About the event

We're looking for a few brave, intentional & adventurous men… 

If you feel right now that life is “just OK” – but you know there’s something missing, nagging at you at the back of your mind…   

If you feel bored with life – and are craving a new sense of purpose, passion & fulfilment in your life… that maybe you haven’t felt in years…   

If you want to connect to your Highest Self; feel truly alive again; and experience more joy,  peace,  freedom & abundance with more clarity of purpose… 

This half-day workshop in the wilderness is for you.

Through a series of exercises, reflection and discussion, Mazie and Bill will guide you toward new insights into the nature of being and how you relate to others in the world.

By the end of this mini-retreat, you will gain skills to:

  - Connect to who you authentically are   

  - Develop a deeper sense of being beyond your outer image   

  - Enjoy a profound sense of connection and reverence to yourself, others, and nature

  - Reveal insights into the next steps of your life

Activities include:

 - Fire Challenge: just you, nature and one match

 - Sit Spot Challenge: you’ll be challenged and primed to go DEEP – in fact to reconnect with the deepest parts of yourself… that perhaps you haven’t touched base with since childhood…  

 - Community Chili Celebration:  break bread with a community of like-minded men sharing a deep sense of brotherhood, wisdom, laughter and support.

Cost: $99

Limited to ONLY 11 participants!
