HOT Off the Press

Jun Po Dennis Kelly is well known and loved in the MKP Community. He’s a lineage holder in the ‘Hollow Bones’ Rinzai Zen order and a man with incredible wisdom and humor. A biography of Jun Po is now available on Amazon. It’s a powerful and (can we say it?) bizarre tale spanning decades of true Hero’s Journey. Check it out on Amazon.

Glitch Happens.

During delivery of the last Check In! Newsletter, our email system malfunctioned. Some men got A LOT of Check Ins. I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. We have fixed the problem with the system and we have put in place an extra check to keep things running cleanly.

A New Conversation with Men

Michael Taylor

Michael Taylor recently interviewed Bill Kauth about the foundations of the New Warrior Training Adventure, the ManKind Project, and Kauth’s current work with Zoe Alowan and the ‘gift community’ movement. Great interview. Thanks Michael.

Check out the interview here.

Also check out Michael’s new book: "A New Conversation with Men" – Taylor’s personal story of self-realization is a powerful recommendation for a new way of living as a man in the world.

It’s Not a Cult … share this.

Anyone who takes a serious look at the ManKind Project and the New Warrior Training Adventure knows that we’re the antithesis of a cult. We do, however, really tend to stir the pot in a man’s life … and that can be scary. We are unconventional.

For a lot of folks out there, the NWTA seems very threatening. At some point in the past it was probably threatening for most of the men who have done it!

Here’s a well written resource by a group not connected with MKP sharing one man’s evaluation of the New Warrior Training.
