Richard Joy M.A. is an author, speaker, men’s work practitioner and founder of the organisation Awakened Man.


He specialises in the reawakening of male initiation processes in the contemporary age, having crafted his 7-Step Path of Initiation in which he guides individuals and groups of men in ‘walking the steps’ of spiritual and personal transformation. He also runs several international men’s groups as part of the Awakened Man Men’s Forum.

Given the nature of his work, he is skilled in several key areas, including:

  • Men’s work

  • Spiritual work

  • Spiritual enquiry

  • Meditation

  • Dynamic meditation

  • Breathwork

  • Bodywork

  • Wellbeing

  • Life coaching


His work – and courses on Spirit Mountain – centre around a non-dual understanding of reality, being heavily rooted in Richard’s own transformational life experience and attendant realisations. For more insight into this, you can read his book From Lost Boy to Awakened Man: The 7-Step Transformational Guide.


Richard is also highly active on his media channel ‘Awakened Man’, which is searchable on YouTube.


Based in London, UK, Richard hails from Leicestershire, England, and holds a B.A. in Media Writing & and M.A. in Cultural Studies & Critical Theory, as well as a qualification as an Exponential Life Coach.
