Boys to Men Arizona, along with a number of ManKind Project members, family and supporters organized a gathering to support survivors and educate about Domestic Violence. "Circle of Men: Standing Against Domestic Violence" brought together over 125 residents from the Prescott, AZ area to share, support and encourage a new paradigm of masculinity that makes Domestic Violence a thing of memory, not daily experience for so many women, children and men in our culture.
Thank you to the families of Arizona who made this possible - to Boys to Men and to the ManKind Project Men of AZ.
The Chairman of the ManKind Project, George Daranyi, along with Earl Hipp, author of "ManMaking; Men Helping Boys on Their Journey to Manhood" were featured in a 35 minute section of the Daily Male Radio program on 104.1 TheTruth in Tucson, AZ.
This is a wide-ranging interview that covers the challenges of men 'awakening' to our responsibility in the 21st century - to embrace a fully mature masculinity, recreate male relationships, and reclaim our role in helping to raise boys to become good men. They spend time exploring the historic role of men's rite of passage experiences and the consequences of having lost the clear multi-generational teaching, mentoring and cultural reinforcement that could be helping us solve the crisis in masculinity. Violence, disconnection and 'sleep-walking' so common in today's men and boys can be addressed by men who are dedicated to confronting their fears and 'doing the work' that it takes to become authentic, mature, and compassionate men.
Hipp explores effectively stepping up to help boys become powerful and compassionate men through Boys to Men Mentoring programs, which are expanding nationwide and around the world. George and Earl, along with the show's hosts, one of whom is also a New Warrior, do a nice job breaking down some of the problems facing modern men and they offer possibilities for stepping back onto the field of your life with a renewed sense of purpose and connection to mature masculinity.
The ManKind Project exists to reclaim the lost legacy of men mentoring men to create cultural norms that work for the good of the society. Today's men need to be compassionate, respectful and empathetic along with possessing the fierce power of integrity and purpose that it will take to overcome the self-centered 'me first' culture of masculinity that has overtaken most of the dialogue about masculinity, and build cooperative and fully responsible communities.
You're invited to confront your own fears and step up to the door. We need good men.
