A multi-day transformational journey,
altering your reality forever.

What is Shakabuku really like?

A swift spiritual kick to the head,
altering your reality forever.

Minnie Driver, Gross Pointe Blank

Impossible to convey until you experience it yourself,
but watch the video below to get some highlights.

It's called Shakubuku

Previously only available to Fortune 500 executive teams during their ‘extreme retreats’.
We have now opened up our Shakubuku Immersion to individual leaders.

Shakubuku is a multi-day transformational experience that gathers an extraordinary group of people, entrepreneurs, change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world.

This is a highly personal journey that you make with others as you delve into the deepest fabric of who you are, those pieces that belong to you and no one else, making you the awesome individual you are.

Once you fully understand the source of your awesomeness on a mental emotional and spiritual level, you are empowered to freely tap into it and have an even greater impact.

Your source of awesomeness – maybe you think it doesn’t exist.  It does.  You have been indoctrinated to believe something else.

Hear me clearly – YOU ARE FUCKING AWESOME.

We created Shakubuku to help people experience what that feels like and then learn to live it every day.

Shakubuku is time to examine the deepest core of who you are, what you believe, what you see in the world and how can have the greatest impact.  All during an epic journey and surrounded by amazing people.

Shakubuku is the door of experience.  Choose to walk through it and your legendary self will find you.

Shakubuku takes place several times a year in locations across the world and each is unique. You will receive powerful training, profound mind shifts, deep connections, incredible adventures and unique opportunities to multiply your impact and give back to humanity.  You will play an even bigger game, meet future members of your life tribe and significantly expand your ability to tackle bold ideas.

The Journey is a Mystery

Experience is the best teacher.
We don’t want to spoil any surprises.

You select the location (see below)
but the epic experiences will remain a mystery until you live them!

Upcoming Shakubuku Experiences

The locations below are your beginning and end point of the experience. What happens in between? Only we know. Be prepared for a challenge and epic adventure with some amazing people.

Shakubukus fees range between $1,500 and $35,000 per person.  This is all-inclusive except your travel cost to get to the start point. 

During the application process, we will make sure you are a good fit, cover different experiences and fees for Shakubukus.

Generally, the higher the cost, the more ‘extreme’ the nature of the Shakubuku, mostly from a physical standpoint.  However, low cost DOES NOT necessarily mean you are getting less of a life experience.  They are simply different.  

Costs include everything.  You pay to get to our location, we take care of everything else.
