With To Be a Man, psychotherapist and spiritual teacher Robert Augustus Masters offers this new and deeply insightful guide to masculine power and fulfillment.

I've got it all—so why am I so dissatisfied with my life? Why am I never happy in my romantic relationships? How do I become more courageous and powerful without becoming that jerk everyone hates?

Masters has helped thousands of men address these issues. And for nearly all of them, he’s found that one solution is clear: we must face our early wounds and the shame that holds us back—and then “bring our head, heart, and guts into full-blooded alignment.”

To Be a Man clarifies what’s needed to enter a manhood as strongly empowered as it’s vulnerable, as emotionally literate as it’s unapologetically alive—a manhood at home with truly intimate relationship.

This is a true hero’s journey of healing and awakening, connecting the dots of past and present emotionally as well as intellectually, encountering all that we’ve been and are. Along the way, we cultivate an intimacy with everything that we are—high and low, dark and light, masculine and feminine, dying and undying—for the benefit of one and all. This is the primal odyssey pulsing in every man’s marrow, whether he embarks on it or not.

In this book, readers can explore:

  • How your past may be dominating your present
  • Shame in its healthy and unhealthy forms, and how to make wise use of it
  • How vulnerability can be a source of strength
  • Emotional literacy—an essential skill for relational well-being
  • Releasing sex from the obligation to make you feel better
  • How to disempower your inner critic
  • Bringing your shadow (whatever you’ve disowned in yourself) out of the dark
  • Embodying your natural heroism and persisting regardless of fear
  • What women need from men
  • Understanding and outgrowing pornography and other addictions
  • Entering the heartland of true masculine power.

If you’ve read your share of popular advice on relationships and being a man—but realize on a gut level that it’s going to take some serious inner work—here’s a great guide to doing it.

Among Masters’ other books are Emotional Intimacy and Spiritual Bypassing.
