Growing Towards Wholeness:

Exploring the Four Male Archetypes

April 27-29, 2018

Our Lady of the Pines Retreat Center in Freemont, OH

Join together with other men also on a spiritual journey for an interfaith retreat revolving around the four male archetypes: King, Warrior, Magician, and Lover. The concept of archetypes (male and female) has been around for millennia, and most cultures have woven this concept into their traditions, rituals, literature, art and mythology.

The word “archetype” derives from the Latin which roughly means “first-molded” and can be thought of as a pattern of behavior that is copied or as a constantly recurring symbol or motif. In more recent years, the concept of archetypes has been applied to the field of psychology by the psychiatrist Carl Jung and others.

During this experiential retreat we will have the opportunity to reflect on how we as men can grow as we explore the four archetypes of King, Warrior, Magician, and Lover. People tend to over-rely upon or emphasize one of the areas while leaving the others un(der)developed. We will examine the healthy and unhealthy (shadow) manifestations of each of the archetypes and what we can do to support ourselves and each other in our efforts toward wholeness.
