Dear Facilitator,

We would like to invite you to submit your workshop/ facilitation to the upcoming Menergy 2015
scheduled for the weekend of Thursday 15th Sunday 18th 2015 in Licola Retreat, Licola Victoria.
You have been forwarded this application because other men have acknowledged your work around
mens health and wellbeing and we feel your involvement would be of great value to the success of
the event and to the men attending.
At this stage we cannot confirm your submission will be successful but we ask that you consider
completing an application by clicking the link below and registering your interest.

What is Menergy
Menergy is a gathering of men held over a 3 night 3 day weekend of October 15th - 18th 2015 where
facilitated workshops and organised rituals help foster a sense of wellbeing, acceptance and
brotherhood for men needing to associate with likeminded males.
The event is part of a larger organisation called Mens Wellbeing, which has been in existence for
over 15 years and has managed dozens of Mens health and wellbeing facilitated retreats.

Menergy 2015 theme - Into the Heart


Each year there is a new theme for the gathering and this year is journey of going into the Heart.
How mens truth, wisdom and courage come from acting, speaking, and taking guidance from their
heart.
In todays culture men have been socially conditioned to not speak their truth and not share from
their heart, as its considered unmanly. Too often we are conditioned to speak from our minds and
intellect and shun our emotions and heartfelt desires. Into the heart is about allowing men to gain
access and find trust and support amongst other men to open into their hearts wisdom.
We invite you to shape your workshop with the concept of Into the heart and how your unique
offering can complement this theme.

Workshop Proposal
The committee invites workshop facilitators to be courageous, innovative and edgy to bring support
to the theme: Into the Heart The sub-themes or areas of work outlined above are intended to
inspire, not to limit the workshop proposals. We also encourage you to put forward proposals that
stretch and deeply challenge experienced men who may have attended several gatherings in the
past.
With regard to workshop design we ask facilitators to be:

mindful how you can create depth for men who seek that level of personal enquiry, yet
maintain emotional safety for men who are more challenged by the work

courageous and create experiences and opportunities to awaken men who are open to
these energies and to have authentic conversations on these subjects

mindful of any physical safety issues and to discuss with the committee any risks you may
envisage with your proposal

aware the gathering is scheduled for spring, so please be conscious of the weather
dependant nature of your workshop and advise what facilities you may need

The committees decision on which workshop proposals are accepted into the gatherings program is
not a reflection on the inherent quality of a proposal. The committee will endeavour to:

choose from a breadth of topics, modalities and outcomes

choose workshops that invite men to ask them to journey Into the Heart regardless of
what area of work is proposed

incorporate fresh content

offer a variety of levels for personal development work; i.e. workshops that allow for
comfortable entry points for new men through to more profound work for those men
looking to challenge themselves more deeply

Regardless of the outcome of your workshop proposal we strongly encourage you to attend the
gathering. Your deep experience, wisdom and energy are of great value to the gathering and for all
men present.

Returning facilitators:
We value and welcome returning facilitators to Menergy 2015 and we also hope to attract new
facilitators and ask that you extend this invitation to anyone you believe has something of benefit
for the gathering.
If you wish to repeat a workshop from earlier gatherings, we encourage you to look for new and
challenging ways to grow your workshop to fit this years theme. We understand that some
workshops are timeless; and in these cases we simply ask that you present your workshop with your
usual clear, conscious intention, energy and focus.
