What is BASIC?

Wild at Heart BASIC is Wild at Heart Boot Camp led by John Eldredge and his team through video session in your local area.

Why do I need BASIC?

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.

We will be spending the weekend on 500 acres tucked into the rolling hills of East Tennessee, near the Georgia/Tennessee border. Free time is built into the retreat on Friday and Saturday afternoons. On-site and nearby activities are available including hiking, swimming, fishing, river tubing, etc. An optional adventure activity is also included (whitewater rafting, horseback riding, high ropes course, or paintball). You may want to bring a hammock and find a quiet spot by a stream to rest and soak in God’s beauty. In the evenings we will have a campfire.

This event is best experienced off the grid, and we ask that you plan to arrive ready to unplug for the weekend. We promise you won’t regret it, and your texts and e-mails will still be there on Sunday afternoon.
