Men mentoring men thru the passages of their lives.
I like to kick things around and test out ideas and debate and see what I can learn from others and perhaps change my views and my life. Other times I just like being silly. So, this is a place to kick stuff around and be serious or silly or whatever. The views expressed herein may not be that of the management.....
I hear many initiated men complain about how there have been tens or hundreds of men take a NWTA and attend I Group once or twice, or even for a number of years, and then 'disappear' to do other stuff. That is a viewpoint that regards ones allegiance to the agent of change (an MKP Weekend, an MKP Group) as the main criteria of whether the MKP program works; as opposed to seeing a man go forth into the world to do what he conceives to be his mission (with hardly a look backward) as one of, if not the primary goal of MKP.
The more we fuss about not enough men helping out, the more we focus on how many 'active' men we have and how much money our community or MKP Canada etc has, rather than on being the change we want, the more we will decline.
Equally the more we change our program to assist us in recruiting men, the more we may loose our identity --- and move from being a movement that wants to change the world one man at a time to one that wants to be a premier training organization, or a shill for some particular sociological or political viewpoint.
For this reason I suggest that we will loose our identity and fail to fulfill our vision/mission if we do not pay very careful attention to our sources of funding, and any corporate or special interest sponsorships we may accept, or public policy pronouncements that we as a local men's group and/or national organization would like to make.
If you want to engage this kind of viewpoint, check out my blog - or come on back to me here. :)
OK, INTRODUCE A SUBJECT AND LETS GO, BRO!
