Mothers and Sons:
As the first person who introduces her son to the feminine principle of relatedness, the mother plays an important role in her son's masculine development. While the mother-son relationship can be a safe container in which a boy can learn to connect to his own emotional, relational side, it can also be fraught with enmeshment, regression, and a fear of separation and individuation. In this talk we will focus on some of the ways in which the mother complex affects the development of a son's identity, and the archetypal and collective forces which support or hinder the development of a secure and embodied masculine identity.
- Describe the mother complex in a man.
- Illustrate the mother's role in the masculine development of her son.
- Describe the relationship between the mother complex and the Anima in a man.
