Men’s Leadership Training

4 days of Connection, Confrontation & Transformation

on Ancient Sacred Lands

Dahab, Egypt

Spring, 2024


 Are you ready to embody your purpose as a leader? 

Are you ready to take your leadership to the next level?

Are you ready to have a profound life-changing experience and unlock more of your potential?

A Transformative Training
for Men


In today's society, many men find themselves grappling with feelings of isolation and disconnection, often lacking a clear sense of their purpose and role in life. This retreat presents a unique opportunity to break away from the daily grind and prioritize personal growth and leadership development. 

Over the course of four days, we will delve into both our collective and individual masculine identity and purpose. Nestled in one of Egypt's most enchanting locations, this retreat promises to facilitate a reconnection with nature, allowing for a profound understanding of oneself and one's position in the world. Participants can expect to regain confidence, motivation, and a renewed sense of direction and purpose. 

Beyond personal growth, this retreat also emphasizes the significance of building authentic relationships. By fostering open communication and facilitating deeply meaningful experiences, we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging within a community of conscious leaders who share a common desire to create a better world for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Zag is a contemporary dancer and a certified Pilates instructor. Since a very young age Zag started his movement journey doing Karate on a high competitive level for over a decade, and that was just the beginning His passion for movement wasn’t only towards martial arts but also towards anything that can be challenging physically and mentally. It was a big shift when Zag started directing his focus towards dance as a full time dancer. Zag danced in many dance performances with many local and international choreographers on stages and in the street as multidisciplinary art Dance was the connecting link between movement somatically and all the other layers of movement emotionally, psychologically, and mentally. During his dance education Zag found his love for anatomy, biomechanics and many other tools that gave him more access to movement theories. Becoming a teacher of Pilates, was the real moment for Zag to see how regular and consistent movement can change someone’s life drastically Growing up in this field expanded Zags perspective and experience on how the human body isn’t just a vehicle to move with, but also a container for the human emotions, the more it’s explored, the more access to its compartments, the more magic to discover, the more power to harness, the more you remember what this body is designed to for.
