The Rescue of the Father: Fall and Rise of the Masculine as a Spiritual Quest
WP Post Author
The fall of the father is a universal myth story that we all know deep within our hearts and lived experiences. Pondering the archetypal stories of Hamlet, Pinocchio, ancient Egyptian mythology or the Lion King we breathe deeply into the loss of a shattered idol and the potential for growth as we move into authentic autonomy. Our hero self strives to either redeem or rescue the father and what he represents.
In any tradition there is a desire to rescue what is redeemable from the imperfection and shadow of the origin story; separating the wheat from the chaff and rediscovering the infinite aspects that are true. As we move through our journey as a community, we look to the mythical archetypes of the masculine within and ground into our rebirth into our own inner knowledge as teachers.
