7th Annual Wildman Gathering

Freeing the Wildman

August 20th - 22th, 2021

Southern Appalachian Mountains

Heed the call.

Dive deep.

Free the Wildman.

 Weekend of Elemental Initiations for Men:


Connect intuitively with the forest and the Earth.


Journey together through breathwork and live music.


Drop in deeply with your brothers.

Invoke your individual wildmen through mask creation.


Rebirth through the ancient fire trance dance ceremony.


Wash away false masks in the sacred mountain waters.


Celebrate 7 years of Wildman with us!!!


In 2021, we are celebrating the seventh annual Wildman retreat.  


Here is an invitation to all men who wish to co-create your destiny in alignment with your soul’s true nature, or as the Buddhists refer to it as one’s dharma.  When our lives are filled with passion and aliveness, when our cups are overflowing, and we hold a deep resonant stillness within, then and only then have we embraced the Wildman – the healthy, sacred, timeless masculine living in harmony with all their relations, including the Earth.  A thriving relationship with the Wildman allows us to make life decisions that are drawn from the deep well of our timeless souls.  Our Wildman is alive and we have access to all of the collective memories and dreaming.  The Wildman feeds our hunger and longing

for something more.

“I seek a full expression of the Wildman uninhibited…to play, pray , and go deep with a bunch of truly uninhibited wildmen, yet embrace it in a way for others who hunger to touch that place.”      
 ~ James Mayfield-Smith

This is not a process oriented workshop.  Wildman retreats are completely experiential.

You will go within.  You will go deep.  You will dance.

You will bellow and scream, and also sit in deep stillness and silence.

Embrace the Wildman within.

You will walk away a new man.
