Spacewalks

Road

Can you picture yourself on a Spacewalk? Doesn’t this seem highly impossible and unlikely? Totally foreign? Totally frightening?

For men who really want to get off the bench, we invite you to join us for a four-part conversation where we explore 1-on-1:

– Where do we find ourselves now?

– Where are we headed?

– Where are we in need of development?

– Where are we taking action to move forward?

For many of the reasons we highlighted above, we call this series – “Spacewalks”. We admit these conversations probably look scary at first glance. Compared to an actual spacewalk though, isn’t this really more like a walk in the park?

For men who are interested to explore and go further, contact RoadtripN: www.plant12.org

Opposite World

Join the game

Do you ever find yourself just staring at the field from the bench? Do you ever find yourself wondering what it would be like if you took the leap of faith and jumped across the white line onto the playing surface? Do you ever find yourself just thinking about changing the venue of the arena or the uniform or even the sport?

Our best guess is that the answer is “NO”. Our best guess is derived from our own personal experiences of never finding ourselves by doing these things alone. Our best guess is that staring, wondering, and just thinking about doing is insufficient.

Welcome to Opposite World.

From this point moving forward, we’re going to have to sum the courage to enter into our dreams and act upon them in order that they may even possibly be realized. From this point moving forward, we’re not saying that all of our dreams will be realized. But, our best guess is that the probability of success improves greatly once we lift ourselves off the bench.

Welcome to Opposite World.

theSpace Moving West

West

The first two sites are launched and two more appear to be on the near horizon. theSpace is now open in Dallas and Denver with Albuquerque and Las Vegas upcoming.

What exactly is theSpace you may be asking? theSpace is an exploratory community of primarily men that have experience with a total change of direction in their lives and/or careers. theSpace is part support, part encouragement, part incubator, and part map room offering experience and insights while walking alongside men through these transitions.

If you are struggling to find the way right now in your career, business, family, health, or life – we invite you to check out theSpace.

Blastoff

100_2801

Blastoff for us means prayers are finally getting off the ground. Blastoff started ten years ago for us as we joined together in a far away mission field. It was here that we began to learn just how far away we were from rebuilding foundations and communities out of our past. It was here that we first caught a glimpse that we were trying to rebuild foundations and communities totally out of our minds.

Today, ten years later, what we are intent and really hope to share with others is just how we came to see the lights go on.

It has been such a wild ride just getting here. We can only imagine, as these rocket boosters kick in, the blast off is going to be even more amazing.

Launchpad

love large

This week, ten years of effort and starts and re-starts in search of a transparent liftoff find us standing on the launchpad. The invitations have gone out and the agenda is set in place. We’re in countdown mode…finally.

Now, as with any launch, we know that anything could actually happen. We could lose oxygen. We could have our suit ripped to shreds. We could fail the experiment.

Yet, we are excited as all get out to blast off. We recognize that we are now here because of nothing that we have done. If the ten years have taught us anything, they’ve taught us this.

We are hopeful men come forward and find a breath of fresh air. Owderblue is about to be realized.

Denver

Big Blue Bear

Denver is known everywhere for being wide open to experimentation. From its very earliest days, people from everywhere have come to the front range searching to go a different direction. Today is the new day to lay stake to your claim and change the course.

Cool things are happening in local small businesses throughout Denver each and everyday. For further info, check out the Cyphr space

Join along in this adventure!

Dallas

Reunion Fireworks

Dallas is busy, busy, busy at work. By most appearances, Dallas is a hub of wealth and happiness. Dig a little deeper though and men are wrestling with a level of angst over their current career and/or life. One of the richest cities on the planet also has one of the highest levels of depression and dissatisfaction.

How can this be? How can men be dissatisfied? How can men change course if need be? This is an experience that we can offer insights. We came to this fork-in-the-road intersection and knew that something had to change. Today, we share our experience of changing course and offer of assistance to help other men do the same.

Gatherings in Dallas are happening throughout 2015 and online meetings are available daily. For further info, contact RoadtripN at: www.plant12.org

We’re excited to participate in theSpace for men to change course in Dallas! We hope that you may contact us and join along in this adventure!

Glowing

Being available to our families today is such a gift. Basking in the glow that is showing love to those angels who stuck with us through thick and thin. Thankful the lights went on in our lives. Thankful for the purpose we now have to share in the rebuilding of foundations while making such good use of our past experiences.

What a design! What grace! Thank you for flooding our emptiness!

Dawn

RoadtripN Sunrise

All-in and holding nothing back, this dawning of day shouts it out loud. Awaken, there is no need to suffer any longer. The beams of brilliant light piercing out of the old rubble make clear the way is paved and passage is secure. What a sight to see refreshed down-and-outers giving themselves to the down-and-out.

Sound the trumpets. Life is coming to the emptiest of places. In plain view, the rebellion of false appearances is being offered the invitation to step out of the shadows and become transparent.

Here we go! Dawn is breaking in! Prayers for help are being answered! Time to go soaring!
