I have not updated this site recently, so thought I would capture this email I wrote in response to a press inquiry: ____, I am excited to hear of your article in Japanese! Here in Tokyo, we have just begun translating into Japanese one of Mankind Project’s introductory workshops. My name is Rob Nugen. I joined MKP in 1997 at the age of 27. It was during my initiation weekend that I realized I was a man. [Read more...]
The Mission Workshop was a great success tonight, with 8 men in attendance. We tapped in to our Little Boys Deepest needs, then visualized an ideal world with the needs met. Where everyone has had this deepest need met. What kind of world is it? _________, ___________, ____________. Then we went back to this ideal world and found ourselves living within it. Not only living, but interacting and behaving in new ways in this ideal world. [Read more...]

The men’s circle now meets every Tuesday. New men are welcome on the first Tuesday each month. Email tokyo [@] mkpjapan dot org to get information about the meeting location.
The co-gender circle will meet every Monday starting in February. Soon the men’s circle will meet every week as well, I am fairly certain.
We had a great meeting last night with seven men in the circle. This month has 5 Tuesdays, so normally we would skip the 5th Tuesday. This month we will have a meeting on the 5th Tuesday. Soon I imagine we will meet every Tuesday and have the co-gender group meet on a different day.
Tonight the co-gender group had its first meeting after our initial 8 meetings. Two new people came and seemed keen enough that they will attend again. I did a process which helped people see the value of emotional clearing work: Feeling: anger at my wife because she buys crap she does not need Anger source: helpless, feeling sadness that consumerism is polluting earth Feel sadness where: actually not in my body, like it’s out in front of me, like I have lost touch with my groundedness How to regain groundedness: go climb a tree, reconnect with nature So to recap, my anger at my wife is really hiding sadness about my own disconnect from nature.

Pressure to feel upbeat can make you feel downbeat, while embracing your darker moods can actually make you feel better in the long run, according to new UC Berkeley research. “We found that people who habitually accept their negative emotions experience fewer negative emotions, which adds up to better psychological health,” said study senior author Iris Mauss, an associate professor of psychology at UC Berkeley.

Seven men in attendance tonight, including two new men.
(posted by Takeshi on Facebook) The men’s group is a safe place to discuss anything that is weighing on our hearts out minds. Anything that is said in the group remains in the group. It’s not a social gathering; there’s no smoking, drinking, eating.. But we are a close knit group. Over time we get to know each other well, and this requires a commitment to the work.. this is really a commitment to yourself to improve yourself and become the man you are meant to be.
