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.

What to expect:
Here’s an excerpt from the Jubilate Deo newsletter,
“Every man’s heart is yearning for an adventure, a battle, and a beauty…
This past October I had the opportunity to join 11 other men for the diocese’s first Wild at Heart Basic Retreat. It was great to be at St. Christopher. The camp used their personal retreat format to safely provide lodging, meals, meeting space, and outdoor encounters for this adventure based on the book Wild at Heart. In over 70 live Boot Camps John Eldredge and his team have presented this to tens of thousands of men worldwide over the past 20 years. They offer their entire Boot Camp via video session and call it Wild at Heart Boot Camp/ Basic…After arriving Thursday afternoon and enjoying a delicious meal in the cafeteria, we began the quest with evening and morning sessions. During free time Friday and Saturday afternoons we hiked, fished, kayaked, relaxed, and simply enjoyed God’s creation in the unique St. Christopher setting. Saturday evening, we had a steak cook out on the pavilion as the sun set over the ocean. We left Sunday at noon to continue our search for truth…”
