"Begin Within...Unplug. Reconnect. Recharge."
Calling All DADS!!! Join Meditation Teacher, Mind/Body Movement Specialist & Yoga Instructor...Adam Michael Brewer in Ojai Valley in Southern California for a 3 days / 2 nights getaway. We will practice yoga, meditation, breathwork, ice baths, and fellowship. If you're looking to find greater purpose, peacefulness, patience, presence, passion and playfulness, then this is just the experience you need!
To create a safe space for dads to unplug from the matrix of life, slow down, open up and deeply connect with themselves and other like-minded papas. In this 3-day experience, we will break bread together, practice meditation and breathwork, do yoga, hike, swim, and play/breathe through a "pure presence" ritual known as an ice bath. Then intent is to have you leave the 3-day retreat and return to your daily life feeling grounded, rejuvenated, empowered, connected and more grateful that ever before.
Our mission with Conscious Dads is to create a global community of dads who are looking to create A New Model Of Manhood, and specifically Fatherhood. One where we live in awe, ever-evolving, free to become, moving our mindset from me to we, having a passion for conscious evolution; living with an interest to see things as they are not as we wish them to be, unflappable & rooted yet expanding; to be man enough to admit your fears yet to take action regardless and not be afraid to “fail”; to be a Dad who is human enough to stop fighting fire with fire, rather to be like water (adaptable, fluid); to be Service-oriented, less stubborn & more flexible; to live as men who aren’t afraid to cry, who listen more than they speak, who are spacious, safe, joyful, expansive, and conscious.
And why is it important to do this work? So that we raise "integrated" children who are kind, caring, loving, confident, generous, resourceful, compassionate, helpful, empathetic, playful, creative, peaceful, inclusive, and philanthropic.
So how do we get there? It starts with daily use of some "tools for transformation" which have proven to be game-changers for me and so many others. And this 3-Day Retreat is designed to introduce you to a few of these simple yet profound practices in a way that allows you to put then into action in your life right away. Namely meditation, breathwork and yoga. No experience is necessary to participate. My goal is to share them with you in a way that is easy to understand and do. At the very least, you'll get to spend some time off the grid in a beautiful, serene location, surrounded by like-minded Dads.
