My Elder Soul ~ a poem

But most importantly, we are letting our souls die. When I chose to be wounded, and walk through life withdrawn in my cave, or I choose to be over-armored, to the point of being weighed down, with such heavy baggage, nothing else matters, …..my...

The ManKind Project and Robert Bly

by Boysen Hodgson Right now, filmmaker Haydn Reiss is working on a documentary film about Bly’s life and career called “News of the Universe.” In the film, one of the things Reiss will do is look at some of the myths about Bly and the ‘men’s movement.’ He also has a great interview with John Densmore, the well known drummer from the 1960’s band The Doors, to talk about an oft misaligned ‘tool’ of men’s gatherings, the drum. Reiss has...
