Our Chief Guide

Dr. Michael Martin Mendribil ( Dr. M ) is the founder and chief guide of Bonfire Society. As a transformational vitality coach, naturopathic physician, and life-long learner, he leads men into deep conversation and powerful experiences that change their lives. With over three decades of coaching leaders and deep inquiry into the nature and practice of health, consciousness, creativity and unbridled self-expression, Dr. Michael serves those who share his commitment to living full, vital and soul-guided lives.

Our Work

Our work is to help soulful leaders fortify their health, unlock their greatest power, and create the extraordinary.
Without sound health, mental clarity and a game worth playing, you are always on shaky ground, vulnerable to the passage of time, outside influences, and the angst of unfulfilled dreams.
Whether it’s resolving long-standing issues, optimizing for the future, or transforming challenges into actionable insights, we got you.
Isn’t it time to liberate yourself and create the life you desire? We believe there is no better time than right now.


BONFIRE SOCIETY provides a rare opportunity for you to join with other powerful men who are challenging limitations and creating more joy, power and freedom. 
We know the heartache and mental anguish that any kind of confinement or restriction can create in a man. We’ve all been there.
Unwilling to settle for less than full, vital lives, we challenge every limitation and obstacle. We explore, experiment and transform to create the best version of ourselves. 
Ultimately, we will not be bound.  We burn through. We shine on, regardless of external conditions.
