About the event
Life’s many challenges can leave us overwhelmed, disempowered, confused, and unsettled. Join Brian Strahine, Steve Strother, and Robert Brewer for a full day and overnight of experiential learning opportunities that will serve to ground you in Masculine Aweareness and Alignment and the present moment through mindful awareness of the senses. This retreat will focus on establishing our rooted nature so that we can continue to move forward in life with true masculinity, clarity of purpose, courage, and compassion. We will ground into our true nature by moving in our bodies, eating plant-based food, communicating intentionally, breathing deeply, learning about animal spirits and sacred tobacco, and sitting in silence. The greatest teacher during our time together will be the collective force of the divine masculine embodied in everything we do together. Will you join us?
Lunch, dinner, and breakfast will be a “pot-luck” provided by the men attending the retreat.
This is an exciting opportunity as we will get to eat in a community of men while savoring all the meals with love, passion, and intentionality. We ask that all the men provide plant-based meals.

Meet your Guides:
I have felt called to build community with men my entire life. My soul desires to learn from, and grow with, other men in order to make our world a safer and healthier place for everyone. During my first dark night of the soul, I was introduced to mindfulness meditation and the practice transformed my life. Since then, I have discovered other practices that have served to ground me during times when I have felt mentally, spiritually, physically, and emotionally out of control. I am excited to share these practices with you! I am a Mindful Men’s Coach, 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, Breathwork Facilitator, empathic listener, and curious explorer.
Steve Strother is founder and coach for men at Finding Men’s Peace. Steve has a passion for helping men live better lives in deeper connection with peace, joy, and their own inner strength. Steve helps men connect to their authentic selves through a process of learning and discovering aspects of masculine archetypes, masculine and feminine energies, building inner strength, following joy as a spiritual practice, connecting with and learning through nature and more. He does this through group teaching and coaching programs, 1:1 coaching, workshops and retreats. For men who are ready to explore the deeper aspects of living, Steve is here to help!
Robert is an Army veteran, an accomplished martial artist, past Crossfit and weightlifting competitor, and uses his training better to understand Ki/Chi energy conservation and usage. Robert is also developing his skills in off-grid systems, including rainwater collection/harvesting, water filtration, off-grid solar power, and solar-powered irrigation systems. Robert has a heart for men and helps others learn more about divine masculinity and what it means to be a man in today's culture. Iron sharpens iron; in today's world, men need each other to help balance each other in all aspects of life.
Robert is certified in Transpersonal Hypnosis and his personal, daily breathwork and meditation practice has given him the remarkable ability to move into deep Alpha and Theta brainwave states and to help support others in reaching these states themselves through his verbal guidance and energetic presence.
