The Recovering Man 2-Day Men’s Intensive – An Online Retreat
THE RECOVERING MAN 2-DAY MEN’S INTENSIVE
AN ONLINE RETREAT
SEPTEMBER 26 – 27, 2020
A WEEKEND OF DEEP HEALING, INNER WORK & ESTABLISHING YOUR MASCULINE CORE
WHY MEN NEED A SANCTUARY
MEN ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY DISTANT FROM ONE ANOTHER & THIS IS LEADING TO ALL MANNER OF DYSFUNCTION.
THIS DYSFUNCTION BEGINS WITHIN OUR HEARTS & EVENTUALLY MANIFESTS IN THE EXTERNAL WORLD.
WITHOUT A TRIBE, MEN ARE PRONE TO LIVING AS WANDERING “LOST BOYS” WHO SEEK VALIDATION FROM THE WORLD, WORK & WOMEN.
THEY BECOME TRAPPED IN NEGATIVE MENTAL CYCLES, COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOURS & PAST TRAUMAS
THE 2-DAY MEN’S INTENSIVE OFFERS YOU A SANCTUARY, A PLACE TO CONNECT WITH MEN ON A SOUL LEVEL, TO CLEAR INNER DEMONS & GROUND YOURSELF IN AUTHENTIC, STOIC MASCULINE ENERGY.
WHAT WILL WE DO ON THE INTENSIVE?
By gathering together as men, we overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings, we face our fears, and we support one another in clearing our inner blockages, taking us to inner peace, strength and purpose.
We do this by forming a tribal community intent on actualising our full potential as men.
Only by facing our challenges can we overcome them, and we can only overcome them together as a unit.
The 2-Days will see us embrace techniques such as open sharing, deep inner work, cleansing breathwork, dynamic meditation, and physical movement.
We will also explore the key facets of being a man in the modern politically correct world, explore our relationships with other men, as well as uncover our purpose as individuals.
Finally, we will explore our relationships with women, discover how masculine energy chimes with the feminine, and how to remain a stable, awakened man living in his authentic, raw energy.
There will also be time for leisure, with readings, video viewings and live music, with the opportunity for you to let out your creative side, whether that’s reading a beloved piece someone else has written or playing a song of your own.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost of the 2-Day Event is at an early bird rate of £57

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL ATTEND?
It is very important that we have enough men to form a collective tribe, but not so many we feel we lost with all the names and faces.
Henceforth, the 2-Day Recovering Man Intensive limits participants at 11 per event.
Why 11? Because with Richard included, that makes 12 men, and the number 12 carries great spiritual, mythological and magical symbolism, generally representing perfection, entirety, or cosmic order:
- There are 12-Steps on the Hero’s Journey
- The Twelve Olympians are the principal gods of the Pantheon in Ancient Greek myth
- In the King Arthur Legend, Arthur is said to subdue 12 rebel princes and to win 12 great battles against Saxon invaders
- There are 12 Petals in Anahata or “Heart Chakra” in Hinduism
- Christ chose 12 Apostles in the New Testament
There are also 12 months (solar lunations) in the year, 12 hours on a clock and 12 members in a jury.
So as a grouping, we can see 12 is the perfect number of men to create a movement, while also connecting with each other on a deep level
HOW DOES AN ONLINE EVENT WORK?
Online events are structured similarly to in-person events with sessions structured throughout the day.
The Recovering Man 2-Day Men’s Intensive will be split into three sessions over two days, as per the below:
- Morning session (10am – 12 noon)
- Day session (2pm – 4pm)
- Evening Session (7pm – 9pm)
*The above times are all UK time
The event will take place over Zoom where you will have constant contact with the group as well as the founder of Recovering Man Richard who will be taking each session.
While the time between each session is yours to do with as you please, there will be an expectation to maintain a healthy life throughout the session, avoid strenuous activity and to remain in a state of peaceful introspection and awareness.
There will also be an opportunity to speak privately if you feel you need or want to in between sessions.
