Break Your Chains, A Retreat for Men—Lose Your Unwanted Fears

November 11, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - November 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Break Your Chains, A Retreat for Men

Lose Your Unwanted Fears

Friday, November 11 (3 pm) — Sunday, November 13 (5 pm)

Led by Jamie Yaman


Are you longing for a heightened sense of freedom and courage in your life? Do you feel there is a ton of unused potential in your self-confidence, self-motivation and sexual power? Do you want to thrive with the support of a group of conscious men? Then this workshop is for you.

Where do societal programming and over-thinking keep you inside a “fear machine” that prevents you from going further and deeper as a man? This workshop will take you on an embodied and playful journey to uncover and face your subconscious fears and inhibitions. In a safe space, you can experience a series of exercises, both challenging and liberating.


Lean into the edges of comfort zones and learn how to decidedly overcome what is holding you back, emerging as a freer man. Dare to playfully explore a much broader range of emotions and behavior options than our present-day male image has probably ever allowed or taught you. Fearlessly re-connect your head with your heart and balls, play the whole keyboard of your masculine range, experience the bliss of opening up in a supportive band of brothers – and enjoy the power and strength that flows when the blockages of fear and worry subside. Excel through a deeply-felt sense of masculine community and emerge as a man more free and courageous as you return to your life back home.



The exercises are from John Aigner’s Male Depth™ catalog blending inspiration from a wide array of genres including sexual psychology, yogic embodiment, improv theater, leadership training techniques, and others. The workshop includes a session on implementing your new-found freedoms into all aspects of your life as well as a free online forum and a 2-month program of exercises to continue your journey back home.



Meals: All meals are vegetarian with vegan and gluten-free options available. Meals included in the cost are Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch.

Cost: $495, which includes lodging in a private room, all meals, and all activities
