Event description

In the fast-paced and demanding landscape of the 21st century, men often find themselves facing unique challenges that can leave them feeling disconnected from themselves, their surroundings, and their fellow brothers. The pressures of modern life, societal expectations, and the relentless pursuit of success can take a toll on our mental and physical well-being. Now, more than ever, it is crucial for men to practice self-care, resilience, and self-awareness. The demands of the digital age, the complexities of modern relationships, and the constant juggling of roles can leave us feeling adrift. It's easy to become overwhelmed and isolated, making it challenging to maintain our mental and physical well-being. This is where 'Reconnect' steps in. It's not just an event; it's a chance to rediscover brotherhood and support, to embrace vulnerability as a powerful tool for personal growth, and to recognize that showing up for each other is essential for collective strength and development. In a world that needs better men, we owe it to ourselves, the women around us and to future generations to step into our roles, to be the best versions of ourselves, and to emerge into the true essence of our being.

About the Event:

"Reconnect" is a transformative experience that uses the power of the four elements - Earth, Water, Fire, and Air - to ground us in the simplicity of our natural surroundings. Through carefully designed games, sacred ceremonies and physical challenges, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery and brotherhood. This event is all about breaking down barriers and forging connections and routines that last a lifetime.

Welcome to an exhilarating two-night and three-day adventure weekend for men. Designed for those who often ride solo and who want to step up. The individuals who've honed their skills in navigating life's uncharted territories and want to connect with others to support and grow together. You've weathered life's unexpected twists and turns, and perhaps you've perfected the art of independence. But remember, a wolf pack thrives when united.

It's time to rejoin the collective, to reconnect, and to discover your inner strength. The world, your family, and your community are waiting for your unique contribution! Join us for an unforgettable weekend brimming with camaraderie, personal growth, and a rejuvenating journey of self-discovery. Together, we'll unlock the power of togetherness and reconnect with yourself, your environment, and the men around you.

At the heart of this initiation experience is the idea that we are not just coming together for adventure and camaraderie, but also for the invaluable practice of teaching each other routines to maintain the mental clarity that we need as men to show up as our best selves. This understanding is central to our mission, and we've found that it is much easier and more fun to maintain this mental clarity when we do it together. Our journey extends beyond physical challenges and adventures; it's about building a brotherhood of support and sharing, where we inspire and learn from one another. In doing so, we enhance our mental and emotional well-being, ultimately enabling us to better serve our families, communities, and ourselves.

This initiation experience will take place on Ariki Estate and Tumanako Hope, and in the sacred embrace of the Big Tipi that serves as our Marae—a place of deep spiritual connection and transformation. This marks a momentous occasion as it's the first time such a gathering is happening on our land, and we are thrilled to have you join us on this powerful journey. Together, we will create a lasting bond of solidarity while equipping ourselves with the mental clarity and strength we need to navigate life's challenges and emerge as our best selves.

🏞 Ground in Earth - Mental Clarity: The earth beneath your feet here at the beautiful Kaipara Moana will serve as our strong pou for grounding your thoughts and emotions. Papatuanuku is here to embrace you and support your mental clarity, and sense of inner peace.

🌊 Connect with Water - Emotional Fluidity: Just as water flows, so too should our emotions. Immerse yourself in activities that connect you with the element of water. Cold water immersion in the stream, kayak chases through the mangroves and purification processes are waiting for you.

🔥 Ignite the Fire Within - Vulnerability: Gather around the ceremonial fire, where music and ritual will encourage heartfelt sharing and vulnerability in our sacred sharing circle. Bring out the warrior through physical challenges with yourself and each other.

💨 Harness the Wind - Breath Control for Resilience: Control your breath through movement exercises that encourage flexibility and adaptability, mirroring the flow of life's experiences. Use your breath and release your voice to harness emotional regulation and resilience. 

🌟 Awaken the Spirit - Inner Strength: Tap into your inner spirit to unlock your hidden potential and inner strength. Engage in meditation and sound journeys to discover your true self and connect with your inner power. Embrace the spiritual aspect of your journey for personal growth and transformation.

Join us on this historic retreat as we come together to create bonds, find solace in nature, and take the right steps towards a brighter future. Secure your spot now, join our online community today and be part of this transformative experience as we build a brotherhood on the land of Ariki Estate, where the past is left behind, and the future is filled with hope.
