Being a Man in Today’s World is Challenging!

Are you being the best partner, father, or example to others? Are you prepared to be a great man? Are you living life with a spiritual foundation? This is an action call to a powerful journey of learning to live a life of high integrity!

Hi! I'm Coach Phil Donihe, and I'll be facilitating a group of men, primarily for ages 18-40, who want to create greater success in all areas of their lives. We will study the book Be Brave and Arise together, and I will guide you through a new and deeper understanding of how to leverage and grow your character strengths. This is an action group, so you will set ambitious, yet realistic, goals and achieve them in a systematic way.

A man provides his thoughts:

“When I hear ‘Be Brave’ I feel empowered and ennobled. It honors the weight of the dark forces I face in the world each day, as we are truly heading out into a horrific and dangerous battlefield. Nothing other than true heroism, self-effacement, fearlessness, and ultimate detachment seem to be called for in this day when the forces of darkness think they are winning the battle of life.

“The call to be brave and arise also tells me that I have great opportunity for heroism, and for achieving our ultimate objective which is nearness to God. I appreciate that someone believes I can handle the raw truth and has faith in my inner strength. It’s a call to arise to something greater than myself, regardless of what I perceive my strengths to be, and it’s a call to nobility. And that empowers me."

We live in a world with few and inconsistent moral standards, and most behaviors, at least at the level of media, are portrayed as acceptable.

With negative news abounding, political leaders willing to say or do almost anything that suits their immediate purpose, long-standing organizations and institutions in decline, and the level of trust and respect for other people declining, sometimes it can seem like our society is falling apart in front of our eyes.

In the middle of the chaos of some aspects of our human society, gems of shining hope can be seen. The light of principles-based living exists and is spreading. The Be Brave Action Group is one of those gems.

You are not on this journey alone. The Be Brave Action Group was created to walk alongside you with a spiritually-based approach to life, backed up with systematic approaches that enable practical translation of principles from the Baha'i Faith into daily life. You do not need to be a Baha'i to participate and benefit.


You may not know yet the personal satisfaction, self-confidence, and empowerment that comes from striving to achieve personal integrity with clear, purposeful goals. You may not yet have in place people to support your progress with honesty and encouragement. The Be Brave Action Group will sharpen your vision and give you the accompaniment, process, and tools for how to achieve these and more.

The Be Brave Action Group is a spiritually-based and powerful process towards self-mastery led by a coach with decades of experience with coaching men to have strong character and achieve their goals in life.

Finally, a systematic approach, with a spiritual foundation, coaching, collaboration with others, and specific goals and actions that leverage character strengths enables you to create a new level of self-mastery!
