The Turtle Island Project Presents:
Grand Island Conference & Retreat Program
Turtle Island Project Free Discussion Series:
The Feminization of the Church
Male Spirituality, Creating Men’s Groups
Tuesday Oct. 23 & 30, 2007
(Marquette, Michigan) – The dynamics of male spirituality and the feminization of the church will be explored in a free discussion series later this month sponsored by the Turtle Island Project.
“King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine” will be held from 7 – 10 p.m. on Tuesdays, October 23 and 30, 2007 at the Upfront and Company restaurant in Marquette.
C.G. Jung Dr. Robert Moore

The two evenings will explore the works of Dr. Robert Moore, a Jungian analyst who is one of the founders of the men’s movement in the United States.
“This event is for those who have an interest in examining the dynamics of male spirituality, and it’s impact upon the church,” said Rev. Lynn Hubbard, director and co-founder of the non-profit Turtle Island Project (TIP) in Munising, Michigan. “One of the questions we will examine is why the church is not attracting as many men as women.”

“We will examine what can be done to attract more men to participate and enjoy faith related activities and make suggestions as to how to start a mens group within your own spiritual community,” Hubbard said. “In some congregations there is a noticeable difference in the larger number of women versus men who attend the church.”
“We will explore the feminization of the church and why fewer men are joining spiritual communities as lay persons or leaders,” Hubbard said.
The series is the second event in the Grand Island Conference and Retreat Program which recently held a Native American Roundtable and a discussion concerning Earth-based spiritualities and their contribution to contemporary religious communities.
