"It is a wise father that knows his own child"
- William Shakespeare

Beyond 50 Wishes You a Happy Father's Day!
In celebration of Father's Day, listen to an interview with Jim Pathfinder Ewing.    He'll talk about going back to time-honored traditions to balance and revitalize male and female relations. Find out why the current courses on men's empowerment are failing and offers a new way of looking at male roles that predates the modern era.

Ewing teaches men how to be men in a new (yet time-tested way) by reevaluating how they were brought up and determining which behaviors are suitable for adopting, and which are suitable for rejecting. If men try to adopt outdated "lover" roles, they find themselves alone, even pitied. Women are warriors, and magicians, and welders, firefighters and CEOs. An "Iron John" who wishes to retreat into what he is taught is his strength in masculinity - the wild man of ancient times - will find himself alienated and out of step with reality.  Conversely, if men try to adopt feminized versions of men's roles, they will find themselves equally marginalized.  Women don't need men to be women.  Nor do they need men who patronize them.
