Michael Boyle is a facilitator, leadership consultant and student of mythology. He has an MA in psychotherapy from City University and has worked in several prisons including as a facilitator for the Inside Circle project at Folsome prison, Sacramento USA. He is a certified leader and leader trainer for the ManKind Project (mankindproject.org), a global men’s network and is the founder of the award winning charity, Abandofbrothers, a rites of passage and mentoring programme for disaffected youth.

As a Founding Associate of Olivier Mythodrama, a creative leadership consultancy, he works internationally with senior leaders of corporations and NGOs (www.oliviermythodrama.com) Michael’s experience of working with men has led him to believe that there are particular and vital issues related to masculinity which remain unaddressed in mainstream education and are seldom acknowledged in our culture. These contribute directly to excess violence, depression, irresponsibility and unbounded egotism in men with a consequent impact on society. He has a particular interest in Rites of Passage for young men as an alternative to prison.
