The ultimate goal is to ignite the soul

Peace. Power. Purpose.

Peace. Power. Purpose.

As men in this society we often grow up getting told we have to be tough, to suck it up, to 'not be a pussy'. This teaches us that as men we can't share our emotions, and that we have to do it all alone.

Men's work is here to change that. To create spaces where likeminded men can safely share their struggles, get to know themselves, have fun, and step fully into life.

Inner peace. More authenticity. And a brotherhood to fall back on.

Why I'm so grateful for this work

Why I'm so grateful for this work

Why I'm so grateful for this work

My journey into men's work started with the Amsterdam-based The Gathering of Men, where I felt at home right away. Finally a space where all men are honest, supportive and driven to be a better man. A feeling of belonging hit me, and 'the work' has never left me since.

Over the course of a few years, men's work played a big part of shaping me into the man I am today. I've become stronger. More confident. At ease with myself, my emotions and whatever life throws at me. A more present and loving partner, and a man of my word. I am now dedicated to facilitating these gatherings for other men so they can have a similar experience and become their stronger, more authentic self.

Currently I facilitate two offerings on a monthly basis: Regular Gatherings and the Deep Dive journey.


Regular Gatherings

A low key, no commitment entry level event to get a taste & see what it can do.
- Get to know yourself on a deeper level
- Connect with other brothers
- Awaken to your full potential


The regular gatherings are a 2,5hr session that are meant for men who are feeling the call to give more authentic expression to themselves. The regular gatherings create opportunity for men to show up, share, energize & decompress. The perfect place for a first introduction to the work and community.



Deep Dive Journey
A 6-month journey designed to guide you back to yourself, dive deep into themes like ownership and sexuality, and create a container for transformation. Combines a physical gathering each month with online check-ins, coaching and accountability.
- Feel the power of a committed brotherhood
- Full support and a solid structure for lasting change
- Deep work: constellations, shadow work and challenges

This is the big one. Many men before have already called it life-changing. I'm looking forward to help guide you to a life lived more fully, and to a stronger, more authentic you.
