MKP creates a world where men act on their individual and collective responsibility for the future of humanity by initiating and supporting men on a path of emotional maturity, spiritual awareness and deepening community.
Our Core Values : Accountability – Authenticity – Compassion – Generosity – Integrity – Leadership – Intercultural Competency – Respect
Our vision is a safe world where all men are brothers, in relationship with one another…
… a world where conflicts are resolved peacefully; where torture, genocide, domestic violence and senseless war are only entries in the historiy books…
… where men are fully accountable and responsible for their decisions…
… where men stand tall and proud to be men, secure in their role and deeply committed to nurturing one another, their families, their communities and their planet.
The ManKind Project (MKP) was founded by three men in Wisconsin in 1984. A former Marine (USMC) and engineer, Rich Tosi, a psychologist, Bill Kauth, and a university professor, Ron Hering.
Their observation was as follows: in the modern world, men no longer benefit from initiations; they are uncomfortable with nature, with themselves and with others. The goal is to recreate a connection over this weekend. It’s an initiation, not an internship, not therapy.
In MKP literature, there is talk of tribal initiations to masculinity. Rites of passage that would have disappeared for several generations. It says that the roles of men and women changed since the 1970s. Men lacking emotional and spiritual support have been confronted with women’s new expectations. This movement has come into existence to offer a positive response to feminism. One text further states: “Our fathers could not give us what we needed, we were raised by women from whom we could not learn manhood, so we must teach it to one another. »
Since that time, more than 60,000 men around the world have been initiated by living what is called the New Warrior Training Adventure.
MKP is a non-profit organization and is not affiliated with any religion or political party.
