Men as Lovers (In Relationship to the Feminine)
Saturday, April 29, 2023 (9:00 AM – 3:00 PM)
Carmelite Spiritual Center hosting a program for All Men, sponsored by Illuman of Illinois

Presentors:  Bill McElroy and Ramirio de La Garza

The Lover Archetype is often difficult for men to come to terms with.  How do we balance the feminine and masculine elements of our being?

As men we are sometimes unaware of how our indifference, blind sexism, and insecure or toxic masculinity, hurts or dishonors the women in our lives.  Some of it happen consciously, while at other times, it is unconcious – totally beneath our level of awareness.

Illuman of Illinois will host a day of reflection and sharing on April 29th at the Carmelite Spiritual Center.  The first half of the day will offer reflections on the Lover Archetype in our lives.  Then we will explore how masculine and feminine embodiment are diving expressions of a Loving God.  We say “Yes” to male and female incarnation.

In the second half of the day, we have invited a panel of women from the community to reflect on their experiences of men in their lives – from childhood, family, marriage, professional or social circles.  This will be a unique opportunity to hear an unfettered engagement with the masculine from the feminine perspective.

Join us as we delve into this engagement with the feminine and masculine and, in doing so, move toward wholeness in our understanding of the divine mystery encompassed in all of humanity.


$65 per person – Includes a light breakfast, and lunch.
