Buy the book Toxic Faith By Arteburn. The changes in your husband have all the earmarkings that he is in a cult but he won't see it that way. Also seek professional help witha therapist who is familair with cults.
Good Luck and God Bless

I am really concerned about this cult. I would like to paste bits of what your experiences have been on a blog. I wouldn't identify where this came from, but only that which you have posted, to shine a light on the dark nature of this cult.

May I have permission to do this? I think it will truly help put at least a chink in the machinations of these predators.

Thank you.

Best wishes to you all,
MM

Why not just post links to the thread and offer a few short quotes and comments about the contents of the thread?

That would be fine and within "fair use" standards.

hello all,

My guess is that I won't be on this board long because you seem to ban people who hold opinions that challenge your own. My guess is that you have been hurt by cults or cultlike oganizations and I wish for you that you recover from those wounds. I also wish for you that you can focus your energy on groups that are destructive. If MKP is destructive then I applaud you for pointing that out. My guess is that at some points it has been. My experience shows me that much of it is good and I support that work. I think it'd be cool if some of the wives of new warriors got on here. My experience is that many women with new warrior husbands love it! Their men are now showing up for their kids and their wives in a real and powerful way! They understand their anger and it doesn't come out in violent outbursts against the people they love.

Some of the ways MKP is helpful to me:

1) emotional literacy. I understand my emotions. If I get angry at my girlfriend it's not ok to go into a tantrum. I take that to my igroup get it out of my system and THEN show up for her in a loving way.

2) integrity. If I say that I am going to do something I may tell my Igroup about it. They then will check in with me to see if I did that. If I didn't then I am out of integrity with myself (and maybe others). The igroup tells me the truth and tells me if I am being a liar. If I am consistently not doing what I say then they let me know that I am screwing up.

3) mission. My igroup encourages me to find out what cause I need to serve in this world and then act on it. If I am in a family my mission is probably going to include them.

I see a common misperception being talked about. Igroups are run by the men sitting in the circle. The MKP leadership runs trainings and seminars. They are not directly involved in what happens in an igroup. There is no central leadership that is directly involved in a mans experience. They are present for training weekends that only last for 2 days! The vast majority of the time a person is involved they are working with their peers.

Anyway, it works for me! I don't assume it would work for everyone.[/i]

...I saw a MKP booth at a conference this year, and absolutely no one was interested. I asked the sole guy there if he heard of LE and he feigned ignorance...which I'm sure he had, just not about that. I stopped him in mid diatribe and walked away.

My view point is mine and take it with a grain of salt. I have done a lot of transformational work. I read these just prior to attending Man Kind project and it actually made me apprehensive.But due to a horrific trauma this was recommended by a friend.

Mkp isn't a cult in any way. By definition it does not even qualify or come close.

Mkp is about men having integrity, family oriented, non religious, but spiritual in the sence of self reflection and learning to feel. If her husband were to have an affair, mkp will not be the place.

Sadly I have learned about many personality disorders as my divorce was in the top 1% of worse case scenarios. How could someone who loves another lash out like this? Typically it is some or many personality disorders.

Abusive people with pds hate boundaries and also do not like when their friend family or partner gets healthy because they lose their power control so they lash out vs looking for solution. The lady above matches this description.

I was blinded by my own pain and could not see my abusers pain until mkp. And now for the first time in 4 years have deep compassion for her even though she is lashing out all over the place.

The first writer is so completely out of integrity and I wish I hadn't read it prior to going. Omg, I have very healthy boundaries now after years of therapy and after reading i thought that I'd be utilizing all my skills. Safty and choice is there #1 concern and due to my anxiety/depression caused by my divorce and marriage. the course leaders checked in many times to ask how i was.
And if you wish to pass on any activity you can. I didn't because I wanted my life back which by the way, I got. Not everyone is up to rigorous self reflection and this transformational work is very powerful.

I wanted to get my old self back prior to divorce and that is what I did. The igroups are a place where we continue to develop integrity, male friendships, ongoing self reflection.

After attending many seminars and transformational work, this is amazing stuff. And not everyone is going to love it as much as I do.

To whom it may concern:

Mankind Project is a controversial training program that has a history personal injury litigation, complaints, bad press and controversy.

Anyone considering such training should do research before becoming involved.

See [www.culteducation.com]

Based upon this history I would not recommend Mankind Project to anyone for anything at any time.

There are far safer more viable alternatives such as counseling provided by a licensed professional, community support groups, continuing education at an accredited institution or if you have a specific problem talking with friends, family or a respected mentor you know.

Large group awareness training groups like Mankind Project have been the focus of much controversy bad press and allegations of abuse.
