The No Bull Briefing Newsletter – January 2022


In the last two months of 2021 Samson Society raised $67,314.25 in unique contributions, matching and going beyond the Challenge Match of $65,000. That’s a combined $132,314.25 toward advancing the mission of Samson Society world-wide.

When told of the milestone, our founder, Nate Larkin, exclaimed, “beautiful!” That says it all – the commitment of our membership to the mission and vision of Samson Society is beautiful. We are growing faster and accomplishing more in every corner of our society: online meetings, Slack participation, international growth, Sarah Society, volunteer leadership, social media, retreats, connectivity, tech advancements, and on and on.

Let’s see what we can do in 2022! And let’s keep the momentum going. Contribute here.


We have two international retreats planned in 2022: October 7-9 for Italian men (a short drive from Rome), and October 14-16 for international participants (in the north of Italy). Men coming from the US are welcome at either retreat.

We are still finalizing the costs, but as of right now it looks like the in-country expenses will be very reasonable. If you want to make it a vacation for you and your wife, we will be holding a simultaneous event for women the first weekend.

Start planning now so you can get the most favorable airfares and lodging. If you plan on staying beyond the retreat for an extended vacation, we will be providing updates in future NBBs and on a dedicated Slack channel so you can coordinate with other Pirate Monks.

Oh, and if you’re wondering about language barriers…you’ve got nine months to learn a little Italian (try Duolingo).



Sarah Society invites any woman, regardless of marital status, who has experienced betrayal trauma to our inaugural annual retreat.

Join us April 8-10, 2022, at Five Star Retreat in Nunnelly, Tennessee, for a weekend of soul restoration and receive encouragement and practical tips for navigating the journey of recovery from partner betrayal.

We are seriously considering a MEGA RETREAT for 2023 in Orlando or a similar destination. The planning for such an event is considerable, though, so we are putting together a 2023 Mega Retreat Team to plan and execute the whole event.

We will need at least 12 men to coordinate travel, location, venue, communication, merch, meals and coffee, sound, video, presenters, registration, and more. The commitment is approximately 5 hours per month from now until August 2023, with more hours needed in the final couple of months.

If we can pull this off, this will be a game-changer event for Samson Society. Interested in joining the team? Email us at
