his article, "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover - archetypes of the mature masculine." The article is Eivind's take on what is described in the book by Douglas Gillette and Robert Moore titled, King, Warrior, Magician, Lover – Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine.
In his article, Eivind does a good job of introducing you to each of the archetypes and divides them into, "immature archetypes – boy psychology – and mature archetypes – man psychology." Eivind suggests, according to this view of masculinity, "healing and integration happens when we recognize that one archetype dominates too strongly in our psyche, and must be balanced by another, or when we recognize that the archetypes we animate are sourced in the active or passive shadow poles, as opposed to the integrated and mature aspect."
If you've never been exposed to the idea of masculine archetypes, Eivind's article is a great short course on the topic.
