Phil Wolpe, Vice Chairman of the ManKind Project Elders, passed away on the evening of August 21, 2012 near his home in Prescott, Arizona. He died suddenly while in nature with a friend. The men of the Arizona center are assisting and supporting his wife, Sue.
For now, I ask that you keep Phil and his wife in your thoughts and prayers. With admiration and respect for a wonderful man, ritual elder, brother, father, husband, and elder.

Phil was a ritual elder at my NWTA weekend, the first “urban” weekend in Tucson. I wear the urban weekend t-shirt that Phil offered us at his cost and remember his peaceful, guiding spirit during a transformative journey. I was also fortunate to staff the inaugural weekend at Dee’s Sleeping Dog Ranch with Phil, and one of my best memories that weekend was a thoughtful, sometimes deep and often very funny conversation shared on a wooden porch, Phil sitting in a rocking chair. I will always appreciate how he shared his wisdom as a gift, but with so much humility. I will miss you, Phil, but will be forever thankful that I met you and accepted your gift! AHO
Phil was my Waterpourer on my Weekend. He has blessed and counseled me thorughout my journey to Ritual Elder. I sensed his spirit with me on my journey. I have an emptiness in me now that he has gone on. May his vision, his spirit, his wisdom that he gave us while in this time and space carry us forward.
I knew Phil as a beautiful man with a wacky wacky sense of humor and a heart overflowing with love. I will miss him.
