RMRM009 | Boysen Hodgson | The Mankind Project: Healing Our Men


[Listen on iTunes]

BOYSEN HOGDSON is the Marketing & Communications Director for The Mankind Project USA. He works with a small team of staff and volunteers to create marketing materials, strategies, and programs to support the work of the ManKind Project in mentoring men through the passages in their lives.

In this episode we discuss:

  • His mentor, Ray, who unified eighteen 1 room schoolhouses to form the very first elementary school system.
  • Letting ourselves be truly seen by other men.
  • The power and freedom of men healing themselves.
  • Being a father.

Quotes from this episode:

“The work that I do now with MKP is creating more men (like Ray Sant) to inspire others to see way bigger than they thought they could. I help men heal the parts of themselves that need to be healed in order to see themselves in a bigger context.”

“I learned I was capable of expressing myself in a  way that I didn’t think was possible. If I let that rage out it would consume me. If I let that grief be visible to the men around me it would consume me. I think that I’m not unique.”

“I learned that I could tell the truth in relationship and that I wouldn’t be rejected, even the parts of myself i thought were so ugly and horrible could be held.”
