Illuman is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose vision is to see men transforming men and, through them, families and communities for generations to come. Our mission is to engage those seeking a life-long journey of spiritual transformation.
As we close out 2015 we want to thank you for your continued support for our men's work. While things have been quiet lately (we needed a break after Soularize), we know that we have an even bigger year planned in 2016.
This year we continued our investment in and promotion of, the Way of Council. In 2016 we hope to bring the Illuman Way of Council to a wider audience of men. We firmly believe that this communal, contemplative practice provides a container where men can communicate deeply and authentically.
In 2016, we will have more events than at any time in our history. And you can mark your alendar for another Soularize in early November followed immediately by a conference on Male Spirituality with Fr. Richard Rohr.
Thank you for joining us on this journey. We believe that in excess of 8,000 men have attended an MROP. Our goal is to increase the number of men who have access to our programs. By providing financial support, you are directly supporting efforts to extend our work.
This year we launched our "Fire-Stoker" campaign. You can give online at: http://www.illuman.org/give/ To donate by mail and learn more about the Fire Stokers Fund please Click Here. Every gift is appreciated and every gift makes a difference.
Thank you for taking time to read Drumbeat. In the year ahead, I look forward to sharing with you how our work is extending much needed sanity into the world. I would like to encourage you to read the reflection by Belden Lane - we have some incredible men in our Illuman community who are doing amazing work.
On behalf of Illuman, I wish you and yours a very joyous and peaceful Christmas.
