Conscious Men's Circle:
“It’s a model that's made it easier for me to understand where my struggles are coming from and what is missing for me to be my whole self.”
— Tony G., past CMC workshop participant
The purpose of this workshop is to create space for men to develop more awareness and understanding of mature masculinity, through analysis and group discussion of Jungian masculine archetypes. Weekly meetings will incorporate book readings and guided mindfulness meditation. Personal journaling and meditation practice will also be encouraged.
Cultivating awareness and understanding of our attitudes, beliefs and habits influencing our personality can give us more agency over how we relate to ourselves, others and the world. Over time, this greater self-awareness and self-acceptance can pave way to greater self-actualization, or "the realization or fulfillment of one's potential."
This 8-week workshop will run via Zoom and be guided by the book, "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine" by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette. Participants should purchase the book prior to the start of the group (linked below).
The group will meet once a week on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 - 9pm (ET), beginning Tuesday, January 31st to Tuesday, March 21st, 2023. Group meetings will be successively structured, with each meeting following on the previous one. To ensure continuity of the workshop, participants should plan to attend all eight meetings.

"It is enormously difficult for a human being to develop to full potential. The struggle with the infantile within us exerts a tremendous 'gravitational' pull against achieving that full adult potential. Nevertheless, we need to fight gravity by dint of hard labor and to build the pyramids of first boyhood and then manhood that constitute the core structures of our masculine Selves. The ancient Maya seldom destroyed earlier structures from their cities' pasts. Like them, we do not want to demolish the pyramids of boyhood, for they were and will always remain generators of power and gateways to energy resources from our primordial past. But we need to get to work laying courses of stone over those old terraces and stairs. We need to build, brick by brick, toward the goal of mature masculinity, until at last we can stand on the high platform at the top, surveying our realm as 'Lord of the Four Quarters.'"
— Excerpt from "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine" by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette
