With a wide-open and curious heart, Jayson is a radical, powerful man devoted to serving the authentic full-throttle expressions and healing of the masculine and feminine; whatever it takes, however it looks. To do this he has offered his own life as practice, in transparency, in humility and fierce truth…holding nothing back. I am honored to consider Jayson a colleague, a brother and a dear friend.

Jayson Gaddis whole-heartedly brings his brilliance into the world with a clean, honest and evolutionary approach, grounded through his own life experience. He grapples with charged issues of manhood, relationship, intimacy, family and community, and offers up his trials and triumphs as a guide and map for others. I appreciate his authenticity, his trust and skillfulness, and his commitment to assisting people in becoming evermore available to what is true and real. Jayson speaks on relationship and self-discovery from his own life, not a dogmatic or intellectual perspective ~ what he teaches and facilitates, he lives. He will lead you into the intimate unknown with depth of heart, integrity and humility. He will invite you into edgy terrain with a willingness to walk right there with you. He is a good man who will continue to discover what that means. A leader of the highest order, Jayson has a clear intention of what he is doing along with a deep willingness to respond to the co-creative expression of a group. He is connected to the mystery of the moment, the mystery of himself and the miracle of life which allows for great discovery, only available through being in relationship with what is present. What emerges through this active discovery in his facilitation is alive and particular to what is happening now, supporting relationship to anything to become more sustainable, more thrilling, and more real.

“Jayson is an incredible facilitator because he not only has the skills and insight to guide people to deeper levels of intimacy and authenticity, he truly embodies what he is teaching. Watching him interact with his beautiful wife and two small children is really moving… his love for them shines through. And he brings himself as a human being and a man not only to his family, but also to his work with people, his friendships, and community. The fact that I’ve witnessed him bringing his truth, his vulnerability, his masculinity and his heart in all of these domains has me implicitly trust what he teaches… I know he offers a path that he himself embodies… a path other people can walk and embody in a way that will change their lives.”

Alexis Shepperd, PhD, Life and Relationship Coach

“As a somatic psychotherapist with an understanding that all experience is lived and healed in and through the body, I believe that the heart is our truest teacher and that love is our most reliable personal and professional skill. Having assisted several MLT weekends with Jayson Gaddis, I experience him as committed to telling the truth and facilitating intimacy and relationship between men, and between men and women, with love as his guiding principle, his discipline.

brettJayson is a man with whom I have taken powerful and difficult journeys. It is in the setting of such challenges that one learns the essence of another person and whether they can be relied on. I have come to know that I can rely on Jayson without having to question it–he’s got my back. In a world in which we are so frequently distracted–caught up in our own trips and confusion–it is a huge gift to discover someone you know will stand with you in their deepest truth and integrity. Jayson is that kind of man.

He helped me get out of my head and more connected to my feelings and my body’s own wisdom and awareness. I could immediately sense that he genuinely and deeply cares about seeing guys step up and live more engaged lives. My coaching experience with Jay gave me powerful insights and practices that helped me dive deeper into my authentic self.

“From the first moment of my coaching experience with Jay, my conceptions of what ‘coaching’ is about were completely rocked. I had anticipated a focused, accountability based experience.
