What Can I Expect

Feel the power of brotherhood as we dive deep into a range of processes for connection to self, others, heart wisdom and higher self.



All life has an intelligent natural design for health and thriving. Yet the modern man has deviated profoundly from the true forces and practices behind true health. Realign your mind and body with the principles of natural health and activate life force and will power in your being. We will be exploring a range of engaging exercises and practices for strength and abundant health including: Qi Gong, animal movement, reflex & coordination games, balance, strength, and mindful movement.

Presence is freedom. Nature is life.

Connect with breath, body and the fundamental nature of life and return to the peace and simplicity of the present moment. 

This retreat is infused with guided mindful awereness and abundant moments of embodiment and connection to self, heart and nature. 


To be a whole and strong man is a gift to oneself and society. To be a loving and conscious men is a blessing and a duty. During this retreat we will also be exploring the nature of our relationships to others, specially to women and children. Integrity and the role of the conscious/tribal men will be shared and explored to assist you in creating healthy, respectful and love-filled relationships.

Views of Nature



Through the power of truth and vulnerability we will be peeling away layers of the ego and steeping whole-heartedly into the truth of Self. Brake through self-imposed limitations and self-doubt and go to new heights of your potential and vision. Together and in fertile soil we will be exploring powerful tools for self-awareness and transformation and igniting our fire for self-evolution and collective thriving.

Marko has a long history of living in and exploring wild places in nature around the world. He has survived and thrived in the extremes of nature, living in the ice and snow of a Norwegian winter, the high altitudes of the Himalayas, the lush jungles of India, Brazil and northern Queensland, the dry and hot desert of Egypt and central Australia. He experienced these environments in the rawest form, mostly with nothing but himself, his trust and love for the natural world and his faith in the body's ability to adapt and grow strong.


He firmly believes that the natural world is our true home and our path to discover our innate strength and capability. He had many profound experiences that led him on a path to discover his highest potential and to seek ways of helping people to reconnect with nature to heal, nourish and find peace, contentment, love and enlightenment.

Marko spent many years studying ancient and new practices around the world that bring us into balance so that we can live in greater harmony with the natural world:

- Yoga: trained in Norway, completed teacher training in Dharamshala, India and has taught classes in Egypt, Norway, Philippines, Australia and India.

- Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Kung Fu training in Wudang China

- Reiki 1st and 2nd degree in India

- Bio energetic healing in Norway

- Kick boxing, practiced for 12 years and taught at a high- level for 5 years in Norway

- Breath work facilitator since 2012
