For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories. -Plato
Men, today we are facing a crisis and we are creating an epidemic. We don't know how to be a man in our world. Constantly bombarded with images of what a man should be leaves us uncertain of the kind of man we want to be. We are told to be a real man we must be such things as dominant, powerful, emotionless, self-sufficient, strong, aggressive, sexually prolific. But as these images don't align with our true selves we feel conflicted, emotionally disconnected, and insecure. This is the crisis. And it is within us all.
These insecurities are triggered by the people in our lives, from intimate relations to total strangers, and in fear we lash out at them. Misunderstanding this we attempt to exert power without regard for the worth of life. In this way we create a society of abuse, harassment, and exploitation, very often directed at women. This derogatory and unwanted behavior is no longer being tolerated, and rightfully so. In America alone every 98 seconds a man sexually assaults a woman and every 9 seconds a man beats a woman. This is the epidemic. The clock is ticking. And we are all responsible.
Yet there is hope. We can change ourselves and thus begin the movement that will change our society. We can, and we will, fight for our greatest good. By shining our light into the darkness of our own misunderstanding and confronting what we find there we can acknowledge our emotions, overcome our fear, live as our highest selves, and support the people in our lives on their own heroic journey. In the only course of its kind we instill the virtues of knighthood into a modern application for living. Medieval chivalry for the modern age. We want to help you create a reverent attitude towards life and live as truly sacred warriors.
Through the Sacred Warrior Way of Virtue you will see the sacred in everyday.
