It completely freed me up to be the man that can live on purpose and with meaning, a clear meaning. I now have the power to conquer anything that presents itself with the tools I've received, and from the ongoing work I do with the support of other men. It's a brotherhood like no other. These men call me on my shit and I call them on theirs. That's a true brotherhood beyond friendship.

Jeff G. Coach / Facilitator

The ManKind Project was a tremendous learning experience for me and it gave me a whole new outlook.

Joe Sibilia CEO CSR Wire

It's the most important men's work occurring in the U.S., and perhaps in the world, today.

MKP has personally taught me more about how to step into mature masculinity than any other single influence in my life. That is a big admission for a psychologist to make.

Dr. David Gruder Author; The New IQ: How Integrity Intelligence Serves You, Your Relationships and Our World

I highly recommend the MKP New Warrior Adventure personally and professionally. I went through the program in September, 1999 and found it to be life changing. I have been to numerous workshops and trainings for myself personally and professionally and believe MKP to be one of the best. I was in need of healing around the wounding I experienced from straight males for being gay throughout my childhood. I never felt so loved and respected by heterosexual men as I have in the MKP circles. Bringing all men together—gay, straight and bisexual—is a great healing for everyone. The work involved in the MKP is done professionally and with the highest level of integrity I have ever experienced and witnessed. - Joe Kort, MSW, PhD, author of Gay Affirmative Therapy for the Straight Clinician

From: “10 Tips For Mothers of Troubled Teenage Sons” - Direct them toward strong men: There is a group of men who have willingly and very seriously shouldered the task of ushering the young males of today into the manhood of tomorrow. This is a group of men that all boys and men should be exposed to. I mean that without qualification. This is a group of men, dedicated to creating and supporting an environment for deep, honest and necessary male exploration. Here is a link that should be explored by any adult that would like to provide optimal conditions for a young male to become a man: The ManKind Project West Coast British Columbia.

On the weekend I found a degree of clarity and emotional authenticity that I had never experienced before. It was a huge breakthrough for me and my life has been forever changed for the better; in my marriage, my personal relationships, my fatherhood, and my career. This world needs fiercely generative, emotionally intelligent, loving men; committed and conscious partners, fathers, citizens, and MKP grows and empowers just such men.

Scott W., MA, LPC

Throughout the years as a mental health clinician I have heard and read great stories about men attending the New Warrior Training and benefiting from MKP initiatives. Once more, I recently saw the life-transforming signs of a male client of mine who finally decided to take on the risk, face his fears head on, attend a NWTA weekend, and start feeling again. It is thanks to weekends like these that "guys" take the first steps to become "new and better men" with their children, with women, and with other men. MKP is doing great work!

Juan Carlos Silva, PhD

The NWTA changed my life forever, it set a new course for me. I found the Love and Support I needed, with in myself and from a community of men I love and respect. I have been sitting in a Circle of Men now for over 9 years and I can't imagine my life without it. I will forever be grateful. I will carry this work out into the world and to other men. I am creating a world of Compassion through Peace, Love and Understanding.

Don Huff

The ManKind Project helped me to get more involved in my own process, to trust myself and to grow out of myself.

Coach Robert Selby

This is something that at some point in your life a man should take a look at. Because it focuses a man on mission and purpose. It gives a frame for my entire life ... what is my life about?

Joe Laur

I was very disconnected from men. I was involved in a lot of different groups. I found out I was using the groups to medicate. I knew something needed to happen. I found out that even though there were very few that looked like me on the weekend, I knew that some of them I could trust. Eventually I discovered that I could trust the the whole container of men.

Henry Thurman

For me, MKP has been a life saver. As a result of what I have learned in MKP and what I’ve experienced (since 1995!), I’m a better father, husband, son, therapist/counselor, teacher, brother, and any other role I play. I can specifically relate my improvement to things I have learned or the support I get from my brothers in MKP.  I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Ron Nevelow, LCSW

Previous cultures throughout history always intended authentic masculine initiation. But their vision and their cultural context of the world was necessarily limited. Since the first earthrise photograph from outer space, we have entered a new mythological era. For the first time in human history, we have before us the possibility of authentic masculine initiation - an initiation into the global brotherhood. --Dr. Robert Moore, Coauthor of King, Warrior, Magician, Lover

Robert Moore, PhD

The truth is, I was afraid of this training. Even though I've written about men and worked with men for many years, the fact is -- as I discovered on the Weekend -- I didn't really trust men. I'm glad I overcame my fear. This was the most powerful training I've ever done, and the changes it started in me have been both deep and positive.

Mark Gerzon Author

For years, I lived a life of disconnection from men. I grew up with trust issues as a result of things that impacted me in a negative way. As I got older I realized that it was difficult for me to trust, even though I wanted to be able to very badly. MKP gave me the comforting support system of men who really care. As a result of this support, I am able to open the places of my heart that had been closed. I am a FREE man now!

G. D'Angelo Watson

As a monk, I had undergone an initiation when I entered the monastery nineteen years before. I found the initiation experience of the New Warrior Training Adventure to be an explosive re-discovery of myself and my mission as a man, a Roman Catholic Christian, a Benedictine monk and priest.


MKP has created a space for me to look at all parts of myself, to see what's working and not working in my life, and to connect with a powerful, healthy circle of men whom I trust and love.

Greg Gondron

MKP changed my life in ways I couldn't have anticipated. At the time I did my weekend I owned my own company, had done quite a bit of self discovery work, and didn't know I was missing a key piece of what I now believe it means to be a man. It's made a tremendous difference in my relationship with my girlfriend, my father, and my friends. And I am so grateful.

Willie Baronet

After doing the New Warrior Training Adventure in 2012, I felt comfortable calling myself a man for the first time. I've recommended MKP to dozens of friends, clients, and colleagues as I know that they are a safe place for any man to land. There is very little work out there that is like it and I recommend it for every man in the world, regardless of your life's circumstances.

Michael Hrostoski Founder of The School For Men

I don't remember ever being told that I am not allowed to cry but I remember feeling like it was not ok. I remember being told how to act like a "man" when I was an expression of femininity as a child. I remember military training that taught me how a "man" shows up in the world. Through MKP I have learned, truly, how a man shows up for himself and, in turn, the world. This group of men has taught me how to love, and be loved, by men, without exception or expectations. The New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA) weekend was one of the most powerful and transformative weekends of my life.

Drew Potter

I went to the mountain with men as a child, I came back shell shocked and feeling closer to a man than I ever had. I even saw tough wannabes quit after the second day.

Nicholas Zart

I have undertaken many development programmes over the past 15 years but have to say that the New Warrior Training weekend was one of the most powerful of all. Groundbreaking and life changing and I cannot think of any three days I've ever done which has had so much profound effect. Fully recommended to any man. Thank you guys.

Adrian Hayes

I went on this retreat through this thing called the ManKind Project. Everyone challenges each other and has deep, authentic conversations. Going through that made me realize that we’re so much more alike than different. I came out of that feeling incredibly connected with the world.
