The core team responsible for delivering the Initiation

Eivind Figenschau Skjellum
Eivind Figenschau SkjellumRYIT Founder
Eivind created RYIT while in the midst of a profound initiation due to chronic health issues, death of family members and the loss of everything that had given his identity form. He then discovered how to take men on a similar journey in just three months, suspecting that it may change their lives. The rest is history. Eivind is a recognized expert in the field of archetypes and masculine psychology, a true visionary and trailblazer, and a leading figure in burgeoning men’s movement.
