Over the next few months, we are going to be delving into the four main masculine archetypes. We’ll explore what they are and how you can access them on your journey to becoming an 'empowered man'.
These archetypes are offered as the classic expressions of male figures of sacred spirituality. In traditional cultures, all four archetypes were found, and all four are needed for balance within the healthy community. Increasingly, our present-day communities are dominated by men demonstrating the unhealthy shadow sides of these archetypes.
In recent decades, there has been a call to men to connect with the Sacred Masculine and grow in that aspect of ourselves. Our lives nowadays are different in many ways to those of our ancestors who lived on the land, followed the herds and took up their spear for their community, but in many ways their journey is still our journey, just in a different world. The journey for men now is to be able to access all of these parts of ourselves to help us live in good relationship with the Sacred Masculine.
Throughout the next few months, we will be exploring the myths legends and archetypes, and look at how we can connect with their virtues and bring them into our lives. There will also be ongoing exercises and practices to work on between each session, you will also be invited to bring in a piece of art, music, poetry, book etc that relates to the previous session to share and discuss with the group.
These monthy sessions are held at HOLISTIC WELLBEING, Shepley, Huddersfield. The sessions will start at 7:00pm, with the aim to finish by 9:30pm.
The cost of each session is £5, this includes all handouts, tea and coffee.
