You will be guided, facilitated, directed and asked to contribute meaningfully your life experience.

Reclaim your kingdom – a warrior’s code is predicated on the uniquely put together 12 principles, which form the conscious warrior model. This ethos is about reframing the manner in which men behave, become and move through the world. The manner in which we ‘see’ ourselves and the manner in which we learn to forgive, create, release and evolve.
This program is a pragmatic and practical way to evolve our ways leveraging ancient wisdom and modern techniques (such as neuroscience, modern psychology, eastern mysticism and evolutionary psychology to mention a few) to allow us to be more connected, intelligent, adaptive, strong, inclusive and lovingly open men – to ultimately revere women and children and to learn to step humbly into our authentic power and of course revere ourselves.

Power Quotes From The Show

“Compensatory strategies are developed and cultivated when we're very young and we bring them into our adult lives and relationships. However, they don't really have a place. We don't need to behave in that extreme yet we do anyway because we're coming from a set of unconscious feelings or fears. So, when we begin to do a self-inventory, it's normal that we don't really know where to look, it's really difficult to do on our own, and we feel stuck in our trauma.” – Stefanos Sifandos
“Instead of justifying our trauma, pain, and fear as being normal parts of our lives, we need an inventory. Something that we could be taught as young people is to take regular inventory of our lives. Whether or not you think something is “wrong” with you, at the end of every day, take inventory of your life. How did you behave and think? Were you happy with your thoughts and interactions? How did you relate to others? How did you give and receive love? Did you experience pain, fear, or discomfort? What was the cause of discomfort? Have you noticed those patterns of discomfort before? We're not taught to be self-reflective or self-critical in our culture often enough.” – Stefanos Sifandos
“I don't like to say, ‘I'm stressed,' because it makes me feel weak. I'd rather say, ‘I'm scared' of something. I don't have a healthy fear with stress and underpinning that is a fear as well. To me, saying, ‘I'm stressed,' is like saying, ‘I'm not good enough to cope with what I'm producing, doing, or facing,' and I don't like that.” – Stefanos Sifandos
“What does it mean to have a yearning to actually grow and be better than you were yesterday? I don't know what it means for you; that's something you have to answer on your own. When we start paying attention to ourselves through conscious awareness, we get to learn more about ourselves but we also have to be okay with being uncomfortable. If we unpack something that's painful, there are several tools available to us that we can use: journaling, support groups, psychologists, spiritual work, or anything that resonates with you that can help. That will help you cultivate resilience in the body and in the mind.” – Stefanos Sifandos
“The desire to be self-reflective requires work and effort. Today, in contemporary times without the application of effort, we're losing the essence of who we are as men. As we've evolutionarily grown, we have become accustomed to being in involatile environments. Our bodies are made to work and the more physical work the body does, the healthier the body is.” – Stefanos Sifandos
“Too many men live in lies and we come across either shady, confused, manipulative, or untrustworthy. Why do we do that? It's because we're valuing values like status, accumulation of material goods, or how others see us over being just genuine and living in our truth. We don't even realize we're doing it and if you want to be attractive to a woman, you have to be the truth.” – Stefanos Sifandos
