Publisher's Summary

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.

Brilliant insight into male spirituality

I really enjoyed listening to Father Richard Rohr's thoughts on the importance of male initiation and spirituality. The ideas he shared resonated with me from my own experience. It would have been a great to have someone explain some of these insights to me 30 years ago when I was a young man. I recommend it as essential reading for men looking for meaning and purpose in their life and faith journey.
