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.

The Training Team Lead by Anthony Dykstra LEAD GEL and Brent Nacu, Training Team Manager gave the men their hearts and energy throughout the event. Great fun was had, Superb food was served and the accommodations were warm and comfortable.
In short, I love the Legacy Discovery and what it offers the men – in the weekend experience and on the training team.
Back Story 1:

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.

Back Story 2:
After I graduated my LD in October of 2006, I have been on every Legacy discovery training team since and have had the joy, pleasure and challenge of being Shaman, and each of the archetypes in that time. I have attended Legacy Discoveries in the Southwest Region and Toronto. In my rich, long life, I have been a partĀ of many weekend growth experiences and have found immense value in the Legacy Discovery for several reasons.
The Legacy Discovery
  • Trains trainers to be better public speakers, to think and act quickly, within the context of any situation which may pop-up during an event
  • 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.
I constantly use skills and concepts I learned in 2006 in my business and personal life roles and know that I am far more successful and well received as a person because of the Legacy Discovery. Opportunities to participate, be on the production or training teams are available to almost every man and the value from this goes wide and deep and, in many ways is indescribable.
As a result of my devotion to the Legacy Discovery, I am a stronger, richer, brighter and more congenial man, businessman, friend and father. I live in a context of security, optimism, camaraderie and ability. And I have the support of other men with Legacy Discovery training so that I may share, contrast and celebrate my life with them.
I am ever grateful for MDI and the Legacy Discovery and am yours in service.
