The FIGHT WEEKEND, hosted by Jake Hamilton and the FIGHT CREW, is open to a limited group of 12 men who want to depart “business as usual” and enter into a sacred space known throughout tribal cultures as “initiatory experience” where we can make agreement with our story and become acquainted with death. This is an opportunity to experience what it means to be a man, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. There are no participation trophies, no medals for effort, there is no sensitivity training or tests of endurance, this weekend is about connecting your story to your life, the story God gave you and intended you to live with all of it’s beauty and brokenness, it’s victories and failures. There are tools for this, not just ideas and concepts that leave us feeling more shame and guilt about how we aren’t “doing enough” or simply aren’t “good enough”. We will dismantle these ideas and replace lies with truth, despair with hope, and loneliness with meaningful connections. So prepare yourself because when you arrive there will be no sitting on the sidelines, no spectating, you dive in head first, you risk and when you do, we promise, you will walk away renewed, strengthened, challenged and forever changed by your experience.
WHAT TO EXPECT + WHAT THE COST INCLUDES
Your $1500 registration fee includes food and lodging for the weekend. You will be emailed more detailed description of your stay once you have registered. Your registration DOES NOT include flights. We will provide pickup to and from the airport to our location for the weekend. There will be a private community set up for each FIGHT WEEKEND so you can coordinate with other men leading up to and following the event. Please bring extra money (cash) for excursions and outings during the weekend.
We have designed an immersive and formative experience that will help you identify your pain, make sense of your story, and define a path forward all in the midst of like-minded men who are radically pursuing the same thing from their own unique perspective. We will be using tools from several experienced sources all with the goal of helping you fully engage your story so that you can confidently and courageously show up to your daily life. Every man will be required to bring a written 800 – 1200 word significant and marking story from their own lives that they will share in radical vulnerability before this group of men. You will receive more information and instructions for this assignment and preparation videos once you register. Throughout the rest of the day we will enjoy meals together, teaching, as well as local excursions that will provide some adventure and fun for our time together.
WHAT DOES MY REGISTRATION INCLUDE?
Registration is available to the first 12 MEN who make a non-refundable deposit of $500 (the rest is due two weeks prior to the start of the event) or pay in full for their spot. This covers your lodging for the weekend, dinner Thursday Night, Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on Friday and Saturday, a light Breakfast Sunday Morning, as well as a beautiful location for our gatherings and all materials you will need for your journey with us.
