The New Warrior Training Adventure
The journey to becoming a New Warrior begins with an extraordinary weekend initiation called the New Warrior Training Adventure. The initiation in modern terms is called a workshop or a training... and yet both those words don't fully capture the wonder and risks of the experience.

The New Warrior Training Adventure is the historically timeless process of initiation; a self-examination that is crucial to the development of a healthy, mature, spirited and bold male self. It is the "hero's journey" of history, classical literature and myth - the psychological completion of the process of moving away from the comforting embrace of mother's feminine energy and then courageously into the masculine realm. It is a fearful journey of the head, heart and soul where a man confronts his dependence on women, on institutions, his mistrust of other men and need to be special.

"The only devils in the world are those running around in our own hearts. That is where the battle must be fought." -- Mahatma Ghandi

Who Runs the Training?
The Mankind Project International, a national not-for-profit corporation, has assembled a highly-motivated and experienced staff to lead the training programs. Most staff members are volunteers. All have experienced the initiation process themselves. They have a compelling sense of male initiation and authentic self-examination. In the final analysis, however, you run your own training through the responses and decisions you make along your journey. The staff serve as your guides and mentors. You choose your own level of commitment. You decide how far you will explore the inner terrain of your life, to discover the treasures and obstacles buried within your self.

Who Comes to the Training?
During your training you will stand shoulder to shoulder with an immensely rich mix of masculinity, with occupations and ages as wide as masculinity itself. Whether they are corporate executives or high school students, all come to share a common understanding that their lives as men can be empowered with greater focus and direction and that this personal initiation into manhood is crucial to their full development as men.

"Some people sleep until morning. Others know they have to bring the morning." -- Shlomo Carlbach

Am I Ready?
Only you can decide if you are ready to participate in the New Warrior Training Adventure.

We do not recommend this training for every man. We urge you not to apply to this program without serious forethought and not to enroll simply at the urging of a spouse or friend.

And a great paradox is that often it is a friend or a spouse who sees our potential as far greater that we imagined ourselves!

To participate in this training, you must be in passable physical condition and willing to face the prospect of powerful change in your life. On a limited basis men in wheelchairs, men with various physical disabilities including deafness and blindness have attended and become tremendous examples of determined and powerful masculinity. You must be highly committed to your life and ready to participate fully in all training activities. We will encourage you to take a hard look at yourself, your deepest fears, your wounds from the past and the specific ways in which your life is not working for you. We choose to work only with men who are ready, and willing to do this initiatory work with us.

WARNING - This training is not designed to replace therapy, addiction programs or medically prescribed drugs for psychological conditions. If you have very recently stopped using legal or illegal mood or physically altering substances, please disclose the information so we can interview you to decide together if you are ready for this training!

What Happens After the Training?
Several days after you have completed your initiation into a new level of integrity and accountability as a man, you are welcomed back into the community of your families, friends and fellow Warriors at a graduation ceremony.

There you will join a small voluntary team called an Integration Group, which will help you integrate the training into your life.

There is a specific program given over 10 weeks (one night a week) that is organized locally. In some cases due to distance and men's work schedules, we will run a Weekend Intensive version of the 10 week process. After this more formal post-weekend (facilitator led) integration, men form continuing and self facilitated Integration Groups (men's groups). These have proven as valuable as the training itself, so we urge each graduate to join one.

Because of the vast geography of the West, some men who travel great distances to attend the training will attend a graduation and/or the integration process in another MKP center or community. Some men turn into pioneers in their own community, which is how this work has spread around the world in 20 years.

Some individual men of passion are the first in their area, they bring some friends together and start a new community!

Does this work make a real difference?
Like a stone dropping into a pond, the New Warrior training sends ripples through the lives of men, their families and their communities. The growth and healing that men experience doesn't stop with them. New Warrior men and Centers are involved in mentoring young men and boys, working with gangs and incarcerated men, building shelters for the homeless, creating programs for Vietnam-era veterans and other causes that cry out for healthy masculine presence.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.... As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." --Nelson Mandela quoting Marianne Williamson (author of "Return to Love") in his inaugural address

What Will I Get Out of This?
"Previous cultures throughout history always intended authentic masculine initiation. But their vision and their cultural context of the world was necessarily limited. Since the first earthrise photograph from outer space, we have entered a new mythological era. For the first time in human history, we have before us the possibility of authentic masculine initiation - an initiation into the global brotherhood." --Dr. Robert Moore Coauthor of King, Warrior, Magician, Lover

"New Warrior Training is an authentic initiation into the cauldron of mature masculinity. I recommend it highly to deeply committed men. The NW staff are loving, generous, and deep-intentioned men who will evoke the very best within you." --Forrest Craver Convener of the North American Confederation of Men's Councils

"The truth is, I was afraid of this training. Even though I've written about men and worked with men for many years, the fact is -- as I discovered on the Weekend -- I didn't really trust men. I'm glad I overcame my fear. This was the most powerful training I've ever done, and the changes it started in me have been both deep and positive." --Mark Gerzon Author of A Choice of Heroes

"In 1983, I wrote The Secrets that Men Keep. After experiencing the New Warrior Training I'm rewriting that book. It's the most important men's work occurring in the U.S., and perhaps in the world, today." --Dr. Ken Druck Psychologist, Consultant, Author
