Return Weekend

September 28 - October 1, 2023

We shall not cease from our exploration, And the end of all our exploring, Will be to arrive where we started, And know the place for the first time. —T. S. Eliot

The Natural Passages Return weekend is a return to where we started. All graduates of the Natural Passages program are invited.

It is an exploration into the four principles of presence. The focus is to delve deeply into the relational next steps of the four-chambered heart, the four phantoms of fear and the resulting shadow behavior. Dynamic exercises will be provided to support an inward journey and then the opportunity to share these private stories with each other.

The intention of the weekend is to take advantage of the wooded area of the Pebble Ledges. We will immerse ourselves in a sweatlodge Living in tents, we will have the magic of solitude, the comfort of the surrounding forest, and the support of the community of other MoMen.

Woven into the fabric of the weekend are experiences that support personal and interpersonal explorations of who are you as a man in today’s world.


We will share tents with one or two people depending on the size of the tent. If you prefer to sleep alone and not share a tent, please bring your own tent.


Due to Covid 19, We require everyone to have a negative Covid test just prior or upon arrival at the camp. Individual efforts result in community safety.


The Return will occur September 28th. Start-up is 9:00 AM on Thursday with a brief hello and get to know each other before we build our village and homes for the weekend. One or two small villages will be created depending on how many Return.
