Cultural Transformation is an INTERNAL process, not an ivory-tower theoretical discussion. It happens in the trenches of parenthood, relationship, career, and our individual pursuit of joy. It happens in the everyday conversations we have with the people all around us. And it happens on social media, all the time. It is both a collective effort, and a series of tiny, individual decisions. In this podcast, I’ll be interviewing authors, teachers, and successful corporate leaders who are working to evolve our culture in positive ways. I’m looking for answers. And I want to share the process.

    HeatherAsh Amara – How to Step Into Your Authenticity and Find Your Flow

    HeatherAsh Amara – How to Step Into Your Authenticity and Find Your Flow

    Tool of the Episode:







    [20:15] The Warrior Heart Practice















    About HeatherAsh Amara:







    [04:32] It’s not that we’re learning to be authentic. It’s that we’re learning how to not be inauthentic.







    In this episode, I talk with HeatherAsh Amara about her work with the Warrior Goddess Movement, and my own struggles to find balance as I go about the work of liberating my own inner voice.







    We talk about the challenges and blessings of stepping into authenticity in a world where we are mostly encouraged to play the roles we think we are supposed to be playing. We also talk about reaching for personal growth and transformation within the container of relationship and family, and how shifts in the larger world, economy, and culture can add even more spice to an already too-hot dish. 







    The gift HeatherAsh brings to this episode of Onewheel One World is a specific exercise called the Warrior Heart Practice. It’s a tool to help you unravel chaotic, confusing, and hurtful situations by giving you way to find a place to start.







    We are all formed by our experience, and I’m sure as many of you know – our greatest challenges are also our greatest teachers. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode of the show!







    Show Notes:







    [00:59] What is the ignition of your inner revolution and what does liberating your inner voice mean to you?







    [02:00] They (especially mothers) are getting caught in a role, instead of living their authentic expression of it.







    [02:32] While it’s challenging to step back into your authentic self, it’s so rewarding.







    [03:18] What is the process of “stepping into your authentic self?







    [03:38] It always starts with making a commitment to yourself.







    [04:08] You also know it’s going to be messy sometimes.







    [04:32] It’s not that we’re learning to be authentic. It’s that we’re learning how to not be inauthentic.







    [05:43] How do you work within your partnership to stay connected while liberating your inner voice?







    [06:15] Get really clear. What’s my intent within this relationship at this time?







    [07:58] Getting clear about what you’re learning how to do doesn’t mean you can do it yet.







    [09:04] There is always an awkward transition point.







    [10:24] Be vulnerable about where you’re struggling.







    [10:33] If you’re triggered, you can’t have a clear conversation.







    [12:51] The qualities of warrior that I’m inviting women to embody are clarity, focus, commitment.







    [13:29] The excess of warrior is what we see in the culture right now.







    [14:40] Find a sense of humor. That’s the biggest piece.







    [15:17] Anytime I’m having a reaction to something big, where I’m getting triggered quickly, that’s when I know it’s not about the situation. It’s about something deeper.







    [19:38] Where does one begin to unravel this? Where is the loose thread?

    Mark Greene - How We Can All Get Out of the #Manbox

    Mark Greene - How We Can All Get Out of the #Manbox

    Tool of the Episode:







    [32:36] One of the things we can do now is listening with curiosity, something we can do intentionally in both our personal and professional relationships.















    About Mark:







    Mark Greene has been writing, speaking, and participating in the conversation about modern manhood. In his work, he pinpoints the subtle differences between culture and identity.







    He talks about the potential to grow a whole set of relational capacities that have sadly, for the most part, been denied to men by a whole litany of invisible cultural rules. In this interview, we talk about what culture is, how it impacts us, and how a growing number of men all over the world are rejecting the rules of the #manbox culture, for very good reasons!







    [27:05] The problem is the culture of this man box manhood attacking EVERY  masculinity equally. Man box culture is not about doing it right. It’s about creating a hierarchy of power to ensure the men always distrust each other, and never feel like they’ve ever fully succeeded. You’re not good enough, keep trying. And so on. And it happens all the way up the hierarchy. All men playing by these rules are going to face the experience of isolation.







    You’re not good enough, keep trying. And so on. And it happens all the way up the hierarchy. All men playing by these rules are going to face the experience of isolation.







    Mark’s books include Remaking Manhood, The Relational Book of Parenting (co-authored by his wife Saliha Bava,) and the new Little #MeToo Book for Men. You can find more about their work at ThinkPlayPartners.







    Show Notes:







    [5:00}] “The little space between culture and identity gives men  a place to explore what they REALLY need, vs what they’ve been TOLD they need to thrive.”







    [6:28] Rules for being a “real man” according to the man box include:







    * Men are providers, not caregivers.* Men never show their emotions.* Men are leaders.* Men are confident.* Men are heterosexual.* Men always get the girls.* Men are sports-focused over all else.







    This defines men by what they do, not by who they are. Self-reflection is not a part of this identity. Not only is it not taught. It’s a threat to man box culture.







    [10:32] Women have to be a part of the man box conversation, because women are integral to how men define themselves, and vice versa.







    [12:43] The ability to create community. That’s what we strip boys and men of.







    [13:00] We know that we’re living in a culture that’s undergoing an epidemic of loneliness.







    [13:39] 1 out of every 2 Americans, all ages, are either sometimes or always feeling alone.” As far as the insurance company sees it, chronic loneliness is the equivalent heath risk to smoking a pack of cigarettes per day. (Study from Cigna health insurance.)







    [14:36] I don’t consider traditional manhood to be a bad thing. I consider the enforcement of traditional manhood to be a bad thing. The man box is enforcing a caricature of all the most negative aspects of these versions of manhood.







    [15:05] I think the roots of this disconnection stem back to the beginning of the industrial revolution. When the men were on the factory floors and they disconnected from the routines of family that would have nurtured the more positive and collectively oriented aspects of their masculinity.







    [15:55] The only way we’re going to break out of it, is when the people who are being the most negatively impacted start to say, “No.

Warrior and Goddess balance

I love how the conversation between Kaia Tingley and Heather Ash Amara was flowing. Kaia effortlessly wove in her personal experiences and elicited personal examples from Heather Ash Amara as well, which enhanced the relatability of the podcast. Some of the elements, such as checking in with my feelings, are very familiar to me. But the idea of dissecting a situation based on feelings, story, truth, and intention were new and quite inspiring to me. I highly recommend listening to the Onewheel One World podcasts.

Hope

While listening I found hope. As an older person, one can find themselves reflecting on things they could have done differently but realizing there are tools out there to grow ourselves and others in a positive way is reassuring.

This podcast is excellent!

It’s as good as the major broadcast network productions, and easy to listen to and understand.
