We're a community of men transforming other men through a power greater than ourselves.
Men can speak without being judged or shamed.
Men can both speak about their emotions and be emotional.
Men can forge real and authentic relationships with other men.
Men can discuss real life challenges of the different roles we play – husband/partner, father, grandfather, provider, businessman, worker etc.
Men who participate in our work receive support as they journey through life and face some of life’s toughest challenges and transitions.
Our programs are centered in ritual experiences rather than in conceptual teachings.
Illuman creates opportunities for men that we know they can’t find on their own or anywhere else.
The Ohio Chapter of Illuman is a nonprofit organization for men who are simply interested in becoming better, more authentic men. We welcome all men to our work without regard for your ethnicity, class, education, sexual orientation, religion or any other characteristic that might make you feel excluded. Our programs and offerings focus on providing men with an opportunity to do their ‘inner work’ in the company of other men. We use ritual, teaching and ways of communicating that allow men to create an environment where men can explore what matters to them most.
