Here Come The Archetypes
This is what we got cookin'....👨🏽🍳
Hang on tight because we are about to take you into the fascinating and highly relevant world of archetypes through one imaginary character and the wild imagination of three friends and anyone else out there that wants to join us!
Here's the Format:
1️⃣ One writer will start off by writing a short story exploring an archetype.
2️⃣ The next writer will use the last two paragraphs of that short story, and take the same character into new archetype.
🔁 This passing of the torch will go on until we cover the 5 main masculine archetypes over the coming weeks.
What to Expect:
We'll bring you 5 episodes (one every two Sundays), and for the Sundays in-between, we'll send you some resources (such as the ones below) to help you understand the theory behind the archetypes, and why they are important in this day and age.
🔥 Omar will be starting us off on April 17th covering the Magician, followed by Paul on May 1st with the King, and then Khaled on May 15th with the Lover.
🙋♂️ If you would like to join our chain of short stories, and take on the Warrior or Father raise your hands in the comments (reply to this email).
In the meantime….
📖 Here is the book (King Warrior Magician Lover) that this is based on.

❓ FAQ: Is this only for men?
Absolutely not! The idea of an archetypes applies strongly to both genders. We are just three dudes right now so to relate from our own experiences we are covering this from a masculine perspective. Here is an example of female archetype breakdown.
