What I got out of the NWTA

I did the NWTA after about 2 months of attending the Victoria iGroup.  I now have an unshakable and true sense of my own worth and that of others, a deep experience of self-love, and a real connection with others on that basis, which means that everybody wins.  I also have a sense of meaning and purpose and of how I should live.  I also have a community of brothers to support me in becoming the best man I can be, and for whom I can be such a support. I also have memories to last a lifetime.…

Technology, such as this site, is a means … a tool that to be used in order to a better job with what we are already trying to accomplish - our mission. These technology tools are not a replacement for good strategy and processes, but neither should the tools be left out of the discussion. One on one contact with people continues to be a key focus in helping men know that ManKind Project is here. Technology and this web site are both tools that help us achieve this goal.

The Jungle's Edge - by Marjorie Fish (edited by Ann and Richard Fairchild)

My grandmother wrote a book about colonial life in British Malaya in the 1910s through to the mid 1930s.   She was the mistress of a rubber plantation, having married the manager in Ceylon and moved to the Far East a few weeks later.  I would love to hear feedback on the text and on the forward.

"If" by Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; 
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, 
But make allowance for their doubting too; 
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, 
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies, 
Or, being…

The End of Men

In the early 21st century men’s roles are in a profound state of flux, as the worst recession in since the 1930’s has destroyed millions of male jobs. Men are facing an uncertain future and a starker choice: adapt or perish.  


So says the promotional text for another high quality CBC Doc Zone presentation of "The End of Men".   Check it out by reading the article and/or viewing the promotional video extract.

Raven Loves The West Coast - and everywhere Canada

The older I get the more patriotic I become.   I have always admired my own country.   I love our national spirit, which has become more and more clear and definite about itself over the last 40 years.   As a man among men I have a certain pride about my country that I want to be able to continue unabated into the future.   Our leaders may have spent money on the Olympics rather than on child poverty, but right now today - I am proud to be Canadian.   …

Shining Raven Is Told To Calm Down

The doctor has spoken.   Prayer, meditation, mindfulness, calm-centeredness, not thinking or talking so much are all on.   Squawking all the time is not on.   That is hard my friends.  But in that spirit another man shared this link on u-tube.    I like it a lot.    Click to view.   Ojibwa Prayer

Shining Raven Reveals The Light

There are many Raven Tales, but the one about Raven Bringing The Light is perhaps the best known and the most loved.


Raven is environmentally aware.   Even when it is by accident instead of design.


I happen to like a lot this Greenpeace sponsored advertisement that appeared on British TV a couple of years ago.  Click here for it.   British Hydro Commercial

Raven Breaks The Speed Limit

Friday I received an e-mail from a brother stating how he felt about a series of thoughtless comments I had made to him. Without accusation or blame he suggested that I might be acting politically rather than out of love and respect for others.

He called it. I own it.

I feel sad.

My resolve - my want - is to slow down and operate out of the calm place inside me. When I do I feel empowered and people around me feel heard and respected. Within,…
