The Lodge for Dads is a small, online gathering of committed fathers who share a desire to teach what we preach, to walk our talk, to role model the world we wish to nurture into being, starting at home, with our children. There will soon be a group for parents.
This is for those of you who are ready to make a committment to a one-on-one transformational experience of creating a healthier home environment blessed by joy, creativity, resourcefullness, resilience, fulfillment and sense of belonging.
Welcome to take your prescription of the D-pill, a Dad-vitamin to boost your paternal health, shake loose some of the stiffness that settles into our families one way or another, and invite more creativity and vitality into your kinship bonds.
This is not a time to present problems and hunt for solutions–you likely have ways to do that already–and on our best days we both know that life is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to be lived.
This is a time to open up to the greater mystery of being a father, and to search in the unknown for the surprising ingredient that brings you and your child greater expansiveness.
Come join me for a single 50-minute session of improvisation, creativity and possible absurdity to aerate the soil of fatherhood. Drop me an email when you’re ready to take your pill, and together we’ll find the right time to get started.
In this annual gathering of at most six families, we spend five days together on our farm here on the west coast of Sweden. It’s a time of play, deep nature immersion, exploring the sea, gathering around the fire, remembering, sharing songs, stories and laughter.
