In this 9 month program we will build from foundational practices to the deeper Tantric applications as well as new embodiment and shamanic material. Notoriously rigorous and challenging, this is not for the faint-hearted.

The group is dedicated to emotional, spiritual, and sexual practice as it applies to being with women and the world. Informed by Steve and Michaela’s approach to Men’s Work which demystifies the development process and empowers each man to stand on his own two feet as a practitioner.

This program is intense, personalized, and practical.

We will meet four times across the 9 month for a full day of practices with assignments, supervised self-practice and group work between meetings. This group coincides with the women’s study group to create opportunities for joint practice meetings.

Each event offers opportunities to experience a wide array of practices, from innovative movement approaches to clear meditation instruction, and across a wide range of topics such as accessing the body’s subtle sensory arrays to the fundamentals of sexual yoga.

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.

Some of the areas in which you will work with on this journey:

Personalized Assignments
Throughout the study group you will receive personal assignments tailored by Steve and Michaela to your goals, practice level, and individual make-up.  The assignments are often reported to be among the most transformative aspects of the journey.

Embodied Movement
Engage in wide range of movement practices to open and educate the body, including the Non Linear Movement Method and the Movement Koan Method. You will experience movement as a method of release, somatic education, empowerment, and life practice.

Drawing from various traditions and sourced in living experience, we meditate as a means of engaging with life. In developing the core attentional skills of concentration, sensory clarity, and equanimity we can reduce suffering, increase satisfaction, gain insight into self and other, become more skilfull in the world, and uncover a spirit of genuine service. Learn a variety of techniques, as well as an understanding of how and when to use them.

Engaging with Sensations
Through engaging bodily practices, meditation, and nature we explore relationship to the full spectrum of sensations from the pleasurable to the unpleasant. This engagement can be applied to situations of stress, survival, emotional turmoil, and also has strong sexual and relational implications.

Honing your Discipline
You will be supported to develop a personal practice of your own and a broad understanding with which you can self-guide or work within various traditions, approaches, and practice modalities.

Erotic Engagement and Relationship
Learn the foundational requirements for proper sexual yoga and energetic work.

Iron Sharpens Iron 
Connect with a group of inspiring men as you journey through the months together, drawing strength and inspiration from each other as the course unfolds.

It’s refreshing to partake in a self-inquiry Intensive for men only

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 is really unique

Steve is really unique in his extremely grounded educational style and his depth of experience, his ability to integrate the teachings bodily and intellectually and this without loosing connection to real people and our life…Meeting Steve James, following his work and attending all of his teachings in Amsterdam since our first meeting has been pivotal in both my own spiritual and personal development.
