Journey Into Manhood is a 48-hour immersion in cathartic self-discovery and emotional-healing work for men who are self-motivated and serious about resolving unwanted homosexual attractions. It is designed specifically for men who believe that their homosexual attractions are not "inborn" but stem largely from unhealed emotional wounds and unmet needs.
Journey Into Manhood is an experiential-learning weekend. We create opportunities for you to experience healing, not just learn about it.
The exercises are designed to help you identify and process the underlying issues that may be alienating you from your authentic heterosexual masculinity - and, ideally, to help you experience a deep emotional breakthrough.
Each weekend is peer-led by about 20 staff volunteers, including men who have resolved homosexuality themselves.
What Does The Fee Cover?
The cost is US$650, which covers:
the complete program (25 hours of training and experiential "processing")
take-home materials (summary booklet and audio CD summarizing key teachings)
two nights' lodging at the camp/retreat center
four weekly follow-up coaching group calls to help you further process and integrate your experience in the following weeks
and, if you are married, one free group coaching call for your wife while you are away at Journey Into Manhood. Led by the wife of a past participant, the call will help your wife better understand your experience, anticipate its potential impact, and process her feelings about what you are both going through.
What Happens After the Weekend?
After the weekend, you'll be invited to participate in four weekly follow-up coaching group calls to help you further process and integrate your experience in the following weeks.
You'll also be invited to participate in email groups and periodic in-person reunions (and, in some areas, ongoing in-person support groups).
You'll belong to a growing international brotherhood of men who have experienced this powerful program and who support and encourage each other in living its principles as they journey together out of unwanted same-sex attractions.
"The Journey into Manhood weekend has becomean essential part of helping men with unwanted same-sex attraction to access their true heterosexual nature. We encourage our clients to experience the JiM weekend as a powerful dimension in their healing process. The psychodynamic principles that underlie the JiM weekend are completely in accord with reparative therapy."

"Courage regards Journey Into Manhood as a powerful resource to help men develop their full sense of manhood - a resource that complements the work of Courage in many respects."
-- Father John F. Harvey,OSFS, Founder of Courage International, an apostolate of the Roman Catholic Church.
"Journey Into Manhood can transform a man's life. It is one of the best programs out there enabling men to confront their pain and walk through their fear. Men go into the weekend lonely and isolated and emerge bonded with a community of like-minded brothers on a journey to wholeness."
-- Arthur Goldberg, JD,
Co-founder / co-director of JONAH - Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality.
"I've observed Journey Into Manhood to be a very professionally run, safe weekend that is based on proven techniques. I have witnessed the significant change that the weekend has brought about in the lives of men I know."
