    Jeddy Azuma, Creator of The Rising Man and The Rising Man Podcast on Reintroducing Ancient Rites of Passage to Modern Men in Need of Healing

    Jeddy Azuma, Creator of The Rising Man and The Rising Man Podcast on Reintroducing Ancient Rites of Passage to Modern Men in Need of Healing

    IF WE DO NOT INITIATE OUR BOYS INTO THE VILLAGE, THEY WILL BURN IT DOWN JUST TO FEEL ITS WARMTH.– AFRICAN PROVERB 

    About Jeddy Azuma
    "I am a curator of culture, philosopher, and leader of men. In 2017, I created "The Rising Man Podcast" to investigate modern masculinity, promote men's well-being, and to explore what it means to be a "man". Over the past 3 years, The Rising Man has evolved into an international, multi-generational movement of men whose collective purpose is to initiate an entire generation into purposeful leadership and personal power. I currently am responsible for creating and overseeing leadership development programs, wilderness Rites of Passage, and personal growth experiences for men."
    Join Stephanie as Jeddy talks about his journey, and the power of rites of passage in the life of a boy as he transitions to manhood. 
    Jeddy's assertion that we cannot heal the negative or destructive aspects of societal miseducation and trauma unless we first stop labeling and dismissing "toxic masculinity" ( a phrase he'd like to eliminate from the lexicon) without trying to understand the cause or motivation behind the behaviors may be the societal change we need to effect in order to avoid the explosions of violence or self-harm we see every day in the news, on our streets and sometimes in our homes. Can we stop a mass shooting by removing the internal barriers to receiving help? Are fasts and forests a first-line, intersectional cure for this broken society?

    Dr. Erica Matluck, Founder of Seven Senses, Talks Modern Medicine, Healing, and Motherhood.

    Dr. Erica Matluck, Founder of Seven Senses, Talks Modern Medicine, Healing, and Motherhood.

    Naturopathic Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Reiki Master, Massage Therapist, and Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga Instructor.
    Erica is a modern medicine woman. Trained as a Naturopathic Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Reiki Master, massage therapist and multidisciplinary yoga instructor, she brings a truly holistic lens to health. Whether in private practice, classes or retreats, her work addresses the physical, mental, emotional and energetic obstacles to wellbeing and the art and science of healing. 
    From this episode: Dr. Matluck explains the intersection of conventional western and energy medicine in her life- " I felt like I always was sensitive and empathic and, could sense energy and that type of thing, but I didn't have the language for it, or really even know  was something that you could actually work with  when I started working with this mentor. Reiki trainings are very straightforward and a lot of them happened in, one or two days, but at that time there wasn't a whole lot of structure around it. This was like 1999. I spent a lot of time with her months and in learning Reiki, I was working with pendulums and chakras and, or a stoma and all of these different things and really putting together and understanding of something that had always been there.I just didn't really know that it was something that you could have some control over and work with. So that's really where it all started. And, at that time I didn't even see myself, practicing Reiki for money or teaching or anything like that. It was really just for me, I was curious about how I could use it in my life.
     I ended up practicing on students because that was my community, but I didn't charge. And it wasn't a job. And I certainly didn't think of myself as an entrepreneur at that time. , from there, my path went in a lot of different directions and I'd even say for a while I  deviated pretty far from my energetic roots and ended up working in conventional medicine for many years where, there was always this piece of me that was picking things up intuitively and thinking about energy and feeling energy, but I couldn't really speak to it in the clinical environment. Eventually I came full circle back to where I started. But really it took me, decades to synthesize all of these different things. As I went through the path because I started with Reiki and then I ended up doing a massage therapy program and doing massage and Reiki for quite a while. And that took me all over the world, really, where I continued to learn from different types of practitioners and different modalities and different approaches to healing and philosophy  and then came back into a naturopathic medical program and a nurse practitioner program. Yoga had always been this parallel thread that I started  in my teens. And I didn't see any of these disconnected for a very long time. I saw them as Oh, I can put on my Reiki hat and be over here, or I can put on my naturopathic doctor hat and be over here. But eventually I started to see all these parallels and how the body and the self really were expressing the same things through different languages and different sort of forms of expression."

    And eventually it came together as something that felt like really true for me as a practitioner.

    Christina Lonsdale, Conceptual Artist, Talks Auras, Energy, and The Importance of Finding Your Way.

    Christina Lonsdale, Conceptual Artist, Talks Auras, Energy, and The Importance of Finding Your Way.

    What is the purpose of an Aura photo?

    According to Christina Lonsdale, Conceptual Artist, “It depends on the person taking the photo and their intentions behind it. We often talk about energy, identity, color, life as human beings, the energy that we put into the world, and how this changes because we all change energetically. The photo offers something tangible. It offers this ability to see something you don’t normally see. The biggest thing for me is when someone walks away with something new and surprising.”

    In this special episode, we're talking to Christina Lonsdale. Christina is a conceptual artist that found her prominence through @radianthuman_, a photography project that uses the Aura Cam 6000.

    Dubbed “the Annie Leibovitz of aura photography” by the New York Times and a “Dutch painter on acid” by Vogue, she has been an artist in residence at the Whitney Museum of American Art, shot aura photographs on-site at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, and worked with numerous brands including Nike, Google, Nordstrom, Refinery29, and Urban Outfitters. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, W, ID, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, and Time Out.

    We sat with Christa to talk about how she found her calling, what an Aura photograph means, how the camera works, what she loves about her work, and her newly released book, Radiant Human: Discover the Connection Between Color, Identity, and Energy.

    Pauline Zeina - Psychic Medium + 21st Century Salem Witch.

    'One way to get grounded is to second guess a fear," says Pauline Zeina. "That's how fear grips us - by inflicting a thought that makes us intrigued. Show that train of thought disinterest because if something hooks you, it has you. If you question it, however, it can't hook you." In this special episode, we're talking to Pauline Zenia about the importance of getting grounded, her view on BS wellness, stopping fear, embracing where we are, and energetic surgery. Pauline is a Psychic Medium who receives messages and provides energetic healing in multiple pathways. She talks us through her services, her unique gifts and offers some excellent advice for the woo-curious people who are dipping their toes into the esoteric space.

Steph is one-in-a-million

I absolutely love Steph’s voice and personality and perspective as a host! She’s one-in-a-million and at the same time every one of us when starting or searching for something new. Her transparency and vulnerability is like being in the room sitting on a couch with her and her guest. Love it!

Funny, accessible, wise

Stephanie is a riot, and she knows her stuff. It’s nice to hear someone discuss spirituality in an informative way that feels relatable.
