Bear Clan
Men's Scout Group

The ritual and practice of men entering the forest to re-connect with the wild,

to gather around the fire

to drum and listen into the stories

is immeasurably ancient.  

This is a Bear Clan offering.  The Bear Clan is part of the Men's Project to provide the cultural experiences and opportunities to gather, to experience rites of passage, and be supported in deciphering our personal myths and living the Medicine we bring into the world.

This is a special gathering just for men.  It's to be in council, to adventure, and nourish the wild nature within us. It's being part of a sacred camaraderie of men evolving how we show up in our lives and the world.

We gather outside around the fire.  Sometimes we trail the animals through the forest.   We weave together drumming and nature skills, storytelling and ritual to give voice to what's wanting to speak to us and through us. 


Explore The Symbolism & Myths at Play


Each outing, we circle together and through storytelling and deep inquiry we draw out the deeper understandings of the struggles, incites, and meanings within the unique landscape we are each traveling through on our individual paths.  

We explore the mythological themes surfacing in our lives along with the archetypes of the Hero's Journey as we travel through the stages of the Hero's Journey again and again. 


We allow the forest and animals to reveal signs and guidepost for us to provide reminders and direction on our present moment path.

We'll be in a council of men, giving voice to the unspoken, stirring the remembrances of our own inner knowing and truths, and together hold each other accountable for our knowing.

The Elders have shared the wilderness is where we go to stir the remembrances within us.  It's where we go to re-align with ourselves and the Spirit wanting to express through us.
