As per the feminine, the masculine aspect of the psyche is also comprised of various facets.
Jung’s psychology identifies four faces of the masculine that are thought to evolve from the primal to the romantic, the worldly and ultimately spiritual expressions of masculinity.
In Greco-Roman myth, however, there are many gods including Ares, the god of War; the fleet-footed Mercury, the god of travellers, merchants and thieves; Apollo, who ruled over healing and creativity; the restrictive Chronos and liberating Zeus; the wise Chiron who served as a mentor to many young heroes; the dark god Hades, who ruled over the Underworld; Pan, the mischievous god of the forest and Dionysus, the god of wine and ecstasy.
In this session, we will explore how these ancient gods are expressed as modern-day masculine archetypes in each of us, regardless of gender. Participants will be encouraged to identify which aspects of the masculine they have developed, those which may dominate their psyche, and those which remain undeveloped and in the shadows.
