Thank you for posting this stuff. I recently came upon your 2007 project about the Mankind Project and they are still unfortunately, twistedly, going strong in convincing men to pay $750 for a weekend where they use incredibly abusive techniques - my husband just fell prey to them as his therapist pushed this on him for years.

This article came out a few years after your blog post:

and this YouTube video from a survivor I found as well:

My husband left midway through the weekend as did another man, and two others canceled beforehand due to doubts, and so we reached out to the attendees to offer support and received seriously hateful responses insulting both my husband and myself and claiming we were liars.

Keep posting!!
