Men in Bali program:
Since 2001 the Men in Bali programs have provided an outstanding opportunity for men to explore their potential in a unique tropical setting. Over 100 men have participated in the past 28 programs. Limited to just 8 men per program, only in Bali can we give you the luxury of 6 days devoted just to you… Keep an eye out for our next scheduled trip.
A Man’s Journey Retreat offers 7 days and 8 nights in a Balinese village environment, you will join with other like-minded men and together we co-create a sense of male community that will reinforce each man on his journey. You are not alone in your exploration, all men go through stages and phases and that the completion of one stage makes possible movement to the next. We will look at all life stages and ensure that you are familiar with the journey of transformation. We offer a unique opportunity and process that supports, encourages and challenges men to move beyond their sometimes limited concept of what it is to be a fully functional man. This call is not about becoming bigger or better or more important than anyone else, each of us has an essential contribution to make and we can do this by finding new ways to live as rich, empowered and authentic men. We want you to claim abundance and prosperity as part of your journey.

There are a lot of demands made on men these days. So much so, that we forget that we need to find some space to sort things out. Blokes know this but where do you go to figure it out?
Pretty straight forward really. Most men get this way and the answer is to meet and share with other men about what’s going on. This is not in a ‘fix it’ sort of way, but it’s just great to know from other men that they’ve got “stuff” happening too. Common to men in midlife for instance, are issues related to the pressures on their life, and how they cope that often leads to, stress, depression, addiction or compensatory behavior like overwork.
For older men, with their working life over or considering retirement, that ‘what’s next’ feeling can lead to a confusion about how to maintain a personally meaningful life in the future.
When a bloke decides to take a good hard look at these things, and discovers with other men their commonality, it makes a difference. As well as getting a handle on your own stuff, you get to appreciate and support other men. This makes you feel better about yourself and others get to notice that. Especially your family and friends.
