Warriors for the Human Spirit

The first three cohorts of Warriors—81 people from 17 countries—completed their first year of training by June 2017. Two cohorts trained in Zion National Park, Utah. The third cohort trained at Schumacher College, Devon, England. This year, the training of Warriors will continue in multiple forms. Those already trained will have the opportunity to deepen their skills and serve as facilitators and guides to those now entering the training.

Warriors for the Human Spirit are leaders and activists brave enough to resist using fear and aggression to accomplish their work. Instead they train with discipline and confidence to develop the skillful means of compassion and insight. They aspire to use their influence and power to offer sane and life-affirming responses in this time of constant threats to the human spirit.  And they train as a community that continues well past the year program as a vital support for their continuing courageous work.

Warriors for the Human Spirit is based on the understanding that good leaders and engaged activists now require a very different kind and quality of training if they are to persevere in their work as effective leaders for their organizations, communities and causes.
