Private Men's Retreat, Jan 17-19, Nevada City, CA
"The Men's Retreat gave me a visceral experience of how to be in my power, without being walked all over and without being aggressive. I've used that everywhere ever since". Matt M.
Do You Feel Like A Powerful Man In Your Life And In Your Relationship? Do you feel you have the confidence and skills to be successful in your relationships?
What does it even mean to be a Powerful Man, or "in your power?" Well, you already know what it's like when you're NOT:
We men are endowed with an innate power, given to us by birth, literally a force of nature.
Unfortunately, we've also seen this masculine force be used to cause so much violence, harm, domestic disasters, and ecological rape-and-pillage. Ever since the eruption of the #MeToo movement, the distrust of men's power and intentions is higher than ever. It seems we hear more about "toxic" masculinity than mature, nurturing, kind, powerful masculinity.
So it makes sense if you don't want to bring that force into your life or intimate relationships. Ironically, you not bringing this powerful force into your bedroom is the number one reason your partner is unhappy with you, that you don't have enough sex, and your intimacy is suffering.
If your full masculine power isn't guided by your open heart, it feels empty no matter how hard you work, and how much you accomplish.
The key to your fulfillment is connecting to your raw masculine power as well as your sensitivity, intuition, and your open heart.
To be a man in alignment and integrity with YOUR values and aspirations, while "dancing" gracefully with the other people in your life. And to connect your life force to a higher purpose, something bigger than just you.
This small-group retreat offers a way to accomplish that! So that you can move into your life and your important relationships with power, purpose, pride, and posture. So you stop mistaking yourself for Mr. Nice Guy and your partner stops mistaking you for either the "Sensitive New Age Guy"or the stonewalling Silencer! You are neither!
Together with a small band of brothers, under competent facilitation, and in tranquil, natural surroundings, you get to discover the true power of YOU as a man!
Plus, you get to take a weekend just for you, enjoying local, fresh made food, hanging out by the fire, taking walks in nature ... in other words, a really good time:)
At the Retreat, you get to practice how to:

What Other Men Have Said
"Having this deep connection with other men ... I can't even put into words how good it was for me, and how fulfilling it was to my soul." Jeremy
"It was a safe place where we could get down to it, and real and authentic. Since the retreat I’ve been living my life bigger." Robert
"I’ve become a radically stronger leader in my business and for my tribe. It’s been legendary. I point that directly to the breakthrough I had on Saturday night [at the retreat]". Barry.
"My wife said it made a difference in our relationship, and I was really pleased to hear that. She said, 'I don't know what happened to you in that workshop, but whatever it was, it was great'". Jon
"The retreat gave me a visceral experience of how to be in my masculine power without being overbearing, and without being walked all over, and without being aggressive. I have used that everywhere ever since." Matt M.
"I ran away a lot. I avoided, played games, and disconnected. I no longer fear standing in my power and speaking and acting from that place. As a matter of fact, it's the only way to manifest the life I need and want". Chris
"I learned how to stay in my power in the face of other's strong emotions, and how to ask for what I want without giving my power away. I used to avoid strong emotions from others and not ask for what I want with power. Now, I can handle strong emotions from my wife and give her more of what she needs. Also, I ask for sex more." Jonathan
"I took the energy of the experience into my core, and it comes out every time I confront my 3 main challenges of women, cigs-n-alcohol, and digital distractions, and I have more power over all (and I've been rocking on the real things I want to do like work and cooking)". Dave
"Before the retreat, I always felt weak and wishywashy. I discovered I that I can be a powerful man and still be soft and vulnerable (and I get that's what my woman want, too)." Mike
"I used to be an expert at giving my power away. But now I stand in the fire with presence and strength! I can hold on to my power, assert myself, and create strong boundaries with love". Jess
"I was skeptical about being two days with a group of men to "reclaim my power". But it was safe, enlightening, and a personal breakthrough to trust, and feel trusted by, a group of men". Will
"I got that my power is available to me in every moment. It doesn't need to be violent. There are many levels of power and we practiced them many times. I'm ready for the real world tests!" B. B.
