What we're about

Why Personal Mastery?

To be the man you want to be takes effort and the support of a community.

What if there were a place to resolve internal conflicts, learn skills to help drive your success in relationships, in business, in LIFE?
What if there were a group of men in your life who you could trust enough to let down your guard and tell the truth?
What if your skills, insights and wisdom about life could be put to use in helping other men become more successful?

FREE. Open to any man. The men who facilitate this group care deeply about making our communities safer, more open and more resilient. Any man willing to follow some simple ground rules is welcome.

We are men that share experiences and wisdom to support self-awareness and positive change. We form a community of peers who take risks to improve our lives and help others. All kinds of men are involved. Non-religious and non-profit. Any man ready to follow some simple ground rules and take responsibility for himself is welcome. This group is facilitated and safe.

This work can have profound positive impacts on families, friendships and communities. Better health, more happiness, less anger, closer relationships with loved ones! Make the change you've been dreaming of. Become more the man you want to be. Create trusting and open relationships with men.

The way we see it, the world really needs men who have the strength to get real with one another and work together as brothers. Go-it-alone, dominating, chest pounding, 'tough it up' or 'laugh it off' masculinity is a facade that often covers up the truly effective, powerful, compassionate, nurturing, mature man.

Hosted and facilitated by men from the ManKind Project.
