    Ego

    Ego

    One of the greatest obstacles along the spiritual path is an overactive ego - that fear-based part of you that needs to control outcomes and win at all costs.

    But having an ego is necessary to the human experience, so how can we reconcile both the ego self and spiritual self?

    In this episode of #GayMenGoingDeeper, we’re explaining how understanding your ego can actually benefit your spiritual practice. We’re answering questions such as:

    1. How do you distinguish between your ego self and spiritual self?
    2. How do you regulate your ego?
    3. How can you develop a greater connection to the Spiritual Self?

    Join us for this thought-provoking episode as we go deeper into the concepts of spirit and ego.

    Navigating Non-Binary

    Navigating Non-Binary

    Change can be scary. And in today’s world of ever-evolving language around gender and identity, it can make it hard for someone to ask questions without feeling judged or misunderstood.



    In today’s episode, host Calan Breckon opens up the conversation around navigating non-binary with genderqueer author Jason June and what his journey was like and how it now informs his work as a writer.



    Together they explore questions like…



    What is Non-Binary and what does it mean to be non-binary?What’s the most important thing people need to know about Non-binary and genderqueer people?Why do you think we’re experiencing more of a conversation around gender and gender identities in recent years?and much more!



    After this episode, you'll have a better understanding of the term Non-Binary and how you can navigate this ever-evolving and growing landscape around gender and identity.

    About today’s Guest: Jason June (it's a two-name first name, like Mary-Kate without the hyphen or the Olsen twin) is a genderqueer writer mermaid who loves to create picture books that mix the flamboyantly whacky with the slightly dark, and young adult contemporary rom-coms full of love and lust and hijinks.



    When not writing, JJ zips about Austin, Texas. He loves dinosaurs, unicorns, Pomeranians, and anything magical that takes you to a different world or time. JJ is a tried and true Laura Dern stan, and he is actively looking for an Andalite friend.

Heartbreaks & breakups

I just got out of a 9 year relationship with my ex and was looking for a good podcast to just help with what I was feeling. This episode I heard 3 different stories all of which I could relate in some way. Thank you for sharing.

Love this podcast!!

I have learned so much from every single one of the episodes. From not taking rejection personal. To 1% of change a day equals 365% of change a year. The most mind blowing, that my ego is more abusive then anyone could be on the outside because I was allowing it in my own head. I could relate to all three of these guys and even tho I have never met them I feel like I know them. Strawberry moons are so beautiful!!!
