“Be a Mensch - a good person”

is what they taught you.


And so ... you became one.

You now have your family, career, and reputation to show for it.


But, when they were teaching you to be a mensch,

they did not say... 

being a mensch can also leave you feeling Empty:

Without Purpose, Passion, Fulfillment, and Sense of worth


They did not say... being a mensch

can also leave you feeling: Depleted, Lonely, and Empty

More Than A

This is NOT a call to stop being a good person.

But it is a call for those who yearn for something more.

You have a choice!

Be a Mensch


Be something MORE,

Experience something MORE,

Live something MORE.

In this confidential circle of men,

you will be

supported, challenged, and loved.

You will be called upon to deepen and stretch

in ways you may not have experienced.

You will be taught to strengthen your nervous system

so you can show up more powerfully

for your loved ones, your colleagues, and your community.

You will focus your purpose,

deepen your most important relationships,

build a brotherhood,


be nourished to your core.

More Than A Mensch
is drawn from the systems of Mussar, breathwork, and embodiment,
informed by the teachings of such ground breaking men's work leaders as
John Wineland, Robert Glover, David Deida, and the men of Menschwork,
and emphasizes integrity, nourishment, and consciousness.
