The Authentic Man Retreat - June 2019



June 21-23, 2019 at Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center in Carefree, Arizona

Men! You are invited to participate in a powerful weekend Men’s Retreat led by Jere Friedman. You will be part of a select group of highly motivated and successful men who will explore what it means to fully live as a “man” in today’s world at all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. As a participant in this retreat, you will have an opportunity to deepen your connection with your “Authentic Self” as you move forward on your life’s journey. With Jere as the retreat facilitator, you will share your own life experiences and wisdom while receiving the same from the other men in the group. You’ll have fun, create strong connections with like-minded men, and develop an even more meaningful relationship with Spirit, Self, and the world at large than what you already experience.

Discussion topics and activities will include:

  • Who am I as a man? What does it mean to be a “man” in today’s world?
  • What is “masculinity?” How can I express my masculinity in an appropriate manner?
  • Finding purpose and fulfillment – what do I really want to create in life?
  • Using heart-centered communication skills to create and nourish healthy, rewarding relationships
  • Exploring vulnerability as a gateway to strength and resilience
  • Summer Solstice Ceremony with gongbath
  • And much more!

Deliverables will include:

  • Greater clarity of your Self and your role as a “man” in today’s world
  • Strategies, life leadership tools, and wisdom teachings that will support you in leading a more “fulfilled” life
  • Commitment to at least one small action step that will help you integrate your retreat experience into your daily life

PLUS: Follow-up Coaching Session: In addition to the retreat weekend, each participant will receive one free 90-minute follow-up coaching session with Jere (a $500 value). In this session, you will have the opportunity to “anchor in” your “takeaways” from the retreat, review your progress with any action steps that you committed to in the retreat, dive deeper into questions and issues that you uncovered in the retreat, and receive support on moving forward and integrating your retreat experience into your daily life.
