As one of the original architects of the new man’s lifestyle movement, Von Sydow is responsible for leading legions of males toward unheralded heights of redefined manhood.Recognized as the “Inner Game Guru,” he has pioneered the field of male sexuality. A primal embodiment of art, poetry, culture, music, fitness and yes, sex, Von Sydow has instructed, encouraged and incited men to enhance their mental, spiritual and sexual well being. Under his tutelage, thousands of men now boast success not only in their personal love relationships but also in their overall lives. His recently released master program, “Modern Day Sexual Man,” serves as a pinnacle in his library of self-help offerings over the past two decades. The components of the project are a culmination of decades of scientific research, relationship coaching, intuition and personal experience, designed to upgrade the modern man into a genuine “superbeing.” As a leading ‘mind designer’ consultant, he is now internationally recognized and sought after for his groundbreaking techniques which escalate business prowess and acumen.
