June 21-23, 2019 at Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center in Carefree, Arizona
Men! You are invited to participate in a powerful weekend 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 Celebration with gongbath
  • Follow up coaching session with Jere
  • And much more!
