What Jon Got From It

This is a blog post from Jon Patch. The training he speaks of has passed, but, I enjoy his piece on how the New Warrior Training Adventure is for him.

I'm out.

Training coming to Vancouver Island
Filed under: Recommendations/Reviews — jonpatch @ 1:19 pm

The New Warrior Training Adventure is coming again to Vancouver Island on March 31-April 2, 2006 weekend. I found this intense training for men to be transformative, and the follow-on trainings and groups excellent. Created by three men in the mid-80’s, something like 33,000 men have now gone through it. There’s more info at www.mkp.org/vancouver and a registration link at www.mkp.org/canwest.

What I got out of it:

  • a mission/sense of purpose, and how to take action in the world
  • the fundamental power of accountability (both modeling it and holding others accountable
  • a better understanding of integrity and how to live in integrity
  • how to balance compassion, action, mystery, leadership, self and beliefs

The training is recommended for men who are ready to let go of preconceptions and take a hard look at themselves, and push themselves to their limits. The number of staff exceeds the number of participants, so safety is paramount. The training is run by the ManKind Project, a not-for-profit organization. For men who are interested but can’t make it to Vancouver Island, this training is held 125 times per year around the world. See www.mkp.org for local trainings.
