Boys become men in much the same way across cultures, by integrating, through experience, each of five messages: Life is hard; You are not that important; Your life is not about you; You are not in control; 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, consumerism—and 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.

"looking for spiritual insights"
I like this author very much, this book is more creative than others, the idea itself is an original one
i have listened to many books of R.Rhor, I choose this one out of curiosity
when he says that a wisw man is one who walks with you as if travelling together
i didn ' t finish to listen to this book yet but i am pushed forward
I've not only learned about male initiation spirituality , but also about how to engage in a spiritual life. This is targeted not only for catholics or Christians, but all who want to pursue God in their lives.
