Pre-Retreat Packet for Webinar Event Exploring Male Archetypes

While in a lifetime – or a given day – many archetypal energies are in play, four basic male archetypes are in each of us as men.

Before joining take time well in advance of Friday, March 25th, 7 pm PST, to reflect and journal on these two questions — using the descriptions of Primary Archetypes below.

  • Which of these four male archetypes are you most conscious of?
  • Which of these four archetypes challenges you (understanding and applying)?

Journal about the archetypes that are up for you right now. (Keep this journal for our event.)

Do the intake offline prior to Friday the 25th.

Primary Archetypes

King: Centered or the creator of order (structure); the provider of fertility and blessing (husbandry or stewardship).

  • It rewards and encourages creativity in us and others.
  • The King cares for the whole realm and as the steward of nature as well as of the human society.
  • The ability to go beyond oneself and benefit all (win-win)

The king (steward) in me decides what to do and when – for the day, for the week, for the good of all. My plans might not work:

  • Do I cry over it?
  • Do I bully my way through?
  • Do I adjust to circumstances?

Warrior: The assertive attitude to enforce the “rules” of the King.

  • Engages life
  • Concerned with training, interfaces with the Magician
  • Compassion and justice, interfaces with the lover
  • The capacity to act

The warrior protects the realm in service to the king

When things become unsafe:

  • Am I bound up in rules over people?
  • Do I let fear rule me?
  • Do I make space for the safety of everyone?

Magician: Master of the skills to enforce assertiveness. Kung Fu means putting in the time and energy to become a master.

  • Knower of structure, function, and/or the process.
  • All knowledge that takes special training to acquire is the province of the Magician energy.
  • The archetype of awareness and insight, the observing ego.
  • The archetype of thoughtfulness and reflection. The capacity to think.

The magician in me senses possibilities in the structures of things.

When I miss the knowledge of structures

  • Do I manipulate others to gain power?
  • Do I lie and fantasize?
  • Do I keep looking for structure and opening up possibilities?

Lover: Balance of I’m OK and you’re OK.

  • Empathy and compassion.
  • Sensually aware and sensitive to the physical world and it’s splendor.
  • Aware that all things are related and connected.
  • Collective unconscious (holographic Universe).
  • A want to touch and be touched (physically and emotionally)

The lover in me watches and listens – to everyone and everything – with my heart.

When things are chaotic:

  • Do I lose track of myself in the needs of others?
  • Do I presume everyone is just like me?
  • Do I cultivate depth in experience of changing circumstances?

You might also ask: how does working with architypes benefit me?

Be ready with your journal at our online event. Your reflections are crucial not only to yourself but to increase the synergy in the group as a whole.

Start time online: Friday, March 25th, 7 pm Pacific.
