ManKind Project – GBTQ Gateway Weekend – Los Angeles
October 14-16, 2016
New Warrior Training Adventure
The ManKind Project – Los Angeles
Whether you identify as Gay, Bi, Trans, Questioning, Queer, or Curious, or “none of the “above” the New Warrior Training Adventure is a gateway into discovering and integrating authentic power. All NWTA weekends are open. We want to welcome you.
Some choose our GBTQ focused “gateways”. The concept of a gateway training adventure was to make an extra effort to invite those who were not members of a majority demographic. Also, the staff is selected with those who identify as a member of the demographic group on which that gateway is focused.
The New Warrior Training Adventure is a singular type of life affirming event, honoring the best in what one has to offer the planet. We are only able to recognize the powerful brilliance of all men because we are willing to look at, and take full responsibility for, the pain we are also capable of creating and suffering. 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 modern initiation and self-examination. We believe that this is crucial to the development of a healthy and mature self, no matter one’s age. It is the “hero’s journey” of classical literature and myth that has nearly disappeared in modern culture. We ask gay men to stop living vicariously through movies, internet applications, television, addictions, bars and distractions and step up into their own adventure – in real time and surrounded by others like them.
At the NWTA
- You’ll experience a level of energy, a quality of masculinity, a deep sense of safety, joy and laughter, anger and fear, release of shame, physical challenge, and a connection to life’s mystery that is inexplicable, no matter how hard we try.
- You’ll have the opportunity to look with fearless honesty at the life you’ve created, and make profound choices about what you want to keep, what you want to expand, and what you want to let go of.
- You’ll discover your unique connection to your identity, explore a new way of understanding masculinity and the feminine, and step fully into the person you envision yourself to be.
