Dive deep into the Divine Masculine, exploring its power, purpose, and potential in this unique workshop event!

Diving Into The Divine Masculine

Join myself and your brothers for a 6-part, in-person gathering where we explore the depths of the Divine Masculine. This event is all about celebrating and understanding the powerful energy that resides within all men and those who identify as male. Through engaging discussions, exercises, and activities, we will delve into topics like self-discovery, emotional intelligence, and healthy relationships as we deepen our intimate relationships with ourselves and others. Don't miss this opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and embark on a journey of self-exploration. Come and embrace your true masculine essence!

The first 3 sessions in the series we will be together as brothers and dive deep into the masculine.

The 4th week, we will have a Ritualistic Healing workshop collaborating with our divine sister's led by Alyssa Anaya and guest teacher Feather Rose Marie (which meets all of the same Wednesdays separately. Couples, lovers and friends are invited to do the series together/side by side). This guided experience was born from our desire to heal the male/female split in all of us, working with the ways in which we have been wounded, and allowing ourselves to heal in community.

The 5th week, we will reunite as brothers again to embody and integrate what we have learned into practice.

The final workshop in the series will be a Tantric ceremony with our divine sister allies. Together we will celebrate by sharing our newly revealed divine essences with each other through guided Tantra practices. Clothes on and boundaries honored.

All gender expressions and sexual preferences are welcome!
