Event Details

MenLiving Announces Another Groundbreaking Event!!

Yes, the rumors are true.   MenLiving is officially announcing the Western Advance.   For those of you familiar with ML’s Advance in Wisconsin, this is going to be a similar event in terms of programming, although it will be held in the beautiful climate of Scottsdale, Arizona. For those of you unfamiliar with the MenLiving Advance, each year we take time out of our busy schedules to reconnect — with ourselves, with one another and with nature. We create a space that fosters authentic conversations, personal discovery, youthful play and deep connection in order to further the mission of MenLiving and continue building community.   This Advance will have some similarities to the one in Wisconsin, but there will also be some new and interesting wrinkles to the Western Advance to take advantage of the climate and the location.

We expect this weekend to deliver:

Mindful connection to nature

Empowering your potential

Nurturing play

Learning effective communication

Identifying, locating, and expressing emotions

Visioning of where you want to go in your life

Integrating mind, body, and spirit

Navigating life’s challenges with resilience

Growing in deep connection with others

The outstanding leadership team for the 2023 MenLiving Western Advance will be Mike Patterson and Jason Samatas.   Mike and Jason have extensive leadership experience and history, and look forward to working with a small and intimate group of men to create new connections and further build on existing connections.

This event is going to be limited in the number of participants.  If you are interested, we highly advise putting a deposit down quickly to reserve your spot.
