What's included in at this reteat:

3Day Camping retreat in Ojai, CA: Three day immersive nature retreat at a private 13 acre estate in the beautiful Ojai mountains of California.  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: You will be off the grid camping with the rest of the men.  Tents will be provided and shared.  Please review your packing list to make sure you arrive prepared. 

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

√  Do Nothing Time: Between our practice sessions, you will have "do nothing time or free 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.

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

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)
