    King Warrior Magician Lover - The Archetypes of Mature Masculine

    in Spirituality

    The Outer Limits of Inner Truth presents an in-depth interview with Dr. Robert Moore  and focuses on his book "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine." The show features three questioners including previous OLIT Guests Chris Duane & Ryan Brooks. In "King Warrior", Dr, Moore and his co-author Douglas Gillette explore today's crisis in masculine identity and describe its two major causes - the disappearance of masculine rites of passage and patriarchy itself. They define the four mature male archetypes - the King (the energy of just and creative ordering), the Warrior (the energy of self-disciplined, aggressive action), the Magician (the energy of initiation and transformation), and the Lover (the energy that connects men to others and the world) - as well as the four immature patterns (Divine Child, Oedipal Child, Precocious Child, and Hero). Moore and Gillette believe the developmental history of every man is, in large part, the story of his failure or success at discovering within himself the archetypes of mature masculinity.

    Dr. Robert Moore </a>is Distinguished Service Professor of Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Spirituality in the Graduate Center of the Chicago Theological Seminary where he is the Founding Director of the new Institute for Advanced Studies in Spirituality and Wellness. An internationally recognized psychoanalyst and consultant in private practice in Chicago, he has served as a Training Analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago and is Director of Research for the Institute for Integrative Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy and the Chicago Center for Integrative Psychotherapy.

    Man, Oh Man, the Stories Men Tell

    in Writing

    Men too have stories. And they write them. Two writing brothas, one seasoned, the other emerging, share their passion for the pen, fears, and hopes and dreams. 

    Dolphus Cue, a self-taught writer, set out to teach himself how to write the same year Richard Nixon resigned the Presidency. He started at zero and labored for years. Then his fear and a lack of confidence led him to give up on his dream of ever becoming an author. Then in 2000, as Dolphus Cue demolished an old rusty shed in his boyhood home in the rubble, he discovered a water-stained cardboard box with his name on it. He couldn't recall how that box got there, but the moment he lifted the lid he recognized the remnants of a dream deferred. The box contained the bulk of Cue’s early efforts at writings. As he leafed through the pages he made a decision: he would try it again; he would publish everything in that cardboard box, or die trying. Well, I've had the pleasure of editing God, Blackie and Me, a story from that cardboard box, and it left me in awe.

    Darren Mitchell, who graduated from Morgan State University w/a B.S. in Finance and purchased his FIRST home in east Baltimore last December, thought by the time he turned thirty he would have had it all figured out.  “And man, was that far from the truth,” he said.  It seemed as if for every good decision he made three bad ones followed.  He was not living a meaningful or purposeful life.  Something had to change or he’d continue on a downward spiral of living someone else’s dream. 

    Darren's Blog, www.Intrinsic-living.com, is about living a life that is true to oneself.

  • The Surface: Meet the Film's Writer/Director Michael J. Saul

    in Movies

    Nicholas Snow welcomes Michael J. Saul, writer/director of The Surface, "The struggle of a young man to slowly create his own sense of family."

    As Saul writes at IMDB.com, "Evan Jones, a child orphan who, for years, was shifted from one foster home to another. Now a disaffected college student, he lives with his wealthy boyfriend, Chris. Their social and financial disparities have made their relationship increasingly volatile despite their mutual love for one another. While sifting through old relics at an elderly man's yard sale, Evan finds an 8mm movie camera. The man offers to teach Evan how to use it if he comes back the following week. Upon returning, Evan meets the man's 43-year-old son, Peter. They strike up a conversation and Peter gives him reels of old 8mm movies that are collecting dust in the garage. The home movies, featuring a young Peter and his boyhood friend touch a nerve with Evan. Their youthful flirtations and tenderness are uncomplicated and pure. Evan begins to live vicariously through the home movies and his friendship with Peter soon turns romantic. Evan's relationship with his boyfriend, Chris splinters as he pushes for greater understanding of himself."
