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.

Welcome to the TribeMarch 7, 2016

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!

Lars and the Real Girl

User review

Lars is a 27-year old misfit who lives alone in a garage and mostly keeps to himself. His mother died while giving birth to him, his father kept to himself, and now, relating with humans is fraught with danger. To overcome his challenges, Lars orders a plastic girlfriend from the Internet and pretends that she is real. This is a moving story about the goodness in human beings and the power of symbols, love and compassion as healing agents. And if you look closely, you'll find clues to the importance of being initiated into manhood, the sacred ritual our culture lost.
