Men and the Quest

Men and the Quest:An Evolutionary Journey
for the 21st Century


A Weekend EnlightenNext/Mythodrama
Adventure for Men

This unique collaboration between Olivier Mythodrama and EnlightenNext London will utilise the ancient myth of Parzival as a gateway to explore the timeless qualities of masculinity within the context of an evolutionary view of spirituality

Parzival is the naive young man who painfully learns that an honourable life requires a quest for meaning that transcends individual triumph and ultimately serves a greater whole. In the 21st century men are now brought up within a value system of gender equality and gender neutrality. In consequence the accepted roles of men have changed unalterably whilst the historical underpinnings of masculinity are being fundamentally challenged. This workshop aims to explore how a perspective of evolutionary spirituality can radically reframe the archetypical male developmental journey once more into a heroic quest for meaning and the pursuit of life’s most elevated goals.

Mythodrama is an exciting new form of experiential learning, which in this workshop will draw on the creative forms of story and theatre to enable participants to explore the fundamental principles inherent in manhood. EnlightenNext is generating a transformative movement within consciousness and culture, empowering individuals to realize their ultimate nature and inherent unity with the 14-billion year epic of cosmic evolution.

These methods will allow participants to recontextualize the male impulses for heroism, valour and virtue, and reawaken those fundamental qualities in men that naturally aspire towards wholeness and an evolved expression of the masculine principle.
