The Samson Society's
October 14-16, 2022
Join us October 14-16, 2022, at Forterocca near the French border, and approximately 45 minutes from Turin International Airport, for a weekend of connection and communion in a beautiful Italian setting that blends together the charm of the valleys with their important history and the hospitality of the present.
MEN'S RETREAT DETAILS
Do you sometimes find yourself acting or reacting in immature ways? Does conflict with your partner sometimes degenerate into childish language or behavior? In this retreat, Nate Larkin and Kaka Ray will explore what it takes to "grow up" into free and fully integrated adulthood, capable of connecting deeply with another person.
The retreat fee covers lodging and meals for the weekend, as well as access to the presenters and workshops. An Italian interpreter will be present.
With no-holds-barred honesty and poignant storytelling, Nate Larkin introduces a model of community and friendship that is reinvigorating men's ministry. Too many men see the biblical hero Samson as their model for manhood--a rugged individualist of the highest order. Yet, Samson's solitary successes were eventually overcome by moral weaknesses. Nate, through the story of his own past and the stories of those in The Samson Society, offers a radical, refreshing alternative.
Recovery is a spiritual process, but not JUST a spiritual process. Although it does begin with confession and repentance, recovery is actually a HEALING process involving the progressive retraining of a brain that has developed maladaptive strategies for dealing with abuse or neglect. During this retreat, Kaka Ray will break down the neurology of compulsive behavior and offers practical ways to facilitate the healing process.
