Follow your instinct
Reach for the skies

and Rise


Dear Brother, YOU are most welcome to join the European Festival of Brotherhood VI.

It’s time for us brothers to RISE UP. This year’s festival is all about RISING: coming together, connecting, sharing our wisdom and the practices from our traditions, and steadily grow to live like the men we are. To stand tall and solid, not by leaning on others or holding them down, not by pretending to be someone that we are not, but because we discover and accept who we already are. We will not make ourselves small, we will rise up until we stand and stand together.

2019 is the year of the man. And at this European Festival of Brotherhood VI we will celebrate being men. By being. By connecting. By practising our spiritual practices together. Practices like sharing by the fire, battle cry, drumming, sound meditation, tribal rugby, fire walking, sweat lodge, meditation and many more, including practices you would like to bring to the festival.

This festival is not only a great way to enhance your personal spiritual growth as a man. And not only an occasion to learn more about the different practices that are offered. But it’s also, and most of all, about true brotherhood: what does it mean to truly stand and connect as brothers, to be vulnerable and strong at the same time, to speak your truth in front of brothers, to have each other’s backs, to witness eachothers process, courage, vulnerability, power; experience brotherhood as it is meant to be.

Together with a group of enthusiastic facilitators who met during the earlier five editions the men will encourage each other at Vlierhof to safely express all your questions on life, follow ancient initiations, and learn rituals that will go easily beyond the mind. In four days we will let go of patterns of the mind that are no longer helpful, say lovingly goodbye to relations that are no longer useful, and awaken the masculine spirit within that will smile when it rains and laugh when it storms. Knowing that the masculine spirit is unshakable as the mountain, NOW is the time for you to start to fully embody your potential, so... RISE UP

For you are all welcome to join the other brothers during this sixth European Festival of Brotherhood!

***DURING THE FESTIVAL, YOU ARE INVITED TO LEAVE A DONATION FOR THE FACILITATOR'S SUPPORT***

The facilitators have agreed to generously share their talents in support of the participants free of charge – leaving it up to each participant to check for himself what would uphold the balance between receiving and giving, being conscious that receiving is infinitely greater than giving. Some of the donations will go to the Wiebe Memorial Fund which enables men that are in financial distress and/or youngsters in youth care to participate in the next Brotherhood Festival.
