    Spring Elder Gathering

    All day

    April 6 – April 8
    Spring Elder Gathering

    Trinity Center, Pine Knoll Shores, NC
    Sponsored by the Elders of the Greater Carolina Area of the ManKind Project

    This event is open to men of all ages, MKP-initiated or not.
    The theme for the weekend experience is “Joy and Compassion.” Of course, compassion starts with self-compassion – taking care of yourself. Here is a golden opportunity to join together with friends, old and new, to once again find your true self in a quiet and vibrant beach setting.  There will be a mix of deep, meaningful workshops with optional joyful breakout sessions.
