Robert Moore, whom we tragically lost on June 18th of this year, reviews the perspectives of classic psychologists on grandiosity—including Freud, Jung, Adler, Kohut and Goldberg—and their views on how to ‘befriend the dragon.’ “For the first time, the appropriate attitude of a healer to that thing in you that wants to be seen and celbrated is empathy. And the task ought to be empathy, and the task ought to be getting it a hearing, and getting it into the world.”

Founded by Robert Bly in 1984, the Minnesota Men’s Conference celebrates the telling of old stories, the gifts of poetry and music, and opening our hearts to grief, wildness, and joy. We all have a yearning for lives of richness and meaning; this five-day conference is a unique opportunity to enrich ourselves in a community of other men.
