Men's Rites of Passage 'MROP'

Men's Rites of Passage

MROP is a five-day/ four night deeply prayerful and soulful experience that builds on the classic patterns of male initiation through simple and moving rituals and teaching.

Each day includes group prayer, major teaching on central masculine spirituality themes, quiet time for reflection, and sharing in the context of a “small group”.

This is not about religion but about spirituality, about age old traditions that guide us into manhood, about coming to trust that there is something much greater at work in our lives than we could ever imagine.

MROP is facilitated by Centre for Men Australia and is proudly supported by menALIVE.

Men are asked to come with a willingness to participate from beginning to end and not as an observer. All participants begin at point zero with no agendas to live up to or down to. All that is required is for a man to come with a ˜beginners mind" and the readiness of a young novice seeking wisdom. Ultimately, initiation, like itself, is not a spectator sport.
