Captain Fantastic

In-depth review

Saving Private Ryan

User review

Saving private Ryan is a movie about II World War where an american group is ordered to find and get one soldier back home from the terrain of France, since this one soldier's all four brothers had been killed in combat. It is a interesting journey to look on the relationships between the men, and how the archetypal energies show up in this movie, switching side by side. Ultimately this movie is about courage. It is about making your dreams real.

Our Idiot Brother

User review

“Our Idiot Brother” is a simple, light story that follows the life of the main character Ned as he enters back into the lives of his three sisters, shakes them up completely, and strolls back out grinning almost all the while. It is a feel good story with a lovely ending and a pretty straight forward set of lessons. For me there it is also a great and deep example of one of the stages of the Authentic Man Program (AMP) holarchy – appreciation.

Men: The era of the lone wolf is over. It's time to connect!

I'm guessing you're tired of bullshit and superficial conversation. I am too. So I created the Tribe for you.

Why would you want to join The Tribe? I don't know what is true for you, but what is true for me is that my life has seen dramatic improvements as the depth and intensity in my relating with close male friends (Brothers) has increased.

And now I crave that sort of depth in all areas of my life. Once I tasted the soul nutrients of Brotherhood, superficial connections became uninteresting.

If you too want depth and no-bullshit connections with men, join our Facebook group (which replaces our community platform as of March 2016). Welcome!

Kingdom of Heaven

User review

Towards the end of the 12th century peasant blacksmith Balian is struck by tragedy when his wife gives birth to a stillborn child and then proceeds to take her own life. After losing his foothold as a man and killing a priest, Balian is given an unexpected chance of redemption when his long-lost father offers him to go to Jerusalem, where the Crusaders are fighting the muslims. Through a myriad of challenges and blessings, Balian is finally faced with an enormous task; one that he can only have a shot at pulling off by reconnecting fully to his masculine core and to the initiation given from his father.
