As I sit down to reflect on the past 3 days, I could not be more proud of these men or more honored to be gifted with their trust to lead them through this emotionally and physically intensive weekend of fitness & leadership training.

Some things I noticed:

  • This warrior community is craving more depth and is far more willing to take a deep dive into embodied masculine leadership practice than I thought.
  • I’m always surprised at how completely emotionally taxing this work is, yet at the same time more rewarding than anything I’ve experienced in my life.
  • Sometimes we take so much on that we forget what’s important. There is great value in men pointing at what they need/want from other men so that they may focus on what matters.
  • I need to include more physical ‘mini-selection’ type work in future events.
  • I would like to end these events with a BBQ.
  • It’s more clear to me what it looks and feels like to fully serve my clients.
  • I’m much more reliable to stay consistent with my own practice when it’s in service of modeling the work for my clients.
  • Embodiment work is a tool that can be used regardless of desired outcome: clarity of purpose, overcoming addictive behaviors, becoming a better combat soldier, creating a more fulfilling experience of life, and more.
  • Enrolling someone into assisting me was one of the best decisions I made. Too often we try to hold all the space without any support. This often ends up being a lose-lose.
  • It’s challenging to balance friend and leader. Men must have clarity as to how they choose to show up in any moment.
  • If the container is strong, men are willing and able to open up much faster than society would otherwise believe.

This past weekend were some of the most rewarding days of my life.

Thank you for travelling all this way.
Thank you for setting the bar high.
Thank you for your trust.
Thank you for being a King.
Thank you for playing full out, men.

To your continued success,
