Genuine Being: “The Unmasking of Self” 

Men want to be themself and live a more authentic life. Why is it important, and what exactly does it mean to you? Look at the man in the mirror. Is he the one that molds to what society wants him to be, despite being deeply unhappy inside? Is this man you? 

Is it possible to live more authentically? Could your inner world be happier while you change the way the outside world sees you?

Absolutely. It’s time to rediscover the authentic self you’ve kept hidden for so long that even you forgot it existed.

We offer a unique opportunity to be part of a small group of like-minded men who are lifting their masks attending this Genuine Being: “The Unmasking of Self” weekend retreat – this weekend is filled with self-discovery through conscious bodywork, male bonding and touch. Journey into active meditation, breath work, energetic movement, and conscious connection through touch. You will begin to rediscover your TRUE self by lifting the mask.

The question is: Can we live more authentically? Will the world inside us be better and what about the world out there?

The Authentic-self losing the mask Retreat offers an opportunity to be part of a powerful transformation process, in a safe, trusting, authentic and supportive group of men searching for the same.

Potential outcomes for this weekend

Event format:

Be prepared to do solo work sustained by the group, but with duos and trios and group work throughout.

What to bring:

A sarong, beach towel, hand towel, sandals, walking shoes and toiletries, we will forward you a more complete list once you’ve purchased a ticket. 

What to wear:

Comfortable, loose clothes or sarong during the retreat and something warm for the evenings. During the retreat, we request that you refrain from using perfumes or deodorants. 


No previous experience of massage, yoga or bodywork is needed but would be an advantage eg. Aquabliss4men or a Massage Exchange


The True Self is free and without identity. Clothing, labels and technology mask our True Self. We, therefore, invite you, if you feel comfortable, to shed these layers and experience the weekend with no restrictions. 

Is this for me?

This event is open to men regardless. Often we can give ourselves a hard time on how we think we look to others, and this is an opportunity to go beyond that, to be vulnerable and to let others accept you just as you are. With open hearts, with an openness to accept everybody, let the magic of touch take you to new parts of yourself you never knew existed.
