The ManKind Project of Santa Barbara is a young and vibrantly active community of over 300 men, extending geographically along the central coast of California from Paso Robles/San Luis Obispo in the north to Camarillo in the south. We host two New Warrior Training Adventures each year – one in the early spring and the other in the fall. The men of our community meet with one another regularly in a group setting where we continue our work and deepen our understanding of what it means to live a life of purpose, service, and freedom.
Increasing public awareness of men’s work has been a focal point of our community’s social outreach program these last few years. We’ve hosted several local men’s conferences (the last one featured West African shaman Malidoma Somé) and in the spring of 2008 we sponsored a theatrical production of Iron John. A few months later came “An Evening with Robert Bly” and that event attracted almost 1,000 attendees.
We welcome all visitors and hope that you will choose to stay a while, share your wisdom and truth with us, and listen to what what we have to share with you.
