Amazed am I. And humbled...but also delighted that such profound, practical insights into the deep masculine could be expressed so beautifully, with so much love & wisdom...BY A WOMAN. Thank you SO much, Karen Brody, for loving men and masculinity enough to pursue this work. Good will toward men is rare these days...and so are gifted writers like you. My only regret: I wish I could've read this 30 years ago. My life would've been so much happier.
ONE QUESTION: we see "your woman" so often in the book...but for the sake of single men (like me) I must ask: will these practices HELP US to ATTRACT A WOMAN and build a thriving relationship, using these awesome archetypal energies? ("Well, duh," he says. "No doubt!")
I can see how conscious use of these archetypes would be a huge help during dating, especially on first dates. I already surmise: 1.) be fully present and truly SEE the woman 2.) offer sincere, specific, credible compliments 3.) have a good date plan, take charge and execute smoothly, but be thoughtful, considerate & courteous 4.) take her somewhere special (maybe amazing) that she might not go herself 5.) be impeccable with my word and build trust with every step 6.) OWN my sexuality and feel it, but don't push it; 7.) be confident on the inside, kind and peaceful on the outside 8.) employ my meditation skills to hold a deep inner peace, at appropriate times, and 9.) LISTEN to her with 100% focus, don't interrupt, but ask open-ended questions to draw her out further...and prove I'm truly interested. All of this gives me much-needed confidence. Since my wife died several years ago and now, at age 63, the idea of dating again is VERY intimidating.
SUMMARY: Gentlemen, this book will teach you something amazing. The very best way to love a woman--and ensure a happy life together--is to stay absolutely true to your deep, masculine nature. To live by this truth is the greatest gift you can give to the woman you love. Ladies, if you want your man to understand you better, this is the best, most practical book I've ever read on the subject (and I've read a LOT of books.)
To the author: my deepest thanks for including the term "warrior" as a positive, empowered dimension of the deep masculine. As a Vietnam vet who was shamed and vilified for my service for decades (often by the liberal, peace-loving feminists I was trying to meet & date) your keeping faith with this honorable term...means more to me than I can say. Your work helps to make the world a better place for all of us.
If you are married and are really struggling in your marriage, buy this book and read it yesterday! I strongly recommend both men and woman read this book. I do not work for Karen Brody, but my purpose/passion is to help men and woman understand the masculine and feminine, which I believe will restore the sacred blessing of marriage. I really feel that once we help men reclaim their masculinity, our world will be better for it. Our society in the USA is so gender confused by what has happened over the last few decades concerning woman and feminists that it has resulted in men who are pushovers and woman who end up being masculine because of it. Please do not confuse this review for a disparaging attack on homosexuality or women rights. I have gay friends and family who I love very much, and there is nothing more attractive than a strong confident woman. At the end of the day, its about masculine and feminine energy regardless of gender, and I really believe Karen's book is the road map back to what once was.
This book will truly help you understand your relationships with men, woman, yourself, and your children. I just signed up on her website, and really looking forward to meeting her in the future at one of her seminars.
This book came to me as I was already deep in a journey of healing my body, mind, and spirit. I had already read amazing books like Iron John (Robert Bly) and Men and the Water of Life (Michael Meade) about what masculinity means for men. It was refreshing to learn about masculinity from a woman's perspective, especially a woman who is unapologetically feminine and who actually supports men in embodying their masculinity, rather than being threatened by it. Some people might think Brody is a bit "traditional" in how she describes the gender roles in her book -- I think it was perfect, and really just a reflection of what 99.9% of people over 99.9% of history have fit into. I would say, as well, that her perspective is desperately needed, what with so many sources now encouraging androgyny and sameness, or even complete "genderlessness," in people.
Brody herself and her experiences make the book special and extremely helpful. I would recommend it to any man wanting to learn about himself, his masculinity, and his relationship to women. I couldn't help but read the whole book in 48 hours, and I intend to reread the whole thing in a couple of weeks after I've integrated some of what I've learned. One of the best purchases I've made this year.
