John Donne once wrote “No man is an island”.
Yet why do so many men feel alone? Join The Men’s Expedition and know you don’t have to feel this way.
There’s so much pressure to be a bloke, to be tough, to be strong, to not lose face, to keep a stiff upper lip and all the other trappings that machismo and perceived masculinity bring.
At the same time, we’re told we need to open up more, to show our vulnerable side, to be gentler, softer, and more understanding. Yet we can’t be seen to be weak or afraid.
So many conflicting messages and zero space to pause, take stock and reconnect to who we really are at our essence. It’s no wonder men’s mental health is at an all time low.
On our Men’s Retreat, we enable men to take a look at what’s going on for them in a safe and positive environment. Sitting around all day waiting for pearls of wisdom to fall from the sky is NOT what we do. Our retreats are action based. We get up, we get out, we get stuck in, we don’t hold back and we support each other the whole way.
Getting outdoors, taking on the elements together, supporting one another through challenges and setbacks, laughing (a lot), sharing stories, good food and enjoying the pure simplicity of camaraderie.
It isn’t rocket science. But it works.
Why Should I Come Along The Men’s Expedition?
If you’re looking for adventure, a taste of the wild and the chance to go beyond what you thought possible, then join us as to the mountains we go.
Over the weekend, you will experience advanced breathwork sessions, informative workshops, guided meditations, stimulating discussions and of course, cold water immersion. Your local alpine guides will be on hand to help guide you through and gain a unique insight into the beauty that is the Snowy Mountains. Swim in pristine glacial rivers, climb to the summit of one of Australia’s highest peaks in minimal clothing and reach your highest potential during this unique weekend adventure.
We will be there to guide and support you every step of the way. To help you make this your own journey. To allow you the space and provide you with the tools to tap into your inner superhuman.
No matter what your fitness level is, no matter what you’re looking to get out of this time away, you will leave armed with the knowledge and daily practices to enhance your mental, emotional and physical wellness and embrace your true full potential.
