Why did we choose
He & She?

What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity?

And what are the feminine components of the psyche?


Also, what is the pathway to mature femininity?

And what of the masculine components of psyche?

Many scholars and writers have long considered ancient myths to symbolize the journey of becoming whole, complete, and individuated.

In the books He & She Robert A. Johnson examines the ancient story of Parsifal, as well as Psyche and Eros in depth.

This has produced an arresting and perceptive exploration of what it means to become.

"Dr. Jung told me that the unconscious would protect me, give me everything I needed for life and that my one duty was to do my inner work. All else would follow form this. He said that it was not in the least important whether I accomplished anything outwardly in this life since my one task was to contribute to the evolution of the collective unconscious."

- Robert A. Johnson

Those who deeply resonate with this quote and are looking to find a community of individuals who feel similarly, this book club is for you.

This particular exploration of the books He & She are to have conversations that stretch you and pull you closer to soul using the myths described in these books.

What People Are Saying:

"I loved the interaction and raw vulnerability of the group members. A lot of times I find people will lack the courage to step in the ring of vulnerability.

This group was led with openness and engagement right from the start.

People shared their stories and insights right from the heart and that allowed some very interesting perspectives to consider.

I was highly skeptical about joining a "book club" but thought, what the hell....I love to read and lone turns out that I loved, loved, loved the group sharing.

That was my favorite part for sure.

I learned that everyone has a different "Heroes Journey" and that just being present and actively listening to people can bring so much joy to them.

It doesn't necessarily have to be about the chapter lesson I found to have "ah-ha" moments. Such a good group."


Are the books included? 

Books are NOT included in the program. We encourage you to purchase them in advance of the November 14th start date.

You can purchase the books here (HE) and here (SHE).


What if I’ve read the book before? 

There is a good chance you may have read the book, but you haven’t read the book in this way.

Also, we will be breaking down concepts to ensure that this experience is wayyyyy better than reading it by yourself.

I read really slow. Will I be able to keep up?

We are covering each book over the span of the next 4 months.

He is 83 pages and She is 96 pages.

Because the book is approximately 352 pages, that’s approximately 11 pages a week, or 1.5 pages a day. 


I read really fast. Will I get bored? 

Within the book club, we’re doing more than just reading for the sake of completion. 

We will be reading, journaling, note-taking, thinking, processing, self-coaching, applying.

You will not be bored.


When are the monthly calls?

Calls are on the SECOND Sunday of each month from 5:00-6:00pm MST.

Here’s the exact schedule: 11/14 (introductory/info call), 12/12, 1/9, 2/13, 3/13.


What if I can’t make the monthly Zoom Calls?

All calls will be recorded and emailed within 24 hours.

We would prefer if you could make it live, but we understand life happens, in that case you can always submit a question or topic in advance and then listen to the recording for answers, interpretations and/or suggestions on guidance.


Can I join at any time? 

Unfortunately, no.

Registration will close on November 14th before we begin the first call.


Enrollment is OPEN now.
