About

A welcoming community of grounded, conscious individuals.

Mankind Project Australia supports men to explore and improve their connection to healthy, mature masculinity.

We offer men time-honoured learning experiences, skills and support to encourage emotional growth and help them become the responsible, strong and compassionate individuals our world needs.

What we do

We provide a range of time-honoured learning experiences and a network of support.

Men come to the ManKind Project either because they want to change something or because they feel something is missing in their lives.

 

The first training every person takes is our Rite-of-Passage training. The New Warrior Training Adventure is a stand-alone, long-weekend training which offers individuals the chance to face and overcome their biggest fears.

 

It also equips individuals with the personal tools to benefit from other trainings we offer. These include a range of other trainings designed to empower men in their leadership of themselves and others.

 

Men may also choose to join one of the many local men’s circles throughout Australia, participate in the on-line community, or come back and staff the trainings they themselves benefited from.

Why we do it

For millennia, older men have initiated younger men into mature masculinity.

Today, most men don’t receive any such mentoring. The result? People feel alone, estranged from themselves and others, and disconnected from meaning in their lives. We see the results all around us in the form of relationship problems, workaholism, alcohol abuse, violence and conflict in the home and at work.

 

Often, individuals suffer in silence because men are supposed to soldier on. Most do, and yet nearly 80% of suicide victims are male. The ManKind Project has supported thousands of men to explore and improve their connection to healthy, mature masculinity.

 

We offer men time-honoured learning experiences, skills and support to encourage emotional growth and help them become the responsible, strong and compassionate individuals our world needs. In short, we support men to live more wholesome and purposeful lives. It’s a modern attempt to fill the gap left by the mentors and the elders who used to play such a valuable role in men’s lives.

 

There is no longer a need for men to lead lives of quiet desperation. Many men who have done our trainings stay actively involved in the community to help other men out of gratitude for the gift they got.

What we stand for

Our values are simple yet powerful.

These are the things we offer as a world-class men’s training and education organisation.

Connection to feelings – Emotional literacy is recognised by psychologists as a key factor in successfully dealing with many of life’s most complex issues.

Call to Adventure

The call might show up as a painful wake-up. It’s an invitation to become the hero in your life. You’ll probably refuse it at first. Over time, the call grows louder, allies appear to help you on your way, and the pain of staying stuck grows more acute.

Separation

Once you’ve decided to answer the call … prepare for the abrupt separation from what you’re used to.
