The Male Journey
Welcome to MALEs UK, the British section of Men As Learners and Elders.
MALEs was set up by Richard Rohr to embody his writings on male spirituality - primarily through the Men's Rites of Passage.
Here in the UK we help men to experience their male spirtuality through a number local groups throughout the country. We aim to deliver the Men's Rites of Passage every year, and to walk alongside initiated men as they continue their Journey of Illumination.
Meeting in local groups and sitting in a circle of men as brothers is a key part of menswork. Groups meet at many locations around the UK. Most meet monthly on a weekday evening and often use some form of sharing circle as the main way of being.
If there is not a group in your area, then we'd love to help you set a group up.
Details of the current local groups can be found here
Rites of Passage

The MROP 2013 will be taking place in Perth, Scotland Wednesday 24th - Sunday 28th July 2013. Click here to find out more. If you want to tell someone about the Rites then give them the easy-to-remember web address www.mrop.org.uk which will take them to the correct page on this website.
Journey of Illumination
The Journey of Illumination (JoI) is there to support and gently challenge Initiated Men to take their journey further. Often, after the Rites there is a feeling that a man wants to put this experience into action, or needs some support. The JoI is a program of mentoring and accompaniment in our continuing journey.
