Thank you, Matt!
Four Quick NWTA Questions
When and where was your NWTA?
September 10-12, 2006, at Camp Augusta, Nevada City, CA
What motivated you to attend the NWTA?
First, I wanted to have a moving experience to both celebrate the attainment of my Bachelor’s degree and continue my path of spirituality and self-awareness. Second, I wanted to learn more about the techniques the men in my I-Group were using to process their own issues as well as assist other men in the circle.
If a man asked you why he should attend, what would you tell him?
I would tell him to attend if he needed a new starting point in his life to begin living life in a way that tended toward balance or at least a more conscious awareness to the state of his own balance. Most importantly, I would say that a man should attend the NWTA if he feels it in his heart.
What keeps you in the ManKind Project?
These things, for me, are: the unique and powerful connection to a conscious and heartfelt community of men; a place to look at myself with the aid of other men; a place to express my spiritual connection with the earth; and an organization that supports me to challenge my vision of myself and to learn and grow. Other than those things I stay in the Mankind Project because I have always dreamed of something like this so I am living my dream by doing it.
