ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS
Our workshops will give you an opportunity to deeply explore your inner world.
Using the techniques of Core Energetics*, a powerful somatic psychotherapy, we’ll help you access and express
the emotional blocks that keep you from feeling fully alive and engaged with life.
We'll examine and deconstruct your "mask", the adapted self, formed in childhood, that has become
an identity we unconsciously project out to the world.
We'll help you confront and integrate your shadow -- the hidden part of us motivated by fear and resentment -- with the awareness that these self-destructive impulses are protecting our deepest vulnerability and true power.
Our intention is to give you a new experience of yourself, to support you in letting go of the old stories and limiting beliefs
that no longer serve you, expanding your sense of self and affirming your connection to the creative life force inside you.
We promote self-responsibility, which means letting go of blame, forgiving those who hurt us, and embracing the truth that our external reality is a manifestation of habitual thought patterns and unconscious belief systems.
We’ll teach you skills to become more self-aware, less reactive, firm with your boundaries, and uninhibited in the pursuit of your dreams.
Our workshops are co-creations. You're invited to bring all of yourself, to express everything and hold back nothing.
It's only when we're willing to step into the unknown and tolerate the discomfort of chaos (change),
that we can move through to the other side and truly transform our lives.
Our belief is that we are all here to serve life, to support conscious evolution and the betterment of humankind by committing fully to our deepest purpose; and that our fulfillment comes from being part of, and contributing to,
the growth of the whole.
Artist Warrior King is committed to helping men empower themselves to be better citizens, husbands, partners, and fathers. Our workshops are the foundation of our mission. It's where we gather to support each other, to share our struggles and dreams, and use the collective energy in service of healing while facilitating real and lasting change
in our lives and the lives of those we love.
*Core Energetics is a dynamic body-based process that works with our unconscious resistance to being fully alive and present. It was developed by John Pierrakos in the 1970s, evolving out of his work with Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen. Core works with the body as a means of exploring the unconscious mind. Physical techniques are used to support the expression of held-back feelings, with the intention of bringing consciousness to them. The liberation and integration of these feelings bring greater awareness, presence, self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and a renewed connection to the physical, mental, and spiritual vitality that is our birthright.
WHAT MEN ARE SAYING
"This workshop is an opportunity to get OUT of your head and INTO your body and feel everything. The only way to the other side is through. And Dave and Brandon are incredible guides." - Mike H
Societally we are at a crossroads. Masculinity is at a fragile point. It's time for men to start feeling their feelings. All of them. This workshop is a safe space for you to explore ALL of what's inside and bring it out. As men we're programed to "Be strong", "Be a man", the connotations of such have a lasting impact that you may or may not be aware of. Artist Warrior King is the place where you can begin to unpack some of those constructs and beliefs and see what's actually there for you." - Mark L
"Dave and Brandon are a great team. They provided a warm, caring and supportive container which allowed participants to reflect on themselves in a deep manner. They made it clear to us all that it was a laboratory where we could bring everything forward, try new behaviors, share our fears and aspirations and truly be seen as we used the weekend to get to know ourselves in a deeper way." - Irwin K
"David and Brandon were awesome. They were strong in their leadership but soft with their touch." - Nico G
