    In this episode, I interview Mytrae Meliana, who is a trained holistic psychotherapist and sound healer. What does it look like to address the pain or the wound of growing up with an absent or distant father? We explore the concept of re-parenting - finding your own inner parent who will be with you no matter what. We also discuss how to tap into the inner parent and our innate ability to heal ourselves.

    Mytrae, who is A WOC immigrant from India, shares her own story of healing and empowerment in her memoir "Brown Skin Girl: An Indian-American Woman's Magical Journey from Broken to Beautiful".

    I Don't Even Know What My Father Looks Like

    In this episode, I talk to Mikey, a young father of two boys, who grew up with an absent father and has never met, nor seen a picture of his father.

    He shares about father figures that helped him along the way, coupled with the slow, steady experiences of pain and loss of growing up with an absent father.

    We also explore what the super powers he's created in becoming a father and his commitment to being present and connected. It's inspiring for any parent, especially if you grew up with an absent father.

    Divorced Father Leaves Family and Creates Another

    Divorced Father Leaves Family and Creates Another

    Today’s episode is a conversation with Courtney, a successful sales person and the mother of two young men who shares her story of starting with the idyllic family, a divorce at a young age and a father who slowly faded away.

    Vulnerably and courageously, she shares many painful moments, big and small, throughout her life and some deep wisdom that she has learned along the way. She shares how her experience with an absent father impacted her romantic relationships and the healing she has gained from raising two young men. Her superpowers shine through the entire conversation, from her being the leader and care taker at her father’s bedside as he passed away to the extraordinary success she has had in her career and the dedicated, self-aware mom she is today.

    Two Mom's, No Dad, Artificial Insemination

    Two Mom's, No Dad, Artificial Insemination

    In the second episode of Season 2 of Absent Father Podcast, I interview Nile. In his own words, he is “the product of a bi-racial, lesbian couple and was conceived through the process of artificial insemination.”

    His story is fascinating in that he shares all of the traits and super powers and yet, his father never left him, he just never existed. We talk about the challenges he faced trying to understand and come into his own identity, being bi-racial, having two moms and trying to figure out how to be a "man" without the guidance of a father.

    Nile is a deeply insightful and thoughtful human being and he vulnerably shares the challenges he faced growing up, the struggle of his parents not knowing how to deal with his big emotions and the amazing super powers he has created from that experience that has him doing deep, healing men’s work and life coaching.

Thank you!!!

At 43 I’m finally ready to deal with my absent father syndrome. You’re so brave and are helping many, I’m sure.

Puts Meaning Behind the Feeling

Great coaching.

Rodney intelligently builds structure around unspoken yet powerfully felt feelings one experiences naturally as a result from lacking male leadership.

So glad I found this podcast.
Thank you.

Insightful

After listening to just one of these podcasts, I was moved and inspired. The idea of superpowers emerging from the challenge or pain of an absent father continues to stay with me. This podcast is thoughtful, insightful, concise and I’m excited to listen to them all!
