First a little of our history: In the mid 1980s, three men from the Milwaukee, WI area — Ron Hering (an Educator), Rich Tosi (an Engineer / Manager), and Bill Kauth (a Therapist), had jointly taken notice of the various “Woman’s Circles and Trainings” occurring at the time and wondered why there was nothing similar available for men. This “void” was the impetus for them to collaborate and generate “Men’s Circles” via a weekend gateway experience which is now known as the “New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA)”. Many men who attended this training and participated in the Men’s Circles they fostered decided that it would be a good idea to share with the world what they themselves received from their involvement. Over 35 years later with more than 70 thousand men having attended the NWTA, the ManKind Project as a Non-Profit Volunteer Organization has more than 40 Regions / Areas and 100+ communities in over 20 countries around the world supporting “Men in Circles”.
A little about the Wisconsin New Warrior Community: The Wisconsin Area of the Mankind Project USA is comprised of a volunteer membership that has attended the NWTA and typically participates in our ongoing “Men’s Circles” (Which we refer to as “I-Groups” or Integration Groups). There are 4 New Warrior communities around the State and Rockford, IL. These men form a diverse, committed, and vibrant community of men who endeavor to empower themselves and others to live lives of integrity, authenticity, servant leadership, and mission. We strive to co-create together a world of healing, expanded self awareness, and compassion. Besides conducting related trainings, workshops, and I-Groups we also regularly have social events like potlucks, game nights, and community service days.
