    Matt Sinkovitz: Prisons, Porn and Perspective - Act 1

    Matt Sinkovitz: Prisons, Porn and Perspective - Act 1

    An ordained Buddhist Minister, Matt Sinkovitz shares tales of his Pentecostal upbringing – including a trip to China with his mother to do missionary work as a 13-year-old.  He speaks about finding the courage to ask the “bigger” questions that led to a college philosophy class that, in turn, eventually led to discovering his own spiritual path.
    Matt describes how love serves to connect he and his family, even though he’s taken a divergent road from his religious roots.  He touches on depression, bumping up against suicidal ideation, and awakening to the idea that he was, in fact, not his mind.
    That awakening opened the door to studying the mind, meditation, moving back closer to home, pouring himself into Buddhist studies and enrolling in a seminary program.
    It was toward the end of his seminary studies that the direction of his work began to take clear shape.
    You can learn more about Matt and his good work on his Facebook page, where you can access his well-vetted Porn to Purpose FB men’s community.  You can also email Matt directly at makingpeacewithporn@gmail.com.
    Matt Sinkovitz has been a practitioner and teacher of personal & spiritual development for over a decade. An avid student of mindfulness and meditation, Matt graduated from the Blue Mountain School of Mindfulness Arts seminary program in May 2018, with a Masters in Buddhist Ministry, and was ordained Osho (priest) in May 2019.
    Matt began his studies in Buddhism and New Thought as a young adult, seeking resolution to his own personal life dilemmas.  Overcoming his 20+ year compulsive relationship with porn, Matt has been inspired to share his journey and support other men in their path to liberation. He now facilities one-on-on and group coaching support for men working through porn addiction.  Through his online Facebook support community, ‘Making Peace with Porn’, Matt currently runs the ‘90-Day Liberation Boot Camp’, as well as the ‘7-Day Porn Abstinence Challenge’.
    Matt is passionate about his mission to guide men in ending their toxic relationship with porn so they can reclaim their power and create lives worth living.
    Matt recently completed his chaplain residency at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, in Hershey PA, where he trained in interfaith ministry.  He is a student of yoga, and studies traditional Japanese martial arts, at Itten Dojo, in Mechanicsburg, PA.

    Ken Mossman – On the Other Side of the Mic with Rick Tamlyn

    Ken Mossman – On the Other Side of the Mic with Rick Tamlyn

    In this first new episode of 2022, my friend, colleague, and brother-in-good-work Rick Tamlyn turns the table and interviews me!

    Who knew...?
    In this departure from our regularly scheduled programming, Rick asks me to discuss the whys and wherefores of my work with men.  We dig into the general state of manhood and look at our innate multi-dimensionality.
    Rick and I put several of our inner dimensions/aspects under the microscope and point out the ways in which we, as men - aided in no small part by lifetimes of distorted messages - vote vital pieces of ourselves off our own islands.
    Pointing toward the home-built guitars visible behind me on our Zoom call, Rick brings us around to the topics of creativity and, of course, fun.
    You can learn more about me and my IAM program on the Cirrus Leadership website, and visit me on LinkedIn.  (If you're interested in IAM, there is a special offer in this episode's end comments!)

    You can find out more about Rick and his fantastic work at ricktamlyn.com and, of course, on his LinkedIn profile.

    Hiding, Seeking, Finding, Flourishing: Travis Stock – Act 2

    In Act 2 Travis Stock discusses the natural tendency to further isolate and “go at it alone” when emotional pain is present – and the importance of asking for help. 
    His story continues with a move following his mentor to a ranch California where he was “thrown to the wolves” in some of the best possible and most challenging ways.
     Travis shares his journey to the work he loves best as a Coach, Lead Instructor and Master Facilitator for the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching™, and dishes on the profound ways working with horses serves as “beautiful mirrors of how we show up” in our lives.

    Travis Stock, MSW is a Master Certified Life Coach, Equus Master Facilitator, and teacher.  Travis helps others find what creates balance in their lives by first seeking acceptance of what is.  He utilizes the Equus experience to connect others with the often forgotten wisdom of the body, allowing for more fully explored and developed choices in their lives.

    Travis has a passion for the balance of masculine and feminine energies in each of us, regardless of gender, and believes in the importance of nurturing a relationship with both types of energy to create a sense of wholeness.  (Click here to read more – http://www.travisstock.com) Travis brings with him interest and experience in the areas of emotions, the LGBT community, transformation of trauma and shame, interpersonal relationships, family systems, men and masculinity, and living open-heartedly.

    Hiding, Seeking, Finding, Flourishing: Travis Stock – Act 1

    Hiding, Seeking, Finding, Flourishing: Travis Stock – Act 1

    The child of a dental assistant and construction worker who were high school sweethearts, Travis Stock grew up in Tucson, Arizona.  His family were members of a United Methodist reconciling congregation in which same-sex ceremonies, well before Marriage Equality became the law of the land, were not unusual occurrences.
    Even with that high level of community acceptance of LGBTQ people, Travis reflects on his own experiences of feeling different and separate as a gay boy, pouring himself into perfectionistic pursuits of music and studies as places to hide.
    Travis’ story is one of both hiding and seeking, and toward the end of Act 1, beginning to come to terms with his true self through the well-timed help of one of his professors and the courageous healing work he and his family pursued.

    The Outdoors was Our Internet: Bryan Kramer – Act 2

    The Outdoors was Our Internet: Bryan Kramer – Act 2

    Bryan Kramer kicks off Act 2 by dishing on his discoveries at the intersection of pizzas, cottonmouth, and “unexpected surprise and delight.”
    He shares stories of meeting his wife, founding his first company, and 18 years of international travel.
    While home for a short stint, Bryan’s son, an outspoken 11-year-old, pulled him aside and let him know that on his current trajectory, it was unlikely Bryan would live long enough to meet his own grandchildren.
    He was driving face-first into a combination of clinical obesity, diabetes and burn-out…
    Bryan rounds the bend to home with tales of retooling his life and business, turning his health around, and guiding helping professionals to reach more people with their good work.
    Bryan Kramer is a renowned business strategist, global keynote speaker, executive trainer and coach, two-time bestselling author and Forbes contributor. As former President and Co-Owner of PureMatter, a Silicon Valley global marketing agency since 2001, he sparked the Human-to-Human H2H movement that set out to humanize business through simpler communication, empathy, and celebrating our imperfections. His TED Talk on the subject in 2014 featured a TED “first – allowing mobile devices during the event to share the experience to illustrate his belief.

    Noted as the “Zen master to Digital Marketers” by Forbes, named a “Top 3 Thought Leadership Speakers You Don’t Want to Miss” in Forbes and in “The Top 100 Most Influential People on Twitter” by Business Insider, Bryan teaches speakers, executives and audiences how to up-level their storytelling and how to be more compelling and clear. With more than 350,000 social fans and followers, Bryan believes that being human is our competitive advantage because of our ability to leverage our emotional intelligence alongside technology to scale, in order to share stories in a human way – not corporate speak.
    Bryan’s first book “There Is No B2B or B2C: It’s Human to Human H2H” rose to the #1 spot in Business Books on Amazon in its first week. His second book, “Shareology: How Sharing is Powering the Human Economy”published by Morgan James, made USA Today’s Top 150 Book List the week of its release, as well as #1 on Amazon in Business books.

    The Outdoors was Our Internet: Bryan Kramer – Act 1

    Born and raised in San Jose, California, Bryan Kramer grew up playing in the fields and orchards of the land that would become Silicon Valley.  He reflects on his early days of saying goodbye to his parents in the morning, knowing that, because “the outdoors was our internet,” he and his friends wouldn’t be home until dark.
     Bryan tells of the gentle, firm push his parents gave him to pursue extracurricular activities for the sake of developing a broader appreciation for what life has to offer.
    He shares his experiences of the natural world as a place to rest, renew, “unbind” and reconnect with creativity, encouraging listeners to “feel the earth… and feel what it’s like to actually be a part of the earth…”
    Brian wraps Act 1 with his pivot from the dream of being an FBI agent in favor of business, Japanese, and the fine art of pizza delivery.  (No spoilers.  The true pizza reveal comes in Act 2!)
