What is the Modern Day Warrior?

Growth in life, and all that goes with it, surviving to thriving, is governed by the.........

Desire to catch on fire.

This may be rooted in a number of different areas such as the craving to end pain, the hunger for adventure, or the desire to make a difference in your world.

The Pain:

 “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

-Henry David Thoreau


Are men living lives of quiet desperation? Are they falling short of the meaning and accomplishment they could possibly have?

Are you? Sometimes it’s hard to know until the gift of the pain wakes you up.

For me, I became an expert at sedating the pain, numbing it out so I could ignore it. After all, what else was there to do?  Right? Something hurts, you stop the pain.

Until sedation didn’t work anymore. I couldn’t numb it. It wouldn’t go away.

So what then? I started looking around like a rabid pit bull to figure this thing out. I needed to stop the pain, but normal sedation methods weren’t working (church, drinking, TV, meditation, etc).

And then I figured out the key: Growth. I had to grow.  I had to grow the fuck up.

I had to dramatically change EVERYTHING.  Some things had to change a little, some had to change in epic ways.

The Hunger:

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”

-Stephen King, Shawshank Redemption


And so I decided to figure it out, no matter what the cost. I was determined to discover powerful solutions to my very real problems, through investing huge amounts of money, time, focus, and will power. I wasn't going to be stopped. I consumed vast amounts of information, learned a huge number of practices, and went to work. I began a ruthless journey of self-discovery that led me to develop and test in my own life a technology of modern scientific and ancient practices and beliefs. 

Most of what I learned didn't do jack shit.

But, slowly, doggedly, I found the diamonds in the rough: Polarity and Embodiment.

  • Polarity: That which recognizes and embraces the duality of the individual and our universe.
  • Embodiment: Wherein a person discovers truth and integrates it into the whole self.

The Desire:

“Do I dare Disturb the universe?”

-T.S. Eliot


I dared disturb my universe. I desired to make a difference in my world. And so I began to polish these diamonds in the rough and use them in my life. What I learned and developed from hundreds of books, teachers, programs and workshops got refined into a system that not only saved my marriage and my relationship with my family, it launched this movement and gave meaning to my life.


The Adventure:

“Status quos are made to be broken.”

-Ray A. Davis


Then I created the Shades of Intimacy Art of Polarity and Embodiment Belief System to help people where they were suffering the most: In their intimate relationships. And from that came the authentic discovery that men were discontent in not just intimacy, but in their health and finances as well. Thus was born the Modern Day Warrior System.

Growth was difficult at first.

But, it led to something more than I ever imagined.

It wasn’t just that the pain of desperation went away, it was that a life of real quantum adventure opened to me.

And all of this has led to the annual Modern Day Warrior 3 Day Intensive (this year’s is June 9-11th in Heber City, Utah).

Grounded in Science

Supported by Numbers

Proven with Results by Thousands of Men


Believe me brothers, there is nothing so potent and profound in the world as a tribe of trustable men, who know who they are, where they stand, and exactly where they are going.  

Out of such simplicity comes earth shaking change, not only for yourself, but for your family and for the world.

Brother, I don't care if you are sixty years old and finding yourself for the first time, or if you are twenty years old and still feeling immortal.  Either way, a brother is a brother, and if you are hungry to do more with your life, to go further, to discover what you are born to do and share on this planet, then you have unequivocally come to the right place.

Be who you are meant to be and you will set the world on fire.

I attended the Modern Day Warrior weekend in the fall of 2015. It was a life changing event for me. The magic was not so much what I came away with, but that it left me somewhat unsettled, in a state I like to refer to as divine discontent. It aroused a hunger to know and understand in much greater detail what I had experienced at the workshop. I felt like I was exposed to the tip of the iceberg and it left me wanting to move further and further, deeper and deeper into the ideas and concept which had been uncovered.  The weekend was the beginning of an adventure; much of what I am studying and learning today were birthed at the workshop. As an added bonus, since that weekend I have become personal friends with Jason and have found him to be a man of honor and integrity who personally lives the principles which he teaches.

I've brought a fellow Warrior  King to share his wisdom with you

Christopher Sunyata - Sexual Intimacy Coach

How do I know if this is Right for Me?

By reading through this form you have been triggered with a feeling.  Either you recognize this is something you need to do, even if you are scared, or you don't.  The truth is... there are many different pain management and growth adventure models in the world. Many of them are really good.  The Modern Day Warrior however is the one I discovered and refined and used in my own life.  I lived it.  And I hate seeing people in pain or languishing in desperation.  I get lit up by people who face their fears and heal and grow.  So I created this movement to help the world in their intimacies and beyond. If you have any lingering questions, drop me a line and we'll get on the phone and talk.  Deep down you already know if this is for you or not. 

Are There Scholarships Available?

No.  A full investment is required brothers, or the buy in isn't there and the results you want don't occur.

What Can I Really Expect?

We come into a tight container with deep breath and a burning desire to grow. I'll talk to you about various ideas and practices. You'll ask questions and make comments. Together we'll co-create the weekend. I'll go where you need to go, and start you on exercises that will take up most of the weekend. You'll get the information in your body. You'll feel and experience and do the learning in your body. There is no better way. You'll also have moments of immense humor as well as beautiful openness. You'll meet a group of men that may very well become your friends for a lifetime. 


Yes. You will have the opportunity to receive follow up instruction and feedback through email and phone/skype consultations. You are not left hanging after the workshop. Christopher and I also have a limited number of Private Life Coaching Slots available.


Yes. Contact us at Jason@jasonfsmith.com for appropriate options.

I can only make a part of the Workshop. Will that be okay?

No.  It's a journey and you realistically need to be there from start to finish.  It's not just about you getting all the information. We will go very deep as a group, and it really will harm the group as a whole if one man is coming and going.

Do you offer a Payment Plan?

If you are having problems paying the tuition all up front drop me a line or give me a call.

I've Attended a previous Modern Day Warrior workshop, will I gain something from this one?

Absolutely. Each Workshop is unique. As I mention above, they are co-creative events tailored to the needs of the men who come. Many men return again and again to the Modern Day Warrior Workshop and get totally different things to help them each time, or simply to refresh themselves in the fire of masculine company.

What is the difference between Modern Day Warrior workshop and Shades of Intimacy?

The Modern Day Warrior Workshop is for men only.  The Shades of Intimacy Workshop are for both men and women.  The Elemental Feminine Workshop is for women only.  It all emerges from the same body of work: Polarity and Embodiment.

Are Lunches and Dinner Included in the Tuition Price?  Is housing included in the tuition price?

No. Lunches, dinner and housing are not included in the price of the workshop, except for Saturday Day Night Dinner, which is provided in a special event you don't want to miss.  

How far will this take me?

These tools will revolutionize your life... if you put them into practice. It takes a lot of hard work, commitment and a definite sense of humor. But if you persist, the life you are living now will seem as but a shadow compared to what you become.

Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins!
Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor! 
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go,
And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul! 
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!

-Walt Whitman
