King Warrior Magician Lover

November 1st, 2015

Recently, I’ve been thinking deeply about this… What are ways to look at ourselves and others in a way that enables us to understand how and why we behave the way we do… I really enjoyed the King Warrior Magician Model by Robert Moore: Here’s an amazon link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/King-Warrior-Magician-Lover-Rediscovering/dp/0062506064

FourArchetypes

 

Once you familiarize with the model and even take a test that allows you to see how you are expressing the 4 archetypes in your life… the question becomes: how can one consciously express and cultivate these energies in order to play to one’s strengths and to shore up weaknesses through self-improvement and partnerships?

Here are some ways… not an exhaustive list of course… but a great place to start. Source: http://www.integralpsychology.org/a-journey-for-men—whats-your-archetype.html
