In this retreat experience, Richard Rohr explores the role of men in society and religion. Father Rohr focuses on the yearning to rediscover passion in masculine identity and in the purpose of life. He uses archetypes (symbolic images) to transmit his powerful message about male spirituality and integration. He challenges listeners to encounter their archetype: king, warrior, magician or lover, recognize its dark side and empower their journey through drumming, dialogue and discovery. Approximately 9 hours; 7 CDs.
