June 16-20, 2020

Come discover your true nature in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming with the support of like-minded men. There’s no better way to reconnect with and learn to trust your instincts than encountering novel experiences. Think of this as an adventure specifically designed to bring out your most powerful traits.

Retreat Experience

We intentionally do not share our itinerary so that you can let go of a “need to know” mindset and embrace the present moment and flow of each day. While we personalize our activities according to the learning goals of our participants, we lead with an overarching framework — the four directions or compass — to guide each day of a WYLD West experience.

  • The East – a clean canvas - understanding the nature of your leadership through strengths, values, and creative vision

  • The South – structure and framework - defining our strengths and understanding how our environments and relationships nurture or inhibit our true nature

  • The West  – discernment – creating intentionality and prioritization with our time, talent, tribe, and territory

  • The North – action and accountability – aligning who we are with what we do – setting sustainable benchmarks for success and well-being

Sample activities: intuitive horse work, herding cattle, fly-fishing, shooting, creative arts, archery, guided meditation.

What’s Included

  • Meals

  • Lodging

  • All western activities and equipment
    (horses, gun/fishing rentals)

  • Learning resources


Lodging is included at HF Bar Ranch. Tapping into the “campy” experience, assume you will have cabin mates. Everyone will have their own beds and plenty of space. Think of this as glamping — beautiful, rustic cabins surrounded by nature with a comfortable sleeping and bathroom set up. This stunning property embodies the charm of the west, but it’s important to note this is not a luxury resort. Please bring anything additional you might want or let us know if you have any specific needs and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Meals are included. The ranch’s menus are always health-conscious while also incorporating the comfort of western cuisine. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions so we can plan accordingly.

Travel Arrangements: Buffalo is a 6 hour drive from Denver. The two closest airports to the Ranch are Sheridan (30 minutes away) or Gillette (60 minutes away). These are small airports so there are limited flights available — book your flights asap! We will arrange transportation to and from the airport to the Ranch.

*** Please note we recommend flying into Sheridan, but if you fly into this airport, you need to book your ticket via Denver Air Connection and will need to check in / re-check your bag in Denver. Make sure you have enough time between flights.


Cancellation Policy

WYLD requires a 30-day advanced notice for cancelations but will NOT charge you if someone fills your spot.

This experience is profound and stimulating. A unique approach to changing your perspective for the better. Both intellectually and emotionally stimulating, if the opportunity presents itself, go!
