Are you craving a deeper and more authentic connection to other men and your own masculinity?

This is an important time in history, when we are called upon to re-invent what it means to be a man. But it’s not just about calling each other “brother” and making grunting noises.

Stepping into conscious or “divine” masculinity might look different for each of us.

Join transformational facilitator Nick Meador to find your own unique path!

This fully guided experience will include:

☆ Cacao Warrior Ritual

☆ Embodied Empowerment through Bioenergetics Exercises

☆ Circle work (if someone has something to work through)

☆ Integration with Communication Practices


• No pressure to expose your deepest, darkest secrets in front of a large group.

• No dogma about what it means to be a man or doing men’s work.

• No worship of a guru telling you the “right” way to live or be.

• Finding the BS Free fellowship that you’ve been craving with other men.

• Gentle guidance from ceremonial cacao, the “Food of the Gods.”

• Safe and effective ways of transcending limiting beliefs and inner critic voices.

• Deep fellowship that comes from real validation and truly being seen and heard.

☆ This is a BS Free Spirituality experience. The container is CONSENSUAL (you decide what’s right for you) and CONFIDENTIAL (take only your own experience out with you). ☆

Entry includes a cup of ceremonial cacao! Pure cacao is a gentle plant medicine that opens the heart, deepens meditative experiences, and fosters inner/outer connection. With his social enterprise Soul Lift Cacao, Nick serves cacao grown organically at a family farm in eastern Guatemala, prepared by a women's collective at Lake Atitlán that he met personally, and obtained through ethical direct trade WITH FULL PERMISSION AND CONSENT TO SHARE IT IN THIS WAY. When Soul Lift Cacao buys from the women's collective, 100% of profits from that sale go back to the Mayan indigenous people growing and preparing the cacao. By giving back and showing respect, we honor the sacred role that cacao has played for thousands of years in the indigenous cultures of what we now call Central and South America. We are so fortunate that ceremonial cacao is entering the global consciousness at a time when it can have a massively positive impact. For more info visit

*Cacao consumption is optional at this event. It is not advised for people taking MAOI anti-depressants or people with a heart condition to have a full serving of pure cacao.
