Texas Elders

The Texas Elders is a part of the South Central Region of the Mankind Project.  There are over 12,000 men in Texas and Louisiana who have gone through the New Warrior Adventure Training Weekend over that last 27 years. The MKP Elder community host events for men in the community as well as all other men who are interested in learning growing and connecting with other men.


We create a conscious world by building a vibrant, welcoming elder community through authentic intimate conversations and learning, while growing spirituality.

Where Conversations Matter

We invite you to join us on a journey of discovery in the ancient wisdom tradition of growing as a man. It’s free. Just show up to learn, reconnect with, and make new friends.  All men are welcome. The Elder community of The Mankind Project is hosting this series of experiential topics of interest to all men on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Men in our community will facilitate topics of their choosing that will support other men’s growth. Plan to attend the Fall Gathering of Men in Fall 2019.

The meeting is held the 2nd Saturday of each month from 930-1130. We will meet at The Council on Recovery located at 303 Jackson Hill St. Room B167. Houston, Texas.  Learn about our NEXT EVENT.
