Dear brothers, men, fathers, sons,
You are all invited from the heart to the 9th European Festival of Brotherhood. The Journey of the Mature Masculine.
From 18-21 August 2022 we will gather and journey together as brothers. To be, to grow, to return to our roots, to celebrate the joy and sacredness of the Journey of the Mature Masculine.
And most of all we will journey together on the sacred path of the mature masculine.
This gathering is brought to you by the Firemakers Foundation. Men who devote their time and energy to creating safe spaces for men to gather, heal and grow. It is not for profit, but out of SELFLESS SERVICE that they make it possible for you to go on this journey. So the price you pay only includes the actual costs of the gathering. To make sure that even people with little to spend can be there.
There are three different kinds of tickets.
– a budget ticket, for men who have only little money to spend
– a regular ticket, this covers the actual costs of the festival
– a sponsor ticket, with this you sponsor a budget ticket for those who cannot afford a ticket at all
If even a budget ticket is too expensive for you, please contact us via email. We can support at least three men who cannot afford even a budget ticket. And maybe more, depending on how many sponsor tickets have been bought.
