Gathering of the Tribes

The Elders of the ManKind Project Northwest Center invite you to our first annual “Gathering of the Tribes."

Our theme is Building Bridges.

What does this theme mean to you?

  • What bridges in your life are in need of repair… or demolition?
  • Have you burned bridges that need rebuilding?
  • Where are your bridges taking you?
  • What work remains unfinished?

A bridge is something that takes you from where you are to somewhere else.

  • What are the important bridges in your life?
  • Are your bridges in good repair?
  • Can they bear the load in times of stress?
  • Will they stand the tests of time?
  • Are you ready to look at the bridges (or lack thereof) in your life?

If so, register now. (link redirects to EventBrite)

Building Bridges means what YOU make it mean. The Elders will create the framework, but the tribes will create the content. Are you a leader in your tribe? Are you willing to work with the other tribes to build the bridges you need? Are you ready to ask and answer tough questions? Experience and connect with your brother warriors in a new and powerful way. Bring your drum, your heart and your passion and step once again into the mystery and deepen our bonds of friendship, trust and mature manhood.

Women Too!

Women are invited too. Nik Colyer, a warrior brother and author of the “Channeling Biker Bob” books and his wife, Barbara Henrioulle, lead Bridge Workshops to help build stronger bridges between genders. Nik’s Biker Bob books are must-reads for men who want to continue growth into mature and balanced masculinity.

Barbara will lead the women in creating their own container separate from the men. We will all join together Saturday evening when Nik and Barbara will guide us through an exciting and totally experiential evening of crossing the hugest bridge of all, the bridge between genders.

Women will remain in community with the men for the remainder of the weekend. We will just have separate sleeping dorms.


Registration costs only $40 per person, but our true cost will be higher.

We have created a special $25 registration for women.

We expect our actual costs to be about $30/person/night plus $10/person/ meal. This will come to about $120 per person, and we work to keep our other overhead expenses below $20 per person. We expect the actual cost to come in somewhere around $140 per person.

Our tradition is to make sure that money is not a barrier for anyone. Give what you can and allow your brothers and sisters to step up and cover the rest. In the many years we have been doing this, we have never lost money, and anything in excess of our costs will find its way back to our communities in a good way.

We will let you know on Saturday what our actual costs are and on Sunday morning, we ask you to give what you can.

Meals will be provided Friday evening through Sunday lunch. Lodging provided does not include linens (bring sleeping bags & towels). Plenty of outlets for cell phone chargers. We have only 80 parking spaces, so carpool if you can.

You are invited. You are needed. You are wanted! Register NOW!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
