Sixteen men arrived on Friday, October 19 evening at a beautiful site outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where they were welcomed warmly and lead to engage in 2-1/2 days of the Legacy Discovery Training Experience.
In order to broaden and enhance the Legacy Discovery and to help develop more uniformity internationally, I was given the opportunity to represent the Western Region at Toronto’s LD, where I was honored to lead three very impactful modules of the event and to experience the support and response of the training team of the Toronto Region. In addition to the training team, there were visitors, which included the President and finance manager of MDI and other men who have made significant contributions to the growth and power of the LD and to MDI as a whole. I had a chance to meet face-to-face with “voices” I had been with on organizational calls over the years.

- Touches on every area of a man’s life where he may be challenged or have growth opportunities
- Gives men perspective of four archetypal behaviors (and their shadow aspects); this helps men self-inspect and manage behavior and relationships wisely
- Provides participants with rare opportunities to go deep into their wishes, fears and doubts in a safe, confidential environment
- Is a place where men learn from the deep inner reaches of men’s lives and develop empathy and supportive skills they will use for the rest of their lives
- Has a variety of exercises, games, and ceremonies so men remain sharp and in the game at all times
- Whole-heartedly embraces men from all walks of life into the fold in order to emerge at the end with a transformed sense of liberation from discrimination
- Has no religious or political position, and such issues are discussed, only where they are relevant to a participant’s understanding of the event
- Welcomes men with medical conditions, diet restrictions or physical disabilities, with every reasonable accommodation made to insure them a rich and successful experience.
