MY 50TH INTERVIEW

Douglas Gillette is the co-author of “King, Warrior, Magician, Lover”, an immortal classic of the men’s movement.

He’s also a husband, father, college professor, Jungian analyst, and poet.

I hear his book mentioned weekly because it helps men see their inherent goodness and nobility, in an era dedicated to shaming men for often exaggerated crimes of wickedness.

The mode of thinking it inspired also showed me that I could take core aspects of me and round them out in the hopes of someday becoming a King.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • How men's work began with the warrior energy and lost contact with it
  • Sensitive subjects the men's movement avoids
  • The importance of men separating from the mother, and how to do it without losing touch with the feminine
  • The power and strength in true humility
  • Christianity's answer to the origin of human suffering
  • And finally, some reflections as Douglas looks back on his life, as an elder.

To make a contribution like Douglas has to three generations of men requires authentic care, and genuine love for the masculine experience coupled with profound philosophical and spiritual insight.

I hope you’ll see, as I do, that is who Doug is.
