Waking Up To Whiteness

Racial inequity, violence, and injustice are deeply embedded in American society. This training is a starting point for white men who want to raise their voices for systemic change — and who recognize that uncomfortable conversations are a critical part of creating a more just society. This container has been consciously created to not place the burden of our learning on our sisters and brothers of color. At the same time, many of the course materials were created by people of color to ensure their voices are represented.

This course looks forward with the belief that an incredible amount of richness, truth, and beauty emerges when we commit to facing challenging issues together. Click here to learn more.

LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE – GO BIG!

NWTA
THE NEW WARRIOR
TRAINING ADVENTURE

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.
