Men all over the world are awakening to a feeling of stepping into a more conscious brotherhood. As we do so, there is a need for support and connection with one another. We stand for the nourishment and support of the conscious brotherhood of the awakening man. Setting aside intentional time for practice in the support of community helps us uncover and explore various techniques and tools that support and align with the wisdom of our hearts. We believe we are all unique and that in sharing our truth in community we discover the freedom of expressing our whole selves both strong and vulnerable. We believe in supporting the expression of truth and stepping outside of our comfort zones to experience ourselves without judgement or limiting beliefs of how we can or have been allowed to be as men. We celebrate diversity and inclusivity and invite all individuals who identify as men to explore the various expressions of brotherhood and give ourselves and each other permission to shed the belief that to be a man means to exist in one way.
We aim to uplift and inspire a community of like-minded men from around the globe to connect with their bodies, move into their hearts and more fully express truth within their lives.
An ongoing, sustainable and supportive system of gatherings all over the globe that provide men the opportunity to make their vacations adventurous and meaningful explorations of this beautiful planet with the intention to provide space for inner explorations that offer peace and understanding.

We’ve all got to start somewhere. Whether you’re an experienced yogi, or just stepping onto the path, we believe in starting where you are and we will meet you there. On our retreats we welcome guys from various backgrounds and experience levels to practice together and learn about their bodies, their limitations and safely move within a practice that serves them and their individual needs.
