    19 | Nadia Munla - Embodiment and Sensuality

    Are you attuned to your body and its needs, or are you living day to day consumed with your thoughts and unaware of what your body is trying to tell you? Many of us have adopted a way of living that is entirely focused on thought, productivity, and achievement, and in doing so we have completely disconnected ourselves from our bodies. We need to nurture our bodies and attune to its needs, but how do we do that? In this episode we explore what embodiment means and how we can make our lives more playful and safe just by attuning to our bodies. Our interview with Nadia Munla teaches us: 1) What embodiment means and why we have become so disembodied, 2) Different ways that we can attune to our bodies that are giving us so much meaningful information, and 3) How we can make sex feel safer for ourselves and our partners through this process.

She teaches them to stop managing their bodies & start loving them instead…so they can feel confident, sexy & powerful in business (and the bedroom).

    17 | Jennifer Brown – Diversity and Inclusion

    Do you know how being aware (or unaware) of diversity in our population is affecting your life? Most of the time we go through life without truly being aware of the difficulties that people in diverse groups have in their personal and professional lives, OR we are a member of a diverse group and feel like we are marginalized, unaccounted for, or misunderstood. It is ALL OF OUR responsibilities to make this world more inclusive for all people, especially if we are in positions of privilege or power. In this episode we explore what the challenges are for people in diverse populations as well as what structural changes need to occur to allow everyone to feel welcome and cherished. Our interview with Jennifer Brown teaches us: 1) What it means to be in a diverse group of the population (and what it can feel like!), 2) How leaders must shift their thoughts and actions in order to create a more inclusive environment for diverse members of a workforce, and 3) What inner shifts we all can make in order to bring more empathy and understanding to the world.

    16 | Tim Stein – Trauma and Relationships

    Do you know how trauma is affecting your life? Trauma is often misunderstood as exclusively being a life-threatening event that keeps someone in fear of danger for the rest of their lives. While this IS a type of trauma, there are many covert types of trauma that often go unrecognized and untreated in people’s lives. Relational trauma from our childhood can drastically affect how we attach to people as adults, and it can lead to addictions without us realizing why. In this episode we explore the different types of trauma and discuss how we can begin treating them if they are present in our lives. Our interview with Tim Stein teaches us: 1) What trauma is, 2) How we can recognize its effect on our lives, and 3) What steps we can take to begin healing that trauma and learning to have deeper intimacy in our lives.


    Tim Stein specializes in sobriety and recovery from sex addiction, betrayed partner healing, and trauma resolution. He facilitates retreats and workshops for addicts, their betrayed partners, and trauma survivors. Tim is a consistent presenter at national conferences.

    14 | Danny Parker-Lopes & Brett Hamilton - Stories About My Father

    Are there things that you need to say to a loved one but have never "found the right moment"? In this special Father's Day episode, we hear two amazing stories from men who found themselves growing up with absent fathers... One was absent literally, and the other was absent mentally and emotionally. These men share their deep, meaningful, and true-life stories about how their relationships with their fathers affected them and what they chose to do about it. Their stories are real, thought provoking, emotionally moving, and inspiring. They make us think about our own relationships and what we need to say or do in those relationships before it's too late. 


    A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE TWO WRITERS WHO SHARED THEIR STORIES WITH US:


    Danny Parker-Lopes is an actor/writer who’s been working on this piece, Pops, his whole life. Literally.  He hopes to complete the one-person show and, eventually, the movie before he dies.


    Brett Hamilton is a writer, storyteller, and yogi.  If you connected with his story, he would love to hear from you.  You can reach him at bretthami@gmail.com

Men Need This!!!

This in a wonderful podcast that addresses masculinity. In a time when men struggle to understand their role as a male, this podcast takes a down-to-earth, positive approach to a much needed topic!
