Wild Heart Men's Retreat

Dates: Monday August 26 - Sunday, September 1
Location: A forested retreat center, northern New Mexico


Experience the call of your wild heart!

Join Jeannie and friends for a weeklong summer immersion at a forested retreat center in the cool of northern New Mexico from Monday, August 26 - Sunday, September 1. Enjoy meetings in a spacious yurt with breeze and birdsong, sleeping in a cabin, camper or tent, singing, exploring, hiking and resting, and great food. Retreat from everyday life and its responsibilities, and enter a kind, heart-centered, male-friendly space where you can explore your own wild heart and its grounded sovereignty and expression. Are you ready to embark on a profound journey of self discovery and authentic connection? Step into the wild beauty of northern New Mexico's forests for Jeannie Zandi's annual weeklong men's retreat. In the company of supportive men, you'll experience the power of solidarity, open-hearted living, and your true self, free from external demands. Come as you are and leave rested, enriched, and more yourself than ever before.

"We men long to unlock our inner selves. Having been to Jeannie’s retreats for men, I know that we can unleash our male hearts—and Jeannie knows the way. She holds an unparalleled, powerful and open space for men--her heartfulness for us is astonishing. You simply have to be in the room with Jeannie—time with her is worth its weight in gold. The secret to finding our true sense of manhood lies in our hearts and Jeannie’s retreat for men is a guided path to that freedom."

~Evan Winslow Smith

"Jeannie Zandi has been an incredible teacher for me over the years. She breaks me apart in the most beautiful ways. She meets me with complete compassion no matter how I show up.  With her help I have learned to love myself again. Thank you Jeannie, my masculine heart sits in profound appreciation of your luminous being."  

~Mike Kabjian


“For me, experiencing one of Jeannie’s meetings is the equivalent to receiving water after enduring days with a parched throat.  Her messages sooth, quench and get right to the point. She has a wonderful way of nudging one into presence when the mind would rather maintain control over everything related to survival.  She is a powerful conduit for those looking to connect to the divine.”

~Cajardo Lindsey

"I see Jeannie Zandi as one of the most potent transformational forces on the planet today.  She has an ability to penetrate into the interior of the human being with a depth of love, reverence, and miraculously, without the human mind's agenda to fix something that is seen as lacking.  Jeannie has a remarkable depth of wisdom not just in spirituality per se, but in how that relates to the nitty gritty interplay of yin and yang in human relationships."    

~Ken Farber


"Jeannie's genuine comprehension of men's experience, ability to reach and touch hearts, and her skill in assisting our healing in a truly unique and profound way is unsurpassed in my experience."

~Michael Hartmann


"I have been on the spiritual path for a couple decades now and have worked with many teachers, therapists and healers. During that time, I don't think I've ever experienced such a tenderly, impeccably supportive space as Jeannie holds. In the past six year with Jeannie, I have shared some very dark, raw energies and all have been met with such mercy and respect. She has invited me to slowly return from my dissociative spiritual avoidance to an heartfelt, embodied embrace and reverence for my humanity, in all its colors and flavors. The clear and clean containers and structures she creates in this work also feel deeply supportive, as I can be seen and witnessed by others in a safe way. I am truly grateful for Jeannie's work and the others who walk beside me on this beautiful journey of human embodiment."

~Ryan Brennan


"Jeannie not only deeply sees, feels, and loves men, she reveals the deepest truth of our hearts to us. Jeannie is an utterly fearless and unfailingly loving guide through the layers of our inner terrain. Sitting with Jeannie is juicy, alive, and potently transformative." 

~Adam Chacksfield
