Men's Rites of Passage
MEN'S RITES OF PASSAGE
What are the Men's Rites of Passage?
A 5 day life changing program for men devised by Richard Rohr OFM which has been undertaken by over 5000 men across the world.
This is not about religion, but about spirituality. About age-old traditions that guide men into manhood. About coming to trust that there is something much greater at work in your life than you could ever imagine. Taking you sometimes OUT of your comfort zones, but more deeply back into your own life.
When and where are they happening?
The 2013 Rites are happening Wed 24th - Sun 28th July 2013 at The Bield, nr Perth, Scotland. PH1 1PY.

How much will it cost?
We endeavour to keep our costs down as much as we are able (none of the Elders are paid) while also trying to allow for the fact that men from all walks of life are welcome to undertake the Rites.
- The standard price for the Rites is £365 - this is around our breakeven cost and is only kept this low because the team of some 14 men give their time voluntarily.
- If you are unwaged or in difficult financial circumstances please contact us to find out how we can help to reduce your costs from our bursary fund.
We also endeavour to run a car pooling scheme among the men undertaking the Rites to both save costs and to be environmentally sensitive.
How do I get there?
You need to arrive at The Bield between 2pm and 3:30pm on the 24th July. You will be ready to leave The Bield no later than 4pm on Sunday 28th July. The Bield is a short bus journey from Perth railway station and there are public transport options from Edinburgh airport - you can find out the full details of all your options clicking here to a PDF file in a new window - you can either save it to your computer or print it out. If you are not using public transport then we do encourage you to sign up to our car sharing list to reduce our environmental impact.
Where will I be staying?
You will need to bring a tent and sleeping bag etc. All your meals are provided so you will not need cooking equipment.
If you are unable to camp for medical reasons then there is limited indoor accommodation available which is at a further cost of £100.
