“Gary Stamper’s vision of the new integral man is a refreshing departure from mythic visions of the past, but without abandoning their power or magic.” —Allan Combs, author of Consciousness Explained Better, and The Radiance of Being

“Awakening the New Masculine is a brave, exciting and significant contribution to one of the most important aspects of our time- the birth of a New Sacred Masculine capable of being fiercely and tenderly protective of the world and human life.” –Andrew Harvey, Author of The Hope a Guide to Sacred Activism

“Something very ancient and very new is being presented here!  Gary Stamper is bringing together many disciplines, much experience, fine scholarship, and good writing style too.” — [Fr.] Richard Rohr,O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, NM (Author of Wild Man to Wise Man and Adam’s Return)

“Awakening the New Masculine: The Path of the Integral Warrior is a call to all men everywhere to pay attention to the powerful evolutionary forces that are waking up and being activated at this pivotal time of change on planet Earth. Gary Stamper has done a masterful job of pulling together various integral and visionary shamanic approaches to assist the change that is greatly needed for not only men of all ages but also for the masculine that is ready to be activated within us all.” Linda Star Wolf, Author of 6 books including Visionary Shamanism: Activating the Imaginal Cells of the Human Energy Field

“Gary has woven many strands together into a strong and flexible fabric.  He combines Integral theory, Archetypal Psychology, and men’s issues into a readable, useful book with real practical value. This cogent and intelligent book describes the evolving masculine in a way that educates without being preachy, and encourages inner development without resorting to cheerleading or ego stroking.  It speaks the truth about men and masculinity, then offers practical step-by-step processes that a man, or group of men, can use to move toward greater integrity, balance, and fullness.  If you’re already committed to your own self development, read this book.  If you’re new to men’s work, this book is a great place to start.” —  Lion Goodman, Director of Men’s Programs, The Shift Network, Author of “Menlightenment: A Book for Awakening Men

“Viva la evolución! Gary Stamper’s ability to synthesize multiple memes of the evolutionary urge is admirable — and right on time. There’s always another adventure waiting on the outskirts of consciousness, it takes time walking at the edge of the dense forest before we see paths where once there were brambles. Stamper has revealed some paths for me with the Integral Warrior. I’ve been a part of a brotherhood of conscious men with the ManKind Project [MKP] for over seven years. The journey that began with my initiation at the New Warrior Training Adventure has completely changed my life. As we often say in MKP, the ‘journey continues’. The Integral Warrior series that Stamper outlines here fills in gaps that MKP’s 48 hour New Warrior Training Adventure isn’t designed to handle. I believe these next steps in growth are essential to battle the demons we face as a society. In the last three years, I’ve seen more and more synchronicity in the world of transformative work with the sacred masculine and feminine. The convergence of sacred activism, integral theory, somatic practices (like Shamanic Breathwork), and Jungian mythopoetics is, for me, the cutting edge. It’s a frightening and spectacular time to be a man, the possibilities for partnership, transcendence, and integration are stunning. The Integral Warrior sees the trees, and the forest, and the paths. If you’re hearing the call to a new initiation, this book might look more like a map.” ~ Boysen Hodgson, MKP USA Communications Director

Awakening The New Masculine, isn’t just another book. Gary’s program isn’t just another men’s group. His work is the cutting edge of integral/evolutionary consciousness on the planet. Gary helps men heal their shadow, wake up to their divine nature, and take responsibility for living as That in our world.” ~ Dr. Julianne Hanson, Maui

“Integral men’s visionary Gary Stamper recently rocked the room at our Atlanta Ken Wilber Meetup. After closely following Gary’s cutting edge work for years, we finally had the opportunity to host him for a lively, engagingly passionate, and stimulating (in all “three bodies!”) introduction to his Integral Warrior book and men’s group (I can see first hand how he incubated and built the large, thriving Seattle Integral group, before moving east). With his finger on the pulse of the convergence of Crises (economical, environmental, energy, population , social , political, etc ) cascading upon us, a new Consciousness is emerging with Gary as an Integral midwife. I highly recommend buying his book, attending his workshops and imbibing his passionate Message.”
~ Joe Garofalo, Atlanta, former moderator of Atlanta Integral

What Men Are Saying

“This process helped me get in touch with my fears around stepping into leadership roles in my life. Now that I have a full grasp of my internal process, I am much less apprehensive about taking on leadership tasks and find myself to be much more proactive in all aspects of my life! I highly recommend taking advantage of the Integral Warrior process that Gary so brilliantly facilitates!” — Chuck W., Asheville, NC

“I was able to clearly define my own weaknesses and struggles that appear whenever the warrior in me is repressed. Going much deeper than Mankind Project work, Gary also guided us through a study of the states and stages of masculine development in order to discover our deepest purpose and our mission. Gary is one of the most powerful facilitators that I have ever met. He was able to eloquently and artfully provide the framework for tracking the historical evolution of the world’s cultures, from primitive man to the present, and show how it applies as well to organizations and individuals. And he brings his own gold—integrity, humility, and the openhearted gift of his mission to the weekend.”

“For me, the workshop was the perfect blend of the cognitive (with the stimulating discussions about how individuals and cultures move from one level of consciousness to the next) and experiential (with the Shamanic journeys that he led with an almost hypnotic intensity). A final ritual ceremony (which we designed ourselves) allowed me to declare my ownership of the warrior archetype and all of its shadows.” — Larry B., Cincinnati, OH

“There has never been a better method of shaking the old paradigm to its foundation or of unleashing the true or new masculine the way that Gary does. He brings it! I feel more complete and whole as a person and more important to myself and loved ones. As a man, the process of integrating various aspects of masculinity is overdue. I feel like a fish that has been put back in the water, able to see other aspects that were invisible before the transformation into the integral warrior. Now I’m able to breathe for the first time as an awakened integrated soul thanks to Gary and the process he’s created. If you’re looking to expand your awareness and grow, this is the process for you.” — Robert M., Whittier, NC

“Here is what has changed since, during, and as part of my participating in the Integral Warrior process. Prior to going through the process, I was out of balance—my King knew it, my lover was suffering and withdrawn, and the magician had run out of tricks. I was basically in warrior mode, and it was affecting what I was manifesting into my life. As I went through this discovery process with you and my new brothers, I gradually realized that. Using the tools you brought, I eventually saw that I was missing the point. I gave into my life’s purpose … or at least rediscovered it! Here is a quote of mine that was recently published by a young man who conducted an online survey asking what my operating beliefs are. I would never have said this two years ago. ‘Be amused!’ If we take ourselves and our world too seriously we all suffer in fear and depression. We all love a good laugh, it makes us feel good. When we feel good, we are at our best, and when we are at our best we can overcome all of life’s challenges. So, I now have a running internal dialogue that focuses more on how I can ‘choose’ to be pissed off at what goes on in everyday life—or see how amusing it all really is. ‘I speak my truth’ has become much easier—I now realize that when I don’t speak my truth, whatever it was that I was avoiding would keep showing up. Funny, isn’t it! I share more deeply—with my loved ones and with perfect strangers. It makes for a brighter day, and all it takes is a kind word or compliment. And yes, I laugh more easily. I’ve always had a great sense of humor—I just misplaced it for a long while. Thanks, Gary. I worry less.” — Carl G., Cincinnati, Ohio

Simply put, I feel it will accelerate my growth. I strongly recommend making room for this weekend.”
