What happens at Ignite?
We are creating a container for men to explore connection, deep sharing, and authentic vulnerability. We bring in skilled facilitators from all over the world (and locally!) to guide us on unique journeys through body, heart, mind and spirit.
The atmosphere is dynamic and full of possibility. There will be roughly 100 men at the event, so it is a great chance to meet like-minded men of all ages, races, backgrounds and body types. This is a golden opportunity to learn about yourself and how to connect with others in a sober container.
Do I need to be there the whole time?
You can buy 1-day, 2-day, or 3-day tickets. The 1 and 2 day tickets apply to any day(s) that works for your schedule. Additionally, you can come and go as you please throughout the day.
What should I bring to the festival?
You’ll want to bring:
A pair of loose/stretchy clothes for movement
Any clothes that make you feel sexy and fun
A water bottle
Optional: a journal to write in
What if I’m in a workshop and asked to do something I don’t want to do?
We create a set of 4 community guidelines at our opening ritual. One of the guidelines is around self-care. This means that you are never required to do anything that doesn’t work for your body, heart or mind. All of the facilitation is a suggestion: only you know what is appropriate for you in that moment. This means that at any point during a workshop, you can change the instructions in a way that honour your needs, choose to simply observe, or leave altogether.
What forms of payment do you accept?
To help us save on service fees, e-transfers to firstname.lastname@example.org are preferred. However, Stripe and PayPal options on the website work perfect too!
Are tickets refundable?
Tickets are refundable up until March 1st, less a $25 service fee. After that, tickets are non-refundable. However, you can transfer your ticket to a friend - just make sure to let us know!
What does “self-identified man” mean?
Masculinity and femininity are energies in the universe that some people choose to identify with. Even those who identify as “man” or “woman” are a complex interweaving of both of these energies. This weekend is both for people who identify as “men”, and others who are exploring their “masculinity”. As such, cis and trans men are both welcome, as well as folks who identify as non-binary or gender fluid. The beauty of our time together is being in a masculine container and learning to relate through that lens. There will be no policing to make sure you are “man” enough.
Is this event just for gay men?
Men of all sexualities are welcome at this event. While some of the workshops involve sexual energy, many do not. Consider this event a way to learn to relate to men in several different ways: physically, verbally, emotionally, psychologically, sensually, and perhaps sexually.
I can’t afford it! Are scholarships available?
Yes, partial scholarships are available. Scholarships are for anybody who needs them. We hope that scholarships will especially make this event more accessible to people who are underemployed, disabled, students/young, trans, or people of colour.
How can I help others attend?
Buy an extra ticket and pass it onto someone you know!
Make a donation and it will be passed on to someone who needs a scholarship. To do so, email
Is parking available?
There is unrestricted parking in the surrounding streets. However, we encourage people to use transit. Olympic Village skytrain is nearby, as are buses #9, 17, 84 & 99.
