POWERFUL AND LOVING
and our unique culture...
From a personal need...
"Even though I had decades of experience as Sensei, facilitator and therapist helping countless boys and men...
...I still struggled in my own relationship.
I sought out coaching, therapy, men's groups and even plant medicines.
They all helped, to a degree, but also left a critical gap...
How can I realize my potential
as a leader who is also a great
lover, partner, father and friend?
As I evaluated all of the communities and resources I had, I asked myself...
What kind of support do I need to
thrive and grow long term?

Called to a mission...
In 2016, inspired by the central paradox expressed by the great Martin Luther King, Jr., POWERFUL AND LOVING (PAL) was born...
"POWER without love
is reckless and abusive and...
LOVE without power
is sentimental and anaemic."
A new paradigm
(This ain't your daddy's men's group)
The idea was to gather diverse and dedicated men with a common purpose...
...to encourage and challenge one another to become both POWERFUL and LOVING.
So we can each grow into whole-hearted leaders who thrive together and bring our fullest selves to our most important relationships.
...we brought together the best relational technologies from every community, growth focused modality, and leadership training we knew to create an integrative 5 Element framework for a lifetime of deep learning.
And as we grow, we are intent on sustaining a vibrant culture within a lasting village, both intimate and international, online and in person.
