Greetings Wise Men,
Thank you for answering the call to gather in the wise traditions. We have provided useful information in the confirmation letter, please read it before coming to the gathering.
 
This gathering is a weekend of viewing, witnessing, and discussing the archetypes of modern masculinity. Examine your individual potential, and explore the terrain where your shortfalls lie. Together, the group will decide how and what we want to tackle in our time together. We have a number of interesting presenters who can share their knowledge and talents with us, but more importantly we intend to explore our individual capacities, and how they can honour each other. No one will dictate our itinerary but us. You can choose to be involved, or spend time to yourself. 
Please email our team with any questions that arise: connect@wisegatherings.com

Snakes are a reality of Australian bushland. The venue advises that all attendees wear shoes for your own safety. 


ELECTRONICS USE
From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the cultivation of face to face community. So that all of us can enjoy this experience free from the interruptions of phone calls and distraction from texts, tweets, and emails, we ask that the use of mobile devices be limited throughout the conference. You will be asked to silence and turn off the vibration on your device (e.g. airplane mode) when you arrive.  Of course you can use your phone as a clock.
 
 

SMOKING
Please be considerate of others. There is no smoking in the activities or conversation circles. If you need to duck away for a cigarette, be sure to let someone know. 
ALCOHOL AND DRUGS
We have a policy of respect for the land, ourselves and each other. Alcohol is allowed but drunkeness will not be tolerated.
