2015 Gatherings for Men

23nd Annual Council of Men

"The Dance of Manhood"
June 22, 23, 24
Union, Maine

The Dance of Manhood is stepping on the earth with knowing and purpose.

 A sense of knowing that a man can inject life into the world. He understands the amazing miracle and awesome responsibility of this ability. The dancer of manhood understands he is able to also take life for food and for protection.

This is why he holds a blade. A tool that cuts through the falsehoods and illusions of the world. This provides the opportunity for speaking the truth and only tolerating truthfulness from others. The blade can cut into the earth to grow plants. The blade will cut plants and trees for harvest. It can also cut into flesh for the survival of his family and community.

In the dance of manhood the dancer expresses the beauty of the Creator’s hand. The dancer also expresses his strengths and skill. Other men will see this and know him as a man. Boys will see what they need to learn to dance into the world. Women will see the man who has danced the dance of manhood and smile with satisfaction, gratitude, and respect. The new man will take his place around the council fire.

He will stand to speak to the world. He will listen to the voices of wisdom, reason, and need. With his full knowing he will honor the ancestors, share with his brothers, respect all women, and teach what he can to the young. The man who has danced the dance of manhood will not be afraid of life, truth, effort, nor death. ~ Pierre Martin Running Horse
