                   2019 Chicago Area Men's Retreat:                                                       Male in a Whale, the Sequel

Thirteen years ago our Men's Retreat used the story of Jonah and the Whale to spark our spiritual growth, make us laugh, and gain insight into the kind of men we want to be in the world.  It is time for a return to this simple and complicated story. 
In 2019, the themes from Jonah are even more relevant.  This story invites us to think about the importance of:
  • What is good and what is bad about our anger;
  • How to find prayer and renewal time in our busy and sometimes stormy lives;
  • Actions and decisions that move us toward God rather than away from God;
  • How to relate positively with people who have different views or perspectives than us 
All this and more is embedded in this short story from the Old Testament.  As with all Lumunos men's retreats, you can also expect good food, lots of laughter, and the magic that happens when you jump off the hamster wheel for a few days.  Join us at the Men's Retreat, where you can expect:
  • a relaxing time with no pressures in a beautiful setting; 
  • meeting a great group of guys from around the Chicago area;
  • an opportunity to talk about what matters most to you;
  • a dynamic interaction between our lives and a Biblical story;
  • a chance to grow and deepen your spiritual life;
  • great food and a lot of laughter.
If you attended the retreat 13 years ago, 1) You have forgotten everything about it, and 2)  This will be an all new design.  Timeless story, relevant issues, and clarity about next steps.  Hope you can join us!

Co Facilitators:  Brian Madvig, Director of Clinical Services at Arbor Associates and Doug Wysockey-Johnson, Executive Director of Lumunos.  Music will be provided by Joel Brand and Friends.

Take a time out.  Hang with the guys.  
Get some perspective.

Please consider registering soon! There are a limited number of rooms and early registration is enormously helpful in our planning.
