Whether you identify as Gay, Bi, Trans, Questioning, Queer, or Curious, the GBTQ New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA) provides a path to discovering and integrating your authentic masculine power. We welcome you!
WHAT IS IT: The New Warrior Training Adventure weekend is a real time hero’s journey, and the challenge of a lifetime for many men. This is not a retreat, a conference, or a workshop. We invite men to join us for a safe, cutting edge sex, alcohol, and drug free life-changing experience, 48 hours to look at your life without distractions.
Though all NWTA weekends are open to all men, some choose our GBTQ-focused NWTAs. The staff on this special weekend is comprised mostly of GBTQ men.

WHAT DOES IT COST: Prices vary according to location. The cost is between $650 and $750 in the U.S. This includes all accommodations, meals and materials. Financial assistance and payment plans are often available.
WHO RUNS IT: The ManKind Project International. We are a 35 year-old nonprofit organization with a proven track-record of helping men grow, flourish, and build community. We want your life to be ALL that you want it to be. We want you to be healthy in mind, body and spirit, to feel valuable and powerful as a mature man in the world. We want a culture that is safe, supportive and vibrant for our partners, families, chosen families, kids and grand-kids. If you want that too, then take this to heart – this training will have a profound impact on you and all those you care about.

The primary goal of this site is to welcome Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer and Questioning men who have some interest in the Mankind Project and the GBTQ New Warrior Training Adventure weekends.
New Warriors and the Mankind Project organization are also very intent on being increasingly inclusive and culturally diverse. We have taken “welcoming” and “100% honest” to heart.
