Men's Group Los Angeles
Embodiment Practice & Circle Gathering
@ Yoga Desa ૐ in Topanga Canyon

Men's Group Los Angeles - At the our men’s embodiment practice and circle gatherings, we focus on movement, meditation, Qigong, physical training, spiritual training, embodiment and practices to deepen and strengthen our presence and containers as men.  We also dedicate time to personal check-ins to share anything that needs to be aired and supported during our circle session. Men share and support one another in all realms of life's manifestations from parenting to relationships to clarity of purpose and everything in between.  We hold and agree to a tight container, and what is shared in our circles is strictly confidential and held by men of integrity.   There is an intrinsic quality of nourishment when men spend time together to train, learn and lean on one another.  Our goal is to cultivate and raise a community, and we invite you to join us.  We look forward to meeting and welcoming you at our next gathering.

Your instructor, Amir Khalighi, has worked with men for over 25 year and is trained to help you develop as a man - spiritually, mentally and physically.

"In one sense, the voyage of self-discovery is solitary, but that doesn’t mean you have to take it all alone. A lot of men suffer silently when they are in creative chaos and feel something is wrong with them because they don’t realize other men are experiencing a similar disintegration of the old modes of masculinity. In matters of the psyche and spirit, taking the journey and telling the story go hand-in-glove, and that is why we need a listening community in order to make our solitary pilgrimage. The most powerful resource we have for transforming ourselves is honest conversation between men and men, women and men, men and women."

— Sam Keen, Fire In The Belly


"Being a part of a supportive men's group can be an extremely rewarding, humbling and transformative experience.  To have like-minded, loving men who are as dedicated to their own spiritual growth as you are - who show you your blind spots, sit with you and listen to you - has the power to transform a man forever." - Amir Khalighi
