When and where you can do a New Warrior Training Adventure in Australia in 2020.
The NWTA is a life-changing journey of initiation and self-examination. It’s a spiritual Rite of Passage that recreates the mythical Hero’s Journey for modern men. The NWTA has helped tens of thousands of individuals improve their lives by exploring and enhancing their connection to healthy, mature masculinity. This weekend-long learning experience will challenge, support and empower you to become more authentic, grounded and free as a man.
Individuals from all walks of life do the NWTA. Men like you. Gay, Bi, Non-binary and straight men. Fathers, sons, brothers, husbands and lovers. Tradies, professionals, office workers, athletes, business people, labourers, artists, soldiers, teachers – from every role in life. Individuals of all ages, races, faiths, nationalities and creeds are amongst our ranks and have benefited from improving their connection to the mature masculine.
Over 48 hours you’ll have the opportunity to take a good, hard look at the life you’ve created. What’s working, what’s not, and what do you want to change?
You’ll be challenged – and supported – to overcome your limitations. You’ll have the opportunity to face and work through some of the deep fears and wounds you carry – the things that keep your life from working the way you want.
You’ll form a deep connection with yourself, you’ll build deep connections with other individuals, and you’ll experience the love and support of a community of men working to better themselves and the world. You’ll come away with a clear sense of what you need to create lasting change. And you’ll know what steps you need to take to become more empowered and centred in your relationships to family, work and your community.
Being a man, with a son, I feel there is no manual that teaches what a good man does. This community supports me with the answers on that quest.
The Mankind Project and the New Warrior Training have made my life richer and fuller, and I recommend them to many of the men I meet.
I had no clue what it meant to be a man and how important it was to be accountable, responsible and congruent in my actions.
My New Warrior Training Adventure initiation weekend allowed me to really look myself in the eyes again, after so many years. What a miracle.
I was tuned-in to my emotional side but the NWTA enabled me to uncover and let live an aspect of myself I'd been repressing my entire life.
I walk taller after the NWTA. I'm able to be seen, with the courage to make mistakes, and able to be honest and open with others about myself.
The NWTA is a weekend, live-in camp that runs from around 6 pm, Friday to 3 pm, Sunday. There are activities and light-hearted challenges mixed into the schedule to make it both challenging and fun. We find that the more individuals open up to the processes, the more they get from the weekend. So, be prepared to step up emotionally, mentally and spiritually and physically.
Participants usually number around 30 with as many (or more) support staff to keep things safe and supported. The facilitators on-site are diverse – men just like you who have previously completed the training and have experience in guiding you on your journey.
Like any Rite of Passage, we don’t disclose the details of our processes in advance, so you’ll need to be willing to accept that before you commit. That said, emotional, mental, physical and spiritual safety is our biggest priority. We recommend talking to someone before registering. To get a feel for the intention of the weekend, visit a Men’s Circle, call an NWTA organiser or speak with someone who has already done a Training. You can also read our FAQs.
