RIMG seeks to provide men of all ages, all orientations and from all and walks of life a chance to make connections and friends, build community and gain support from the company of other men in a safe, supportive and welcoming setting. The weekend includes a balance of workshops and opportunities for spontaneous activities, socializing, conversation, recreation, and relaxation. RIMG is facilitated and organized by a committee of volunteer participants.
Workshops are all led by RIMG participants and are offered in areas such as: personal growth and self-improvement, health and healing, arts and crafts, music and movement, poetry and writing, cooking and food, energy and the environment and other diverse areas. Every man, who wishes to share his knowledge and experience, is invited to offer a workshop. Workshop descriptions are posted on Friday evening and sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis. Other activities that may be included are: affinity groups, games, drumming circles, an afternoon hike, star gazing, and a talent show.
