Sacred Sons Embodied Masculine Retreat

For all men.

Join the cofounders of the Sacred Sons group in a unique experience that confronts and expands your personal relationship with masculinity and Self. This men’s retreat offers physical, emotional, cognitive, and relational practices designed to challenge your beliefs on what it means to embody healthy masculinity. WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE
  • Healthy masculine embodiment experience
  • Brotherhood connection
  • Personal growth

Throughout the weekend, you explore various traditional and modern frameworks to help you face all aspects of yourself in a safe, supportive, and healing environment. Connect to your body through breathwork, movement, wrestling, and other physical practices. Find your emotional edge in guided dyad, triad, and group work focused on deepening vulnerability, authenticity, and connection. These dynamic exercises allow you to reflect on what is out of alignment in your life and teach you how to process the emotions that get in the way of your relationships.

Return home with clarity and a newfound commitment to making the necessary choices to live a life of purpose, supported by a brotherhood of men.

Note This program has extended hours that might make it difficult to participate in other Kripalu activities or receive Healing Arts services. Bring comfortable clothing, a journal, and sacred altar items. Sacred alter items are objects that inspire reverence and gratitude to something, an experience, or someone who is close to your heart. Examples are pictures of loved ones, an item from nature that you connect with, or something that reminds you of a transformational moment or memory.

“I have been struggling for two and a half decades with shame and guilt and the inability to express the root of it because of feared repercussions in my daily life. Sacred Sons immediately felt like the right space to express myself, and I did. As a result, I experienced more healing in this one weekend than I ever have on my own. I finally feel free of that burden. I feel back in control of my life and thoughts, which I haven’t felt since I was a child. I feel worthy of living.” —Past program participant
