What we're about

EMPOWERING MEN TO LIVE THEIR TRUE POTENTIAL

Why the ManKind Project exists:
Society’s expectations on men are based on power, control and invincibility, and push men away from developing social and emotional skills and vulnerability. This causes much of the dysfunctional behaviour disrupting our society.
Traditional societies understood that both women and men need the benefit and support of their own social groups. Women’s communities help girls to mature into women and the men’s communities are required to support boys to shift from their cared for, nurtured and protected mindset to that of the carer, nurturer and protector of the mature man. Women are being proactive in redefining their role for our modern society. Our work is to help men do the same, and understand their role in achieving a healthy masculine feminine balance in our world.

Many men feel that something is not working or that something is missing in their lives and want to put that right. Being clearer about who he is, and about his role in life, allows a man to live with confidence, and purpose, and create a life without fear for himself and those around him.

All genders may join this meetup group and some of our events will be open to all sexes. But our men's groups and men's training events are only open to men subject to our stance on diversity which is: We affirm that all men are welcome on our trainings and in our communities. We will not tolerate discrimination on our trainings or in our communities. We support our training and community leaders in identifying and challenging discriminatory language and behaviour. We create trainings and circles in which all men are welcome to discover their deepest truths. We welcome men of races and creeds and all sexual orientations: gay, straight, and bisexual, including those who identify as having unwanted same sex attraction, to do their own work as they define it, to respect the identity and value of others, and to take responsibility for the impact their words and behaviours have on others.

Our stance on abuse and #metoo: We define abuse as behaviour in which physical violence, emotional coercion, or improper use of authority is used to gain or maintain power, control, or sex in any relationship. We recognize the deep personal impacts and cultural damage caused by patterns of abuse. As men involved in the ManKind Project, we work to transcend abusive ways of being for men. We consciously work to end abuse in every aspect of society. We begin with ourselves. As men, we practice the values of integrity, compassion, accountability and respect. We stand up for the human needs of love and connection without abuse. To realise our vision and change the world by creating safe circles and vibrant communities, we take responsibility for ending the cycles of abuse in our families, our communities, and our world. We work to fully integrate our core values into our lives.

Islington Men's Group Open Circle

Liverpool Road Community Centre

The men from Islington Men's Group have made a commitment to run an open circle on Tuesday 22nd Jan this year. Our wish is to reach as many men as possible and encourage new brothers to enter into our community. We're hoping that January not only allows ample time for people to think about and decide to attend the NWTA in March but also allows us to benefit from the energy of renewal that many people feel in each new year. An Open Circle is a scheduled event similar to a regular MKP Mens I-Group, but It has its own flow and protocol. These events are normally hosted as introductions to the ManKind Project and the New Warrior Training Adventure. This is an opportunity for men to safely go within and discover and explore the presence of their inner voice. They can experience a healthy and safe environment by sitting in circle with men who can model authenticity, integrity, vulnerability and openness in a loving way. This type of circle presents an opportunity to invite a man to the NWTA. Please contact John Zaheer-Flaherty t: [masked] directly or once you have the details of any man that wishes to attend. We're also very happy if men from other circles wish to accompany their friends to the open circle.
