A Message from your Operating Committee:


Your committee met to recognize that there was not sufficient interest in leadership to sustain a 28th annual gathering.  We have canceled our reservations are Camp Aldersgate.  We have taken the remaining funds in our treasury and disbursed those funds among remaining gatherings in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maine.    This has been a tough but necessary decision, with the OC expressing its sincere hopes that the strivings of the RIMG will find other voices for  expression and learning.  HO.

What happens at RIMG?

Opening and closing circles are two of the most important parts of the weekend. Opening circle, held after a light dinner on Friday, is an opportunity for participants to introduce themselves and share what they wish to get out of the gathering. The closing circle, held before lunch on Sunday, is a chance for each man to speak about what the weekend has meant to him. Many men feel the circles are the most moving parts of the experience. The weekend begins with check-in on Friday at 5:00 PM and ends Sunday after lunch. While the schedule is full of workshops, socializing, discussion, and entertainment, men can choose to spend time just sitting around the fireplace relaxing.
