"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first."
Are you ready for:
- deeper self-understanding?
- improved relationships with yourself and those you love?
- a supported space where you can be yourself and share with other men like you?
You are? So then what would you say to a week dedicated to deep diving into these questions in what many consider to be one of the most auspicious places on the planet?
Sounds amazing right? If you're as excited as we are about this incredible opportunity then this journey is for you.
The Awakening Man is a transformational adventure experience for men looking to awaken their greatest power, potential and authentic self expression in the world.
We are bringing together a group of courageous men willing to dive deep into what it truly means to be a man in the 21st century; free of any labels, restrictions or limitations.
This incredible journey will take us down into the Sacred Valley in Peru and up into the majestic and mystical Andes Mountains with other like-minded men as we hike our way to the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Throughout the 3 day trek we'll visit Andean villages, meet the local indigenous people and visit local schools in their mountain villages. We will be camping amid the spectacular mountains and experience two traditional, indigenous ceremonies with a local shaman.
We will connect, learn and raise our consciousness. This sacred exploration includes daily reflection, group discussions and exercises all centered around your full integration as a complete and whole human being. There will also be a healthy dose of physical activity, learning, sightseeing and cultural immersion.
If a deeply transformational experience in one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World resonates with you then we wholeheartedly invite you to join us!

Are you ready to step into your full potential?
"Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave. "
Are you ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime?
The Awakening Man is a call for all men looking to step more fully into who you are as men and as human beings.
Some of you will join because you feel most drawn to the camaraderie and the adventure of a new culture and experience.
Some of you will join because you've been on an inner journey for many years and the combination of a focused, purposeful, spiritual adventure is exactly what you're looking for.
And then there will be some of you who may be new to this type of an adventure, whether it be the more physical aspect of it or the reflective portion, yet understand that in order to grow and evolve, a little stretching outside of your comfort zone is just what the doctor ordered.
All are welcome! Jonathan and Scott know that the men who come together in August 2017 are exactly the group of guys needed to make this journey an incredible, life-changing experience!
This trip is for you if you are ready to...
- break free of any self-imposed labels, fears or limitations.
- dive deep and inquire into your belief systems
- radically transform your life and the way you relate to those around you.
- lead a more open, authentic and compassionate life
