School of Man Prep is a 6-week program that begins December 2019 and is the first step in the application process for School of Man Brotherhood Class 006. It is designed to help prepare you for the physical, mental, and emotional training you will receive in the SoM Brotherhood. At the end of the six weeks, you will participate in Selection, a test designed specifically for you to see if you truly want to set out on the path that has been shown to you. Participation in SoM Prep does not guarantee acceptance into the SoM Brotherhood. For information, please see the full product description.
The School of Man is a 12-month intensive program that covers all of the areas that make a Man: Body, Mind, Emotion, Intuition, and Warrior Spirit. You will be pushed, pulled, and twisted inside and out, with the goal of breaking you down to your foundation so that something better can be rebuilt there. Our job is to help you become a higher standard of Man and hone in on your WHY.
The initial 24 weeks of the program is designed to prepare you for The Crucible. Class 006 will participate in the first stage of The Crucible in May, a 24-hour test of mental, physical, and emotional endurance administered by members of the Special Ops Community. Completion of the 24-hour Crucible will earn you a Humble Warrior coin, the first step to earning your Phoenix. Following the Crucible, you will enter into a six month Mentor role, where you will share with your Class the responsibility of guiding and mentoring Class 007 through the program. Stage 2 of your Crucible will be at the 12-month mark. When Class 007 begins their 24-hour Crucible, Class 006 will continue their evolution with an additional 31 hours of being pushed past their limits. This culminates in earning your Phoenix and signifying to the world that you have been remade into The Forged.
With a proven formula, the SoM guarantees Man true growth, but only if he is hungry for it and willing to put in the hard work. The program covers topics that range from brotherhood, leadership, relationships, spirituality and religion, sex, parenting, and more. Rather than shying away from tough topics, Man will embrace these conversations with his fellow Men in a manner that is free of judgement and shame. As Iron sharpens Iron, so one Man sharpens another.
We believe that the School of Man is for EVERY Man, but not every Man is ready for it. There is no guarantee of acceptance into the program, and failure to uphold the standards set forth will result in dismissal from the Brotherhood.
WHY? Because only the hungry will truly benefit from the formula we have perfected. If you are lazy, proud, ego-driven, and believe you already have all the answers, then you will not thrive in this environment.
It begins with a three-step process:
Step 1: The Application
This is the "easy" part......so you would think. Nothing worth having ever comes easy. You will have to answer a series of questions strategically designed to open your heart and let us look inside. You may struggle with this, but rest assured that most Men do. However, we ask you to put your heart on the line and be as honest and earnest as you can be.
Step 2: The Interview
After reviewing your information, we will conduct an interview. This can be in person, on Zoom, or via call for those seeking admission as a Virtual Crew member. We are looking for Men who truly want to change their lives and change the world. We have developed the intuition to know if this is not right for you. No hard feelings, and if you are not chosen we do have another program we would recommend completing before applying for the brotherhood again.
Step 3: SoM Prep Academy into Selection
If you are chosen, an invitation will be extended for the 6-week SoM Prep work-up, and then through Selection. SoM Prep is to help prepare you for the physical, mental, and emotional training in the SoM and Selection is to see if you truly want it.
If chosen, you will be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement and Confidentiality Agreement. In the event you violate these agreements, we will take legal action on behalf of the brother whose information you have compromised along with violating the confidence of the SoM. We take this very seriously, and so should you.
Good luck, Warrior. You were created for a reason and you must find your WHY to truly leave a legacy of impact. A 3,000 mile journey always starts with the first step.
