This post talks about why we use the term New Warrior.
I hope it brings some clarity for you, but the name we use isn't important. What is important is the space we create to allow men to change their worlds.
Are you ready for change in your world?
From the New Mexico MKP Web site:
Why the term "New Warrior"?
Men have been warriors for thousands of years and every man has his warrior side. But social forces pressure many to repress or distort this part of themselves. They unconsciously substitute a "shadow" for the healthy warrior energy so essential for sustaining individual, family and community balance.
The New Warrior is a man who has begun the confrontation with the destructive shadow and has reclaimed hard-won ownership of the highly focused, accountable energy that empowers and shapes the healthy masculine self.
Sustained by this energy, the New warrior is at once tough and loving, wild and gentle, fierce and tolerant. He lives passionately and compassionately, because he has learned to face his demons and to live his personal mission with integrity.
