Warrior Rites of passage

Initiations into brotherhood

Indigenous plant Medicines

Embark on a profound journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and spiritual growth, guided by the wisdom of sacred plant medicines and the ancestral knowledge of indigenous cultures. At the Heart of Man retreat, you will experience Ayahuasca, Kambo, and other sacred plant medicines native to the Amazon rainforest.

Revered for centuries by indigenous tribes, these medicines are renowned for their ability to connect people with their inner self, unveil hidden truths, and to heal the body and the spirit. In the context of a mens work, Earth medicines also act as great revealers of subconscious patterns in the masculine – showing us our deeper struggles as men, highlighting our shortcomings and personal challenges, and showing us new ways to bridge our universal nature and spiritual understanding about the universe, with a more harmonious, grounded, and service-oriented way of Being in the modern material world.

Rites Of Passage

Throughout history, cultures around the world have recognized the profound importance of Rites of Passage and initiation rituals in shaping the identity and purpose of men. These sacred practices mark pivotal transitions in life, enabling participants to let go of the past, embrace the present, and step into a new phase with clarity and intention.

The Heart of Man retreats focus on guiding men through the many significant thresholds of life using a plethora of different practices, rituals, and medicines to mimic the feeling and process of initiation. Whether it’s transitioning from adolescence to adulthood, embracing fatherhood, finding renewed purpose in midlife, or being a more grounded and polarized partner, rites of passage provide a safe and supportive context in which to explore all of the challenges and opportunities that accompany the pivotal moments and transitionary periods in our lives as men.


In a fast-paced and disconnected world, the essence of true brotherhood often gets overlooked. At this retreat, we emphasize the significance of male camaraderie and the healing potential it holds, and create sacred containers for open dialogue, vulnerability, and shared experiences that help forge profound connections among men from all walks of life.

Through shared stories and empathetic listening, we strive to work through the wounds that have shaped us individually and collectively as men, encouraging participants to explore their emotional landscapes, and providing a safe space for the healing process to unfold. By nurturing ourselves in this way, we actively promote personal growth and liberation from our past traumas and create a catalyst for self-discovery and purposeful living – and with the support and encouragement of our brothers – develop a renewed sense of direction, intentionality, and sacredness.

Heal Your Past and Align Your Future

In our safe and nurturing space, we encourage you to confront and release the emotional burdens that have been holding you back.

Our experienced facilitators and guest facilitators will guide you through therapeutic processes, healing ceremonies, and rituals that empower you to understand, process, and heal from your masculine wounds and past traumas, so that you may remember what it feels like to embody empowered and grounded masculine presence, and to live authentically from your own truth.

Let go of the weight of the past, embrace a renewed sense of self, step into a brighter more empowered future, learn what it’s like to feel love and care from fellow brothers on the path, and become everything you are meant to be by surrendering your wounded past.

Live in Your Power and Authenticity

The Heart of Man retreat invites you to embark on a hero’s journey of reclaiming your power as a man. Just as warriors undergo rites of passage to transform, you will be guided through profound initiatory experiences that call forth deeper levels of courage, resilience, and humility.

Embrace trials and triumphs as you delve into the depths of your being, healing wounds, and releasing the emotional armor that is holding you back. Through martial arts, ice bathing, and Temazcal, we will embody the essence of discipline and honor, empowering you to take charge of your life with clarity and purpose.

As you emerge from this, you will stand taller in your authentic power, ready to navigate life’s challenges with wisdom and compassion, and forge meaningful connections with your fellow brothers on a sacred journey of self-discovery.
