brian-2Welcome to the Wild Man Project, my project to help Men become the best people they can be. I want to help you, or the Men in your life become the happiest, healthiest, and most passionate people possible. I am doing it in a number of ways. First and foremost, I am developing a coaching program especially designed for Men to help them one-on-one. I am also working on books, Compact Disc sets, webinars, and subscription programs to help.

Right now there is a crisis of Manhood in our culture: we are struggling to keep up with a world that is changing very quickly, and often leaving us behind. A lot of men feel lost, unhappy, or unwanted right now. We have fallen on hard times in work, school, and love alike. I know, I’ve struggled with the new realities of Manhood my whole life. I want to do my part to make a change.

What I want for every Man who visits my site is:

  • A healthier love and sex life.
  • A meaningful connection to their family.
  • Better physical fitness.
  • A sense of belonging and community.
  • A life lived with Integrity.
  • Greater self-knowledge.
  • High self-esteem and a better self-image.
  • Higher performance in work or school.
  • A sense of power and control over his world.
  • A career he is passionate about.
  • Overall greater happiness.

I believe, like the great poet Robert Bly that every man has a person within him who is wild, courageous, powerful, and passionate. We feel him in the rush we get when we are doing things we love. I also believe that we need to be in touch with that Wild Man to be truly happy. I want to teach you how to invite him into your everyday life.

Sometimes it can be hard to find your way into that world, or to find the best way to bring it out and share it with others. The obstacles can be anything from procrastination, to stress, from poor time management skills, to lack of confidence… even relationships can drain away the energy we need to bring that world out to share it with others.

I want to make a pledge to you right now, that however I help, I will do so with my feet on the ground, and absolute honesty. I will not wrap my ideas up in a cloud of New-Age ideas or feel-good fluff. If you want to work with me I promise to be straight-up and honest with you. If you need comfort, I will listen; if you need guidance, I will point you in the right direction; if you need a kick in the ass, I’ll give you that, too.

With Honour, Warmth, and Respect


Brian C. Rideout,
