TGOM Inner Alchemy

The Gathering of Men is a brotherhood based in the Netherlands that offers both an online and offline community, workshops, and retreats for men who want to connect with other men in a supportive and inspiring way to learn how to live a more healthy masculine life. Not just an organization, therapy class, or a company, but a community and a movement that has the potential to positively shape the way men show up for themselves, others, and the world around them.


TGOM asked me to film their 4-day transformational retreat Inner Alchemy in Portugal and use the footage to tell the story of what The Gathering of Men stands for: brotherhood, connection, self-knowledge and expansion.
