Men’s Emotional Leadership Training

This weekend retreat is one of EVRYMAN’s deepest growth experiences for men looking to take their social and emotional life-skills to the next level. Not only will you learn and grow yourself, but you’ll develop practical skills to help other men in their journey as well.

Join MELT: our Men’s Emotional Leadership Training & Retreat

A time to hone in our authenticity, our self-awareness and our relational acumen for the betterment of all, and to be with a group of men committed to such work, to strengthen life-long connections, and to support each other on the journey. 
  • This weekend retreat is for men who want to:

  • Dive deep using our EVRYMAN Method
  • Cultivate personal strength and confidence
  • Learn to guide & lead other men
  • Improve relationships at home and at work
  • Connect on a profound level with the world around them
  • Cultivate life-long friendships and support with other men
  • Be part of an elite group of men with such training and experience to apply to Men’s Work
  • Qualify for EVRYMAN’s certification program – the Foundations Training

We’re blazing a trail into territory few men have gone before. The benefits don’t just make your life better — they change the world and those around you.

Taking place at the stunning Menla center in The Hudson Valley, NY, MELT offers some relaxation with our learning. Take advantage of the trails, book some body work, and more.

Join an adventure that will challenge you, change you, and give you a new perspective on your own manhood.

Registration closes Tuesday October 25th.
