what is the rainbow warrior program?
Many of us reach a point where we find ourselves standing at a crossroads. This happens when we are ready to change the direction of our lives in a profound and meaningful way because we know we cannot continue in the same old way anymore.

This stirring beckons us to free our magnificence, direct the course of our lives and to do something great that will benefit more than just ourselves.

This is the calling of the Rainbow Warrior.   

A Rainbow Warrior is ready to embark on a remarkable Sacred Journey in pursuit of personal growth and spiritual awakening.

In this Program you will travel alongside the age-old footsteps of the Twisted Hair Elders, discovering your natural self through your own self growth & excellence. As our teachers have taught us and theirs before them, each Rainbow Warrior is dedicated to living and walking a Path that Sings to their Heart.

You will delve into your subconscious mind and tap into the undiscovered wealth of power, magick, knowledge and wisdom that lays within. You will develop your individual autonomous freedom and find greater meaning and purpose to your life.

As a Rainbow Warrior you will learn to create positive relationships, play a more active and responsible role in your world. You will bring greater levels of happiness, health, hope and harmony into your experiences.

The goal of The Rainbow Warrior Program is to guide you from being at the effect of life, into being the determiner of your own life.
how do we achieve this?

This program is rooted in the Old Way of Apprenticeship, which means you enter into an agreement with yourself, spirit and your teacher, to face your own shadow, confront the enemy within and deal with your fears, beliefs, philosophies, co-dependencies, ignorance, disempowerment and dysfunctional patterns of behaviour.

It will challenge you to become the Student. Emptying your cup and letting go of what you think you know makes space to discover what is genuinely true. It is a dynamic journey that requires your willingness to release all the ways you shaped yourself so you could fit in, conform, and belong.

The Rainbow Warrior Program consists of Five Gateways, after which you become eligible for Rainbow Lodge as a Senior Apprentice to further your leadership training.

This annual Program begins around March and ends in the last week of February & includes five (2-night) training weekends.

With each training weekend we venture ever deeper into exploration of the ancient Medicine Wheel Teachings through the following learning arenas;

‘Our Children’s Planet’ supports us as we deepen our connection to Grandmother Earth.

We open our hearts to hear the 'The Song of the Universe’ singing to us of the unseen mysteries of our existence.

‘Our Identity’ takes us on a journey into our Self, shining the light in the dark so we can see ourselves for who we truly are.

‘The Human Luminosity’ teaches us about the complexities that house our potential to be healthy & harmonious humans, both in physical form & in our energy signature. It also introduces techniques from the Shamanic Healing Paradigm.

‘A Journey of Cycles’ – we consider this the Philosophers Stone weekend, it’s the key to unlock doors into knowledge & gateways into understanding our experience of everyday life.

We gather at the end of February every year for our annual week-long Ceremonial Gateway.  All Sacred Journeys Rainbow Warrior Students come together in support of themselves, one another & the collective. Each Apprentice steps into Ceremonial components that bring integration of their current year of training & initiate their transition into the next.
