Masculine Feminine Ascension Retreat
I’m ESCAPING to BALI to chase the sun and run my first ever MASCULINE FEMININE ASCENSION RETREAT next month.
You watch me on the street – cool and quick-witted – for a one minute approach, but I have learned more about my over-reaching, my need for validation, my inability to relax around others, and my need to develop a steady sense of abundance, during prolonged GROUP TRIPS than I have from approaching on the street. BY FAR.
Street approaching is like learning to navigate around a strange city, while most of my students are ultimately looking to become locals – around women, and in their own bodies. If street approaching is like sprinting (with weak legs,) this retreat is an endurance program to give you the strength for any obstacle course you can encounter. In an approach video, all you see is what happens in the approach; but how many of those approaches have turned into dates? How many of those dates were smooth?
What we don’t get to train on most workshops is the actual date, or the courtship process, or what happens in the bedroom, or the subtle date dynamics where you can’t hide from being yourself anymore. There is an entire untapped world of relationships that we need to practice in order to become men. In developing this side of ourselves, approach can become an extension of your ability to read others and understand yourself in subtle-relationship. Get out of the pharmacy and become a surgeon.
The Travel Bum BALI workshop is a 2 weeklong premium luxury experience for men and women. Guys and Gals will live together, practicing non-dual realization, white tantra, shamanic rituals, Zen meditation, while undergoing a profound in-nature spiritual journey. This experience is designed to cut out your interpersonal anxiety in a fundamental way, opening your heart and mind to the opposite sex, truly and deeply. You will penetrate hidden parts of yourself, necessary to resolve your male female conflict.
You will also experience a sample of the Travel Bum lifestyle, journeying through South East Asia with Travel Bum himself. “There are no words to describe the male bonding that takes place on a Travel Bum workshop. This alone is very restorative for many of my students who are still bonding as boys – not men – and who have not had proper mentors from childhood. Around other determined men, what happens is that you naturally redefine your social boundaries, simultaneously developing autonomy and social comfort, seeing past your paralyzing habits. In this workshop, we do this with both our brothers and our sisters. It’s a headfuck, a heartfuck, and a healing journey.” – Andrew
Whether you spark a connection with one of the girls on the retreat or a Swedish girl traveling through Bali, you will learn a shitload about yourself around women.
We will undergo local healing rituals, visit sacred temples, learn the arts of tantric massage, learn from Travel Bum’s 2000+ dates and be exposed to his 25 years of Zen and non-duality training. Additionally, we will attend local festivals, and lose ourselves to the delights of the Balinese cuisine, music and dance traditions. There will be hikes to the hidden waterfalls, beautiful forests and tropical beaches that are only a scooter ride away from our villas. There will also be down-time to reflect, soak up some Indonesian sun by the pool or treat yourself to a spa and massage. Or go surfing!
In-field approaching will happen only as an outgrowth of a deeper sense of naturalness and non-dual immersion. Approach time will be reserved for OCCASIONAL visits to town and for night-club and beach club excursions. Travel Bum is devoted to stripping away unconscious protective mechanisms and healing ourselves in a fundamental way. Meeting new people is natural behavior as you overcome the doubts you have about yourself.
On this retreat, you are invited to wake up from your isolated consciousness. You are invited to wake up. Paradoxically, we wake into subtle connection and unified relationships by developing independence, autonomy, boundaries, and self-definition. Here you are freer to discover a unified awareness with others, in the precise places where you have created the most separation. We will go beyond any seduction or pick up workshop.

Learn how to communicate in a totally connected way.
Openness is not an attitude. The mind can actually re-wire the ego’s protective patterns. We will practice this including body transparency, making “social-freedom” exercises redundant or nonsense.
Ever wonder why you’re actually nervous around others? You’re afraid of others because your unconscious mind is split from your conscious mind. The unconscious mind is just your body: the blood knows where to go. The lungs know to breathe. The stomach digests. Realize yourself as your entire body and break the mental reverb due to this split.
From cracking jokes to calling her out on her bullshit, to coming up with spontaneous and creative thoughts, to getting her number, to careful approach technique, to social intelligence, to sexual escalation, we will use the practices of steadying the mind, deepening the awareness and awakening subtleties of communication to arouse a totally natural and instinctive compass of social calibration.
Learn to detect and track your body’s anxiety impulses, as they paralyze or choke you up. develop the muscle memory to keep this energy where it belongs – in your centre, not with thoughts up in your head.
The self-realized body produces joy all by itself. Why are you unhappy? Your thoughts would not be a problem if there were not a body to suffer them. In this process, you realize the natural state of the body & mind as contentment. Cut out the alcohol and learn to harness this energy like your own natural ego-softening cocktail.
With the use of over 30 non-duality exercises, we learn to feel and mirror the other peron’s awareness, emotional and physical reality, and we come home to a shared sense of experience. The attunement to a COMMON GROUND brings us home to the relaxedness and spontaneity that we have around friends and family. No one is a stranger anymore.
I had been to 2 Workshops before coming to TB Coaching, and I can genuinely say that this is a life-changing workshop. I'm so glad I decided to go here.
There is nothing like this anywhere else. Andrew's coaching and dating come from a place of happiness. I've been through other workshops before, that the coaches have this negative aura surrounding them. It seems like they don't even care about what you are getting as a student.
The one month workshop was life changing. I had no idea how much I didn't know about myself and my shadows and how that was affecting my relationships with not only women I would meet but also family, friends and workmates. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It was next level man. Andrew and Joe really know what they are doing.
“Every solution to connecting with women is mere strategy. Every solution is a trick. The one exception is the moment you don’t feel separate from each other. How much longer are you gonna wait for that to happen?”
Andrew was a fashion photographer, the world’s highest paid dating coach, a Zen Monk; friends called him “the real most interesting man in the world.” He has a specialty in using 25 years of meditation to help men and women break down their sense of interpersonal anxiety to have an unconsciously unified connection. Andrew is a certified teacher in non-dual meditation and embodiment psychotherapy in The Realization Process of Non-Duality. He was famous for a web series called The Travel Bum Show, devoted to learning the dating customs and social dynamics of different cultures around the world. It had millions of views and inspired many men across the globe.
Joseph has always been devoted to communication and deep spiritual discovery. He was a visual artist and a cinematographer who eventually couldn’t resist committing himself to his calling: guiding men and women to find their natural and unimpeded state of being. Friends and clients refer to him as a life study, with an incredible power to see things (beneath and within) that the average mind will never penetrate. Combining 6 years of daily zen practice with interpersonal healing, Joseph is known for transmitting rich insight and new perspectives.
