A multi-day transformational journey for leaders,
Shakubuku is learning and living it definition, “to bring happiness to all people by awakening them to their inherent greatness.

What is Shakabuku really like?

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

Minnie Driver, Gross Pointe Blank

Shakubuku is a spiritual journey that you will take while interacting in the awesomeness of the physical world.

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

It's called Shakubuku

We have now opened up our Shakubuku Immersion to individual leaders.

Shakubuku is the ultimate experiential executive retreat to recharge, make new connections and develop yourself into the leader you were born to be.  We use the physical world and challenges to create a spiritual journey into what is ‘impossible’.  What you believe to be ‘real’ will be put to the test.

We can make only one promise:  this experience will alter your reality forever.

A multi-day transformational experience, Shakubuku gathers extraordinary leaders, change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world.

Remember the move, The Game, with Michael Douglas?  This is as close as we can get to that kind of deep change without putting anyone in physical danger.

If you want to learn a language, immersion is known to be the best way to learn.  If you want to learn about yourself, how better than to immerse yourself in an experience that shows you what you DO, not what you THINK you do.

While experiential and physical in nature, this is a highly personal internal 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 incredible 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 create 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.

We call this your Legendary Operating System.

We created Shakubuku to help people experience what living in your Legendary Operating System – living in your most fucking awesome state – 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.

What Do I Get?


You don’t learn about resilience, you LIVE it.  You are exhausted because you are developing yourself in unimaginable ways.  Discovering strength you cannot imagine, you will tap into personal reserves you didn’t know you have.

LOS Discovery

Your Legendary Operating System is waiting to be discovered.  Frankly, you have been brainwashed.  Indoctrinated into looking at the world in a certain way, behaving in a certain way & keeping your LOS locked up and hidden.  Let us help get rid of the thick shell that is holding you back and limiting the person you SHOULD be.  Or not…

Adventure of a Lifetime

We are the only company in the world creating unique and life-changing experiences for executives.  This will be your new bar for how incredible life can be.

Feeling recharged and ready to take on the world, how do you live this every day?  Come find out!

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!

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.
