What does “Liminal Order” mean?

A few people have asked me recently what the name Liminal Order means.

“Liminal” is a new word and concept for a lot of folks, so let’s break it down here.


Latin root: limin, or threshold

Found in

Preliminary – something before a major event
Subliminal – below the threshold of consciousness
lintel – threshold

Meaning: of, relating to, or being an intermediate state, phase, or condition : in between or transitional

In anthropology, liminality is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete.

Technology and new ideologies are driving change on a scale never before seen and society is about to be torn down and rebuilt on a new substrate.

We are in between and betwixt what was and what will be.

We are in between the old ways and whatever the new ways will become.

We are liminal.

You can feel it all around us. The changes are both obvious and subtle, but they’re all powerful.

All of our old guardrails which taught us how to succeed have been removed and we’re left to figure things out on our own. And the results aren’t pretty.

Everything around us is changing.

Everything will be affected.

Our culture is liminal, individuals are liminal, and even masculinity is in a liminal state.

What will emerge is unknown.

How long it will take is unknown.

What will happen along the way is unknown.

In fact, we don’t know much about what the future will hold.

But what we do know, is what to do while society and culture evolve.

How do we deal with liminality?

We must understand the world, create new models of perception, translate that into individual behavior, and implement best practices as men.

Some of the new practices are old ones, and a look back to traditional values will inform the process.

But not all the answers are behind us.

The future is novel and will need novel strategies and tactics.

The future will be so different it seems we are embarking on a new Axial Age.

Humanity will never be the same. Society, culture, even our physical bodies will undergo unpredictable changes with uncertain outcomes.

The context for a millennium to come will be determined in this generation.

It’s just that important.

But before we get there, there will be chaos. There will be great struggles for supremacy and domination. There will be wars which elude our comprehension because they will never have been fought before.

And the war is already on in many ways.

The war on men is part of the greater struggle for intellectual dominance.

It is waged in all spaces, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, technological, on a network level and on an individual level.

To win this war we must lead with a positive masculinity.

We must focus on ourselves, our family, then our community and eventually the Nation.

We must build from the ground up, plant deep roots, and grow in strength outside of the spotlight of social media.

We need time, space, and a community to endure and even thrive in these conditions.

Society, culture, and even our government may be in a liminal state.

But it is important to remember individuals can be in a liminal state as well.

I was.

As the world shifted around me, I found myself in the wilderness drifting along, enduring the isolation and overwhelmed by information.

In fact, most members of the Liminal Order found themselves in a liminal state too. Which is why they joined our community.

They sought to bring sanity to insanity, reality to unreality, and order to chaos.

Thus, the name, Liminal Order.

But to bring chaos to order you must first cross a threshold.

That threshold for you is joining the Liminal Order.

Entering the Order is a ritual. You abandon the old ways to embrace a guided journey of change and discovery. And you do this with your new tribe.

Together we will discover new modes of operation, create new perceptions, and emerge a regenerated and reinforced 2.0 version of ourselves.

A task of this magnitude isn’t easy.

It requires community, accountability, and leadership – all things you will find in the Liminal Order.

We begin by changing ourselves.

We change ourselves so we can change our culture.

And that starts with the fundamentals:

    Amen and amen. The war agai st men has produced an emasculated generation who do not understand their hardwired, natural urge to protect, produce, and serve.

    I’ve followed you on social media for a bit, but only recently became acquainted with your podcast. Listening recently, I felt like part of my brain was pulled open.

    Your segment with Mr. Rufo about building networks and communities is exactly what has been missing. This page has it right when it talks about being in a state of transition or limbo. I’m eagerly listening to more and joined the mailing list to get more info. Good stuff!
