This episode is the first session of the series The Warrior Within: A Study in Masculine Psychology, a classic seminar in his series on the four major archetypes of masculine psychology as he understood them: King, Warrior, Magician, Lover. From the seminar description:
The Warrior is the archetype of self-disciplined, aggressive action. If Warrior energy is not accessed properly, a man may find himself caught up in cruel or self-destructive behavior. The mature Warrior, however, will be energetic, decisive and persevering in reaching his goals. The course is divided into the following four topics:
• The Warrior in myth, folklore and religion
• The Warrior’s role in masculine creativity and leadership
• Psychopathology of the Warrior
• Creating the “Rainbow Warrior”: resources for healing the Warrior
It was recorded in 1989.
