With a personal and intimate writing style, Dr. Johnson shares his gift of masterfully weaving psychology, Eastern religious philosophies, Judeo-Christian principals and Native American rituals and concepts into an action plan of specific practices for a man to become more aware and present to all things in his life. This "journey to mindful manhood" can begin at any time in a man's life, and is essential for the challenges facing men today. These “mindful men” live in integrity, decency and with honor. They are able to be strong and also willing to be vulnerable and live life more from their hearts. Johnson calls this "conscious masculinity, " and in “The Sacred Path,” offers a practical approach to achieve these goals in all life stages of manhood.
Although written for all men, I believe “The Sacred Path” is a particularly valuable resource for today’s younger man. As traditional rolls in our society have been turned inside out, many are confused about what may be expected of them, with monumental changes in what it means to be a partner, father, and provider blurring the very essence of what it means to be a man. Fortunately, Dr. Johnson has mapped a way to conscious mind, body and spiritual integration that will help keep men from stumbling into the all too common detours, pot holes and crashes that befall so many of us.
facing your gender today, how to be a spiritual warrior & a True Man, read this book. Chock full of inspiring ideas that will help
any man get back on track. According
to Dr Stephen Johnson, chivalry is back, and needs to be."

Let’s face it, men are different in oh, so many ways. It’s such a relief and so empowering to actually see these differences explained in print and understand why we think and act and feel the way we do. Men are historically the hunters/gatherers/protectors of society. Our survival traits are built into our DNA, we’re really hardwired differently than women. We can’t help it . . . it’s just the way we’re made.
Great info includes the 4 crisis points in a man’s life, the father gap wound (big one for me), 7 most dangerous types of women (scary), the importance of a good circle of men (essential), the importance of mentors, 6 mindfulness practices, and finding and renewing your true love and much more.

Dr. Johnson, a psychotherapist, consultant and educator, is the founder and director of the Men’s Center of Los Angeles and creator of the Sacred Path Retreat and Call to Adventure Rites of Passage Retreat for boys and men. This guy really knows his stuff and explains this intimate information in simple, down-to-earth terms and real-life stories that even manly men can understand and process. An excellent book for men AND women AND anyone on the path. Check it out.
We live in a world where many men are confused about what it means to be a man. Stephen Johnson isn't. He fully grasps the role of men in the world and in the lives of their family and children and lays out a logical path of improvement for all to follow. In this warm and immensely readable book, he opens his lifetime of wisdom, like a tribal father, pointing out commonsense principles and time-tested roads to betterment that will give any man a sound foundation for life that will fulfill his masculine destiny and make him proud. A must-read for all men and male youth.
