The Art of Masculinity

Feb 17, 2022

On this episode, we talked about:

How are you healing as a man
There's good and bad stress
Having emotional awareness
We have to tap into our emotions 
Opening up to emotional experiences
True leadership is sharing vulnerably
Leading by authenticity
Sharing what's really true for you
Numbing yourself from emotions
You can choose what thoughts you have, not emotions
Experiencing highs and lows 
Having tools to get you present
Getting into a meditated state 
Accessing your anger and seeing what it has to say
Everyone can lead from any position


"Learning to identify your emotions first: when you're joyful, when you're angry when you're sad, joyful, shameful and fearful"


"Everyone expresses emotions differently but most of us feel it the same way, and if you can connect emotions with the body it's amazing"


"We all have emotional vulnerabilities, and to pretend don't have them is the weakness in our life"
