--------------------------------

No longer faced with mere territorial struggles, today the consequences of patriarchal power and planetary worldviews brutally competing against one another have become global. Our own demise as a species is now a very real possibility. Never before has humankind been in such danger of being swept into a global totalitarianism, potentially more oppressive than any system known before. And yet, never before in human history have we been this close to a global psychosocial and spiritual awakening.

According to Gary Stamper, it is time for the patriarchy to be disassembled and for its sons to grow up, and if we want to change the world, we must start by changing ourselves. We have hit the boundaries of population and resources but not of possibilities. The Path of the Integral Warrior—and how it assists men in furthering their awakening—is part of a larger grand synthesis taking place all over the planet. There is nowhere to go but forward, in a never-ending evolution of consciousness.

Awakening the New Masculine: The Path of the Integral Warrior applies integral practices to real world issues. Using cutting edge Integral technologies, ancient shamanic wisdom, initiation and ritual, and Jungian archetypes, Gary Stamper helps men step into a new way of being that allows them not to just find, but to be the freedom that the masculine seeks. With that freedom comes a deepening and a relaxation in relationships, work, life, play, love, and spirit. When you step into the truth of who your are—speaking from your heart—your partner, your friends, your children, and your work relationships will relax and trust you.

On Thursday, September 20th, Gary Stamper will present a new way of looking at and embodying what it means to hold the masculine in the 21st century, new ways to live, work, play, and love in an emerging consciousness. Come to talk, come to listen, but mostly, come to act.
