About the Event

This study group will be a meaningful field of remembrance, inspiration, deepening and integration even for those who are already years or decades deep.

We consider the group forming to be ‘advanced’ as each participant already arrives with a foundational understanding of the cultural landscape of our times and are already active lifelong students of leadership, culture and/or embodied humanity.

The culture of our group will have a particular flavour of devotion, deep listening, attentiveness, willingness and seasonal rebirth.

Many of those participating in this study group will be on the path to becoming some of the forefront cultural leaders/contributors/dreamers of the western world in our time. In this way these weekly gatherings can be considered and met as the raw frontier of cultural emergence in the western world.

As you may have guessed this study group isn’t just a study group, its a training ground, a watering ground, a growing ground, a field of remembering, a place of deep reflection, a field of true presence and deep listening, and an opportunity to deepen further into your role as a cultural leader, an emerging elder and as an active and integral dreamer of cultural emergence.

If you hear the call, and know this is for you, It would be a great pleasure for you to join us.



Cultural leadership is the act of guiding, stewarding and embodying a community's and a peoples cultural evolution, preserving its essence while nurturing the emergence of new expressions.

This is an inter-generational relationship with community, place, and culture that cultivates a sense of pride, identity, belonging, and ecological harmony, and ensures the continuity of the culture for future generations.

In these times turning to face and deepen into Cultural Leadership is a profound and beautiful act of human love and deep listening.



We’ll come together every Tuesday for 6 Weeks and each week we’ll deeply explore a different key pillar of Cultural Leadership and come together in a circle of embodied remembering.

This will be done in a way that you will experience as both simple, grounding and gently stretching.

There will be a weekly resource/s that everyone contemplates deeply between sessions and this will form the basis of our engaging study group time together. Our study group sessions are masterfully woven together by threads of forum, personal insights, shared revelations, a subtle experience of ceremonial gathering and a short transmission by Matthew.

The field we create together each week will be deeply reflective and transformational in nature, and the sacred context of our gatherings and the greater meaning of why we are coming together in this way will be at the forefront of each study group session.


WHY A STUDY GROUP? A note from Matthew…

There’s a few reasons why I’ve chosen a study group as the format of this journey….here are 3 of them.

1 - After the collective deepening initiated by the global challenges of the last few years, it has become really apparent to me that, like myself, so many of my peers and students have listened, grown, deepened and now have A NEW QUALITY of unique insight and experience to bring to the table. A study group is a place where the different geniuses, magicks and listenings of all has a place to be brought forward in service to the alchemical journey of the group.

2 - As we come deeper into the Aquarian age, into a time of thriving inter-dependence, and as more and more individuals find their way through initiation and awakening to deeper listening and solid ground within themselves, new learning, development and initiation forms must emerge that meet, serve and challenge us from this new ground, and in doing so take us to whole new places that top-down learning hierarchies aren't always able to.

3 - Amongst other courses and immersions I’ve delivered in these last 2 years I have also led 4 circle-style emergent wisdom journeys that have been profound, expansive and deeply moving group experiences to be part of. Im ready for more.



This study group will be a memorable and uplifting experience of learning and remembering that will be of great service to your personal journey over the coming months, years and decades.

In our time together your understanding of cultural leadership and your role within our wider communities will ripen and mature and important and guiding revelations that touch new places inside you will naturally emerge from within this collective field.

If you're someone who loves journeying at the emergent frontier and in a deeply present and audacious group field - you will find yourself met here.



Emerging Cultural Leaders / Leaders of Cultural Emergence Lifelong students of culture and/or leadership and/or embodiment Students of Matthew’s teachings since July 2020.



Matthew Liam Gardner is a Master Teacher, Mentor, and Facilitator of initiatory journeys.

Walking the path of something like an Emerging Elder of the Western World, Matthew is directly tapped into a unique stream of both timely and timeless wisdom.

With his captivating ability to weave together mystery teachings, mythos, and deep seeing, Matthew invites us deeper into the experience of our lives and our destiny, to rekindle our ancient relationship with the land, lineage and culture, to rediscover the extraordinary stories that underpin our existence and to rise up from within ourselves.

Through his courses, in-person immersions, and ceremonial journeys, Matthew guides us on journeys of personal and spiritual transformation towards a deeper understanding of the mythos of the emergent moment, the great story and ourselves. His teachings are both revolutionary and revelatory, offering a path of self-discovery, deep leadership, embodiment and genuine human intimacy.

Crossroads with Matthew are always nourishment for the ancient soul. If you join him in a workshop, immersion, course, ceremony or initiatory journey you find yourself in deep presence to your own timeless wisdom, your own sensory belly, your own personal legend and your own natural being-ness.

Through his work as a teacher, mentor, facilitator and public speaker, Matthew helps people all around the world anchor into the earth, feed the fire in their heart, soften their belly, strengthen their spine, let their wild soul come alive, embody what it really means to be humans...and remember who they truly are.

There will be over 120 hours worth of learning materials for you to explore and consider should you choose to.
