Join our 2nd Men 3-day retreat in Ibiza
Friday October 30iest – Sunday 1st of November
In these times of transformation
the call is to go back to our foundation
to own our emotions and projections
to gather in unity and support
not in competition and emotional distance
To become a clearer channel
to be able to say a strong NO and a full YES
to hold, protect and nurture the feminine inside & outside yourself
while letting go of old toxicity and layers of conditioning
and honour and embrace more of our mature masculinity
Ibiza Men Retreat 2020 program
We start on Friday in the charging & intense Masculine energy in front of Es Vedra in the extreme South-West of the Island. Here, we gather in circle, get to know each other through some physical exercises while having a magical time descending to Atlantis. This first day is about expressing our masculine life force, untamed and far beyond the limits society puts on us. IN a safe space, we build up our strong connection through getting real, heart-connected, present and clear with ourselves and each other.
On Saturday, we make a connection to our creative source, hiking through forests, hills and old dried out river beds to the eternal source of Ibiza: Es Broll. Along the way, we practice gratitude & presence, and before our lunch, in nature, we come together in circle in this enchanted fertile valley. We end this day at the best tapas place of Ibiza: Can Tixedo.
On Sunday, we explore the feminine principle within ourselves in the North East of Ibiza around the Tanit Cave. To balance with our first ‘masculine’ day, we integrate applying age-old masculine nurture practices. We close with a fire circle and a nourishing dinner under the stars.
This retreat offers space for deeper transformational work using the heartIQ ™ modality and the ancient wisdom of Mature Masculinity. In heart IQ circle work, the amplified field that emerges when coming together in circle in full presence is used to facilitate a possible shift of your energy beyond any story in your mind. This strong embodiment practice can potentially de-block frozen energy and get yourself in touch with a wider emotional range.

About the Facilitators
Jeroen van Weeghel (The man on the right)
Jeroen’s mission is to help connect men to their masculine spirit through bodywork, nature, walking, writing and speaking. He works with groups, individuals and teams.
Jeroen encountered men’s work and circles at the age of 22, in a quest to part ways with addiction to pornography. Connecting with himself and other men in a new and mature way, was part of the solution to the addiction. Connection is the opposite of addiction. When you feel truly connected to yourself and everyone and everything around you, there is no need for addiction.
Connecting to the wild and untamed masculine spirit opens the path to a deeper sense of fulfillment and belonging. Finding your own untamed spirit can be a challenge in the feminized and tamed society we live in. Therefore it can be very beneficial and supportive to connect to this spirit in a group of like minded men. The depth of the mature masculine spirit you can experience in a group of like minded men is unique.
In my facilitation I use tools from different sources in my own unique way. I am not characterized by one toolbox. I use techniques which enable me to work “out of the box” with my participants. I prefer to work like there is no box. My style of facilitation is characterized by sharpness, humour, depth, and a “no bullshit” approach. I aim to go right to the essence of an issue, and seeing through the stories we all tell ourselves. I follow my intuition in the practices and interventions I apply.
When it comes to development, our whole being is involved. All qualities of perception, sensing, intuiting, and thinking are working together to facilitate a process for the best possible result for an individual or group. What fulfills me in my work as a facilitator, are the change, the relaxation, and the results I see in the people I work with. Seeing people regain their motivation, change their perspective, experiencing a new burst of energy make it worth it.
Since five years, I organize Retreats on Ibiza. Mainly with Hiking, Yoga en Mindfulness. I discovered men’s work three years ago through my partner. She recommended me to start reading David Deida, one of the groundbreaking Icons in the movement of men’s work. I felt I wanted to invite more masculinity in my life, being used to be surrounded by Ibiza Goddesses, the strong, empowered women of Ibiza.
I also discovered the work of Ton van der Kroon, especially his book “The Return of the King”. This book inspired me to visit a men’s retreat with Ton in Belgium. About the same time, I started a HeartIQ circle work facilitators training in Holland. I soon discovered the healing and strong practise to sit with brothers in a circle, and work specifically with embodiment. To literally go from the stories in our minds, to what happened to us in the past, to real life sensations in the the body, while being witnessed by authentic presence from other men. I am in awe of the magical transformation that can occur in the circle, with these practices. Also, the possibility that through the release of for example, aggression and anger, these emotions can be accepted and easier integrated into everyday life and in relationships. I used all of these experiences in my first novel: The Wisdom keeper. A subtle play between the masculine and the feminine is integrated into this hero’s tale. I feel a strong pull to offer retreats on Ibiza for Men. At the same time I love to keep on learning from participating in and facilitating men’s circles.
