Dates: Friday evening, October 20 to Sunday, October 22, 2017

Location: Menucha Retreat and Conference Center, Corbett, Oregon

Our theme this year is “Resilience: Understanding it and fostering it in our everyday lives”

All of us face challenges, setbacks, and catastrophes in our lives. There is no escape. What have we, our friends, and generations before us, experiences and how have they responded? What can we learn from the hardships we have faced? How much hardship do we really bring upon ourselves vs. from the outside world? How can we develop ourselves to be maximally resilient? In this retreat we will share experiences, insights, and strategies for helping us to be strong and wise as we face – and recover from – life’s storms. We will also take time to reflect on our own state of being, and to sing, relax, and make new friends amidst the special environment of the Menucha Retreat Center overlooking the Columbia Gorge.

What is the UUFC Men’s Retreat?

The UUFC Men’s Retreat is an annual getaway for UU Men from the day-to-day demands of our busy lives. It is a time to set aside for connecting with other men in the Fellowship and for reflecting on the larger questions of life. Previous Retreat themes have included Courage, showing up for yourself and others; Body, Mind, Heart, and Spirit, exploring these dimensions of ourselves; Men in Community, building closer relationships with other men and barriers to closeness; and Honoring the Women in Our Lives, our partners, mothers, daughters, and friends.
