Being A Real Man Men’s Retreat, Redefine what being a real man means for you
Join us in a day centered around building community and being the man we want to be versus the one we were told we were supposed to be.
Life is all about connection. SImply put, the more you can connect to yourelf, the more you connect to everything else: family, other men, women, your work. Through this we will connect to disconnect to reconnect…
Connect with other men in community, connect to practices of movement, meditation and reflection to Disconnect from the stories, the patterns, “supposed to’s” of society that tell who we are supposed to be, and what being a real man is supposed to look like. We do this so that we can ultimately lay the foundation to Reconnect back to ourselves
Sessions to Include:
~ Opening Circle and group connection activities and connection to self through movement practices and grounding meditation. Before we can disconnect, we need to have a foundation of connection: people, practices, rituals, routines, to support us it the work that is living life.
~ Begin to dig a little deeper and dive into the unhealthy stories around masculinity and being man that foster so much disconnection and hidden shame or that feeling of just not being comfortable being ourselves. We will use breathwork to begin and foster the emotional release of the stories. By releasing and disconnecting we can connect to our truer/higher self allowing new stories and beliefs to flow through us as we take the next step into the journey of life.
~ Understand the addictions we have to ‘try to be’ men, where they come from, and how to challenge them for a better understanding and sense of self. We will become aware of them, talk about them, share so that we can begin to feel okay, feel safe, reconnecting to ourselves and to others in an authentic, no bull shit kind of way. Let’s overcome the addiction to find this reconnection.
~ Rewriting this story the practice of Yin with a live duo of Indonesian Sound Healers.

Why We Are Here, a note from you facilitators:
Chris Walker, Lead Facilitator: I never felt like I belonged whether my gender, a man, or my race; I never felt like being me was enough. I had to be what society told me I was supposed to be, and I never felt comfortable or at peace just being me, the real man I really was on the inside. I hope that through my trials and tribulations and this work, it doesn’t have to be that hard for other men.
Guest Facilitator 1: I spent my whole life scared of men and missing out on an integral part of connecting with humanity as a result. Men need men! I need men!
Guest Facilitator 2: I was a very troubled man and have found my path to freedom by doing the deep inner work even when society was still judging men for being vulnerable. I wish the same for other men who are having troubles and don’t know what to do.
