Sadly, Menergy is done for 2013. Join us in 2014 over 31 Oct–3 Nov!
Children know that treasures lie deep in caves guarded by dragons. Later, those dragons become mortgages, work commitments and domestic duties; every bit as good at keeping us from the treasure buried within.
Menergy 2013 calls you to continue the journey and discover what it takes to gain intimacy, success, satisfaction and the path to your own treasures within.
We're all on a journey, but where are we going? Menergy 2013 wants you to journey into the deep—into your self, closer to your loved-ones, and deeper into your sense of meaning.
In this age of technology, time spent face-to-face speaking honestly is precious indeed. Menergy is a gathering for men to be with men, to share stories, to listen and learn, and to be ourselves with others.
We reckon you've got something valuable to contribute because your journey is unique, just as your skills and knowledge are unique. At the same time, you might find when you hear other men's stories that you're not so different! Menergy is about sharing time and space with other men and feeling connected. Every man has something to offer and to gain from this weekend.
This three-day gathering lets you participate in activities, workshops and discussions relevant to manhood - a time to reflect on the journey past, present and future, and a chance to hear others’ experiences.
You are invited to be a part of the richness that arises when men gather in an intentional space of respect, gratitude and fellowship, and bring more of yourself to life.
Where: Grantville Lodge near Phillip Island
Who attends a Men's Gathering?
Men from 18 to 80+ from all walks of life, careers and social gathering. We find there is no typical attendee. What we do find is that men who attend are usually seeking a better way to define themselves and a better way to live their lives. Manhood is open to all men from any background, religious, political or sexual persuasion. We encourage freedom for men to be real with themselves and other men.

About the Organisers
Our volunteers bring together many years experience from men's gatherings around Australia. With the backing of Mens Wellbeing, they are proud to bring Open Ground men's gathering to Victoria.
Young men (under 18)
If you wish to invite your son, or a young man you are mentoring, to Menergy you must consult the Organising Committee as there are strict conditions on the attendance of young men. A fee of $150 applies to young men who are accepted for attendance. Contact Peter on 0431 259 990.
A limited number of subsidised places are available from the donations made by the other men attending Menergy. If you would not be able to attend Menergy without support, up to half of your registration fee can be subsidised this way. Subsidised men repay the gathering by helping set-up on Friday, pack-up on Monday afternoon, and in the kitchen throughout the weekend. In the event applications exceed donations, subsidies will be awarded in order of need. Please call Peter on 0431 259 990.
This travel option matches up men travelling from nearby suburbs. Sharing a lift is a wonderful, gentle way to begin your gathering weekend.
