John has provided me with life-changing feedback, coaching, challenges, support, and practices that have fundamentally changed how I choose to lead and love. He is a master at seeing how each person can be better a version of themselves and helping his clients develop new ways to become that person. As an executive coach, I support others through their most intense challenges and periods of transition. There are only certain people I trust to hold my most potent doubts and fears with me. It has been incredibly powerful to be held by John during my own struggles. He brings fierce presence and a graceful kindness into his coaching work. This helped me find a new version of myself through a difficult period. Ultimately I feel I have emerged on the other side with a deeper connection to my joy, my personal power, and my heart. Thank you, John!

I knew going into this workshop that it would be very powerful and useful, but it reached corners of my mind and heart that I could not have anticipated. I am so glad that I discovered John's teaching so young in my life. I am confident his work will save me so much unnecessary stress in my relationship. He will definitely see my face at future events!

“Shazam! It doesn’t get any better than John Wineland. In my opinion he’s THE leading male teacher of relational practice and men’s work. He brings unparalleled expertise that only maturity and years of dedicated study can grant. I’ve seen radical transformation (and I mean radical!) in his clients and I trust him, entirely. He walks his talk with deep integrity. I emphatically recommend John if you want to rock your life and love with passionate purpose! ”

The Art of Fearless Intimacy was truly transformative in every sense of the word. I came in with high expectations, wanting to transform how I show up for my wife of 10 years. On top of that, I decided to attend alone to get real, unfiltered feedback and growth.
This workshop blew these expectations away completely and utterly. Over the weekend John and Kendra were able to expand my capacity for love, stillness, gratitude, fear, sadness, and joy, and did it while creating a safe, sacred space for practice, failure and learning.
If you're even thinking this workshop might be for you, it is. It will expand your capacity for deep human connection in any relationship.
I've always had trouble being around other men, I've always been awkward, shut off and defensive. This weekend was the first time I'd been around so many men holding a similar intention of healing and deepening their impact in the relationships and the world. I felt I had a place to release and be held, while being challenged to be the fullest version of myself I could. When I left I felt a sense of brotherhood that I've never felt before; it was transformative. Thanks John.

My husband and I experienced a couples retreat with three other couples. My husband and I went through big changes in our life after he retired from the police department. We had to learn how to be in relationship with each other in a new way. John guided us on different way to communicate and ways to not only be heard, but to be felt. He explained more about the masculine and feminine and how this polarity works in our marriage. This made a lot of sense to me once it was explained and opened my eyes on how we can work on creating a deeper relationship with each other. Our marriage has surely had it’s ups and downs in the last 11 years and as a result of taking 2 days to work with John, I am more hopeful and excited about our marriage and our future as individuals and as husband and wife. ”
“John has been a revelation for me as a coach and mentor. He has been offering me what I have sorely needed and hadn’t had the courage to develop until our work: my depth and my purpose as a man. The work itself is almost impossible to describe in a testimonial- I will say I have never been more present in all aspects of my life. This journey has been full of ritual, practice, stillness and reading works of substance. Which has lead to an utterly new and inspired interaction with the feminine. John’s work isn’t for everyone-just for those who crave a life of meaning, integrity and joy.”
JAMIE WOLLRAB, DIRECTOR/PRODUCER, LOS ANGELES, CA
"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Your video "What Men Crave" touched my heart and is everything I try to teach any woman who comes to me for coaching. And the fact that it was said from a man's perspective adds to the credibility of every sentiment. I will use your YouTube clip in my retreats to speak to the women in a way I never could. Your way of speaking about men reminds of me of the book "The Way of the Spiritual Man." I could feel your words in my body, the same way I could when I read David Deida's book. Beautiful and vulnerable. Thank you again."
JODI PIRLOT, REALTOR/ENTREPRENEUR
“When we first met, you struck me as a man who is grounded, intelligent and welcoming of life. Now that we have been working together for awhile, I can say that I was right and also that you are very modest. While being the things I describe, you are also a man of unassuming depth and purpose. What I love about working with you is that our relationship did not begin with a hard sell or an overwhelming amount of service and then, once committed, become a hollow echo of that. The longer we have been in working relationship together, the more I have felt your commitment and your desire to serve me. Our work has continued to deepen and the journey has been much like that of falling in love. Thank you for your service, John. I look forward to what has yet to come.”
"Well I want to thank John and all the men who were a part of this program. I’ve learned so much about me. There were times when I really, really disliked John and the men, but I was growing in so many areas. I am more comfortable being a man, and being around other men.
I am confident and passionate about it so I have created my own men’s work.
I am grateful for the many valuable practices, which became a daily routine for me. I am more aware of my thinking patterns, more aware of my shadows and I am much more able to express them. I am present, and can hold space even when shit hits the fan. Because of this program I am a better leader and conscious man.
DANIEL HUESSER, BUSINESS & MEN'S COACH
“John was able to help my husband and me during a challenging time. He enabled us to have far greater healing in four visits than our previous therapist in over a year. He truly cares and his honest compassion and recommendations for personal practice provided us the tools needed to grow on our own. I recommend him without reservation.”
"I have a very very deep resonance with John and completely trust him as a teacher. When I started working with him I did not have any trustable masculine in my life, even historically. Taking the leap and fully committing to working with him has completely changed every aspect of my life and all my relationships. With my son, with intimate partners, with my girl friends and mother. My business has just completely taken off - I have no upper limits to where my business can go and it constantly rewards me exponentially. The time and money investment was the single best decision I have ever made. And although my one on one coaching with him is almost over (one session to go) I don't feel complete in my work with him."
DONNA HADJIKHANI, TRANSFORMATIVE LIFE DESIGNER
“Thank you John, Thank you for showing me deeper levels that I can explore with. Thank you for showing me how to lead with kindness, clarity and love. Thank you for focusing me on focus. Thank you for teaching me about myself. Thank you for allowing me to be myself. Thank you for making this world a better place. Thank you for bringing so much awareness in me. Thank you for your support in my path. Thank you for coming to my life.”
“John Wineland is an extremely impactful relationship coach and can speak into a woman’s heart as well as a man’s. He is a master at explaining, using analogies and creating experiences for us to OWN our role in the relationship and create opportunity for deeper more meaningful life experiences. His dedication for all of humanity to live in our truth and heal the planet one loving relationship at a time, beginning with ourselves. John’s decades of experience learning, practicing, and teaching is what drew me to share his work with my clients and experience it personally. His effectiveness and impact as a powerful coach is enhanced by his “no nonsense”, direct, “gutsy” - while loving, delivery. He gets that to truly serve one, it may not necessarily please one. He operates from a place of dignity and grace as an extremely impactful leader. He moves those who choose in- in creating more, deeply fulfilling lives!! I highly recommend investing in yourself by going to any and all of John’s Workshops, Experiences, and or coaching one on one with him.”
“John is a bad-ass. He is deep, fierce, and loving; a combination that I strive for. John has tremendously supported me with gaining clarity on my purpose in life, becoming a more embodied man, and expressing myself more truthfully in the world. What I really appreciate about him is that he does not hold back, that he’s spot on about how I close, and that he’s a great leader. In my experience, John is a trustworthy man who is very passionate about helping men live a more deep, rich, and open life. His work is very powerful, and I highly recommend him.”
“John is one of those incredible men that when you come across you just know there’s something different about him. And initially, it’s hard to put your finger on. It might be his fierce love, or deep brotherhood & masculinity, or his ability to hold a space of non-judgment that just makes you feel safe. Whatever it is, words won’t do it justice. It has to be felt. I’ve received invaluable tools which I will continue to practice deepening for years to come. John helped me uncover qualities of myself that I always intuitively knew I had inside, but wanted access to. The man he’s helped to uncover is one who is deeply rooted in his being, fills the room with his presence, open hearted, highly sexual, and above all, a killer for love. Knowing these qualities were within me the whole time (as with any man), John has helped me reconnect with these parts of myself. What more can you ask of a teacher than to reveal to yourself more of who you really are? As the saying goes- ‘Know Thyself’ my friend. Your investment will pay dividends.”
TOMMY JIA, SENIOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, LOS ANGELES, CA
“John, Yesterday was a powerful, fun, enlightening and healing day for me. I'm so grateful that you remembered to invite me. Please do so again. You are a great teacher and as I already said a really good man."
MARCIA WIEDER, SPEAKER AND AUTHOR, WWW.MARCIAWIEDER.COM, WWW.DREAMUNIVERSITY.COM LOS ANGELES, CA
"I took with me a fierceness around not wanting to settle for absolutely nothing but my best moving forward after the LA intensive. The weekend helped me further embody my purpose and the massive impact I believe I can have on the world. Expansion is the one word that I can pin to the experience. Expansion of my capacity to tap into the different energies in my body, expansion of my consciousness, and my capacity to integrate a stronger relationship with my breath to my relating to the world. I'm grateful for the experience, the leadership, and for the men who were right there with me."
TRAVIS ROZNOS, COACH/CONSULTANT
"Kendra and John have powerfully well-developed intuitive capacities to unearth what I need to open my heart more fully and communicate it in such a way that it is always exactly what I need to hear.
They know when to push, when to guide, when to hold, and when to nurture. I am a better lover, friend, teacher, and human being because of their work.
Best of all, I have been able to bring the skills and practices I gained to my partners at home and transform my relationships immediately!"
NICHOLETTE ROUTHIER, PERFORMING ARTIST/COACH, OAKLAND, CA
"I came to the EMLT retreat as a culmination of close to a year of intensive training with John. My biggest takeaway was the entrainment of my nervous system’s ability to know intuitively, in each moment, the most artful expression of my gifts into the world. Whether it is tussling with my woman, dealing with complaint from other men or nurturing my own self-doubt, I walked away with an increased confidence and ability to intuitively know what the most right next step on my life’s path is in any given moment. Thank you, John. Your work is unparalleled."
Since the workshop, Geoffrey and I have continued the practices we learned, entrancing our breath and gaze; me opening my body energetically and him providing structure and pressing his energy into me. It has taken our intimate life into a whole new level. I have been asking (yearning) for a new level of intimacy but neither of us really knew how to create it. I read books; couldn't really find it until your workshop. We don't have a whole lot of time for intimacy and when we do, we plan it, create a beautiful container and mood, and IT IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL. It has reconnected us at the deepest level. Geoffrey and I are so excited for the future of our exploration and the deepening of our relationship into a cosmic intimacy. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. A whole new world has opened up over here and we are beyond happy.
- JACLYN GELB, PRIESTESS/WOMEN'S WORK FACILITATOR
This weekend was absolutely amazing! The ease with which John and Kendra integrated deeply spiritual, sexy, and practical embodiment practices while providing a safe and transformational container to explore masculine and feminine dynamics was incredible. My favorite part was how deeply I opened to the other women as mirrors of the seductress, sorceress, and goddess within me. It opened a whole new level of connection to women as resources for my own sexual and spiritual awakening rather than sources of competition and judgement. I am deeply grateful for how this work creates new dialogue and ways of being with my partner that I would never have been able to do on my own and for how John and Kendra make it all feel safe, fun, and a possibility for a new normal in my life.
- KAREN WOLFE, LICENSED MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST
Working with John and his amazing team was a pivotal point in my life. The sheer brilliance of the love-light that was generated in my heart from the work we did is spilling over into every day I live. I breathe deeper; I stand taller, more grounded, more present and more intentional in my stance. I see the world now as though a filter of haze has been lifted, feeling intense clarity and dedication to purpose in love and truth. I left with immense gratitude and respect in my heart, and a deep desire to serve the world in service of love.
