I was revisiting Robert Moore's ideas tonight and I found that he regarded Robert Bly's retreats as a way of getting men in touch with their Lover archetype. The King, Warrior and Magician, however, would be accessed in different ways.
I want to go more into this...maybe i should start a thread specifically for it.. At any rate I'd like to explore these archetypes individually and possibly get some feedback on how any of you regard these archetypes. I'll do this when I haven't driven for four and a half hours.
See, even though Moore's intent was to understand these as male psyche archetypes, they're also present in the female psyche. He mentions the Queen, the Warrior Woman, and how they're equally important. The workshop i listened to tonight was in 1989 and at one point mentions how he believes girls should begin martial arts early in life to develop the warrior aspect in women that is often repressed in a Patriarchal society. He mentioned how he sometimes gets flack for it and also has some very fair and insightful views on feminism that I'll try to find more about.
Granted Jungians tend to be a bit strange sometimes, this guy seems pretty down to earth.
Anyway that'll all i want to say before I start rambling....
