In this episode I am joined by my dear brother Jeddy Azuma, whom with I have a very deep conversation around MASCULINITY.
We discuss what true masculinity is; how can men access their power and purpose and learn to direct their emotions instead of suppressing them, the life-changing power of Vision Quest and Rights Of Passage ceremonies, how to become a man that can hold space for a powerhouse woman in partnership…and even the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness in bed and how awareness and communication can help deepen sexual intimacy.
Jeddy is the creator of The Rising Man Movement, one of the founding fathers of The Conscious Man Brotherhood (CMB) and Man Cave. He leads men on Rites of Passage journeys to initiate an entire generation of men and to mould the leaders of future generations, and his work inspires me deeply.
This episode is one of my very favourites and one that will offer a lot of value both to men and women!
“There’s a lot of guys out there (myself included) who have been or still are very uncomfortable with confrontation. But if you are not willing to stand up for something in your life, it takes away your ability to be of service in the highest capacity.”
