This is spiritual and psyche work, rooted in the interior landscape of masculinity. We work from adolescence, to early adulthood, through the mid-life transformation into elder-hood. I often use traditional spirituality, and/or the archetypes of warrior, king, lover & wise man as our touchstones for self-integration.
I tailor the work to where the man is. If for example, a man is still wounded from his early life of religious experience then we focus on the pan-spiritual and mytho-poetic work. This typically always includes time with the four archetypes of masculinity (king, warrior, magician, lover) and Richard Rohr’s 5 hard truths of male initiation, and the 5 common wonderfuls that are the antidote for each hard truth.
Other men want to really make a strong return back to a sacred tradition, or toward a new tradition, or a hybrid.
Both approaches are built around vulnerability and honesty (both his and mine) around the male journey, with me sharing quite a bit about my own falling downs and getting back ups. We inevitably find commonality around our experiences of adolescence, our relationships with our fathers, ego career struggles, etc... for instance.
We will read texts together, and also work the enneagram if he so wishes. Again, the work is flexible and malleable, we alter as we go to be true to what his soul and heart is telling him.
