Synopsis

It is no secret that men are in trouble today. From war to ecological collapse most of the worlds critical problems stem from a distorted masculinity out of control. Yet our culture rewards the very dysfunctions responsible for those problems. To Matthew Fox our crucial task is to open our minds to a deeper understanding of the healthy masculine than we receive from our media culture and religions. Popular religion forces the punitive imagery of fundamentalism on us pushing most men away from their natural yearning for spirituality and toward intolerance and domination. Meanwhile many men particularly young men are looking for images of healthy masculinity to emulate and finding nothing. To awaken what Fox calls the sacred masculine he unearths ten metaphors or archetypes ranging from the Green Man an ancient pagan symbol of our fundamental relationship with nature to the Grandfatherly Heart to the Spiritual Warrior. He explores archetypes of sacred marriage showing how partnership becomes the ultimate expression of healthy masculinity. By stirring our natural yearning for healthy spirituality Fox argues these timeless archetypes can inspire men to pursue their higher calling to reinvent the world.
