There is something profoundly and subtly different about a man who strives for maturity in all aspects of his life. This kind of man has been called many things throughout history; we call him the New Warrior. Many aspects of the New Warrior will sound familiar. What the ManKind Project offers is a time-proven way of integrating aspects of the mature masculine into your everyday world in a powerful, responsible and self-aware way, as part of a community of like-minded men. We commit to integrating these values into our lives and we support each other and provide tools to help each other succeed. We don’t just talk the talk, we work together to walk the walk.
Values of the Mature Masculine
Accountability – We do what we say we will do. We take responsibility for our actions, our thoughts and our feelings.
Authenticity – We tell the truth about who we are. We strive to be our best selves.
Compassion – We empathise, connecting to the suffering of others and we act with love in the world.
Generosity – We recognise that giving of ourselves from our abundance brings more for all. We take on missions of service in the world and work together to make a positive difference.
Integrity – We live our values. We seek wholeness.
Leadership – We step forward in our lives to offer compassionate leadership, seeking understanding and community rather than domination or oppression.
Diversity Awareness – We recognise that in our world it is imperative that we be able to live in harmony with people who are different to ourselves. We strive to understand ourselves and others and to celebrate our differences.
Respect – We pay attention to the impacts of our actions on others and we treat others with honour.
