Embodied Presence and Artful Intimacy An Experiential Weekend for the Evolving Man


Are you ready to live in the full spectrum of your masculine heart, depth, and freedom? This summer on the Kripalu campus, join Eli Buren in a piercing exploration into awareness and embodied integrity.

This weekend is a rare and energizing container supporting your capacity to stay awake, connected, and committed to your life and the well-being of others, rather than being lost in waves of distraction, anxiety, and uncertainty. 

Through meditation, breathwork, qigong, group work, and more, you will explore

  • The distinctions between structures that bring clarity, and those which inhibit the natural and free spontaneity of your masculinity 
  • Instruction in breath practices that cultivate, circulate, and sustain life force
  • The dynamics in sexual polarity and their potent influence on your intimate life, from attracting the partner you desire to deepening your chosen relationship and keeping intimacy thriving and passionate
  • Inspiration and support to begin or deepen a dedicated daily practice
  • Tools to unpack and empower deeper meaning in the doing/being of experience, from the philosophical and poetic to the practical and technical
  • Real bonds of brotherhood forged through loving challenge, and the option to continue practicing with these men as part of an online men’s group.  

Return home stronger and with an open heart, dedicated to the life you are here to live.

Note This weekend is for men who want to know and embody the dynamic fullness of their true depth.
