How do Men Transform?
An Evening with Theologian & Episcopal Priest Matthew Fox
7:00 – 8:30pm EST, Thursday, December 2, 2021
In the words of Matthew Fox: One way men transform is by finding “the nobility inside.” I learned this rich phrase from a Native American prison chaplain who approached me after a talk I gave shortly after my book on The Hidden Spirituality of Men: Ten Metaphors to Awaken the Sacred Masculine was published. He told me that men in prison don’t want to look inside but prefer projecting onto others. And that after 12 years of looking to find a book that would get men to look inside, mine was the first book that men would read wherein they found “the nobility inside.” We will consider some of these archetypes such as Father Sky, Green Man, Blue Man, Spiritual Warrior and Hunter Gatherer that lead men to look inside and find the nobility there. Thus, to transform.
Another way to transform is to resist Patriarchy and enter into another way of living in the world, one that is less empire-driven and reptilian brain-driven and more inclusive of the Divine Feminine, wisdom, and our capacity for compassion. We will also address this way of transformation.
