When a man is unwilling to move out of his comfort zone, breathe, and step into life:

He becomes but a husk of the fine-tuned & powerful embodiment that he was born to be.

His capacity to face the real-time risks of a courageously lived life weakens and wildness wanes.

His ability to stand strong and hold a note of consciousness and love through the challenges of intimate relationships is diminished.

Are you ready to explore this beautiful rouged landscape while forging an unforgettable path to your inherent source, power, and wisdom?

Join renowned men's leader and spiritual teacher Eli Buren on your journey into greater meaning, depth, and freedom!

In This Immersion, You Will:

  • Understand and embody your life purpose in greater detail and grounded being.

  • Create a stronger relationship with that which challenges you, choosing to face the fire and be sharpened in the process.
  • Learn to circulate your breath and sexual energy, renewing your essence and amplifying your life force toward work and love.

  • Unpack habits of life that tend to go unchecked and learn how to bring clarity and consciousness to them.

  • Bring deeper awareness and passion to all aspects of life; your partnership, your work, your health, your spirituality.

  • Bask in the beauty and intensity of a very wild place while simultaneously noticing and exploring the frontiers of your own internal landscapes.

  • Challenge, celebrate and wrestle with brothers in strength and humor, forging bonds that last a lifetime.

  • Explore the distinctions between structures that bring clarity and those which inhibit the natural and free spontaneity of your masculine genius.

  • Train deeply in the principles of a dedicated morning routine. Learning specific practices to take home, offering you a trustable structure to sharpen, awaken, and strengthen yourself for years to come.

  • Enjoy daily meditation, qigong and martial arts, group check-ins and reflection, epic adventures into the surrounding valleys, partner accountability and presence practices, solo depth contemplation’s, encounters with wild animals, delicious food, and celebratory evenings around the fire.

"The men’s immersion in Zion was one of the most important and powerful things I’ve ever done for myself. And it was returning home where I was met by the most sincere feedback of how powerful it actually was. 

First from my wife, who was amazed of the stark difference between the man that left, and the solid and still presence of the man that had returned. 

And second, from a friend I play in a band with. I had a show scheduled for the day after my return. As a professional musician I was concerned that being away from my instrument for over a week would be noticeable, especially to my bandmates. But as I began to take my first solo I quickly noticed a level of inner freedom and spaciousness I hadn’t ever had access to prior to Zion. When I finished with this improvised solo this friend looked at me with raised eyebrows, and simply said “shit, every man should go to Zion.” It was then that I really knew something profound and deep had shifted within me."

- James Yaman

"I experienced a type of leadership in this immersion that I was beginning to think didn’t exist: Eli showed up as a centered, humble, and wise leader willing to hear and integrate feedback in real time. He owned his space and role with grace and clarity. His consistent focus on the experience of the group kept us present with one another, even through conflict. I resonated with the importance he placed on ritual and ceremony, and the applied wisdom of how these cultivate and contain an experience. What touched me most about the immersion was the container: the natural surroundings, both vast enough and clearly defined as to provide a visceral sense of freedom and safety in which to do, and celebrate, the deep, essential work of the masculine."

- Sean Talbot

"Eli embodies rarely found qualities that spoke to my soul. A combination of honor, depth, strength, love, and a sense of sacredness to everything he brings. He is as authentic as it gets for true spiritual seekers looking for a combination of challenging outdoor adventure, silence, brotherly love, and healing. Thank you Eli! "

- Jandro

"If your searching for an absolute game changer, internal and external life riveting experience, do the Men's Retreat with Eli Buren! The sense of reverence I feel today for the life I live is beyond what I imagined. The revelations I experienced have me living from a deeply heart centered space that I had long forgotten. I am eternally grateful."
- Richard Parkes

"Eli has an uncanny ability to provide sharp accountability while holding space in a gracious manner that demands personal growth and introspection."

- John Mooney
