2018 NWTA (New Warrior Training Adventure) Oct 19-21 at Dancing Deer near Templeton, CA 

The New Warrior Training Adventure: A life-changing 48 hour experience brought to you by the ManKind Project, an international nonprofit organization.

WHAT IS IT: The New Warrior Training Adventure is a REAL TIME hero’s journey. It is the challenge of a lifetime for many men. It’s safe, supportive and cutting edge. It is NOT a retreat, a conference or a workshop. It is NOT like anything you’ve done before. Many men say that this experience is second only to seeing and supporting the birth of their children.

HOW LONG IS IT: Exact times vary, but 5 PM FRIDAY until 4 PM SUNDAY is usual.

WHAT YOU WILL GET: You’ll get more than you’re willing to hope for: purpose, passion, vibrancy, joy, healing, connection to self, new energy, clarity, power, freedom, understanding, brotherhood, trust. Over 63,000 men have now taken this journey, and every man’s experience has been unique.

WHAT DOES IT COST: Prices vary according to location, average is $675 US (CAD$650, FR €520, AUD$985, ZAR3800, DE €600, NZD$795, UK £595). This includes all accommodations, meals and materials. Financial assistance and payment plans are often available. Prices subject to change, please contact a local community for specific event information.

WHO RUNS IT: The ManKind Project. We are a 32 year-old brotherhood of nonprofit organizations around the world with a proven track-record of helping men grow, flourish, and build community. We want your life to be ALL that you want it to be. We want you to be healthy in mind, body and spirit, to feel valuable and powerful as a mature man in the world. We want a culture that is safe, supportive and vibrant for our partners, families, kids and grand-kids. If you want that too, then take this to heart – this training will have a profound impact on you and all those you care about.

The ManKind Project is a global nonprofit [501 (c)(3)] charitable organization that conducts challenging and highly rewarding programs for men at every stage of life. The ManKind Project supports a global network of peer-facilitated men's groups where men mentor men through the passages of their lives. The ManKind Project empowers men to missions of service, supporting men to make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children around the world. We help men through any transition, men at all levels of success, men facing almost any challenge. Our flagship training, described by many as the most powerful men's training available, is the New Warrior Training Adventure. The ManKind Project (MKP) is not affiliated with any religious practice or political party. We strive to be increasingly inclusive and culturally aware.
