Harness your Fire – Men’s Retreat 

October 22nd – 24th 

We all have it – THE FIRE WITHIN.

For some it’s uncontrollable.

For many it’s been smothered by society, our past relationships, culture, or by the way we have neglected to tend to it through our habits and practices, either mentally, physically or through our diet.

In reality, it’s our ability to harness and cultivate our masculine fire that allows us as men to achieve the life we deserve, show up in our relationships as partners, mates and fathers, and attain the mental clarity and physical energy we need to be leaders in our own lives.

But… It isn’t about simply having the awareness that we need to make positive shifts or try something new, it is about knowing where to start, what to do and how to approach it from a holistic perspective that has become the biggest obstacle.

At our Ascending Minds – HARNESS YOUR FIRE Retreat from the 30th of July to the 1st of August, held in the amazing Byron Bay hinterland at Sattva Sanctuary Burringbar, just 25min from Byron Bay and 35min from Gold Coast airport, we take you through the perfect blend of Yin and Yang, ancient and modern, and eastern and western practices and techniques that are designed to give you the space, focus and tools to:

  • Release stress and bio memory from the body and nervous system
  • Control your emotions , allowing you to respond to life as opposed to react to life.
  • Manage and reduce anxiety and depression.
  • Understand how to use movement to increase mobility, speed recovery, and reduce pain through increasing strength, stability, and flexibility.
  • Learn how to make adjustments in your diet to develop a strong , lean, and energised vehicle, and
  • Breakdown tense facia that holds emotional trauma and in-turn restricts proper breathing functions.

Join us for 3 days of meditation, yoga, kettlebells, breath work and peak performance strategies that won’t just be kindling on your inner fire, but will be the hardwood logs that create white hot results, whilst learning how to use the breath as the life force energy that keeps you burning long into the future.

From the opening Foundations of Fire ceremony to the closing breakthrough session, get ready to HARNESS YOUR FIRE to transform your life, elevate your consciousness and come into your true potential.
