Unarmored Heart Men’s Retreat
Wednesday, August 14, 11:00 am - Sunday, August 18, 4:30 pm MDT$595
Join Jeannie and friends for a 5-day wilderness immersion in a forested canyon in the Rocky Mountains outside Estes Park, Colorado. Enjoy meetings in our large tent with breeze and birdsong, camping, wood-chopping, singing, exploring, Aikido sword, hiking and resting, and great food. Retreat from the grind away from the forces of everyday life in the matrix, and enter a safe, kind, heart-centered, male-friendly space where you can explore the man you ARE instead of the one the man-code says you’re supposed to be. Discovery, healing, grounding, deepening in presence, armor-softening, fellowship, laughter, tears, building sturdy support for your open heart, and the exploration of the collective masculine heart are some of the potential fruits of our time together.
Join us to:
•experience the power of grounded Being as a support for open-heartedness
•explore the embodiment of openness through the yang of sovereignty and self-advocacy
•experience a kind of bonding with men you may never have before, without the power dynamics that usually define interactions between men
•discover that the source of your true power as a man is authenticity and vulnerability
•experience directly the strength and solidarity that comes from a group of men coming together to reclaim their innate goodness
•discover your own unique flavor of male-heartedness, which needs not fit any cultural norm

“Jeannie understands the depth and longings of men’s souls. She is a wise and compassionate ally for men. ”
– Tom Daly, Co-Founder, The Men’s Leadership Alliance
“As a man working with Jeannie, I have felt ‘seen’ and accepted in a way that is extremely rare. She is able to speak to a place of isolation and difficulty that most men live with and never bring to the light of day. Jeannie is one of the most powerful allies that a man could be fortunate enough to work with.”
– Colin P, MSW
“Jeannie’s genuine comprehension of men’s experience, ability to reach and touch hearts, and her skill in assisting our healing in a truly unique and profound way is unsurpassed in my experience.”
– Michael Hartmann, Therapist/Educator, Men’s Council Project Graduate
“We men long to unlock our inner selves. Having been to Jeannie’s retreat for men, I know that we can unleash our male hearts—and Jeannie knows the way. She holds an unparalleled, powerful and open space for men–her heartfulness for us is astonishing. You simply have to be in the room with Jeannie—time with her is worth its weight in gold. The secret to finding our true sense of manhood lies in our hearts and Jeannie’s retreat for men is a guided path to that freedom.”
– Evan Winslow Smith, Graphic Artist & men’s group member
