POP2014_250x250Time for a Purpose Revolution: ManKind Project USA Launches 2014 Power of Purpose Summit

Experts and thought leaders from across a spectrum of disciplines are together in the powerful recognition that we must join together in individual and shared purpose to make a difference for the future.

Ken Wilber, internationally recognized philosopher in integral theory and author of over 30 books including “A Theory of Everything;” Dan Millman, author of over 15 books, including “Way of the Peaceful Warrior;” Marci Shimoff, author of the NYT best-seller “Happy for No Reason;” Charles Eisenstein, author of “Sacred Economics;” and John Gray, author of the best-seller “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus,” will be joined by over 20 other speakers and experts for the ManKind Project’s second virtual Power of Purpose Summit.

Many believe that the times are demanding a new kind of response from all of us. For many modern men and women, the critical missing piece for meeting the challenges of the day is a fully integrated sense of purpose. Now is the time for a purpose revolution. In the words of Bill Kauth & Zoe Alowan, “We Need Each Other.”

The Power of Purpose Summit is a five day global event – a 4 day online virtual summit beginning March 12th, culminating in a live event at the David Brower Center in Berkeley California on March 16, 2014.

The speakers on the Summit will be talking purpose, collaboration, community, and action in the world.

“It’s time to finally break free of the lone wolf syndrome our culture promotes.” says Boysen Hodgson, Communications Director for the ManKind Project USA, “Awake, powerful, accountable, emotionally mature, spiritually self-aware, purpose driven community and leadership is exactly what the world desperately needs. We can take individual and collective action to make a difference for the generations to come.”

Chris Kyle, Program Director for the ManKind Project USA’s online programming team and co-host of the Summit says, “Over two dozen luminaries are coming together to shine a light for us. These men and women have lived big lives, they have struggled, grown, and conquered. They’ve done the most important thing we can do: stepped up and served. Now it’s our turn. I’m excited to be a part of this effort.”

MKP USA invites men and women from all walks of life to be part of the shift that is happening:“Wake up. Live big. Give your gifts … every day.” Learn more about the Power of Purpose Summit, and see the full speaker list at powerofpurposesummit.com.
