This week I want to dive into some of the reasoning behind the concept of creativity and how I’ve applied it to my work and my art. As always, there is a bit of a deeper meaning in this that doesn’t just apply to art. We are all meant to be creative in our lives; in our day to day, our work, our play. So are you giving yourself enough time to truly sit back, take the space, and allow creativity to happen?
This week on The Deep Dive we’re talking with Allie McFee as her and I explore the question “Is Monogamy Designed For Insecure People?”. I have to say, this was a juicy one, and it even pushed both Allie and myself to the edges of our trigger zone around this topic. Enjoy the episode and our perspective, and hopefully it inspires you to look deeper into your insecurities around sex and relationships.
Though I learned a LOT from my former partners, the partnerships themselves, and the transitions out of them, I want to share with you some of the things I’ve learned from my time being single. At this place in my life I find myself feeling more empowered, more aligned, and honestly more excited about life, and it’s something I don’t think I would be experiencing on the same level if I hadn’t made an agreement with myself to spend some intentional time in my life outside of partnership, sovereign, and single.
I’ve been intrigued by this question, and I’ve also been interested in the perspective that my friend Chelsey Jo Huntsman mighthave on the topic. Chelsey is a coach, spiritual guide, pleasure priestess, and among other things an amazing human being who I had the opportunity to interview on this week’s episode. Do we really ever get over an ex? Does that feeling ever actually fade? Join Chelsey and I in this week’s Deep Dive question and I’m looking forward to you perspective as well.
We are all creative, and actively creating the reality around us whether we know it or now. On this week’s episode I share my thoughts on why I believe that creativity has been one of the most important driving forces in my life and how I continue to use creativity in my day to day, my businesses, my relationships, and every other aspect of my life.
I recently attended a experience in Mexico that had me in a somewhat intense, but enlightening, Deep Dive into the medicine space. Though this was not my first experience, and though all of the work I’ve done in this space is unique and heart opening, I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences from this recent and very powerful time in the jungle. Enjoy this weeks podcast and let’s open up a conversation about the power of medicine, nature, and our own spirits when we decide to look a little deeper.
Is it a loving choice to keep people out of your community?
In this episode we talk about what it really takes to not only build, but maintain, a community that is beneficial to ourselves and our plate, and with years of dedication to creating connection, I felt like Virginia Salas Kastilio would be the perfect person to ask.
This week on The Deep Dive, I want to give you an update from the last three years of my life. Though I know I’m not unique in this, I’ve personally been through a lot, and these experiences have been kindling on a fire of discovery in my life that has allowed me to grow into and find acceptance for the man that I am today.
This week, I’m answering a question that I’ve been asked over and over on social media, in my emails, and pretty much every where else. While I have admittedly been avoiding the topic for the most part due to the opinionated whirlwind that is the vaccine, I decided to face the question head on and share some of my thoughts and perspectives. I invite you to listen with an open heart, and remind you that this is just my opinion. I respect yours and invite your feedback and conversation about this. After all, how can we continue to grow together if we don’t allow ourselves to learn from each others perspectives?
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?
I’ve started something new on The Deep Dive, something I’m excited about. I want to ask my guests questions that are somewhat unanswerable and dive into a conversation that exposes not only the unique perspective of the individual, but also the expansive nature of the answer. This week, I was so excited to interview Kevin Walton; transformational coach, speaker, and all around inspirational thinker and motivator. I recently had the opportunity to hear him speak at Sacred Sons, a weekend of mens work led by some of the front running explorers of the subject, and was drawn in by his take on truth and and what it means for our evolution and growth. So I decided to ask him the question on this week’s episode; Does absolute truth even exist?
This week I dive deep into another discussion around a question that probably doesn’t have an answer, with a respected entrepreneur and new close friend of mine Gerard Adams. I found a lot in common with Gerard, not only from a place of being financially successful in our lives but also from a similar experience of our journey to find self value and true self love.
This week, I want to share some tips with you on how to move through times of change and transition faster and with more ease and grace. It maybe surprise you how simple this one is at first, but how difficult it can be to really apply to your life and implement in your experience. Try it out, join the conversation, and if you got something from this episode I’ll invite you to share this with someone who might need to hear it too.
This week I decided to take the podcast in a bit of a different direction. For my interview with international speaker, transformational coach, and author of the new book “The Magic of Surrender” Kute Blackson, I wanted to move away from the usual interview format and ask a question that doesn’t even really have an answer; Can you fully surrender while still holding on to your desires and the things you want to manifest in your life?
In this week’s podcast I want to share a little manifestation hack that I believe can help you develop a smoother process of calling in the reality you truly want to experience. It has to do with naming your fears, understanding the root of it, and moving through them so that you can clear space for all of the massive abundance that the universe is ready to provide to you.
This week I’m releasing another freestyle. Spoken word, poetry, straight from my heart and my own personal experience. I’ve been giving myself permission these days; permission to accept myself more, to forgive myself, and love myself. To experience the life around me with a new perspective. And, this poem feels that way…
On this weeks podcast I want to share with you an exercise consisting of three ways to not only understand the ways that you’ve broken trust with yourself, but rebuild it. Just like any relationship, trusting in YOU is very possibly the most important thing you can do if you want to live a healthy, happy, and empowered life. And as always, it starts with awareness.
Are you ready for a trust fall? Join me in this exercise this week and let’s up level together.
In this week’s podcast, I talk about why you SHOULD blame yourself for your breakup. Though it may sound a little off when you first hear it, I talk about how to face the responsibility you have in the end of a partnership and how it can help you actually acknowledge the growth that you’ve done by just realizing your part in it.
This week I was honored to connect with my friend Nadine Lee in a conversation around the beautiful and sometimes challenging dynamics of knowing ourselves properly in a relationship, and the work it takes to show up in our highest for partner and for ourself. Nadine is a teacher of the feminine tantric arts, feminine embodiment coach & nutritionist, and founder of Tantric Alchemy. We dive in to her work in the tantra space we also talk about the importance of further understanding our sexual energies, not just in the bedroom, but in our life in general.
In this weeks podcast I discuss WHY men not only will never be enough for women, but why that is a good and natural dynamic for relationships to continue to thrive. Love is not about comfort, it’s about growth and seeing the opportunities in yourself and your partner to continue expanding.
This week I’m sharing another poem. Rather than freestyle this time, I have decided to share a poem that was written and premeditated. One that I think sheds further light on the emotional experience of the relationship, love, and loss, that I have been both challenged and blessed by in the last year.
I believe the title exemplifies the complex nature and the simplicity of love and partnership. I call it “Us”.
Are you really aware of the effect your parents had on who you have become? It seems simple enough. Whether you’ve always had a good relationship with your parents, a challenging one, or like so many; maybe didn’t even get to have a relationship with one or both, most of us will spend a lot of time thinking about how that relationship (or lack thereof) has influenced our life. Negatively or positively, it’s pretty hard to avoid carrying a lot with you from what is often the most influential of relationships we have growing up.
“What is it about me that needs to know? Looking for certainty in a world that’s so uncertain. Lurking behind every corner there’s something that you can’t see, And yet theres this part of me that feels incomplete, Or maybe just scared, if I don’t know whats out there….”

Today’s conscious community is full of people from different backgrounds and differing beliefs. But that doesn’t mean one belief is better than another.

We are facing a global pandemic that hasn’t been seen in our lifetime. This isn’t an exaggeration, this is fact. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has put entire countries into quarantine, healthcare systems are completely overwhelmed, and all reports suggest that it will get worse before it gets better.

Self-awareness allows us to question our old beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves. We often have ideas of who we “should” be and this causes us to live inauthentically. With self-awareness, you can challenge these “should” statements and find freedom in who you actually are. In this episode ofThe Deep Dive with Adam Roa, I dive into an experience of when I felt insecure and awkward and how I managed to move through these feelings to discover the truth of who I really was and what I really believe.
