ELI BUREN | David Deida – The Way of the Superior Man

Eli Buren worked for 8 years with David Deida before developing his brand of practice and presence, which he has been teaching to students from around the globe since 2005. He is a dedicated practitioner in “doing the work” he teaches himself, and before this conversation, he had just returned from a 10-day personal vision retreat in his home mountains. I was incredibly excited to talk to Eli, fresh about our theme, “The Art of Being a Man” as he was a mentor for me entering the field of men’s work. We discuss the benefits of personal retreat and taking time to find deeper purpose and get off the societal rollercoaster of constantly increasing “more, more more”. Eli will be running a 3-month online dojo starting on Feb 3rd; relevant details are here: https://www.eliburen.com/dojo His annual Spring Zion Men’s Immersion is an excellent opportunity to train in embodiment and men’s work while experiencing a world-class national park: https://www.eliburen.com/zion
