    167 On Havingness: How to Increase Self-Concept

    167 On Havingness: How to Increase Self-Concept

    Havingness (a.k.a. self-concept) is how much you subconsciously believe your deserve when it comes to different areas of life— money, love, respect, attention, ease, etc.
    We tend to revert to our this "Having Level" when we deviate too far away from it.
    But you can increase your Having Level, and upgrade your sense of normal through certain practices.
    Also, I’m back on YouTube:

    Tomorrow, Thursday Feb 2 at 11am EST, I’m livestreaming an episode on Atonement with the Father (monomyth).
    Also:

    166 Integrating the King Archetype feat. Patrick H.

    166 Integrating the King Archetype feat. Patrick H.

    “Sometimes you need to be punched so hard in the face that you wake up”

    Since appearing in episode 140 Slave to King: Nice Guy Transformation, I have received more listener questions about him than any other guest.
    Patrick H. from Germany returns to the podcast to fill us in on his life since his return to dating post-celibacy, and now in a new kind of relationship.
    If you’re a man with a history of unfulfilling relationships, choosing the wrong women, or general Nice Guy BS, listen to this one.
    We cover his roadmap of transformation the last 18 months, changing of archetypes, how to use your body to recognize truth, narcissistic PD, and what it really means to be King.
    Want to embark on a similar journey?
    Check out the Masculine Archetype Challenge, the 21 day program to summon the dormant parts of your masculinity:
    It still comes with a 1:1 coaching call with me.

    165 Man Cave Summit: Fatherhood Philosophy

    165 Man Cave Summit: Fatherhood Philosophy

    Apparently last Friday was “Three King’s Day”— referring to the magi who visited baby J in the manger.
    It happened to coincide with a summit planned with my new office mates. The three of us are young fathers and entrepreneurs.
    We christened our new space, Studio 14, with a chat on the Father Wound, the greater demands on manhood in creating a Perimeter, and fatherhood philosophy.
    Apologies to anyone who was expecting a livestream last Friday— I had some technical difficulties with the streaming.
    This Friday (the 13th) we’ll livestream 166 On Havingness: How to Increase Your Self-Concept.
    I’ll post the zoom link in substack shortly before.

    164 - How to Be a Rock, with Women and Other Important Things

    164 - How to Be a Rock, with Women and Other Important Things

    The last few weeks I’ve had a few discussions with guys about “being a rock”.
    In theory, it’s a nice manly image… but what does it actually mean?
    In practice, being “a rock” can seem like being “passive” at times, but it’s not the same thing.
    This episode covers HOW to be a grounded “rock” (as opposed to a fiery hothead, watery fish, or airy space cadet).
    NOTE: I’m going start livestreaming some episodes again as I was pre-pandemic. If you’d like to hop on the next episode and ask questions live, just subscribe (free) on ruwando.substack.com. I’ll post the livestream schedule/links + polls where you can vote on the next episode topics.
    ANOTHER NOTE: All other episodes will have video again too. I recorded this in video but something was SNAFUed. But from now on there will be video for substack subscribers.
    If you’re listening to this podcast on Apple or Spotify, and you’re enjoying it, please leave a review :)

    163 - Servant to The Muse: On Involuntary Creativity

    163 - Servant to The Muse: On Involuntary Creativity

    The Muse: The part of the psyche responsible for involuntary creation.
    The Muse is like any woman. Her desires rarely make logical sense.
    Get in her good graces and she'll fill you with inspiration. Get on her bad side and she'll look for ways to torture you.
    In this episode I share the story of writing my story, using quotes from other poets to drive certain principles home.


    Also my book is out. In case you didn't see, read it free on ruwando.substack.com.
    Next week I'll be moving the Ruwando Podcast archives over there too. (Waiting for permission from the RSS feed gods.)

    162 - Anabolic Psyche: Building Strength of Soul

    162 - Anabolic Psyche: Building Strength of Soul

    I'm in some sh*t right now... of my own doing. I'm in a Netflix documentary coming out tomorrow on the cult I was in.
    A lot heavy things are coming my way, and it's been requiring extra inner strength. So I'm forced to practice what I preach...
    This episode is on the Anabolic Psyche— Building strength in your soul. I cover two kinds of traps that kill soul strength (spiritual and material) along with 3 principles for metaphorically "bulking up".
    In other news... I'm moving my podcast hosting to substack. If you already receive my emails— nothing will change. But I will also be serializing my book (memoir of the matriarchal sex cult) on there starting next week. Anyone currently subscribed before Monday, Nov 7 will get 30 days free.
