A Telling of The Lindworm Myth
This workshop is a telling of a potent and powerful myth called ‘The Lindworm’ and subsequent guided discussion about the themes and images that arise for the men.
It is a journey into the non-ordinary world of the mythic imagination and introduction to the importance of this work particularly for men in these troubled times.
I am heavily influenced by the work of Dr. Martin Shaw (Courting The Wild Twin), Robert Bly (Iron John), Michael Meade (The Genius Myth), and James Hillman (The Soul’s Code).

Nathan Meola is a mindset coach, workshop and retreat facilitator, and storyteller.
He heads up the Sydney arm of Warrior Within, a men’s organisation that expands on the work of Robert Bly, Michael Meade, and James Hillman, using a mythopoetic understanding and the extensive use of archetypal and ancient wisdom to offer men an opportunity to turn inward and embody their highest expression. Through a partnership with the Minnesota Men’s Conference, we aim to introduce more men to this work in the coming years.
In 2019 Nathan organised a one-day men’s gathering in Sydney that brought together over 100 men to experience the medicine of brotherhood and hosts monthly men’s circles.
