Event description


Join us for a fully immersive year-long men's training program based on the best-selling book, The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida. Together we will read and explore a new chapter every week of the year, and meet in-person once per month in Santa Monica, CA for an evening of discussion, Q&A, and hands on practices led by Los Angeles based speakers and teachers, Justin Patrick Pierce and John Wineland.

In this course you will learn:

  • How to practically apply and embody the practices described in The Way of the Superior Man
  • Discover the difference between your Karmic Purpose and your Heart Purpose
  • Learn how to create polarity by doing nothing impeccably
  • Wield presence as sexual power, depth as sexual value
  • Uncap your biggest fears to uncover your deepest gifts
  • Sustain openness while being challenged by your woman and the world
  • Breathe, move, and speak from your deep truth
  • Sharpen your edges with both mastery and surrender
  • Realize your core reason for being alive
  • Cultivate a deep intimate practice
