The Warrior Archetype is the set of testosterone-driven impulses that have a man develop his competence and courage. It’s also associated with aggression which is why it’s often attacked as “toxic masculinity”. This episode discusses the function of this archetype, how it relates to mental health/confidence, the hormonal basis, and how to embody it in a constructive way.

My website is redone and the Masculine Archetype Challenge is available again. If you want a guide to connect to your warrior nature, check it out at ruwando.com/archetype.
