Wild at Heart BASIC is Wild at Heart Boot Camp led by John Eldredge and his team through video session in your local area.
A man needs a deeper understanding of his masculine heart—and why God made him just like that. What if those deep desires in our hearts are telling us the truth, revealing to us the lives we were meant to live? A man must know he is powerful; he must know he has what it takes. The way we handle the heart is everything. Basic is not a retreat about the “seven things a man ought to do to be a nicer guy.” It is a four-day quest into the recovery of a man’s masculine soul, the release of a man’s heart—his passions and his true nature—all given him by God.

That's the last thing any man needs. The reason most messages for men ultimately fail is simple: they ignore what is deep and true to a man's heart and try to shape him up through pressure and various forms of compliance. Not this. This weekend is an honest, no bs trek into the deep passions and desires of a man's heart, into the healing of the wounds he's taken in this battle, into the realm of fatherhood and sex and God and calling – life as it was meant to be lived. Through the sessions, the times of quiet reflection, the movies, the adventures and the downtime, you will discover something profound about the heart of God and the heart he gave you as a man. Those who come say it is one of the greatest weekends of their entire life. ________________________________________ Audience Due to the intimate and personal nature of the content, the Wild at Heart BASIC Boot Camp cannot be viewed as a father/son event.
