    Figs O'Sullivan - Breaking Free Of Repeat Conflict In Relationships

    Figs O'Sullivan - Breaking Free Of Repeat Conflict In Relationships

    Preaching the obvious here, but romantic relationships are complex, and WHY something becomes a conflict can be incredibly hard to map—unless you're Figs O'Sullivan. This was such an enjoyable interview. Figs brings a sense of playfulness and humor to the tough stuff, and helps open up new ways of looking at conflict in relationships, why it happens, why reoccurring arguments happen, how to move through those arguments differently. Have a listen to this alongside your partner!

    Figs O’Sullivan was bred and emboldened in Dublin, Ireland and immigrated to the Marin County and San Francisco area in 1994. He was drawn to psychotherapy and self-exploration to better open to, move through, and heal his own emotional pain and suffering, and the last of his family to do so. Figs’ father is an experiential therapist in Ireland, his mother a social worker/probation officer, and his sister is also a psychotherapist in the Bay Area.

    He received a BA and MA in Economics from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland before moving to the States and working as a stockbroker, employee stock options specialist, and executive. He quit the corporate world and attended Esalen in Big Sur, immersing himself in the study of existential psychotherapies, spirituality, body-oriented/somatic modalities, and the therapeutic expressive arts such as drama and dance as ways to uncage life, access inner wisdom, and build capacities for growth and transformation. Figs went on to receive an MA in Counseling Psychology from Meridian University in Petaluma.

    He is also extensively studied  Gestalt Awareness Practice, Emotionally Focused Therapy (a highly effective form of marriage counseling), Imago, Collaborative Couples Therapy, Experiential Psychotherapy for Couples, Gottman’s work, and more.

    Relationship Green Flags

    Relationship Green Flags

    I get asked this a lot: what are my relationship green flags? What would I consider the biggest go-aheads in a partner? And to be honest, these come after a loooong time of not knowing what to look for or what I really wanted!

    So consider this list some hard-earned, but simple and tactical things to look out for when pursuing a serious partnership.

    Tim Corcoran - The Nature Of Purpose, The Language Of Soul, And Vision Quests

    Tim Corcoran - The Nature Of Purpose, The Language Of Soul, And Vision Quests

    Discovering a sense of purpose in life can feel frustrating and ambiguous at times, and with the mountain of books and guides out there, it's also easy to dismiss the simple act of letting purpose find you, so to speak. Tim Corcoran specializes in helping people cut through the complexity and return to nature, so I sat down with him to dig into the nature and definition of purpose, the point of things like vision quests, and how nature speaks to us. 

    Tim Corcoran is the founder of Purpose Mountain, where he serves as a certified Nature-Based Purpose Guide to support people who hear the call from wild nature to discover their purpose, those with a burning desire to live their vision and a willingness to work with resistance and fears through the Ecology of Self and Voice Dialogue. Tim also serves as co-Director of Twin Eagles Wilderness School, an organization he co-founded with his wife, Jeannine Tidwell, in Sandpoint, Idaho in 2005 dedicated to facilitating deep nature connection mentoring, cultural restoration, and inner tracking. 

    Tim is a leader of men’s groups and holistic rites of passage for males, guiding and initiating men and boys into the new paradigm of the mature masculine. Since 1999, Tim has dedicated his life towards consciously furthering this vision of living in balance with the Earth, community, family, self, spirit, and soul. Healing the cultural rift between the mainstream and indigenous cultures, transformational consciousness work, the spiritual journey, ancestral work, deep nature connection, family and holistic health are all deep commitments in his life. Tim is a heart-centered father of two brilliant boys and husband to a magnificent wife and lives in pristine Sandpoint, Idaho.

    Ask Her This

    Ask Her This

    At the start of a relationship, a lot of men dive headfirst into meeting every need the other person has. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, but when you combine it with cultural messaging that seems to say men shouldn't express (or even have) their own needs in a relationship, it prevents both parties from getting to really know each other. So here's one way to break through that!

Head, heart and soul

Connor’s podcast is a great gift to all of those who are seeking to be men in the fullest and healthiest sense in a culture in which, often, masculinity primarily associated with toxicity, violence and patriarchy. Awesome guests and meaningful conversations.

Connor speaks truths

Having hit a crossroads in my personal life and new beginning with the end of my marriage, listening to Connor has given me hope, insight, tools and a path to seek a better version of myself. His insight and manner and perspective have lifted me, sobered me, opened my eyes and given me hope for what it means to be a quality human and a man at the same time. Thank you Connor.
