It's time to ASCEND
You're here to lead.
To find out what you're made of.
To be a man that others look up to.
It won’t be easy.
There are no handouts.
No free passes.
Your mountain is calling - are you ready to ascend it?
No matter how good your life is, you know it can be better.
You've climbed your mountain peaks.
You know a thing or two about what great men are made of.
You're proven you have what it takes.
You've had success.
You've built discipline.
People trust you because they know you're committed to being a good man.
But despite all of your accomplishments, some part of you wonders...
"Is this really it? With all this striving - is this as good as it gets?"
You've reached your apex only to find emptiness at the top.
Despite all of your wins, nothing has actually changed.
You know there is more in you.
More to experience.
More to overcome.
More to discover.
You sense there is a new peak somewhere in the distance, unlike any you've climbed before.
Where true fulfillment, freedom, and peace await.
You're wise enough to know this path is going to require an entirely new approach.
How you got here won't get you where you want to go.
Not more knowledge.
Not more effort.
Not more skills.
You understand there is a whole new version of yourself awaiting to be unleashed.
A man who is deeply present.
Who's consciousness is refined like a sword.
Who owns his power without apology and is here to make a massive impact in the world.
An embodied masculine leader who is committed to giving his deepest gifts and living life on his own terms.
We get it because we've been there.
We've ascended our mountains and were left asking, "What else?"
It doesn't have to be lonely at the top - you just need to climb the right mountain.
That’s why we created ASCENT.
Be honest with yourself...
You know you're here for something big.
You know you haven't tapped into your full potential.
Despite everything you've accomplished, something is still holding you back from your full power.
And you won't feel fulfilled until you've given everything you've got.
YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES:
1) You can keep living the same way - accepting your reality as "good enough" while avoiding your deepest evolution.
2) You can bet on yourself and change the course of your life forever.
Nobody can make that decision for you.
Only you can determine if you're ready to take the leap.
99% of men won't.
99% of will let fear hold them back.
But on the other side of your fear is the life you desire...
Imagine waking up each day with the energy of a warrior - ready to lead others into battle from the frontlines.
Imagine feeling confident, powerful, and free in every moment - never holding back from living into your biggest vision.
Imagine being showered with devotion from your woman everyday - as she stands in awe of the King you are.
Imagine having a brotherhood of powerful men - who pick you up when you're down and call you forward into the leader you are.
All of this is possible, but it takes the courage to do something different.
To drop what you think you know and embrace an entirely new way of leading your life.
To receive tools, practices, and support from other men who have walked the path.
It requires you to start your ASCENT.
DURING THIS 4-DAY RETREAT YOU WILL LEARN...
WHO YOU ARE, AND WHO YOU'RE BECOMING
You will receive direct feedback from men who have walked the path - challenging you to step into leading from your core masculine power.
You will dive deep into understanding who you are at your core and how to lead your life from your unique essence.
PREPARING FOR YOUR ASCENT
You will be expertly guided on the tools, practices, and mindset necessary for your ascension, while simultaneously letting go of the deadweight holding you back.
WEATHERING LIFE'S STORMS
You will learn how to become like the mountain through rigorous embodiment practice.
You will strengthen your nervous system's capacity and become the grounded, resilient leader the world is dying for.
THE POWER OF BROTHERHOOD
Climbing your mountain requires trust in yourself and in your brothers.
You will be challenged and pushed to your absolute edge, forging an unbreakable bond with a brotherhood of men who have your back.
Each step you take will be a step they take with you.
EMBRACING UNCERTAINTY, BUILDING RESILIENCY
On the mountain, anything can happen.
You will learn how to charge from the front - becoming a man who leads himself, his woman, and his life with power and grace.
You will cultivate the strength to confront your fears head on and then ascend beyond them.

After the dissolution of his marriage and architecture career, Nic set out on a journey of healing and discovery. Guided by a deep knowing that he had the power to create the life of his dreams, he surrendered to his shadows and dove into the heart of his own despair.
