Wild at Heart BASIC is not a retreat about the "seven things a man ought to do to be a nicer guy."   

It is an immersive journey to recover the masculine heart.  

Give yourself permission... to explore your deepest desires, to reawaken passion, and connect to the goodness and nobility of your heart.  

To know yourself... to find a life worth living, to love a woman deeply, and raise children well, you simply must get your heart back.
