Ed Gurowitz, PhDChairman

Ed Gurowitz is a Psychologist by training – whose career began in brain research, and segued to clinical psychology (psychotherapy) and then to organizational psychology. He began consulting to organizations in 1980, spent 10 years as an est/Landmark Forum trainer from 1981 to 1991 and then resumed practice as a consultant, trainer and coach, which continues to this day. His current work centers on changing the global game in the direction of inclusionary leadership through gender partnership, environmental sustainability, and the shift from pure profit to “for benefit” as the guiding principle of business.

Ed came to MKP late in his life’s journey at the behest of his business partner, Ray Arata. In MKP, he discovered the possibility of mature masculinity and the magic that is there when men sit in circle.

José Antonio Mondelo, M.D.Immediate Past Chairman

On a Sunday afternoon eleven years ago when I completed my training I was convinced that I had found a new path to follow in my life. The opportunity to grow in all aspects of the man I want to be showed up in front of me. I’m a better partner, father, family and community member because of the more self-assured me I started to find then, and am still discovering now, as I continue to do my work. The sense of connection, camaraderie and brotherhood I have in MKP is unparalleled and greatly complements my life. Honored and blessed to be of service.
