Developing Emotional Skills Amidst Isolation, Using Our Innate Physiology – A Men’s Retreat

Developing Emotional Skills Amidst Isolation, Using Our Innate Physiology – A Men’s Retreat


In the realm of emotions, many men find themselves more like bystanders than expert firefighters. Think about it: the trained bravery of a firefighter rushing into a blaze versus our own hesitations when confronting emotional challenges. I have often felt the weight of isolation, hesitant to face my own emotional fires. Would you run into such a fire?

Loneliness and isolation have a way of intensifying the natural flames of our lives and relationships. Our primal, untrained reactions? Fight, flee, or freeze. While these survival instincts are invaluable in critical scenarios, they can exacerbate feelings of loneliness when misapplied in our interpersonal relationships. I have been there, relying on these instincts, only to deepen my sense of isolation. Do these emotional patterns resonate with you?

Recognizing my lack of emotional skills and the resulting isolation pushed me on a decades-long journey with fellow men. The goal? To foster authentic connection amidst a world where loneliness often reigns supreme. After extensive time in men’s groups and individual sessions, a clear path to emotional mastery emerged: the EVRYMAN Method. Developed over six years with an extraordinary team, this method offers tools for deeper connections and emotional well-being.

Enter MELT (Men’s Emotional Leadership Training). Here, participants delve into honing their emotional skills, ensuring authentic connections with others. The cornerstone of our approach is the belief that every man innately possesses emotional prowess, often buried deep within. We are here to help you unearth it.

In the MELT sessions, isolation and loneliness swiftly dissipate. Vulnerability — often stigmatize — becomes the bedrock of authentic connection. Envision an atmosphere where genuine interaction is the norm, laughter fills the air, and lasting bonds are formed. Participants, many initially drawn by a sense of isolation or relationship struggles, leave with enriched emotional skills, genuine friendships, and a renewed passion for life.

For a closer look at the power of MELT, an ABC News feature offers a snapshot of this transformative experience.

If you feel the tug of MELT, we are extending an invitation for a free consultation. Visit our MELT page for more information or to register for the call.
