The New Warrior Training Adventure

A Gathering of men, about men, for men, by men.

December 1-3, 2017 (Friday Through Sunday)

All men welcome.

  • You’ll have the opportunity to look with fearless honesty at the life you’ve created, and make
    profound choices about what you want to keep, what you want to expand, and what
    you want to let go of.
  • You’ll discover your unique connection to manhood, explore a new way of understanding masculinity,
    and step fully into the man you envision yourself to be.
  • Learn to trust yourself and others in a deep and meaningful way.
  • You may find a new and exciting way to be of service to others, as well as yourself.

If you’re ready to make a bold choice, that door can be thrown wide open in this experiential training. The ManKind Project (a non profit group) presents this training for men called The New Warrior Training Adventure. At the NWTA, you’ll be challenged and supported to learn more about yourself in 48 hours than you’ve probably learned in the last 20 years. We know this because we have experienced it for ourselves and now we invite you to join us and give yourself this experiential adventure, for men, by men. Take A Risk… (if not now, when?) Come to a men’s weekend

Tuition $695 Register Here

Financial assistance and payment plans available. Space limited to 32 men from all walks of life. This is a non profit volunteer organization of men and is not affiliated with any formal religions or political ideologies.

All men are welcome.
