Empathy Intensive For Men

Bridge the Divide - Hold Space - Resolve Conflict - Build Trust

July 21 - 23, 2022

Participation extremely limited.


All men are sabotaged by Shadows of Shame who spew lies that can invite the man to disconnect from his core truth and hijack his ability to connect with the people he loves. 



Compassion, empathy, and love are the real pillars we need to build within ourselves to become human.  - Loknath

Empathy is not only a nice-to-have but the glue and accelerant for business transformation in the next era of business. Empathy’s ability to create a culture of trust and innovation is unmatched, and this previously overlooked trait must be at the forefront of [every relationship and] business across all industries. - Steve Payne


This interactive workshop uses the Finding Peace Model to help men increase their capacity for empathy - one of the most essential skills in building trust, advancing creativity, and deepening intimacy.   Empathy is a skill and you have the amazing capacity to increase your empathy mastery.  


Shame hijacks our ability to be empathic.  Think about the last time your significant other or close friend was upset about something you have done? How easy is it to not become defensive?  How often, as they are looking at you with tears falling from their eyes, does your Judge show up and shift the attention from their hurt to how crappy of a human being you are? How often do you find yourself becoming defensive, dismissive, or distant?  What effect does that have on your relationships?

There is a better way.


Empathy is a brain-based skill that lights up our own pain centers in the brain when we see someone else getting hurt. Remember that last time you saw another man get hit in the balls.  Did you cringe in pain along with him?  That was emotional resonance lighting up in your brain. Emotional Resonance is a key element in our ability to experience empathy.  

Our pre-frontal cortex also plays a huge role in helping us with empathy.  It helps us put words to what we are feeling. It also helps us become grounded in the face of high emotion. It is a key component of emotional intelligence that helps us make sense of the suffering and develop soothing strategies to calm the hurt.

And because these are brain-based operations, that means you have the ability how to access these parts of your brain and change the neurochemistry of your brain with amazing results.

These are signs of someone lacking solid empathy skills.  If you checked even one of these boxes, contemplate how much this impacts your love life, your relationship with your family and friends, your career, and your own sense of worth.

We realize the cost of this intensive may seem high.  However, how much is it costing you when the Shadows of Shame keep hijacking your ability to be compassionate, grounded, and understanding?  Is $2000 more expensive than continuing to suffer? In truth, an intensive workshop like this is a more financially reasonable alternative. 

Attending 24 sessions of individual coaching or counseling can cost more than $3000 and if you attended one session a week it could take close to six months to get the equivalent of what we accomplish in three days.   

The registration fee includes your lodging and meals.  The only thing the fee does not cover is your travel to Yuma.  Yuma has an international airport with connections to both Phoenix and Dallas-Fort Worth. Yuma is also only 2.5 hours from San Diego, 3 hours from Phoenix, and 4 hours from Los Angeles.

This intensive taught me more how to move forward and not let my shame shadows convince me I'm powerless and unimportant. This intensive really cemented the idea in my heart that we all need authentic, honest human connection. As we share and are vulnerable with each other, we are able to recognize the shame shadows more easily and fend them off.  I have gained empathy tools to utilize in my own life on a daily basis. The guidance I received and ability to zero in where I am struggling is amazing.

The activities allowed me to make connections with other participants and feel safe. This allowed me to practice the skills I am learning without judgment. I also appreciated the continual interactive material and therapeutic tools I learned.  I think that something that was really amazing for me is the material that helped me see my self-worth and capabilities as I face personal struggles and challenging situations in my life.
