For this touchy subject, I chatted with coach, mentor, and speaker Brenden Durell. Brenden has worked with numerous men and women, and was also featured as a coach on the popular Netflix reality series, Too Hot To Handle. The subject of what it means to be a man in today's day and age is an important one, and a very confusing one as well. I believe that we get closer to a healthy answer to that question the more that we open our hearts to the conversation.
For this week’s episode I was honored to have this conversation with Cam Fraser, an amazingSex Coach as well as a Certified Sexologist, Counselor, and among other things; host of the Men, Sex, and Pleasure podcast. I myself have been a fan of Cam’s work, and followed along with his message for years, which is why I thought he would be perfect to discuss the topic of male sexuality, and the purpose of pleasure in the healing of masculinity.
On this week’s episode of The Deep Dive I chat with Sheleana Aiyana, founder of The Rising Woman which boasts over 2.4 million followers on Instagram alone, and has created a platform where she coaches and encourages women to become more empowered and aware of their strength and power in relationships and life. For any of you who may be looking to understand more about what it means to be divinely feminine and an empowered woman; this is a special episode that I don’t want you to miss.
This week I decided to invite Connor Beaton on to the show to discuss what it looks like when men (specifically) are out of balance with both their feminine and masculine sides. Connor is the founder of ManTalks which is an international organization focused on men’s health, wellness, success and fulfillment, and I thought he’d be perfect to help me dive into the question, “Are Conscious Men Too Soft?”
This question was actually brought to me as a result of my last podcast interview episode where myself and Aubert Bastiat explored the question “Are Men To Blame For All The World's Problems?”. I was reached out to by my friend Makenzie Marzluff, a heart centered entrepreneur, founder of Delighted By Desserts and (among other things) co-founder of my favorite cacao brand “Kakao”. Seriously, I take this stuff everywhere I go. Makenzie was inspired by our conversation around men and wanted to explore the other side of the coin based on her experience, and though the question itself can sound a little controversial, the conversation she and I had was inspiring and I believe her perspective is a valuable and important one.
This week on The Deep Dive I speak with my friend and brother from the Sacred Sons gathering I recently experienced; mentor, trainer, facilitator, husband, and father, Aubert Bastiat. Aubert has dedicated his life to mens work, an exploration of how men and masculine energy can truly show up in their place on this planet to do the good work that they, and we, were probably meant to do. So this week I ask him another Deep Diving, almost unanswerable question: Are men to blame for all the worlds problems?
