About this Men’s Residential Retreat:

Please see event dates for your area

Purpose of this event:

The question is: Can we live more authentically? Will the world inside us be better and what about the world out there?

The Authentic-self: losing the mask Retreat offers an opportunity to a powerful transformation process, in a safe, trusting, authentic and supportive group of men searching for the same.

Potential outcomes for this weekend

  • Connection with the True Self and men (women) around you
  • Desire – Exploring what is holding you back 
  • Conscious communication skills for fulfilling relationships.
  • From headspace into your body and be in the moment.
  • With bodywork, breathing and meditation techniques we connect with ourselves 
  • Giving yourself consent to be in a space where you are fully embracing and to respect your own boundaries and others.
  • Be involved and authentic in your whole live

Event format:

Be prepared to do solo work sustained by the group, but with duos and trios and group work throughout.

What to bring:

A sarong, beach towel, hand towel, sandals, walking shoes and toiletries, we will forward you a more complete list once you’re purchased a ticket. 

What to wear:

Comfortable, loose clothes or sarong during the retreat and something warm for the evenings. During the retreat, we request that you refrain from using perfumes or deodorants. 


No previous experience of massage, yoga or bodywork is needed but would be an advantage eg. Aquabliss or a Massage Exchange


The True Self is free and without identity. Clothing, labels and technology mask our True Self. We, therefore, invite you, if you feel comfortable, to shed these layers and experience the weekend with no restrictions. 

Is this for me?

This event is open to men regardless. Often we can give ourselves a hard time on how we think we look to others, and this is an opportunity to go beyond that, to be vulnerable and to let others accept you just as you are. With open hearts, with an openness to accept everybody, let the magic of touch take you to new parts of yourself you never knew existed. Read more if you have any more questions FAQ.
