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.

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!

He also told me it was what a man needs to do. To bury his feelings and protect others from the horrors of war. I believed him and proceeded to stuff those emotions deeply away.

I’m a Vietnam veteran who attended the ManKind Project's New Warrior Training Adventure in February of 2010 in the New England community.

When I returned from Vietnam I was told by my father, who was a Marine combat WWII veteran, I should never talk about my experience in Vietnam. He also told me it was what a man needs to do. To bury his feelings and protect others from the horrors of war. I believed him and proceeded to stuff those emotions deeply away. They remained hidden in my subconscious festering for over 40 years until, through the guidance of the highly trained and skilled staff at the NWTA, helped me identify and bring those feelings to the surface, to express them and release the anger associated with them. Going through that process brought an amazing sense of relief and inner peace for me after keeping it hidden for so long! After the NWTA, looking back, I realized what a profound impact it had on my life and in that experience I learned a very important lesson. As a man, how important expressing, being aware of and understanding our feelings is a powerful tool for our self discovery and growth.

I am now an active member and enjoy being a part of the ManKind Project and have become an regular member of a local igroup . In all, The ManKind Project has now become an integral part of my life. I highly recommend to veterans and any man to attend an NWTA and becoming a member of the ManKind Project. You will be happy you did!

I was very uncomfortable and didn't really think that I belonged there. I was miserable. By the end of the next night, I felt a new sense of being that I had never felt before!

I was very reluctant about attending the NWTA earlier this year. I didn't think that I had any issues to work on. It was highly recommended that I attend a weekend to help me relate to others and to help me strengthen my marriage. After arriving at the weekend, it was everything I could do...not to gather my stuff and leave the first night. I was very uncomfortable and didn't really think that I belonged there. I was miserable. By the end of the next night, I felt a new sense of being that I had never felt before! I was so glad that I stuck to it! By the time we were checking out on the last day, I was so sad to leave. I felt that I had grown close to all of the men and hated for the weekend to end!
About IGroup

Our IGroup meets a couple of days per month. Every gathering is something special. We have grown very close, but still learn so much from one another at every meeting! It's a very special time.

I feel invigorated with a new energy, a drive and desire for more, for better, for me, for my family, for my community and for my business!

We all have dreams. We all have desires. We all do the best we can - with what we've got ... At the age of 47 I felt that I was doing a pretty good job. I have a pretty happy family, and lead and manage my staff pretty well. This weekend gave me a new lease on life! A new desire! A new drive! A new ambition! A new vision! I feel invigorated with a new energy, a drive and desire for more, for better, for me, for my family, for my community and for my business!

a 3-day experiential process that took me on a guided, adventurous, and dangerous journey of masculine initiation.

I found my path to masculine initiation through The ManKind Projectâ„¢ (http://www.mkp.org/) and their New Warrior Training Adventureâ„¢, a 3-day experiential process that took me on a guided, adventurous, and dangerous journey of masculine initiation. That process of initiation - and years of subsequent involvement with a community of men willing to claim their names, identify their missions and live them, and - most importantly - be open to the challenges of healing their wounds has had, outside of my turning my life over to, and being born again in, Christ, the most significant impact on my life above anything else.

The NWTA was a true awakening for me. I developed a mission that has been refined and expanded over the past six years

The NWTA was a true awakening for me. I touched a part of my shadow, the parts of me which I hid, repressed, and denied for most of my life. I also developed a mission that has been refined and expanded over the past six years and which led me to help form Boys to Men Mentoring of Georgia, a non-profit corporation that recruits, trains, and supports men to mentor at-risk teenage boys.

The New Warrior Training Adventure has ignited my passion and power for living in a way that I always knew was possible-in my mind- but now feel is alive in my body and soul!

For me, someone who's spent his life traveling the world to learn from the best ... this is in our back yard in South Africa ... and I highly recommend it.
