MKP-Northern California

The Northern California Center of The ManKind Project® is a diverse, vital and potent community of men committed to empowering men to live from a place of integrity, authenticity and service. We are creating a world of love, healing and growing consciousness.

We support men to live into their full potential, encouraging them to co-create the healthy solutions needed within our society for a more safe and just world. We foster loving families, strong communities, and healthy workplaces in a sustainable environment.

There are more than 2,000 New Warriors in the Northern California Community. New Warriors are men that have been initiated through attending the New Warrior Training Adventure. This powerful training program is held five times a year in Northern California, as well as throughout the United States and other parts of the world. Please see our Upcoming Events for the training dates in Northern California:

Our Nor Cal community stretches from Monterey and Santa Cruz in the south up through the heart of the Bay Area including Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland and Walnut Creek, and then north to the Oregon border through the coastal counties of Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino and Humboldt. The Center stretches east from Vacaville and Davis, through the Sacramento area and up into the foothills of the Sierra Mountains including Grass Valley, Nevada City and Reno.

Our intention as a community of powerful men is to:

  • Enable men to live lives of integrity, accountability, and connection to feeling
  • Be of service to the community at large, both as individual men with a renewed sense of passion and personal purpose, and as circles of men working together to build vibrant, sustainable communities.

Men within our community are taking action to create a better world by living their personal missions and being of service in however they choose.

There are more then 50 on-going MKP men’s circles, or Integration Groups, in the Northern California Community.  Integration Groups (or I-Groups) vary in their admission policies, but generally invite men who are currently known to members, or who have completed the New Warrior Training Adventure. These groups generally meet once a week in the evening, and are a continuation of the process of doing personal work around life issues raised during the training weekend, and that continue to arise in one’s own personal life journey. Many of our I-Groups are open to visitors.

We also host several Open Men’s Circles throughout Northern California which are open to any man to join, and which are supported and facilitated by MKP men who are seasoned in leading men’s groups. Learn more about our Open Circles on our MeetUp.com site at http://www.meetup.com/ncalopen

The ManKind Project is a global nonprofit [501 (c)(3)] charitable organization that conducts challenging and highly rewarding programs for men at every stage of life. The ManKind Project supports a global network of peer-facilitated men's groups where men mentor men through the passages of their lives. The ManKind Project empowers men to missions of service, supporting men to make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children around the world. We help men through any transition, men at all levels of success, men facing almost any challenge. Our flagship training, described by many as the most powerful men's training available, is the New Warrior Training Adventure. The ManKind Project (MKP) is not affiliated with any religious practice or political party. We strive to be increasingly inclusive and culturally aware.
