For the first half of the hour, Bill Kauth shares about his vital work with The ManKind Project, an organization dedicated to building community among men and supporting them in discovering within themselves radical personal responsibility, emotional authenticity, leadership mastery, and empowered purpose.
For the second half of the program, we’re joined by Zoe Alowan, who is Bill’s co-author on the recently released book, We Need Each Other: Building Gift Community, which describes why building community has been so difficult and how we can forge ahead and create truly sustainable and nurturing communities in a new way.
In 1984 while working as a psychotherapist and business consultant, Bill conceived and co-founded the New Warrior Training Adventure, a rite-of-passage for adult men into healthy masculinity. This training is presented by The ManKind Project with 43 centers in 8 countries around the world, with 50,000 graduates. In 1992 St. Martin’s Press published Bill’s book, A Circle of Men: The Original Manual for Men’s Support Groups which remained in print for 15 years. Over the last two decades Bill also co-founded the Spiritual Warrior, the Inner King Training, and in 1995 the Warrior-Monk Training Retreat.
Zoe Alowan has been actively engaged in sacred art for many decades. As a painted, sculptor, dancer, puppeteer, mime and story teller, her work explores transformation and healing. Her life is about reclaiming intrinsic essential wisdom and wholeness. She utilizes the inspiration of the divine feminine, humor, song, and ritual movement as ways of celebrating wholeness. She has taught at Esalen and the Naropa Institute, facilitates women’s groups and singing circles as well as intuitive process painting retreats. Following recent extensive visits to ancient temple sites sacred to the Goddess, Zoe is deeply committed to healing the “Gender Wars” and bringing about an understanding of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine.
