An Embodied Masculine 3-day Men's Retreat

06/03/22 to 06/05/22

Woodstock, NY - Space is Limited To 22 Men



Countdown to the Start of this men's retreat - 6/3/2022 6:00 P.M PST

leave the familiar for awhile and let your senses and bodies stretch out

You have a unique opportunity, as Hafiz says, “to leave the familiar for awhile and to let your senses and bodies stretch out.” 

Spend three magical days deep in embodiment, somatic and shamanic practices designed to realign you to the deepest sense of yourself and the natural world.

Let your body be nourished through community, camaraderie and delicious farm-to-table meals prepared by our divine chef extraordinaire, Ms. Ava Malazian.

You will have the option to secure your spot at our retreat with or without lodging.  See details surrounding the process for consideration in joining us below.  

We will have multiple practice sessions throughout the day, free time, shared meals with one another, and will let Mother Nature nurture us (see schedule below)

We look forward to sharing this magical experience with you.  Please note that space is very limited at this facility. We are capping this retreat at 22 men.

"It is often said that getting from head to heart is the longest journey, and this program gives us concrete, real-world vehicles to experience the fullness of love and presence that we were perhaps created for. It is challenging and freeing. Join in this adventure into your own soul, and you will be changed."

— Beau W.

John Yang

"In doing the work in this program, I am peeling back layers upon layers of bullshit! The container in which Amir holds, alongside the men doing the work with me, has been instrumental in shifting and reshaping who I am and the gift that I bring into this world. Words can’t express my deepest gratitude. "

— John Y

Stephen Wilkins

"I encourage anyone who is called to this path to step in and experience deeply the joy of finding their purpose and freely expressing their gifts to the world. When you choose to do this work, you will take a meaningful step into your deepest, most authentic life."

— Steve W.

Mike Johnson

"The retreat in Mazama truly exceeded my expectations. I was taken on a journey of self-exploration that my soul was desperately craving. Amir’s ability to hold the space for all of us men was impeccable. His integrity, courage and heart was consistent and prominent."

— Mike J.

What's included in at this reteat:

√ Retreat On A 13 Acre Private Estate: Three day immersive nature retreat at a private 13 acre estate in the Catskill Mountains of New York.  The exact location will be shared with attendees to respect the wishes of the property owner. 

√  Divine Farm-To-Table Meals: We don’t use the word "divine" loosely at Embodied Masculine, so when we say “Divine Farm To Table Meals” we're being serious. Every meal is prepared with the deepest care and attention designed to nourish men doing powerful, confronting work.  Every ingredient has been hand picked by our private chef, Eva Malazian, to support your well-being and nourishment.  

√  Lodging (optional)You have the option to stay on the property.  We can only accommodate a certain number of men.  Once lodging sells out, you will need to register for this retreat without lodging, which means you will have to find lodging elsewhere.  Those not lodging on site will need to leave the property after the final evening practice. 

√  Nature Immersion: We will be hiking deep into the Catskill Mountains on Saturday for our immersive hike.  A packed lunch will be provided and we will be practicing out in nature.

√  Do Nothing Time: Between our practice sessions, you will have ample "do nothing time" where you can enjoy your time in nature as you see fit.   

√  FTP Offerings: 12 men on this retreat will be from the Embodied Masculine Facilitator Training Program. In addition to assisting Amir during our practice sessions, they will be making unique offerings during free times.

√  Somatic, Embodiment & Shamanic Practices: We will be holding multiple practice sessions throughout each day. These practices are designed to free you in ways you may not have known you needed.  Practices are designed to give you insights and empower you on your path.

√  Brotherhood, Support & Camaraderie:

You will share heart-opening and powerful experiences in practices, go on magnificent hikes, practice in nature, share meals, enjoy fireside chats and song, and most importantly, make friends for life.

Want to be part of this experience?


If you are interested in this retreat, you have the highest chance of gaining entry by applying early. We expect more applicants for entry into this summer retreat than the available 22 spots. Not all applicants will gain entry into this retreat. All applicants will have to go through an application / interview process unless you are in the Facilitator Training Program (FTP).

All men are selected based on their readiness, willingness, openness and commitment to diving into this level of deep, introspective men's work for the 3 days ahead of us.


Once your application has been reviewed, you will be invited to an informal 15 minute interview. The interview is to see if there is alignment, if the timing for this type of work is in your best interest at this time, and to answer any questions you may have.
