I just had my NWTA weekend. Amasing. I can't stop going over the processes I went through. It was different going to work today. I am a changed man.

:) all round!

I had a great time and learned a great deal when I staffed too.  The next time Tim we both staff on the same weekend I want it in the same place.   I am willing to drive south in the Fall or spring hint hint or even Winter.

Summer too.

I just returned Sunday from my rookie staffing. It was action packed with a lot of ups and downs, and I got what I went for, which was

  • to experience the weekend again
  • to serve in the initiation process
  • to restore the sharpness my initiation gave me


For the course of my life, the third is crucial. We get lazy, unfocused, dull, and hypnotized by old routines and habits. We gradually lose the will and inspiration to pursue change in our lives. Now the challenge is to maintain that sharpened edge on a daily basis. I am working on some things, and may share them later.

I would definitely staff again.

Cassidy look within yourself.

It is not about what an Org is or is not.  We sometimes as humans invent what we things things should be or are.   Most of what we see things to be before they happen are not real.    How to you enter the weekend is how you need to live your life.   Enter your life first see how you need to be.  The weekend is the start of something bigger it is a change that comes from within and before you can change you have to understand what it is you need to do to change.   It is not about MKP it is about who you are as a man.  So much in this world is put upon us as men.    What this meant for me 19 years ago was me becoming more real.  Me making connections with other men who were also real and a man of their word with integrity and accountable.   Some go through the motions and never really become a man who is real and is there and it present and is strong and weak and feels things.   I feel things and when I say I am going to be somewhere or do something I am there.   Look at your self and see where you are and why you are thinking this way.  As I said before there are many ways to do this.  MKP provides a network of men that if you play your cards right becomes a place where you can grow and learn about yourself more.   And for any man who did not get what they wanted that is on them.  It is more an inner journey on the weekend not an outer one.

well said Tim

Cassidy, I am replying to your post asking if it was possible to be too cynical about MKP. In all my various retreat and weekend experiences I have found that if I go into them with specific and overly high expectations, I was in actuality sabotaging the experience. I am quite emotional inside, and often wrestle through things, and can be "hypervigilant", monitoring myself, how much or little I am bonding, or how much I need my own space to deal with my inner battles. Outwardly, that might not show. I have found it best to "be in the current moment" and not try to "force" things to happen. I did not form strong frendships during my NWTA because as you can tell from what you read thus far, I was busy with my own thoughts and feelings. It is much healthier to see the NWTA as a kickoff and an initiation into a brotherhood that is supposed to grow in your local I-group. Being open and flexible to the experience is helpful. Without giving away any details, i can say confidently that what you encounter when you begin on Friday is not what the entire weekend will be like. Your HOBY sounds like a maddening monotony, which NWTA is not. Some processes had more meaning for me than others. Hold onto what means something to you, and forget what may not. As long as you make a sincere effort to be honest (faking does no good), open, and willing, and appreciate that fact that YOU always have the option of opting out of any process, so there is no compulsion to fear any imposed conditions. I had some unreasonable fears for a while, and was glad to see that they were totally my invention. You know that you will get out of anything what you put into it. Also, our minds tend to run about a day behind when it comes to assimilating our experiences. So withholding judgement is a good attitude to maintain until the entire weekend is complete. In  my case, Iron John was not a major impact, but allow it to be whatever positive it can for you. The lingo or transformative myth as you call it is not the most important thing. Allowing your own truth to come forth from you is.

The Crypto-Catholic Background of A Jamestown Leader

A Skeleton, a Catholic Relic, and a Mystery About American OriginsA newly discovered artifact buried with one of Jamestown’s most prominent leaders suggests he could have been a crypto-Catholic.The finding is a historical bombshell, unearthed in a grave on the site of what was once the first church built at Jamestown. Which means researchers may have just discovered proof of an underground community of Catholics—including Archer and perhaps the person who buried him with the relic—who pretended…See More
