Tasmanian Men’s Gathering 2015
March 6th–9th, 2015, Labour Day long weekend, Waddamanna Tasmania
Join us at the 18th Tasmanian Men’s Gathering over the March 2015 long weekend
TasMen Inc. is a long-running, voluntary organisation whose purpose is to support and encourage men through life’s journey.
Our key event is the annual Men’s Gathering held in late Summer, when we undertake an intensive long weekend of experiential learning, fellowship, sharing, music and laughter.
Supported by a trained Care Team and led by each year’s Leadership Team, we use tribal group work, group exercises, experiential learning and rites. We dig deep and explore that year’s theme at many levels. Each year is different in many ways yet consistent in heart and spirit. The event attracts some 50 – 80 men from all over Australia.
Accommodation is bunkhouse style, with camping available on-site. The food is plentiful, catering for all preferences.
The Gathering is held in a hidden, beautiful valley, some 90 minutes out of Hobart, adjacent to the historic Waddamana Hydro-electric ‘workers village’.
Our main gathering space is the TasMen large circular tent sup-ported by 4 towering posts. It seats 70 in a circle. This is our sacred space. This is where magic happens.
The Gathering is a safe vessel. Each year, men come from across Australia to experience its intensity, rawness, experiential and creative nature. It is a collective experience, which may be both edgy and challenging.
Over 17 years, there are men who have never missed a gathering, who treasure their deep friendships and national connections. The TasMen gathering particularly welcomes new men and embraces the fullness of male diversity.
This years theme is Coming Home. A weekend full of suprises. Join us on the adventure of discovering what it means to come home.
