Earth Brothers Retreat

Shortened version!
7-8 January 2023

Discover your masculine strength  
2 days of self reflection, healing and connection with your brothers
Do you dare to be vulnerable, to stand for yourself, your needs and your truth?

Ready to take off your mask?

Do you long for a deeper connection with your brothers? Do you feel you are playing small? Are you ready to show your true authentic strength? 

From a very young age we are taught that masculinity looks a certain way, which do not necessarily nourish our relationship to ourselves and other men. In our society being masculine is associated with being strong, rational and competitive. So mainly ego driven. Everyone wants to belong which results in us adapting ourselves and showing "expected" behaviour. So basically we numb our feelings and put on a mask to keep ourselves functioning in every day life.
But who are you underneath all that? What if you would take off that mask? What if...?

  • speak your truth?
  • would embrace and express your feelings?
  • ...your societal status and pride fall away?
Do you dare to take off your mask? To walk the path of vulnerability? 
To let go of ego and have an honest look at yourself in the mirror?

Let yourself be held by the soft and strong arms of your brothers.

During the Earth Brothers Retreat we work with shadow parts, so it is possible that you get in touch with unconscious parts of yourself. With a team of experienced spaceholders (Ramon Smit, Rune Asmussen, Joris Boons and Jitse Bouma) and each other, we create a safe haven to hold space for your pain and transform it. Strangers at first sight, but soon you will experience brotherhood and connect to each other. Men who accept you as you are and hold space, but are also able to be a confrontational but honest mirror for each other. Open, honest and loving.

Are you ready for
an unforgettable experience?

Why join a mens retreat?

We organise these gatherings because we believe it is important to bring men together and to bring back brotherhood into our individualised society. Especially nowadays it is crucial that we expand the consciousness of men,so we can heal together and have a community where you feel supported. 

What you may experience:

  • A deeper sense of connection with other men
  • Re-connect with your inner child
  • Stress release
  • The power of vulnerability
  • Recognising your true self
  • Discover your true needs
  • Healing emotional wounds
  • Connecting with nature
  • Personal leadership

What's in the broederliefde retreat?

During the Earth Brothers Retreat we go back to the roots 
Moving away from stereotypes, roles and identification
Connecting, healing and empowering each other
Show yourself man!

What is on the program?

The 4th edition of Earth Brothers is here! This year we have created a series working with the elements ontwikkeld. We beginnen in dit retreat met het the earth element where we will plant a seed for the new you in 2023. What do you leave behind and what will you manifest this coming year? Find deep grounding in connection with your brothers. By fully being present with other men, without being distracted by female beauty or other external stimulants, magic arises. Every time something special, something unexpected happens.  Men experience deep connection with other men, soften and follow their path with renewed strength and power.
