Crossing the Bridge - Jay Ramsay and Nick Clements Fri 06 Apr - Sun 08 Apr

  • Well-being

At a Glance

  • Rediscover and deepen your relationship with your authentic self
  • Find out where you are in your journey of change & transition that we are all in at this time
  • Discover the nurturance that comes from the company of men

Combining individual work, meditation, visualization, group discussion and ritual/ceremony, Crossing the Bridge is a rare opportunity with like-minded supportive people for you to uncover and deepen what moves you as a man to be yourself, and more than yourself in your true power and expression.

We will be working with individual biography as your own ‘timeline’, and what it means to acknowledge and transcend your own ego as you come more powerfully into your own creative being and expression—the ‘fool’ that is willing to dare and risk life’s adventure

The weekend will include time outdoors, group work and writing, drawing on Nick and Jay’s joint experience of psychotherapeutic, social and creative work over many years.

  • Family conditioning
  • The freedom to be yourself
