INITIATING MEN ONTO A NEW LIFE’S PATH

For generations, men in virtually every ancient culture (from the tough Spartans, to the wise Greeks, African tribes and Indigenous cultures) gathered to hunt together in groups and spend time in nature – talking, competing and bonding with each other.

It is very natural process to sit in the company of other men. It is familiar because we’ve done it for thousands of years. It taps into a very primal experience of being a man.

Often times this is when initiations would happen – sacred ceremonies where the elders of the tribe would initiate the young into maturity through various trials.

There is something very special when men come together to do this work, which is difficult to describe with words

Men back then, understood the value of spending time amongst men and doing manly things. They understood that value of initiation and that men need guidance and wisdom on their path to maturation.

This is why I am want to bring this back to you.

To show what I have learned on my own journey (for nearly a decade now) having traveled through many countries, on the opposite side of the world, experienced different cultures, been to a plethora of retreats and workshops and spoke to countless men.

But in order this work to happen, we as men, have to set ourselves apart and go into a “no man’s land, often referred to as “liminal space” . One has to leave behind work, women and his cares of the world. It is during these times in a man’s life that he is leaving behind his old ways of being, and is initiated into a new version of himself. 

I have carefully designed the weekend around a series of psychological and somatic practices, bringing the best of science and tradition, to take you on a process of self-exploration, healing and initiation.


This weekend is all about transformation, forming brotherhood, camaraderie and expansion

There WON’T be any lectures. This retreat is ENTIRELY EXPERIENTIAL.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

My name is Pavel Nikolov

For the last 8+ years I’ve been on a journey of self discovery, healing and conscious learning.

I’ve trained in various modalities – NLP, Coaching, Bioenergetics, Men’s work and more.

I run regular men circles and am quite passionate about bringing this much needed work to the world. I started this project out of my own need to reconnect with my masculine side given that we have very little few places to do so. The disconnect between our authentic masculine selves is one of the major, if not the major cause for today’s upheaval in society.

The world is divided and lays in broken heaps, because men is divided in himself. The world needs strong men, now more than ever.
