HER. A Men’s Retreat



For generations, cultural and societal beliefs have deprived men of their true essence. The patriarchy has robbed the masculine of his creative expression, brotherhood, authentic relationships, safety, connection and most importantly, love.

In today’s reality, old-paradigm role models such as Hollywood moguls, politicians & religious leaders are tumbling off their pedestals for their toxic masculine behaviors. This reality moves us to investigate and refine parts of ourselves to make space for a deeper connection to the feminine aspects both within us and outside of us, to find and restore the balance.

Now is the time to ask ourselves the deeper questions around what it means to be a man. Now is the time to shed our old conditioning and beliefs to establish new role models and support structures. It is time for us to re-evaluate how we can show up in service to the feminine, including our planet, that which sustains all life.

This retreat is for men who feel called to strengthen their ability to be present and connect to both themselves and their environment in a more meaningful and productive way. Learn to see life through a creative lens that allows for more authentic communication, deeper creativity and confidence while building strong support structures with other men.



HER. is a 5-day retreat for men in honor of the divine feminine. This experience takes place in the Costa Rican jungle hosted and curated by life coach, Alain Lagger.

Together we will take this intentionally crafted journey to identify and shift non-serving patterns, choose gentleness over force, compassion over aggression, devotion over objectification and vulnerability over impenetrability.

Unleash your creativity and full expression to reclaim the creator seat in all areas of your life. This retreat is designed to have you experience unexplored facets of your expression.

Experience the majesty and mystery of the jungle, rewild your senses, sharpen your intuition and instincts through an initiation in the jungle led by Costa Rica’s premier survival expert, Alberto Lopez.

Deepen your personal practice through breath work, meditation & ritual to cultivate your energy and use it to manifest your dreams led by practitioner, Johann Urb.

Empower yourself with knowledge about our shared purpose at this stage of our collective evolution. Guest speaker Alnoor Ladha, Executive Director of The Rules, will share on sacred activism.

As we create the sacred container for this powerful work together expect emergence and surprises beyond your wildest imagination. The world needs strong balanced men now more than ever.



This retreat is taking place at Brave Earth, a living laboratory for regeneration and co-evolution with nature. This alternative community, regenerative farm and healing arts center is nestled amidst the jungle, thermal pools and cloud forest.

The living lab is located on the northwestern Caribbean slope of Costa Rica, about 2.5 hours from San Jose. We have created a 280-acre commons nestled between the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, one of the largest protected regions of rainforest north of the Amazon, and Volcano Arenal, which many consider to be the spiritual center of Costa Rica.
