The first in a series of 12 short talks with David Whitehead exploring the philosophy and practice of the Warrior archetype, the back-bone of The Full Circle Project.
Part 1. Warrior v Soldier Defining and differentiating these two roles and asking the urgent question as to who is currently the "protecting force" and who they are actually defending. Consideration given as to how those who feel deceived about their professional role can re-establish their original inspiration and regain their moral responsibility, and how all of us called to strengthen the "Warrior Within" can do so through right education and practice. "The Way of the Warrior has been misunderstood. It is not a means to kill and destroy others. To smash, injure, or destroy is the worst thing a human being can do. The real Way of a Warrior is to prevent such slaughter — it is the Art of Peace, the Power of Love. The word soldier derives from the Middle English word soudeour, from Anglo-French soudeer or soudeour, meaning mercenary, from soudee, meaning shilling's worth or wage, from sou or soud, shilling. The word is also related to the Medieval Latin soldarius, meaning soldier (literally, "one having pay"). These words ultimately derive from the Late Latin word solidus, referring to an Ancient Roman coin used in the Byzantine Empire.

Martha Chamberlain Thanks! This was inspiring and a pleasure to listen to. I've tapped into this for my work too. Each one of us plays our part in creating the world we live in and choosing a Soldier or a Warrior lifestyle is one of the main ways we do that. Here's to more Warriors!
