Wild Man Within

The time has come.


Are you feeling lost about what it means to embody the healthy masculine?

Do you often wonder what it means to be a man, a father, a son, a brother, a husband, a partner?

Are you feeling a lack of energy? Disconnected from the inherent vitality of your masculinity?

Are you feeling alone and disconnected from your brothers? Are you struggling to nurture true, authentic relationships with your fellow men?

Are you longing to let your wild man emerge and guide you?

Our relationship to the masculine is wounded.

Our rites and initiations into manhood have been lost. Models of the healthy masculine are far and few between.

We have lost touch with the natural world and our place as men in it.

It's time to rebuild a world where our relationship to the masculine is healthy and life-giving.

It's time to create a world where authentic brotherhood is accessible to all men at all stages of their lives.

Brother, it is time

We need you to be a model of life-giving and fierce masculine energy for your community

We need you to develop and share your natural gifts with the world

We need you to be alignment with the natural world around you and in right relationship with the wild man within

We need you to know who you are and to channel your inner masculine energies freely and unapologetically

We need you to embody your passion and purpose and be a lighthouse for others on their journey

The Wild Man is not aggressive and violent—a tyrant to others.

Nor is he soft and passive—a victim of external circumstance.

The Wild Man answers to a higher power and leads to forceful action undertaken, not with cruelty, but with resolve.
