From the Wounded Father to the Sacred Pipe: An Account of the Restoration of the Sacred Masculine
(Though slanted toward the male perspective, this session is open to all.) AGENDA:
With the ongoing meltdown of patriarchal structures occurring around us, a post-patriarchal activism which separates and celebrates the masculine away from patriarchy is being called forth. In story-telling, music, and ritual, this is a generational journey that follows the threads of recovery through the 12 steps, dreams, spiritual emergency and lives of fathers and sons. We will journey together into a masculine capacity to feel the Earth, the Ancestors, the Spirit, and generously participate in the 13.7 billion year old expanding universe. Philosopher Richard Tarnas has named the emerging, embodied masculine capacity to feel deeply, the "lunar masculine". To bring forth the loving, masculine partner to the returning sacred feminine, is a key component to the evolution of culture at hand.
F. Christopher Reynolds, M.Ed, is a teacher, adjunct professor in creativity, religious studies and art, a musician and shaman. His publications include depth psychology, giftedness, holistic education, spirituality and shamanic experience. The focus of his work in teaching, art-making and ritual is to assist in the cultural transformation now occurring in the West. He helps individuals and communities connect to the Earth, the Spirit and the Cosmos through the recovery of an embodied sacred masculine and sacred feminine.
