The sun was winding down and fresh snow laid on the trees around us. As we approached the retreat center, a man dressed in black stood in the middle of the road staring blankly at the three of us.

Drawing Forth a New World

by Boysen Hodgson Devin Lafferty is a young man who recently went through the ManKind Project’s New Warrior Training Adventure in New England.
