Join our 4 Week Online Intensive program.


Connect, learn and grow - both as a man, and as a leader of men - in this advanced, emotional-development and leadership program.

Our Most Comprehensive Training

Foundations is both a deep commitment to your own emotional growth and development, as well as a deep dive into the skills, tools and experiences you need to guide others.

As featured in

Commit to your growth as a man and a leader

Not just a leadership training program: This isn’t a passive experience. It’s a transformative, hands-on, deep-dive into guiding men through the fire, by going through it yourself first.

A solid path forward: Foundations program participants can go on to become EVRYMAN facilitators, bringing their lessons to life in their own community.

Grounded in our core ethos: At the core of our values is the notion that the best leaders are men who have led themselves through deep change, Foundations is built around learning from your own growth.

How Foundations Works

The first four months of Foundations take you through our most thorough and intensive emotional development program. This course is for EVRYMAN members who are really ready to go deep into their own work. It’s intense, but it’s worth it.

The last two months of this program build on your personal experiences in the first four months to give you a deep understanding of the EVRYMAN method. This training will allow you to incorporate our skills in your own practices as a leader, coach, or facilitator. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with a community of other facilitators and grow your network.


  • Improve your tools: Build a foundation of skills, techniques and experiences that can be applied to your work as an EVRYMAN facilitator (if you should choose to head down that path).
  • Take your personal development to the next level: Further your own emotional growth and development towards living a fuller more-present life.
    Find your crowd: Connect in a deep and impactful way with a cohort of like-minded men on the same path.
  • Connect with yourself: Learn how to slow down, listen to, and connect with yourself.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of who you are: Do the hard work of digging below the surface to understand yourself on a deeper, more meaningful level.
  • Learn how to own it: Learn how to step powerfully into your own being and lead.

What to expect

Because this is our most intensive program, we have to be upfront about the fact that this is a big commitment of time and energy.

That said, you are making this investment in your own growth and in the growth of the men you will be helping with this knowledge for the rest of your life – the value of this program will pay dividends for a lifetime.

Program Requirements

Weekly group meetings with your cohort and facilitator, and an additionally 1-3 hours per week for individual work. Participation in a weekly EVRYMAN men’s group, or another men’s group in your community, is strongly recommended. Men are encouraged, and supported, to start a group if you don’t have access to a group. You must have completed the EVRYMAN MELT training, or equivalent training – If you haven’t done MELT yet, you may be able to join one coming up, or sign up for 1:1 mentoring to prepare for the Foundations training. All participants must agree to the Terms and Conditions of this Training: 30 Hours of group leadership, including mentoring an EVRYMAN group or supporting a group’s organizer.

You can expect a deep dive into your own relational, emotional, and personal growth. A path to have you learn the principles and skills through teaching and through experiential practice. We cannot teach what we have not experienced. You will feel confident in leading a man through a Healing Journey, lead a group through our process, and teach men how to connect to their emotions and “do the work”.

Yes. If you opt-in for the full program with the Facilitation Training and pass a simple assessment, you will receive a Certification from EVRYMAN validating your capacity to offer/do EVRYMAN’s work to our standards.

Nothing is guaranteed, but you will be first in line, with other Facilitation Training graduates, for opportunities to lead EVRYMAN Drop-In Groups, assist at EVRYMAN retreats, and assist with leading EVRYMAN courses. We also enjoy collaborating with Foundations graduates to develop new EVRYMAN courses and educational content.

This is our highest level training, you will be at the pinnacle of learning the EVRYMAN Method. What comes next is to bring your skills to the world, in a 1:1 coaching or Group leadership capacity. For those interested in starting their own coaching or facilitation business, we have a preferred partner (a Foundations Training graduate) offering a Business Bootcamp for Coaches & Facilitators.

In the future there will be mentoring programs for those wanting to lead retreats and programs on their own under the EVRYMAN banner.

We offer practice and integration opportunities both during and after the training.

Class or practice time will be 90 minutes per week. There will be another hour or more of absorbing the online material. Every man will have a Foundation Training Project where you take the work out in the world. Men in the past have hit their wall of excellence; with the support of the program, facilitation staff, and their cohort discovered that they were capable of more than they imagined. 

Membership is not required. However it will be required while you are enrolled in the Foundations Training to connect to the EVRYMAN community of men in order to have more opportunities to learn and practice.

You can say you are trained as an EVRYMAN facilitator, and if you take the full program, you will receive an official certification from EVRYMAN.

In addition to applying the skills gained to your own leadership practice, you will be eligible to assist and co-lead at EVRYMAN live and virtual events. You will be encouraged to take your application of the EVRYMAN Method out into the world as your unique contribution.

No. but it is very helpful to be in a group and understand the dynamics. The more group experience you have, the more effective you will be as an EVRYMAN facilitator.

We have therapists and coaches take this program to up-level their somatic and emotional skills. Many of our students have no coaching experience. Through receiving and giving support to fellow participants, you learn and embody powerful coaching skills not taught anywhere else. At the end of the Facilitation Certification Training, men share how in one coaching session, their clients report huge shifts.

Going against the norm where traditionally professional trainings don’t provide professional development (business) training — we do. We believe it’s not enough to train you well to lead or coach; we want you to succeed.
