In this 8-Week Journey You Will:

  •  Awaken and embody your unique masculinity
  •  Transform anger into increased energy & sexual vitality
  •  Learn how to create a passionate & thriving relationship
  •  Break free of recycling patterns of negativity
  •  Cultivate inner strength and vitality


Every man faces challenges in his life, the more empowered and skillful you become at navigating them, the more enjoyable, meaningful, and impactful your life becomes.

For more than a decade I have coached men in life and relationship and know the pitfalls that we face in our busy lives. The Men’s Passage is built on thousands of hours of personal development through a wide spectrum of disciplines and traditions spiritual, shamanic, relational, men’s work, martial arts, and yoga – coupled with the work I have done guiding countless men through their own personal Men’s Passage.

Men who work with me learn how to face difficult situations with confidence, feel more sexually empowered, and embody an authentic strength that permeates into every aspect of their lives.





The Men’s Passage is an experiential journey that will carve a new path in the wilderness of your being. 
This is an interactive, live, and personal experience. It is comprised of the most successful tools from one-on-one coaching, and it pulls from my seasoned experience as a facilitator of men’s groups.
My commitment is to support you to embody the most effective empowerment and transformational wisdom available so that you can plug into your core power and generate more of what you deeply desire in your life and relationship. 


That Will Empower You From the Inside Out

Application Deadline is March 28th










In this module, you will go deep into yourself and fortify your foundation on all levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Without a strong and centered Foundation, we look for outside validation and easily lose our center. This is an opportunity to root deeper into yourself while stretching beyond your comfort zone to rewire any habits or behaviors that keep your sexual life, relationship, creativity, or career from truly thriving.

  • You will establish a strong connection to your core power in 3 specific ways
  • You will discover and grow an authentic confidence that comes from deep within you
  • You will harness the transformational force of responsibility


This module is all about gaining clear insight and developing laser focused goals for your personal, professional, and relational growth. Your intention is the fuel that propels you forward — it’s your inner fire and your inspiration to stay disciplined in the practices that will change your life. Your thoughts and beliefs have a major impact on what you experience.

  • Uncover and dissolve what’s in the way of owning your gifts
  • Release old paradigms of lack and create from responsible wholeness
  • Experience yourself in a radically new expensive way


The healthy masculine is emotionally mature, penetrating, compassionate, and purpose-driven. This module is about strengthening your masculine force and connection to your core. This will increase your capacity to show up with a grounded heart that’s wide open. You will learn how to embody powerful masculine archetypes that create more confidence and meaningful connection in all your relations.

  • Engage more fully with the world around you
  • Harness the power of anger, knowing it as a catalyzing force
  • Embody the Modern Warrior


An intimate relationship with a beloved is the ultimate test of how spiritually mature or developed you are. In this module, I intend to share with you the most valuable tools I know of  —  the ones that magnify love and burn through relational drama or repetitive patterns.

  • Learn how you can create a thriving relationship that lasts
  • Become highly skilled at dissolving conflict and keeping your sexual fire hot
  • Create love from wholness and not lack


This module is about increasing the bandwidth of your being on many levels. To break out of familiar habits and addictions you need to be doing something a lot more stimulating and enjoyable. We are going to turn on your nervous system in fun and exhilarating ways that stimulate hormones and enliven cells in ways that will have you firing on all cylinders.

  • Learn to utilize the full resources of your body/mind/spirit!
  • Relax at a deeper level and feel your strength
  • Optimize your breath and movement to free up your force


FLOW is one of the hottest subjects around right now and for many good reasons. Without access to what is called FLOW, the hustle of life will deplete and wear you out. FLOW is an optimal state of functioning efficiently, and you don’t need to be a super athlete to access it. You can access your higher faculties and find FLOW in your work, your relationship, and through vitality enhancing practices. I’m going to teach you effective access points to a highly functional state that you can bring to all you do.

  • Discover the superpowers of your senses
  • Rewild yourself in pleasurable and powerful ways
  • Utilize creativity and play to free your mind


More than any superfood supplement, working with your sexual energy will enhance your life. As men, we are evolving our sexual capacity to include the full spectrum of sexuality in a conscious and responsible way.

  • Learn how to harness your sexual energy for more pleasure, vitality, and sexual sustainability
  • Increase your capacity to love by mastering your sexual force
  • Become more magnetic and desirable to women
  • Awaken your genitals at a whole new level to sustain maximum pleasure


This module is about developing what it takes to continually apply what you learn in this program so you can live with embodied purpose and make your highest ambitions a reality. You have the reigns to utilize and direct the wild horses within you.

  • Learn to integrate the tools into your daily life
  • Become a leader on matters you care deeply about
  • Know what it means to be an ally and true friend
  • Build a fire that is stronger than any limiting patterns that may re-emerge in your life.
