Diving Deep

"Men are not free when they are doing just what they like.
Men are only free when they are doing what the deepest self likes.
And there is getting down to the deepest self!
it takes some diving."
D.H Lawrence

Getting Unstuck

You know what words we hear most from men?

“I’m stuck.”

Men get stuck in the three Ps: porn, procrastination, and passion (lack of it). They get stuck in addiction, depression, co-dependency, dead-end jobs, and dead-end relationships. Stuck in bad habits like too much television, porn, internet, and carbs, and too little time in the gym. Stuck in fantasy, daydreaming, crushes, ruminations, and just flat out wasting their lives.

Here is the irony of stuckness. Most of us are stuck not because we’re so enamored with what we’re doing, but because we’re trying to avoid something else. And what is that something else?

Honestly, most of us don’t have a clue.

But it’s down there lurking, and we invest a lot of energy avoiding it.

We could give it lots of names:

  • Unbearable, Unsayable Emotions
  • Our Personal Hell
  • The Dark Night of the Soul
  • Childhood Trauma
  • The Ghosts Lurking in Our Psyche
  • Skeletons Hiding in the Closet

We might attribute our stuckness to laziness, procrastination, fear of success, self-limiting beliefs, genetics, family and social expectations, or general busyness.

Ultimately, however, it doesn’t matter what we call it. What matters most is that when we avoid what lurks below, we pay a big price:

  • We are often on the edge of dropping into the black hole of self-hatred and shame.
  • We live with a low-grade depression that we fear is waiting to swallow us whole.
  • A free-floating anxiety makes every major life event feel overwhelming and life-threatening.
  • We see every encounter as another opportunity to confirm and expose our greatest fears about ourselves: that we are defective and unlovable.
  • We feel like imposters, hiding our shameful feelings.
  • We live in fear of being found out.
  • We let our addictions not only waste our time and energy, but deprive us of passion and damage us and those we love.
  • We tolerate lives that don’t amount to much more than putting one foot in front of the other (and consuming one thing after another).

In dealing with these issues, most self-help books, therapists, and coaches – along with friends and family members, bartenders, and hairdressers – will point you in the completely wrong direction, which often sounds something like:

  • “Snap out of it.”
  • “Just give it time.”
  • “You’re great; she’s the jerk. It’s her loss.”
  • “Don’t dwell in negative feelings. Think positive.”
  • “Never feel fear (or anger, or sadness, or depression) again.”
  • “Just get over it.”
  • “Stay busy.”
  • “Try harder.”

Unfortunately, none of these approaches works – you know that; you’ve tried them – because you can’t get rid of what is hard-wired into your system. Your emotions are part of you, just like your arms and legs and heart and head, so getting rid of them is a fool’s mission.

Diving into Darkness

You’ve tried everything else, so why not do what really works: get down with your bad self.

Join Drs. Robert Glover and Michael Pariser in a unique weekend workshop, exploring, connecting with, and embracing the darkness within.

This workshop will give you tools, guidance, and support to explore the darker, hidden places you’ve spent your life avoiding.

“Dive into Darkness” will be highly interactive and personal. We will use the portals of shame, anger, sexuality, habitual emotional reactions, dreams, and death to guide you into the depths of your emotional operating system. We will help you integrate what you find there into an authentic, passionate, satisfying life.


  • If you want to finally face your biggest fears,
  • If you want to live a better life,
  • If you want to wake up every morning excited about what lies ahead,
  • If you want to live with passion in all that you do,
  • If you want to open up and fully give and receive love,
  • If you want to take the power away from addictive and compulsive behaviors,
  • If you want to live up to your full potential,
  • If you want to tap into your creative self,
  • If you want to unblock the flow of vibrant sexual energy,

peter johnson"Thank you for who you are! Your workshop changed my life. Like a comet whose orbit was jarred slightly, my path took whole new directions as a result of that day. Awesome new vistas are now mine as a result. I think about you and the training often.

I've done a lot of personal growth workshops and a lot of therapy over the years, and I rank you as "a force of nature." Your work is fabulous and much needed. 95% of the time, I'm now the man I want to be; in love, in work, in energy and spirit. My path now makes itself clear; all I have to do is pay attention. Thank you!"

Peter Johnson, CA

"I signed up for Dr. Glover’s Total Personal Integration (TPI) workshop unsure if it would be a waste of time. He portrays it as “life changing” but I wasn’t sure I would get anything out of it. I think of myself as a normal guy who has had a few problems with women, relationships and sex. Not that I’ve taken the workshop, I can tell you that it was everything Dr. Glover said it would be. It was life changing for me. I discovered things about myself, issues that have been hidden for forty years. Women haven’t been my problem. My deepest beliefs about myself are the problem. Now I can deal with those issues. That’s life changing. If you have any reservation please make the effort to attend any of Dr. Glover’s seminars or workshops. You won’t be disappointed."

mine 1"The workshop was in a word; Fantastic. Dr. Glover takes the time to connect with each member in such a way that you feel the workshop is customized specifically for you.  He has a command of many different life issues and he makes them easy to understand. During the course of the day, you can feel the positive energy that’s generated from spending time with other men who are working to improve their lives. I came away with the new skills and techniques I can use to move to higher consciousness. Thank you."

"The TPI Workshop is having a snowball effect on my life and the snowball is working in my favor for a change. Within one week of implementing what I learned in the workshop, I have seen meaningful changes in my life that will last a lifetime. The TPI Workshop is life-changing and it far exceeded my expectations!"

Jeff Moore, Portland, OR

brian 1"I have to say the TPI weekend was one of the most rewarding, fulfilling, life altering weekends I've had in decades. I've been to numerous personal growth seminars and this one definitely ranks up at the top of them. It was very relaxing, action packed, fun, and jammed with tons of information that I'll use for the rest of my life.   

In particular, I found the masculine and feminine chart especially life altering. I have the chart saved in my blackberry, I plastered on my wall at home in my office, and have it with me wherever I go. I even refer to it when I'm on dates!   This one topic alone has changed the way I look at my life, the way I see women, and my relationship with women.

Besides having a mind blowing weekend of information, I also met a great group of guys who I intend to stay in touch with for years to come. The amazing seminar is one thing, but no amount of materialism or money can replace the relationships and friendships formed during this weekend. Oh, I almost forgot to mention spending an awesome weekend in the sun in Puerto Vallarta was also a huge bonus.

I totally recommend this weekend to anyone who is interested in improving their lives, personal growth, forming great new friendships that can last a lifetime, and taking their life to the next level. I feel like a completely new person and plan to live my life in a way I never dreamed of thanks to the TPI weekend.  Thanks again!!!"

“Dr Glover has great insight into the masculine mind and habits. If you have a problem being assertive, as I had, or a myriad of other things keeping you from success, I would highly recommend, No More Mr Nice Guy. Even greater still, attending one of his workshops and seeing that what he teaches is for real and applicable to every man.”

Randy H.

JAFPhoto"I recently attended a TPI (Total Personal Integration) weekend workshop with Dr. Robert Glover. The workshop has been incredibly valuable to me and was certainly worth the time and money. 

I had read Dr. Glover's book several years prior, but having an intensive weekend to explore the "Nice Guy" concepts in depth, in person and in community with 7 other men really allowed me to "get it" on a deep personal level. Most importantly, my life has changed! In my daily life I am now more honest, more courageous, more confident and better able to sooth my anxiety without resorting to booze or numbing activities.

Overall, I am happier and the future looks brighter to me. Along with the workshop, Dr. Glover makes a series of podcasts available to attendees. I have found the podcasts to be very helpful in focusing and reviewing the concepts I explored at the workshop. I heartily recommend the TPI workshop to any man wanting to improve his life."

“After taking Dr. Glover's TPI Workshop I was able to have significant breakthroughs in my personal  and professional life. Get out of your comfort zone, do what makes you feel anxious, and go to one of his workshops!”
