March 22 – 24, 2013 in New Hope, PA
We are only able to recognize the powerful brilliance of men when we are also willing to look at and take full responsibility for the pain we are capable of creating … and suffering from. This is the paradox of modern masculinity and it is a lesson we are dedicated to learning and teaching. The New Warrior Training Adventure is a life affirming training, honoring the best of what men have to offer the planet.
We believe that initiation is crucial to the development of a healthy and mature male self, no matter how old a man is. It is the “hero’s journey” of classical literature and myth that has nearly disappeared in modern culture. We ask men to stop living vicariously through movies, television, addictions and distractions and to step up into their own adventure – in real time and surrounded by other men.
