HOT Off the Press

Foster Mobley is a New Warrior in CA. His newest book has 15 FIVE STAR reviews on Amazon, including one from Andrew Harvey, author of "The Hope". This book is a different kind of Leadership model – one that I'm sure will resonate for MKP Members. It's about authenticity. A powerful read. Available now on Kindle.

The ManKind Project is a global nonprofit [501 (c)(3)] charitable organization that conducts challenging and highly rewarding programs for men at every stage of life. The ManKind Project supports a global network of peer-facilitated men's groups where men mentor men through the passages of their lives. The ManKind Project empowers men to missions of service, supporting men to make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children around the world. We help men through any transition, men at all levels of success, men facing almost any challenge. Our flagship training, described by many as the most powerful men's training available, is the New Warrior Training Adventure. The ManKind Project (MKP) is not affiliated with any religious practice or political party. We strive to be increasingly inclusive and culturally aware.
