How Breathwork Benefits You and Your Relationship - Replay
Did you know that you can use your breath to do so much more than just live? That you can use it to actually thrive?
In this episode, we’re bringing some awareness to a practice that, in our opinion, is not talked about enough. If you’ve never heard of the term breathwork, or you’re just not sure what it is, this is an episode you won’t want to miss as we dive into the modalities of the practice and how it can help you in your personal transformation, your healing process, and at the end of the day, even in your relationship.
We’re exploring the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of breathwork, how to connect with your higher power through your breath, and how you can use breathwork to detoxify your body (and who doesn’t need that?)
We also talk about what you can expect from an upcoming Masterclass on breathwork that you don’t want to miss because it WILL change your life!

The Power of a Man’s Purpose — With Michael & Laura LaRocque
What does it mean to be a man?
There are probably a thousand different answers to this question, but there is one thing that is certain no matter how you define what a man is: if he’s not living to his purpose, he will not find true happiness.
In this episode we’re diving into what it looks like when men are living purposefully, including what it can look like in their relationships, as fathers, and more importantly, how they feel about themselves.
We’re also getting a look into Mike’s brain to get his perspective on what it means to live with purpose, and he’ll discuss how he turned things around to find his own purpose in life.
The power of a man’s purpose is about so much more than “being a man” - it can shift the whole balance and dynamic in your relationships and your entire life for the better, which will ultimately work to make the world a better place!

A Birth Story - With Michael & Laura LaRocque
We had a baby!
This probably wasn’t a surprise for anyone because no one can stay pregnant forever, but it certainly felt like a possibility in the weeks leading up to the birth of Bear.
In this episode, we’re diving into the details of the birth, from the lead-up with the castor oil eviction notice to Bear being born ‘en caul,’ to what it was like having Lennox present for the labour and birth.
We also talk about our experience with our midwives and why we chose to have a home birth (and how it didn’t exactly go as planned).
If you love birth stories, this is an episode you definitely won’t want to miss!

Merging The Sexual and the Spiritual with Kenneth Ray Stubbs
What do you get when you combine sex, spirituality, erotic massage, and a 1970s porn theatre? You get one really interesting conversation.
Kenneth Ray Stubbs is a Sexual Shaman who has a really amazing life story, from working at a porn theatre during his hippie travelling days, to studying massage, joining the Faculty at the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, and publishing numerous books on sexuality and related subjects. Kenneth was there in the early days of the emerging field of sexuality and has a fascinating perspective on the topics of sex, sexuality, genders, and relationships that you won’t want to miss.
In this episode, we talk about so much, including what it means to approach sexuality in a spiritual way, where the idea for the concept of the sexual shaman came from, how couples can reconnect sexually, and why Kenneth believes that porn is just plain boring. We also discuss the importance of being present with your partner and how we have culturally constructed the ideas we have around sexuality and spirituality and masculine and feminine - this is a truly riveting conversation, so grab your favourite drink, get comfortable, and enjoy!
Do Women Need Men? - Replay
Women don’t need men. Men and women are not equal.
Have we triggered you yet?
If we have, that’s good, not because we want to start any internet fights or piss people off, but because it means that there’s something inside yourself that you may want to pay attention to.
In this episode, we’re talking about how modern feminism is messing up relationships with men. There, we said it. It’s causing confusion in men, it’s causing unnecessary conflict, and it’s causing men to feel like they have to walk on eggshells.
We’ll be sharing what we mean by “modern feminism,” how it is messing things up, and answering the question: do women really need men? The answer might surprise you.
