Conscious Men's Circle

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will rule your life and you will call it Fate.”

— Carl Jung

The purpose of this group is to create space for men to develop more awareness and understanding of self, through analysis and group discussion of studied masculine archetypes. Material will incorporate book readings and guided mindfulness meditation in addition to personal journaling.​

 

Cultivating awareness and understanding of our unconscious attitudes, beliefs and habits motivating our personality can give us more agency over how we relate to ourselves, others and the world. Over time, this greater self-awareness and self-acceptance can pave way to greater self-actualization, or "the realization or fulfillment of one's potential."

Group Details

This 10-week closed group will run via Zoom and be guided by the book "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine" by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette. Participants should purchase the book prior to the start of the group (link below).

"It is enormously difficult for a human being to develop to full potential. The struggle with the infantile within us exerts a tremendous 'gravitational' pull against achieving that full adult potential. Nevertheless, we need to fight gravity by dint of hard labor and to build the pyramids of first boyhood and then manhood that constitute the core structures of our masculine Selves. The ancient Maya seldom destroyed earlier structures from their cities' pasts. Like them, we do not want to demolish the pyramids of boyhood, for they were and will always remain generators of power and gateways to energy resources from our primordial past. But we need to get to work laying courses of stone over those old terraces and stairs. We need to build, brick by brick, toward the goal of mature masculinity, until at last we can stand on the high platform at the top, surveying our realm as 'Lord of the Four Quarters.'"
