7:00 pm CDT - 9:00 pm CDT
Presenters: Paul Kachoris
In this lecture, four archetypes will be discussed: The Lover, The Shadow, The Divine Child and The Senex. The focus will be how the energy of each archetype informs and organizes weekend retreats for men, offered by the group, VictoriesForMen. These retreats bring the archetypes out of the dyadic consultation room and into an enlivened group processes container. The goal is to bridge the mind-body dichotomy, unifying it into a psychotherapeutic “somatic-psychological integrative” emotional experience. The end result is a transformative individual “victory” for each man: moving toward a healthier and more mature masculinity. Dr. Kachoris will share his wisdom and experience which comes from facilitating these meaningful weekends.
