Training coming to Vancouver Island

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

The New Warrior Training Adventure is coming again to Vancouver Island on March 31-April 2, 2006 weekend.  I found this intense training for men to be transformative, and the follow-on trainings and groups excellent.  Created by three men in the mid-80’s, something like 33,000 men have now gone through it.  There’s more info at www.mkp.org/vancouver and a registration link at www.mkp.org/canwest.

What I got out of it:

  • a mission/sense of purpose, and how to take action in the world
  • the fundamental power of accountability (both modeling it and holding others accountable)
  • a better understanding of integrity and how to live in integrity
  • how to balance compassion, action, mystery, leadership, self and beliefs

The training is recommended for men who are ready to let go of preconceptions and take a hard look at themselves, and push themselves to their limits.  The number of staff exceeds the number of participants, so safety is paramount.  The training is run by the ManKind Project, a not-for-profit organization.  For men who are interested but can’t make it to Vancouver Island, this training is held 125 times per year around the world.  See www.mkp.org for local trainings.

    If I may ask:

    what kind of “mission” is meant by mkp?

    Did you go through this training?

    Hi Franz,

    The MKP mission describes what change a man can make in the world, and how to achieve that. For example, my mission: “I create a world of delight and wonder by risking authenticity.” It’s very short and to the point. It’s huge and takes a lifetime: imagine affecting all humankind. I believe that if I am honest and straightforward and treat people with respect (which is all part of authenticity for me) I can achieve more, and that will encourage others to do the same.

    I went through this training in February 1997 at a camp north of Tucson, Arizona.

    So MKP provides people with a “sense” for their lifes and helps in orientation. Not bad at all!

    I invite you to explore my blog at http://www.nwtamkp.blogspot.com/ for more information on MKP and the New Warrior Training Adventure. It is a balanced look at what this work is about from my seat.
