Nuenen Plattegrond

Bij deze mannencirkel komen we fysiek samen rond het vuur maar het is ook een heilige ruimte, een Sacred Brotherhood, waar we met elkaar delen over onze emoties, over dat wat in ons leeft, dat wat ons uitdaagt in het leven of juist dat waar we zo trots op of dankbaar over zijn.

Dat kan gaan over je vaderschap, de relatie met je geliefde, over jouw plek innemen op je werk, over de band met je vader of misschien wel over de plek die je als man inneemt in deze wereld.

Alles is welkom!

Er wordt een veilige bedding geboden om ook vanuit kwetsbaarheid je kracht te kunnen voelen. Vanuit oordeelloosheid wordt er geluisterd en vanuit broederschap en kameraadschap zijn we bij elkaar aanwezig.

Wil jij ook de kracht van broederschap ervaren?

Meld je dan aan via een PB of een mail naar paul@firemakers.nl.

Na aanmelding ontvang je van mij de details over de locatie en hoe je er komt.

De avond wordt gefaciliteerd op basis van het kosten & donatie principe. De kosten zijn €5 en de donatie gaat naar de stichting waar het gebruikt zal worden om nog meer van dit soort evenementen voor mannen te organiseren.

Mijn naam is Paul Aretz, veertiger, man, vader, docent in het HBO en mannencoach. In 2015 kwam het mannenwerk op mijn pad en sindsdien heb ik zowel als deelnemer en als facilitator een hele reis af mogen leggen. De laatste jaren doe ik dat vanuit mijn betrokkenheid bij stichting Firemakers. Naast het jaarlijkse European Festival of Brotherhood organiseren we allerlei grotere en kleinere evenementen voor mannen.

Firemakers Support Tribe Weekend #3

Firemakers Support Tribe Weekend #3

mei 4, 10:00am - mei 5, 8:00pm

InnEssence

We come together as men. To support each other, to share our stories and make an effort to prepare the location for the upcoming festival.

This is a free weekend. You can stay for free at the inspiring retreat centre Innessence in Nederweert-Eind. You'll even get free food and drinks. In return we get your effort to make this place look better, to prepare the grounds for the festival in August.

We will use the evenings to sit around the fire, to share, make music, dance, whatever we feel like. And during the day we'll work consciously to support the location and the festival.

Expect to be outdoors. It involves going back to nature. And of course the intensity of the work may vary. There is something to do for people of all strengths and ages.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask at contact@firemakers.nl. This is also where you can apply.

European Festival of Brotherhood 11

European Festival of Brotherhood 11

aug 15, 4:00pm - aug 18, 4:00pm

InnEssence

Dear brothers, men, fathers, sons,

You are all invited from the heart to the 11th European Festival of Brotherhood, from 15 to 18 August 2024, "Your unique spiritual journey".

This festival is a celebration as much as it is a chance to find your Self. It is a new beginning, a new era. It is raw and elementary. It is about essence. It is a tough journey, creating great power and strength. All elements laid out for your rise to power within. Whatever that calls for and whatever it looks like. Rise to the occasion.

Now more than ever men need to gather. To heal the wounds of the past, to be in peace in the present and to grow to live our purpose in the future. This time calls for men to enter the space of not knowing with trust, with courage and with the understanding that embracing the now, is the only way to a better tomorrow.

The world we live in changes fast, and this era calls for men who rise up: in their mature masculinity, in their personal leadership and in their example as a role model of how we as a people can live and prosper in a way that is meaningful, sustainable and righteous.

Men heal with men. That’s why we come together as brothers. So if you long for a richer life, being closer to (your own) nature, showing up as the man you really are, celebrating the joy of being that man and growing by journeying on that path alongside your brothers, this is the place to be.

When we look at the present, at what we are struggling with within ourselves, within our community and in this world, we feel the need to grow. How do we transcend the convictions that hold us back? What is the difference between the man we have been and the man we want to be? Do we have the courage to let die what needs to die, and to be reborn into the person we are meant to be? When we know where we want to be in the future, we can start by stepping in that direction in the present.

This festival is the place to be. To grow as a man. For yourself. For your loved ones. For the world.

From 15-18 August 2024 we will gather and journey together as brothers. To be, to grow, to return to our roots, to celebrate the joy and sacredness of the Journey of the Mature Masculine.

This 11th edition will take place at InnEssence, a spiritual retreat center in the South of the Netherlands. On this amazing location you will again find ancient practices of our spiritual traditions, like sweat lodge, firewalk, drumming, haka, wood carving, sharing circles, tribal rugby, tantric dance and more.

And most of all we will journey together on the sacred path of the mature masculine.

——————————————————

Vision

The four days of the festival will be a journey in itself. A journey where no man is left behind. A journey filled with ceremonies, rituals, practices, food, brotherhood and so much more. It is an all-in experience that will strengthen you and acknowledge you. For a price you can only dream of.

This festival is brought to you by the Firemakers Foundation. Men who devote their time and energy to creating safe spaces for men to gather, heal and grow. It is not for profit, but out of SELFLESS SERVICE that they make it possible for you to go on this journey. So the price you pay only includes the actual costs of the festival. To make sure that even people with little to spend can be there.

At the end of the festival we humbly invite you to feel if you need to create a balance between what you received and what you have given. If you choose to make a donation, we will spend it on creating more of these safe spaces and inviting men who really cannot pay even for their own ticket. Because INCLUSIVENESS is also one of our key standards.

To fully underline the inclusiveness:

There are three different kinds of tickets.
- a budget ticket, for men who have only little money to spend
- a regular ticket, this covers the actual costs of the festival
- a sponsor ticket, with this you sponsor a budget ticket for those who cannot afford a ticket at all If even a budget ticket is too expensive for you, please contact us via email. We can support at least three men who cannot afford even a budget ticket. And maybe more, depending on how many sponsor tickets have been bought.

It takes courage to come forward if this is the case – we ask you to be courageous. If you really cannot afford a ticket, please contact us by mail (contact@firemakers.nl) and together we will figure out how we can make your attendance possible.

The third of our key standards is INTIMACY OVER CROWD: in order to preserve the connection between all the men who are present, we chose to limit the available tickets. We chose not to have a gathering where there are many participants who at the end haven’t even met all of the others, looked them in the eye, share a moment, a meal, a practice. We chose to make this journey as a group, and make an effort to leave no man behind.
