Frequently asked questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What is the Tribe of Men Initiation?

We have a unique 3-month initiation process that includes a month of preparation and two months of working with a “life-size” challenge. The challenge is divined uniquely for each man by three tribesmen volunteers, and designed to bring him up against his “stuff” that’s holding him back, or that’s tugging at him from deeper within, throughout those months. Each initiate is paired with a tribesman volunteer who helps prepare for the journey.

When is the intiation happening?

Here are three key dates for the 2024 initiation round, all in person:

  • Saturday, February 10, 2024 – in the SF Bay area (**)
  • Sunday, March 24, 2024 – in the SF Bay area
  • Friday through Sunday, May 17 – 19, 2024 – at a retreat center in Philo, CA

(**) The February 10 date is strongly recommended, if you live in the SF Bay area; not required for men outside the Bay area. The March 24 date and the May weekend are required for all initiates.

We have ten spots for new Initiates in the 2024 Initiation round – could one of them be yours? 

Why would you want to initiate?

Initiation makes sense for men who would like to transform a notable aspect of their life. We all have things we’re working on, to grow and develop – to close the gap between where we are today and our imagined ideal future self. What if you could become your future self faster?

What's The Cost?

Unlike workshops or other weekend retreats, the Tribe of Men Initiation is offered as a gift to you, as part of our “pay it forward” culture. No one gets paid; we are all volunteers, and some of us invest dozens of hours to hold an initiation.

And, while it’s a gift, there are expenses associated with the physical spaces we use, such as lodging and food at the retreat center. When a man commits to stepping into the initiation, we ask for a modest deposit to help cover those expenses. More about this will be explained during the intro call. 


Is initiation right for me?

Yes if:

  • Have a yearning to expand your own consciousness, taking your growth and learning to another level.

  • Want to overcome a big (perhaps the biggest) obstacle in your life.

  • Want to develop your own skills around leadership, collaboration, facilitation, communication, spirituality, building community, and relationship.

  • Want a deeper awareness of your inner landscape and your relationship with the world.

  • Are already in a small men’s monthly group, what the Tribe calls a “Challenge Group”, or are interested in joining a Challenge Group.

  • Align with our purpose to expand the consciousness and integrity of men, “paying it forward” to future men – serving in initiation-related roles or other volunteer roles in the Tribe.  

  • Would like to join a community of men on a transformation journey – committed not only to themselves, but to others as well – towards self-awareness, purpose, growth, and healthy masculinity.
