Are you...

  • Dissatisfied with your life despite having achieved your goals?
  • Feeling like something important is missing in your life but you don't know what?
  • Restless and bored, just going through the motions in life?

  • Disengaged in your intimate relationships? 

  • Disconnected from your purpose?

  • Afraid you will be filled with regret at the end of your life?

We find that...

Most men, ages 45 and older, find themselves in a transition period where the achievements and successes in life they have accomplished are no longer making them happy. They feel they need to keep their struggles to themselves, to work through them alone, while keeping up the mask of being "fine". Some go as far as creating a secret life in order to get their needs met. 


There is this feeling that they will arrive at the end of their life with regret and bitterness for the risks they didn't take to make themselves happy.

Does this sound like you?

Is this the soundtrack of your thoughts?
"It's too late for me to make changes. It'll be fine. Man up!"

"Am I going to throw everything away just because I am unhappy?"


There comes a time in every man's journey where he is called into greater leadership in his life.


This is a time to gain clarity about your purpose and find a path forward to step into your full potential. This path can be filled with mountains and valleys, forks in the road, and obstacles blocking the way.


Discovering that there is an inner guide that accompanies you along this journey opens the door to the adventure...

The problem is...

Most men start to focus on making the wrong changes:

the new car

the new girlfriend

the new body

the new house in the tropics

the new yoga practice

All of them are excuses to run away from your life! 

This puts the crisis in
"mid-life crisis"

But the REAL problem is...

You are looking outside yourself for answers that can only be found within, and in doing so miss the opportunity to tap into the inner wisdom that the Hero Within has to offer.


Connecting to the Hero Within will give you:

  • Clarity on who you are, what you want, and a vision to guide you

  • Courage to take your next step

  • Wisdom to make the choices that are right for you

  • Strength to let go of what is not working

  • Freedom to follow your bliss

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned
so as to have the life that is waiting for us"

- Joseph Campbell -

Finding the Hero Within is an immersive three-day virtual retreat for men only to explore, discover, and clarify who you are and what you want.


We provide a safe space for you to find answers to the questions that need to be answered now. 

  • A curriculum designed to meet you where you are and guide you in a journey to awaken the Hero Within.
  • Presented in 2 hour daily sessions over three days.
  • Guided by professional coaches who have the life experience and wisdom to help you find your answers, you will work on creating your plans and goals.

We provide the roadmap, the vehicle, and the necessary tools for your journey to awaken the Hero Within. 


DAY 1 - Departure

We kick off our three days together with learning how Joseph Campbell's work, The Hero's Journey, can be applied to your life to help you understand why you can no longer ignore the sense of restlessness you are experiencing. We explore the stages of the Journey and determine what stage you are in and map out your path forward to access your Hero Within.


DAY 2 - Initiation

Together, we acknowledge that this is the "hard" part of the journey to finding your Hero Within. Now that you have answered the call to adventure, the road of trials awaits you. You will discover that everything that is blocking your path forward can be met with courage as you access the inner strength and wisdom that is already inside of you. We help you slay the dragon so that you can reap the reward - your answers to the questions, "Who am I?" and "What do I want?".


DAY 3 - Return

Having discovered the "boon" in the Initiation stage, you prepare to return to your world armed with the self-knowledge you need to move forward. You have connected with and accessed your Hero Within as your internal guide. Today is where we put it all together to create the blueprint for taking action to create the life you want to be living, not the life everyone else wants you to live. We culminate our three days together by celebrating you, your Hero Within, and your decision to "follow your bliss."


You'll leave the retreat with a vision of your future that aligns with your values and purpose and an implementation plan for creating a life of meaning, joy and fulfillment.

Here is a small sample of what our past clients are saying about the Hero Within

"I’m happier than I've been in years"

"As a result of learning about my energy levels and the choices I have available to me in each moment, I've been able to make tremendous progress in my relationship with my wife. I no longer react to situations in frustration and anger, but am able to calmly reflect on my options and choose my response that is more aligned with who I am. I've learned I'm a highly caring man, who wants to provide the best for my family in all I do. Since working with Carrie, my wife and I are no longer in the process of divorcing, but are actively working together to appreciate each other's point of view and cooperate better than we ever have in the past. I’m happier than I've been in years."

"Creates a sense of safety, so you can share with what is truly going on"

I hired Carrie as an Executive Coach and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.  My life has been transformed personally and professionally and I contribute it to the loving, consistent support I receive from Carrie every other week. Carrie creates a sense of safety, so you can share with her what is truly going on for you and she listens with an empathetic heart.  She knows how to bring out the best in people.

"Kind, sincere and empathetic"

During a time of turmoil in my life I went looking for a coach to help me make some changes in my work/career life. I feel so fortunate to have come across Mauricio to help me transition through these big changes. I have found Mauricio to be kind, sincere and empathetic and at the same time expertly adept at his craft…. guiding and inspiring me to complete tasks and achieve my goals. Mauricio has proved to be genuinely invested in my success and I am feeling much more confident and prepared as I navigate all the new things coming my way.

"It was amazing to look back, and see how far I'd come"

I loved working with Carrie and found our time working together to have a major impact on my life. It wasn't trauma that led me to Carrie, but a need to make progress on my professional development. She was very skilled at hitting the balance between empathic listening and prodding me to make positive steps forward.

It was amazing to look back, after six sessions, and see how far I'd come in getting what I said I wanted out the outset. She's a wonderful person and a joy to work with.

"Nuevamente, Mil Gracias!"

 Mauricio, muy buenos días,

Nuevamente mil gracias por tener esa iniciativa tan maravillosa de estas capacitaciones que sin duda no solamente a mi, si no también a otras personas les ayudara mucho en el rumbo de su vida.

Las capacitaciones me han ayudado a cuestionarme de lo que ha sido mi vida hasta ahora, pondré en práctica todo lo que he aprendido contigo. Todo ha sido un gran aporte, el solo hecho de cuestionarnos porque estamos aquí?... algo tan simple, pero con tanta trascendencia que aveces ni vemos.

Excelente, excelente. Mil gracias!

"A lightning soul that guided me when I was in shadowed times"

I started to work with Carrie, when I was in a difficult situation after a painful separation and a tough moment in my professional life, within a hard environment far from my family and friends. Carrie is kind and loving but for the top was the feeling that my heart and emotional life were safe and in good hands. Hers is a lightning soul that guided me when I was in shadowed times.

The path we walked brought me to a place where I can see myself and my life from a perspective I was not able to see before, overloaded by the emotions – being able to know myself, being able to be more aware of who I am and being able to love who I am.
