About the Journal

The ManKind Project Journal is published by The ManKind Project. The Journal features articles relating to diverse men’s issues, personal and social, as viewed by ManKind Project members and special guests. The Journal also presents news and announcements from The ManKind Project communities around the world.

The ManKind Project is a not-for-profit international training and educational organization. MKP teaches integrity, accountability, emotional intelligence, leadership, service, and inclusive diversity through 39 centers within the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Since 1985, more than 40,000 men have experienced MKP’s New Warrior Training Adventure.

The men in MKP  embody an incredible diversity of viewpoints and knowledge. No single ‘voice’ represents MKP. We are an amalgam of the hearts and minds of our members. Sharing a dedication to making the world a brighter and safer place for everyone, we explore our own internal landscapes — taking responsibility for our actions, making life-affirming choices, and offering our service to the world in myriad ways.

MKP has collected and published content from our members for more than a decade, creating a number of local and national publications distributed among members of the organization. We acknowledge the many years of service that men have offered and the millions of words they have expressed on paper or computer monitors. We look forward to sharing some of the wonderful archive work that exists as we expand.’

With the introduction of the ManKind Project Journal, MKP is reaching out to a broader audience to share our stories, views and knowledge about Men’s Health, Men’s Emotional Growth, Mentoring, Eldership and Mature Masculinity. We hope that you find enjoyment, honesty and heart in these pages.
