Men's Work Intensive by Embodied Masculine™

Space is limited to 15 men. Admission by application and interview process. Now Accepting Applications For 2025 Session


Countdown To The Start Of Next Session - 01/02/2025 6:00 P.M PST

"Men come seeking answers on why they keep getting into the same types of relationships with similar outcomes, having issues surrounding money or feeling stuck in their lives.  They want to fix or change their outside circumstances in order to feel better on the inside.  We change that paradigm perspective in this work. We shift our attention and awareness inward.  Before a man can know and claim his purpose, he must burn his attachments which preoccupy his mind and his life.  As he does, he will pick up the scent of his inner essence - his higher self - to guide and lead him. He then learns to develop and nurture that inner flame.  He stops his conquest to feel free from the burdens of his circumstances and finds nourishment through his connection to the Divine. He stops falling in love with the gifts and starts falling in love with the Giver."

Amir Khalighi - Founder of Embodied Masculine

The 8 Intentions of The MWI Program:

  1. To be a catalyst of TRANSFORMATION in men's lives
  2. To cultivate a deeper CONNECTION to one's highest self & the natural world
  3. To bring clarity of PURPOSE
  4. To empower and SUPPORT men through a journey of deep introspection
  5. To free men of their attachments
  6. INSPIRE men to bring their GIFTS and offering world
  7. To provide a safe container of ACCOUNTABILITY
  8. To cultivate a deeper capacity for men to live in their POWER

This work will culminate with a private 5-day/4-night male initiation retreat

Jason Dixson

"The growth, self-awareness, capacity for leadership, and brotherhood that I've cultivated during the MWI program has made a tremendous impact on my life. I used to be constantly swayed by the turbulence of life happening around me, whether it be related to career or relationships. Then, through working with Amir and the MWI program, I learned to ground myself through a more intuitive understanding of nature and a daily practice to sustain my connection to the Divine. Life is constantly testing us, and it's easy to be bulldozed by our circumstances, but by doing the hard-work set out for me in this program, and staying close to the trustable men that I've met there, I've learned to find my center and to daily reaffirm my commitment to deepening my consciousness. I used to not fully trust men, I used to have a story about how I don't fit in with them, until I met the men in this group who I trust with my life. I've never felt more inner peace and groundedness, all during the middle of a global pandemic. Any man who wishes to find his connection to something greater than himself and develop the capacity to handle the turbulence of the world should absolutely enroll in this program."

What MWI (previously known as MI-IR) Alumni Have To Say

View recent photos

"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 on this adventure into your own soul, and you will be changed."

— Beau W.

John Yang (C-EMF)

"We are often blind to seeing our true selves. We live our day-to-day conforming to societal constructs, which suppresses our ability to embody and show the world our true inner warrior.

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

"The work with Embodied Masculine has cultivated tools and awareness in me to more fully express and see the beauty within me, nature, my family and friends. 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.

What does the initiation entail?

During the months leading up to the private initiation retreat, you will be training to strengthen yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. During the retreat, we will meet in person in the heart of Nature to dive deeper into shared embodiment practices from sunrise to sunset. We will be nourished with amazing farm-to-table meals and participate in a transformative initiation ceremony on the final night of your stay.

The initiation ceremony experience is intentionally private in nature, but know that it is designed to connect you on a cellular level to the deepest part of you, bringing you in communion with the Great Mother, Nature, Higher Self, God or however you choose to call Her.

The MI-IR Program by Embodied Masculine™
Mike Johnson (C-EMF)

"The MWI 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. I was pushed in ways I needed to be pushed, the whole time feeling safe and cared for with brotherly love and the support of impecable men. The practices and attention to every detail opened a space for me to have a breakthrough in my self discovery. Although there are no words that can sufficiently encompass the entirety of my experience, I feel awakened to a powerful connection of truth, self awareness, deep brotherhood and infinite love for our Great Mother. "

"I felt like I was a part of something real and valuable. The practices shared with us are powerful and took me deep every time. I saw the other men in the MWI program evolve and grow in truly inspiring ways. Overall it’s an experience I really honor and value, that I feel a lot of gratitude for. To anyone who is searching for a program with real potency to commit to: You found it."

— Edward T.

Kyle Leighton (C-EMF)

"The MWI program provided me the space to strengthen my masculine container while deepening my connection with my feminine. I reconnected with my heart and my ability to be mindfully present enabling myself to feel more deeply into the freedom and joys of life. I bonded with brothers on our shared journey through the earth, as I saw a piece of myself in each and every one of them. As I continue to search and feel into my greater purpose on this earth, this program and retreat stands paramount as a great stepping stone on the path to clarity. "

— Kyle L

Trey Hesari

" I was able to go deeper and tap into generations of trauma and oppression that I carry from my ancestors. Through the great work Embodied Masculine provides, I was then able to release this
trauma in a healthy way and connect to my power. I feel empowered and free. Let your healing begin"
