#36 | Video Games, Violence and Healing the Shadow Lover - Eivind Skjellum

My guest today is Eivind Skjellum, an expert in the field of archetypes and masculine psychology.

He is also the founder of Reclaim Our Inner Throne, a three month program aimed at guiding men through an initiatory framework of transformation.

In our conversation today, Eivind shares about his earlier challenges with chronic fatigue syndrome, and how that forged his creativity to craft the Inner Throne framework. We discuss our childhood experiences with video games and their impact on our mythological worldview, as well as the dangers of young men left in the underworld where isolation can turn to rage.

And finally, he speaks of the importance of male mentorship to model a life of purpose and service to the world, which is ultimately the hero’s quest young men crave.
