AWAKEN! Back to the Source
AWAKEN! is the leadership group of KingsMen. All men involved in organising and helping during KingsMen activities are part of this AWAKEN! group. Within the AWAKEN! group we wake up our leadership potential. We challenge each other to get the best out of who we are and we build on long lasting friendships. And most importantly, we build together on KingsMen so that other men can live what we live, can enjoy what we enjoy and can be challenged as we are challenged.
To join the AWAKEN! activities you would already be part of the AWAKEN! group or you may have a specific reason to participate and will have discussed this with the KingsMen responsible.
Back to the Source
I this Awaken! activity we go Back to the Source! We go back to the place where KingsMen is born, the Abbey of Saint Martin du Canigou. Back to the community that lives there and with whom we feel a strong connection. Moreover, we go back to the principles of KingsMen that help us to become the Men that we really are and above all back to God who is the source of us all.
Our starting point is the more than 1000 year old abbey of Saint Martin du Canigou in Casteil (France), which is inhabited by a young religious community “Les Béatitudes”. They live off donations from, among others, the more than 10,000 tourists they receive each year in this special place. Furthermore, their life consists of prayer. For this, they meet three times a day and individually spend time in silence. Our programme is adapted to the prayer times of this community.
