Adam's Return: The Five Promises of Male Initiation talks about the five ancient messages all boys need to integrate into their lives to become men. They are: life is hard, you are not that important, your life is not about you, you are not in control, and you are going to die. Our culture has moved away from this wisdom, toward money, sex, and power, with boys never maturing into men. In this audiobook spiritual master Richard Rohr reintroduces this male wisdom. It's helpful for all men and sepecially those mentoring young men. Audiobook; 7 CDs; approx. 8 hours.
Boys become men in much the same way across cultures, by integrating, through experience, each of these five messages:
1. Life is hard.
2. You are not that important.
3. Your life is not about you.
4. You are not in control.
5. You are going to die.
Our culture has done everything in its power, it seems, to move away from this ancient wisdom. Men are lured away to dominate through money, sex, power, consumerismand never really become men. In this audiobook, spiritual master Richard Rohr reintroduces us to male wisdom in a way that will engage anyone who is a man, who is mentoring a young man, or who wants to understand men better, in a language being used in retreats around the globe. 7 compact discs/8 hours (approx.)
