Hey guys, Welcome to the Unshakable Man Podcast: A show and community for men who want to be their best emotional, mental, physical and spiritual versions of themselves. Today’s show is in the category of healthy masculinity.
Since 2008, Jeff Perera has been working to build bridges of understanding across our oceans of difference, having spoken to tens of thousands of people across North America about our ideas of being a man today and empathy-building. Whether in the boardroom, on campus, or the locker room, Jeff works to help inspire new models of possibility for men and young men where we work, live, play, worship or study.
Jeff is the author of: Telling Male Friends ‘I Love You’ Is A Muscle Guys Need To Flex Every Day which went viral in February.
In today’s episode, we explore male to male intimacy, growing from boy to man in middle school, the importance of developing community by leading with vulnerability, the measure of a man today, and what we can do to be better men for ourselves and our communities.
You can read written pieces, listen to podcast conversations, and watch interviews with Jeff over at HigherUnlearning.com, which is an online space exploring how limiting ideas of manhood impact us all in everyday life. Jeff’s work is to help nurture brave spaces for real discussion, inspiring people to challenge our gendered ideas of success and failure and to be the lesson in action. The way forward starts with us, within us.
