • Our format is Inter-Generational in intention and design.

We attract three different generations of men to this retreat – elders, mid-lifers, and those still getting established on their adult life path.  We meet both separately and together, learning from one another, challenging and inspiring one another, and being open and honest with what is most real for our current stage of life.

  • The themes we discuss are rich, relevant and meaningful.
  • The men who attend this type of retreat are willing to go deep and are capable of being real. 
  • The ways we interact with one another are direct, compassionate, thoughtful –   the way we practice revealing ourselves is both caring and daring.
  • Read about more specific details about the retreat structure and the types of men who attend this type of retreat.

  • Read more about our beautiful retreat setting, and read about our way of using our time and space at the Lifebridge Sanctuary.

  • Read about all you need to know to prepare yourself for our Men’s Soul Tavern Winter Retreat in upstate New York.

Among strong men in the tavern,

I can speak a truth no one will laugh at:

My heart is like a wild alley cat in heat.

In every possible way I conspire to know freedom and Love.

Forget about the common reason, for it only enslaves.

There is something holy deep inside you

That is so ardent and awake,

That needs to lie down naked next to God. 

– Hafiz


Creating Space For Restoration, Reconnection & Renewal

Our Soul Tavern Retreat for Ordinary Heroes provides us with a space to renew intentions that bring us more fully alive and re-activate our capacity to make ourselves useful in our world.  We do this by coming towards our aliveness in joyful and satisfying ways while being a kindred part of a rich community presence and spirit.

In this type of tavern, we work and play to tap the soul-inspiring ‘Presence’ that wants to shine through our personhood.  No matter how accomplished we feel our lives to be, or how much we may feel a chronic sense of failure thus far… we all need times of renewal that set the stage for the next phase of development that vitalizes our personal and worldly involvements.

Our days will call us together in body energy practices, meditations, nature immersions, stories and teachings on the dynamics of full living, and community councils that invite our soul to envision and our personality release whatever doubts and resistances it needs to leave behind.


Our evenings draw us together around the ceremonial arts that highlight the power of music, song, story-telling, and poetry to rekindle the soul’s fire.

All the while, we expect to be wrapped in the crystalline simplicity and renewing silence of the purifying winter landscape of our Lifebridge Sanctuary retreat grounds.

We will bring all we carry on our hearts to the table

So that we can embrace the ‘as-yet-unknown’

waiting to reveal itself to each of us.

We will co-create this happening as a memorable 

beginning to a renewing focus on the year to come.


Retreat Begins Promptly at 6:00 pm on Thursday, January 14th.

Retreat ends at Noon on Sunday, January 17th.
