About the Event

You’re invited to be part of a sacred and sincere gathering of Devotional Men in a Celtic Roundhouse, in a Wild Welsh Valley for an immersive journey into the Holy Power that lives in the Primordial Root and the Mystery Realms of Sacred Form.

Through ritual and explorative embodiment practices...and in the candlelit field of ancient kinship, soul initiation, grounded presence and embodied love...we'll touch those deep and rarely touched places in our beings and then embody, embrace and rest into those forms of ourselves that we have repressed and denied.

These are essential reclaimings a man must journey as he finds his way into integrated manhood and deeper maturity.

These are essential integrations for a man to move through the world with grounded, embodied power and integrity.

Along the way we'll journey rare mystery teachings, original wisdoms, and subtly attune to many of the forgotten 'medicines of man'.

This weekend will be led by Matthew Liam Gardner and if you manage to find your way into that Celtic roundhouse for this gathering you will experience an intimate, meaningful and catalysing journey that will ripple through a lifetime and serve you deeply as you step into even more of all that you have always been.



This is for the men who feel the great love that lives inside them and are ready to embody even more of that love, in all its forms, in this season and the next.

This weekend speaks straight to the wild, devoted hearts of the men ready to drop into a grounded, ancient, embodied knowing and rest into the living power waiting in their primordial root.

Come brother...we are ready now.



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 extraordinary medicine of the other and the beauty of 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.
