Works in Investment Management

‘Before going on my first retreat I had lost touch with what it meant to be a man. I was disconnected from myself, struggling in relationships and my career and scared of failing as a father.
But the fact that I’ve now done three consecutive retreats says it all. The safe space that is created
through acceptance, vulnerability, honesty and integrity is like nothing I’ve ever experienced.’
I’ve read countless books and wasted thousands on coaches but I can safely say these weekends are
infinitely more valuable. When sitting in circle you will be part of a place where there is no
judgement or criticism, only equality and support for you and what you are going through.’
‘So if you’re on the fence about booking onto a retreat, don’t be. Take the leap of faith and examine
your ‘stuff’ with other men who will stand by your side as your equal. You will leave the retreat
feeling 10 feet tall and with a group of brothers who will go through anything with you. I have
genuine friends for life who I would do anything for without any hesitation. I’m now better
equipped as a father to help my own son grow to be a mature, strong and loving human being.’
‘Each time I go on one of the retreats it replenishes my hope for all men - that we can rediscover the
healthy masculine that lies within us and set an example for the next generation of strong mature

Ex Paratrooper now Professional PT

"After the first initial sit down meet and greet, i was not fully committed to share any of my worries. However it became apparent that there was a sense of belonging. To be guided through a series of tasks, building confidence and cohesion between the group of men.

We ended, with what i can only describe as a magical feeling on the Sunday afternoon, with 19 new friends for life.

If your willing to shed whatever you have to move forward, then this is exactly what you will receive. Like a snake shedding its skin, you will be reborn as the new you. If you want to make a positive impact on your life, to make a change and to make a real difference. Then sign up to one of these events.

"I participated recently in a warrior workshop hosted by The CIP Project. It was the best single experience i have had in my life, beautifully brought together by the team who facilitated with great support, skill and understanding. They were meeting me in my own shoes. I left with deep connecting friendships with all the men i met on the workshop, including the facilitators. I take all i have learned forward with respect and honour to all my new life experiences"

What an inspiring weekend. Michael and all the team at The CIP Project made the weekend so powerful, so meaningful, with such a real feeling of brotherhood. Who'd have thought you could spend the weekend with a bunch of strangers and feel so connected with them ? All i can say is go for it, you wont regret it!

PT and Contestant from Series 4 of SAS Who Dares Wins

"Upon arriving i had no idea what to expect. I find it difficult to open up about demons in my closet, but within the first day spent with the group i began to understand what it was all about.

I opened up about some issues I have had to deal with all of my life and by gently opening up about them i felt the pressure leave my shoulders on the final day.

The Sweat Lodge was the highlight for me, pushing myself beyond my mental and physical barriers.

I can guarantee if you take part in one of these weekends with Mike and the team you will feel reborn"
