THE NEW WARRIOR
For over 60,000 men – the Journey began here.
The NWTA is a modern male initiation and self-examination. It 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 rank this among the most powerful experiences of their lives. The NWTA is a globally recognized and respected modern initiation experience for men. To date, in over 2,500 trainings, over 60,000 men have mastered this intense 48 hour experience. Every year, we conduct over 125 NWTAs, clocking close to 1,000,000 man hours of volunteer service. Why? Because we need wide awake men with strong community to help build a better world for all of us.
