Anyone wanting to know what a Journey Into Manhood weekend is like, this is a good read:
Tim Cox - My Journey Into Manhood
Participants in these weekends are required to sign non-disclosure agreements, so I was a little surprised someone would write such a detailed account, but here it is. While the author is definitely going in as a skeptic intent on revealing the "secrets" of the experience, I think one can get a good idea of the approach being taken and some of the more controversial parts of the program.
My earlier impressions (based on private feedback) that this was a combination of corporate retreat team-building type activities and emotional bloodletting are largely confirmed. Some of it actually seems kind of creepy - some of it not. All of it includes a LOT of drama. But of course, this is only one person's perspective on the experience. I have friends who have attended who say they actually got a lot out of it.
Here's the People Can Change website. Read the story yourself from both sides of the aisle and draw your own conclusions...
