      “A wake-up call to shake us free from old stereotypes of masculinity, this book is good news — and essential reading for men and those living in a world with men. Matthew Fox, at his most enlivening and insightful, describes, arouses, and liberates archetypal forms of male spirituality so desperately needed in these leaden times.   It used to go without saying that a real man with alpha male traits must be the breadwinner of the family..

But I am not here to support any of those dated ideals that seriously mess up gender roles and make a lot of men feel insufficient and effeminate for simply being who they .

      Since starting the Art of Manliness, I’ve read a boatload of books about masculinity, manliness, and simply being a man. There are books out there on every aspect of the male experience from practical skills like carving a turkey and dressing well to sociological studies on what it means to be a man in history and modern society to more poetic examinations of the male experience. Some Jewish teachers say that the religious realm is simply not the place for the woman. What is the way for women in spirituality? Tantra is an exception to this masculine-dominated rule. In Tantra there is a strong presence of female practitioners and teachers. In fact some even go so far as to say that without a woman, there can be no tantra.

    Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But in fact they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman. There is no single, widely-agreed definition of spirituality. Many people gravitate toward spirituality to seek religious-like understandings without the ideological constraints of institutional religion. But /r/Spirituality is open to everyone, religious and non-religious alike. .
