    #33 – Witalij Martynow – The Breathwork Guy, Healing through the Body, Psychedelics and more

    Witalij Martynow (@witality) is a breathwork facilitator and shamanic practitioner that bridges science and spirituality to create powerful healing experiences.  

    This man has endured extreme physical, emotional, and psychological pains. Thanks to them, he understood the power of our minds and the wisdom of our bodies.  

    With 6 feet 10 inches of height, he started this story a few years ago as a basketball player.  

    After realizing that success is primarily mental, he decided to dive into this topic. He distilled his expertise in the book “The other eighty – the ultimate guide to Master your mind.”.  

    His work is based on the belief in releasing energy and emotions due to his ideology that everything is energy and that the body is driven by many emotions and retained feelings. He combines plant medicines and breathwork techniques to help people release their traumas and get conscious of their patterns. Witalij is a firm believer that everything in your body is connected. The basis of his ideas is that everything is correlated, and the body itself can help understand why some things happen to a person and why they experience pain or keep repeating some patterns.  

    Self-acceptance is another strong base on his sessions since he’s driven by the idea that a lot of people get into a habit of, I would say, toxic positivity because people focus so much on the good stuff that they discredit and ignore the presence of their shadow.  

    Watch the blogpost in this link: https://jjruescas.com/witalij-martynow/   

    On his journey, he realized that by working with the shadow, people expand their capacity for positivity because instead of being afraid of something or running from something, if people face it, they will fill that space with love. Because eventually, that shadow is also us, and he tries to teach people that if we neglect and do not integrate certain aspects of our personality and emotions, we’re not having enough love for ourselves.  

    Witalij is a teacher and a student himself; he claims that the best master is the person who can always call himself an apprentice. He tries to help people realize that they can heal themselves by doing some of the techniques he teaches, by releasing feelings that were stuck into the body without even noticing. He practices the idea of healing and believes that everyone starts their journey in a different spot. Still, one thing is for sure, Witalij encourages people to realize they are healers.  

    In this conversation, you will learn:  

    - What Breathwork is and what you can use it for 

    - Healing emotions through the body 

    - Why Self-love is the key Trauma Release 

    - An introduction to Plant Medicine (Psychedelics) and NLP 

    …and more!

    #32 – Marcos Sponton – Yerbo, Burnout, and technology applied to achieve mental well-being

    #32 – Marcos Sponton – Yerbo, Burnout, and technology applied to achieve mental well-being

    Marcos Sponton (@MarcosSponton) is the founder and CEO of Yerbo.  He’s also the man behind Machinalis, an artificial intelligence company that positioned itself as the largest company in its area in Latin America and led to its acquisition by MercadoLibre. Besides, he’s recognized by Forbes as one of the 30 most promising Argentinians for using data to solve business challenges. He is now forging the future of preventive mental well-being at work.

    He is convinced that any business can be created or managed without burning out people. Marcos prioritizes mental wellness in the day-to-day activities of any company; he knows the importance of Yerbo, which uses technology in favor of mental well-being.

    Marcos does what he does and finds his inspiration, because he doesn’t accept burnout as a common thing in businesses, he thinks it shouldn’t be “business casual”. He grows and unfolds in this environment also because he lived the burnout experience first hand, by almost losing his father because of burnout symptoms.

    Its entrepreneurial purpose is to make mental well-being at work accessible for those in digital environments so that it ceases to be a luxury or the good fortune of a boss who cares about it.

    The importance of his work is sustained by the creation of consciousness and awareness in the work environment. He claims that understanding is not just knowing something but being connected to it, being conscious about where something is happening, and when it is happening in a person or team.

    Watch the blogppost on this link: https://jjruescas.com/marcos-sponton/

    He also reminds us of a saying: “People don’t quit their job, they quit their boss,” and the reality is that’s why he suggests being much more focused on leadership collaboratively and horizontally by creating a safe environment where everyone feels safe to speak their minds.

    In this conversation you will learn about:

    - Burnout 

    - Mental Health 

    - Anti burnout tips 

    - Leadership 

    …and more!
