In this enlightening companion volume to the bestselling Goddesses in Everywoman, Jean Shinoda Bolen introduces men’s inner patterns in the guise of eight archetypal gods. From the authoritarian, power-seeking gods (Zeus, Poseidon) to the gods of creativity (Apollo, Hephaestus), from the sensual Dionysus to Hermes, the communicator and archetype of the man on the move. Dr. Bolen shows men how to identify their ruling gods how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes in order to enrich and strengthen their lives. She stresses the importance of understanding which gods you are attracted to and which are incompatible with your expectations, uncovers the origins of the often-difficult father-son relationship, and explores society’s deep conflict between nurturing behavior and the need to foster masculinity.
