WHO WE ARE
The ManKind Project WA is a non-profit organisation that offers men powerful trainings, weekly peer-facilitated men’s circles and access to a global network of men who are skilled up and empowered to explore what it means to be a man in the 21st Century.
The work serves men of all ages (18+) and backgrounds, at all levels of success, and men in transition or facing challenge.
The ManKind Project Western Australia (MKP WA) is an incorporated, not for profit, volunteer association operating in Western Australia. MKPWA is part of a global network spanning countries including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Mexico, Canada, UK, Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland. MKP has operated for over 30 years and been active in Western Australia for over 10 years.
The ManKind Project empowers men to missions of service, supporting men to make a difference in the lives of others – men, women, and children around the world. We help men through any transition, men at all levels of success, men facing almost any challenge. Our flagship training the New Warrior Training Adventure, is described by many as the most powerful men’s training available. Since 1985, over 57,000 men have participated in this training across the world. MKP is not affiliated with any religious practice or political party and strives to be inclusive and affirming of cultural differences, especially with respect to colour, class, sexual orientation, faith, age, ability, ethnicity, and nationality.
"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
— Lao Tzu
MKP WA has been running trainings and I groups since 2006 when the first NWTA was run at Woodman Point in October 2006. Since that date, over 500 men in WA have completed the NWTA.
Trainings have been run around Australia since 2001 when the first NWTA in Australia was run in Qld and since then over 100 NWTA’s have been conducted in all parts of Australia.
MKP was originally founded in 1985 in the USA and has been growing steadily ever since then.
"It feels like I was lost in the desert for fifty two years. Sure, I had company, but they were lost also. Identity, purpose, resources, while it is early days for me these three parts of my life have never felt so strong, vibrant and congruent. As a man I never knew that I could share with and draw strength from other men."
