    187: Ownership: The Foundation to Reconnection

    Disconnection can be rough, especially in relationships with years of history. For a lot of people it seems easier to sweep all the messiness under a rug. Eventually, however, the rug isn’t big enough to hide the things we would rather ignore. When it comes time to get honest with ourselves, and the ones we love, it can feel impossible to clean up years of denying the reality of our circumstances. But, what if there is a foundation to rebuild a relationship better than before?
    In part two of this two part episode, Jonny and Pietze share about their attachment styles and how their lack of understanding of each other built barriers throughout the years. They expose some of their deepest fears that led to a chasm of disconnection. Jonny talks about his new found capacity to be a rock in the relationship, and together they describe how the humility of taking ownership was the bedrock for restoring connection better than ever before.
    If you’ve had a long term relationship, or friendship, this conversation will ignite hope, care, love, and understanding for areas in you connection that you didn’t know you needed.

    184: Resolving Pain With a Father: A Live Healing Experience

    One of the most common messages a man can inadvertently take from their father is the belief that we’re only valuable when we perform well. Through even the best intentions this lopsided message can leave a child confused about love even into adulthood. Confronting our pain with a father can feel crippling and paralyzing. But what if the mere acknowledgement of a problem could catapult a willing person into the freedom they always hoped for?
    In this episode Justin and Abi are joined by Life Consulting Master Class student Dave. Dave opens up about the trials and tribulations he’s faced walking away from the family business and the explosion of emotions that have followed. He shares about the expectations he couldn’t live up to and the eye opening season that left him facing emotions he never knew he had. Dave bravely drops his guard and allows the Stumvolls to join him in a healing journey, reframing the way he sees himself and his father forever.
    If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to practically heal from wounds in your past, you won’t want to miss this LIVE healing experience.
