THE K4 COMMUNITY: BECOME A MAN IN FULL
K4 - KING OF THE FOUR HOUSES
COMMUNITY | ACCOUNTABILITY | WORKSHOPS | RETREATS
K4 is a robust community of men who are committed to living the life of a Man In Full. Our members engage in activities to support each other, learn from each other and grow in key aspects of life. To live the life of a Man in Full is something that we cannot do alone. We all need coaching, mentoring, camaraderie, accountability, networking, support and a safe container in which to express our vulnerability and discharge the crippling load of shame that we all carry.
The number one cause of early death for men today is inflammation-based disease caused by chronic stress and loneliness. The same is true for the epidemic of anxiety, depression and suicide as well as the crippling effects of lack of fitness and financial success.
It all comes down to isolation.
King of the Four Houses is a community designed to fill that breach in our sick society and reclaim the power and birthright of men.
Approaching the cure for the modern male malaise is inspired by the book "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine", by Jungian psychologist Robert Moore and mythologist Douglas Gillette. Studies show that masculinity is made up of four basic archetypal male energies which serve different purposes. To become a Man in Full a man must work to develop all four archetypes. The result of striving to become complete is a manifestation of confidence, purpose, and ultimately happiness. It’s the journey that leads to the Kings of the Four Houses.

Fire Chief Henderson Fire Department
Valor has been a great organization for us & I would highly recommend their services
Captain Reno Firefighter Department
Our peer support team has been lucky enough to have Joshua Wenner come up and deliver his Emotional Resilience Training (ERT) with our peer support team a couple of times over the last year. Joshua's approach to discussing emotions allowed our peer support firefighters to really enjoy the training and take a lot of applicable information tools away from the training. Through ERT my peer support team was able to get the tools they could use themselves and also could be shared with our peers to be used.
With substance abuse being such a big issue in the fire service, Joshua was able to explain the 'why' of substance in a manner that really made sense with a lot of members of my peer support team. ERT is eye opening and really strikes home for a first responder. I would high recommend Joshua's ERT for any fire department or first responder peer support team.
Critical Care Flight Paramedic
I first met Joshua during a presentation that he gave to firefighters and their peer support personnel. It was evident that Joshua possessed the life experience to relate to those in need of emotional healing. After that presentation I asked Joshua to speak to the REMSA and Care flight staff along with their support personnel during EMS week with a focus on emotional wellbeing.
Joshua was also one of my speakers at a health & wellness symposium that I coordinated for the Nevada State EMS Advisory Committee on self care. It was attended by firefighters, mental health clinicians, EMS and hospital personnel. His presentation helped clarify some of the deep emotional trauma and turmoil that first responders experience and that there is hope and relief. The numbers of critical incident or traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, burnout and suicide has increased in first responders and we need those like Joshua to provide the right tools and assistance to decrease those numbers.
Joshua creates a safe environment for those he touches, he is passionate about helping people. He doesn't just listen! He doesn't just preach! He gives you practical and tangible tools to help you learn, grow and overcome those obstacles that are hindering your emotional recovery needs. He is truly a facilitator for change. I would highly recommend Joshua and his program.
