The Men’s Study Group is dedicated to intelligent exploration and diligent practice as it applies to engaging in the world. Informed by Steve and Michaela’s approach to Men’s Work, this group honors the development process and empowers each man to stand on his own two feet as a practitioner.
In this intense, highly personalized setting you will receive one-on-one attention, group support and homework assignments. We will meet on Zoom four times within a 9-month period, with assignments and tailored support.
Between meetings you will engage in self-practice and personal exploration supported by an online platform. There will be additional connection via a dedicated Facebook group.
You will explore pathways that not only reveal and clarify the nature of your interior structures, but also equip you to practically apply these learnings in your life, work, and relationships.
The focus of this group is to obtain a working knowledge of key practices that acquaint yourself with your mind, body, sexuality, relationship, and life navigation.
The emphasis is on acquiring and integrating practical skill, and does not rely on peak state experiences or aspirational ideology.
Real skill acquisition involves consistent practice, and you will be guided in both how to establish a personal practice and how to organize your time for maximum effectiveness. This starts at a very manageable minimum and is scale-able depending on your available time and energy.
Whether you’re a beginner or already have experience, this disciplined and creative approach to practice is highly valuable and honed from both Steve and Michaela’s decades of training and their years of work with high performing individuals.
The meetings will involve specially designed experiences to facilitate deep exploration, as well as technique instruction, lectures, and Q&A.
Between the meetings you will implement homework that progressively installs the core skills in your body and mind.
By the end of the year you will have:

It’s refreshing to partake in a self-inquiry Intensive for men only. Even more refreshing was the clarity and objectivity in Steve’s facilitation. I am now equipped with a sensible and workable toolset of self-inquiry practices for my everyday life. Good bye ‘self-development’ workshops.
Steve James is quite possibly the human, fiery bearded re-incarnation of Yoda. Timeless wisdom emerges from him through impeccably Zen sentences and movement patterns. He’s funny in an off-beat dry, British way. There is a mystical quality to his presence and a peaceful power that emanates from deep within.
In my personal life I have gone through some very intense and difficult events over the last year. Without the training from Steve from both his public workshops and private sessions I am sure I would not have been able to pass through these troublesome times unscathed. I cannot only recommend highly the material that Steve has developed but also his integrity and dedication to his craft.
Steve’s program is absolutely distinct, unparalleled, and revolutionary. His understanding of embodied expression and non-linear thinking and movement has transformed my life. Innovation in this field is exceedingly rare. Steve and his essential contribution to the training continues to reset the paradigm of the human evolutionary process.
I’ve found the men’s training that Steve James delivers to be completely unique in a number of ways. As a result of my attendance in Steve’s programs, I’ve found myself more connected and aware of my physical body and inner emotional state. The impact of this in my life has been profound. I’ve seen profound improvements in my relationships, in my business and in the general day to day attitude I have towards life.
Steve’s ability to mentor in a range of areas, from personal growth through to business/teaching practice is something I have never experienced before and am benefitting from on a daily basis. Personally, it is a relief to not have to research teachers any more, now that I have found such a strong combination of skills in one person.
Steve James travels internationally teaching somatic practices, meditation, yoga, as well as leading explorations in contemplative, mystic, and relational realms.Known for his intelligent, grounded approach and his dedication to first-hand research he has extensive experience in elite athletic performance, contemplative and spiritual disciplines, the arts, extreme outdoor survival, and human behavior.In addition to private client work and international public workshops, Steve has released a DVD series of his movement approach called the Movement Koan® Method, a fusion of joint-nourishing movement and body-based mindfulness.Read more
