About

An Evryman Open Source Retreat is very straight forward . It is 40 guys and 10 facilitators coming together with the simple agreement to set aside cultural norms and be transparent, honest, and vulnerable with each other for a weekend. We use simple communication protocols as a large group, in small groups, and in pairs to reach deeper within ourselves to stop holding back who we are. We do hikes, sometimes in silence, and we create time for everyone to have quiet time in nature. We eat amazing food and create amazing experiences together with the help and safety of Mother Nature.

WHY WE INCLUDE NATURE​

If we simply brought 40 guys together for a weekend in nature without anything else, it would be a helpful, restful, growing experience.  Our deep goal at all times is to create an environment that allows us to all relax and be ourselves all the way through.  There is no better example or teacher than nature.  A tree is a tree and a bird is a bird.  In nature we literally have air to breathe, space to roam, and subconsciously we get more deeply connected to ourselves and each other.
