Join our Pacific Northwest retreat to source your own wild meat, connect with your primal roots, and step into manhood as our ancestors would have done.
Civilization is a huge blessing... but it comes at the cost of fewer rites of passage and fewer ways to express healthy masculinity.
If your inner warrior wants OUT (beyond paintball and crossfit)... then you're ready for the hunt.
This is what initiation creates...

There is no therapy, method, or program as old or as profound as sacred hunting.
Hunting is older than humanity itself. Tribes of men would bond around the fire, share laughs, and provide meat for their loved ones and community.

Join this hunt to connect with the process of killing an animal in order to eat, connecting with yourself, your brothers, and remembering an old way of living.
On this hunt, we will connect with traditional Chinook cultural practices, forage for wild mushrooms and enjoy a medicine journey before the hunting begins.

- Kyle Kingsbury
