Every Day Can Be Suicide Prevention Day

Suicide is epidemic. We can help prevent it. September 10 every year is World Suicide Prevention Day. For the last 8 years, the ManKind Project has supported the efforts of the International Association for Suicide Prevention. Suicide can drain the life and energy out of a family or a whole community. Suicide is highly correlated to deep stressors related to economic hardship, the end of relationships, loss of social belonging, and drug and alcohol addiction. In men, failure to live up to the social imperatives associated with ‘success’ as a man can be deadly.

New Warriors Featured on ‘Follow This’ Netflix / Buzzfeed Program

After confronting some of the uglier aspects of the MRA movement, talking about the terrorist act perpetrated by a man who claimed an identity as an ‘Incel’ (involuntary celibate) in Toronto, and exploring a domestic violence shelter for men in Texas, the ManKind Project is presented as a program for men to look at the structural understanding of manhood and to create the possibility for a better future for all of us. We’re an organization of men that acknowledge the very real challenges that men face, who take responsibility for our shadows, and who are living missions of service to make a positive difference.

The episode is live now on Netflix. [MKP section starts at 13:35]

Climate
A New Story

Charles Eisenstein’s 
New Book is Out.

Author of “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible,” and “Sacred Economics. Charles is also a New Warrior.

Book Event: LA: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/flipping-the-script-on-climate-change-an-evening-with-charles-eisenstein-tickets-49099913162

Charles is also relaunching his website as a profoundly re-envisioned portal for resources and inspiration for cultural evolutionaries.

“In the last few months, having finished my book, I have been creating a lot of new videos and other material that I will start releasing in a torrent this fall. I feel motivated like never before by the things I have seen in the world — both horrifying and sublime. I am no longer content to just create material, brush my hands together, stick it in my website archive, and move on to the next thing. It needs to be levered out into the world.”

Stop Fight or Flight
Trance Busters™ Manual

#NewWarrior David L. Monroe has been studying modalities for releasing trauma for decades. Drawing from multiple sources, and intent on creating a simple and reproducible practice for anyone to use, David has created a workbook called ‘Trance-Busters.’ Trance-Busters™ are trauma reset and neutralization exercises that rapidly and easily turn off the “fight or flight” reaction to highly charged emotional events (i.e. traumas) in our lives.

In David’s experience, until the “fight or flight” response is turned off, most traditional interventions, such as talk therapy, medications, reenacting the experience, role playing and other interventions, are largely ineffective until the “fight or flight” response is deactivated. This manual is available for free – along with a series of demonstration videos.

Humping for the Homeless

Kalani Creutzburg & Supporters Marched over 200 miles to Support Cammies & Canines

New Warrior Kalani Creutzburg, a formerly homeless Marine veteran, started a non-profit Cammies and Canines. Cammies and Canines provides transitional services to homeless vets, rescues dogs and trains rescued dogs to serve transitioning veterans. They were given the possibility of owning a 289 acre site outside San Diego to train dogs and work with vets. In addition, MKP is hosting NWTAs there! 

We’ve written about Cammies and Canines before. Recently, we interviewed Kalani about his involvement in the ManKind Project.

“MKP gave me permission, for the first time in my life, to touch my feelings. I learned how to give words to my emotions. I shed tears that were locked inside for so long. I let out years of anger without harming anyone else, and each time I saw myself in a mirror. I felt like a monster for so long but the reflection in the mirror was a scared little boy that needed a voice.”

Today, Kalani and a number of supporters crossed the finish line, arriving back at the Sanctuary. They’ve received a lot of recognition and press along the way, but they need help to raise what they need to continue developing the Cammies & Canines Sanctuary. See photographs from the triumphant arrival at the Sanctuary.

Every two years (2018, 2020, etc.) the ManKind Project USA calls the elders to gather for a powerful weekend for connection, fun, growth, teaching and mentoring. Programming varies widely and can be related to living life more fully, aging with grace, better health, experiential workshops and more.

October 18-21, 2018 there will be a gathering of women and men, Elders, near Orlando, Florida in a lush and beautiful natural place.
