Speak what's in your heart

Be yourself in a community of grounded, sincere men

Join Jeannie and friends for a 6-day wilderness immersion in a forested canyon in the Rocky Mountains outside Estes Park, Colorado from Monday, July 18 - Sunday, July 24. Enjoy meetings in our large tent with breeze and birdsong, camping, wood-chopping, singing, exploring, Aikido sword, hiking and resting, and great food. Retreat from the grind away from the forces of everyday life in the matrix, and enter a safe, kind, heart-centered, male-friendly space where you can explore the man you ARE instead of the one the man-code says you're supposed to be.

Discovery, healing, grounding, deepening in presence, armor-softening, fellowship, laughter, tears, building sturdy support for your open heart, and the exploration of the collective masculine heart are some of the potential fruits of our time together.

Join us to:

  • experience the power of grounded Being as a support for open-heartedness
  • explore the embodiment of openness through the yang of sovereignty and self-advocacy
  • experience a kind of bonding with men you may never have before, without the power dynamics that usually define interactions between men
  • discover that the source of your true power as a man is authenticity and vulnerability
  • experience directly the strength and solidarity that comes from a group of men coming together to reclaim their innate goodness
  • discover your own unique flavor of male-heartedness, which needs not fit any cultural norm

This is a "roughing it" event in a wooded canyon with no facilities but the ones we construct. We'll enjoy solar-heated showers, delicious meals by Steve, and sleeping in tents. Camping newbies welcome!


Standard cost:  $725.00 (food not included)

A few spots available at a reduced rate of $475.00. To be considered, please apply here no later than Monday, June 27. Please apply only if you could not do the retreat otherwise.
