We grew up in a world we didn’t create. And one idea after the next—whether it was culture or society—we were told how to look, how to feel, and who to be. We were told that if we checked off the “right” boxes (think: career, car, money), we’d feel good, we’d be whole, and—naturally—we’d be set. But, turns out, there’s more to the story.

On The Great Unlearn, Cal dives into unlearning and questioning what the world taught us, and—in the process—how to be the truest version of yourself, minus the b******t. Whether it’s figuring out how to navigate a relationship, dealing with your emotions, diving into spirituality, or just feeling comfortable in your own skin, Cal and friends navigate the choppy waters of what it really takes to unlearn all the ideas we took for granted, and how to be the best version of what, sometimes, can be so hard to be: yourself.

    92. Living on Purpose and Connected Through Nervous System Regulation and Simple Daily Wellness Practices | Luke Storey, John Trent, Dr. John Lieurance

    Bringing y'all a quadcast today with some of my favorite people to learn from and with — Luke Story, Josh Trent and Dr. John Lieurance. Why are these some of my favorite people to learn from? Because they speak from the wisdom of their experiences and this is something that I've learned to be the most potent medicine in my personal journey.

    We jump all over the board of self care and evolution from embarking on vision quests, to dialing in on the basics of healing our body, to learning techniques for amplifying the power of connection with our loved ones. All that to say, these aren't checklist items, they take purposeful action and practice – simple, yet not easy. Here's to always learning ways to be more on purpose and connected.

Grounded in Truth

The minute I started listening to this podcast I knew this was speaking to my spirit. Cal does an excellent job of not only bringing on amazing authentic beings, but he himself creates a grounded space to express that authenticity. Each interview is always deep and personal and always has me listening to the end wanting more. It's also incredibly inspiring to hear from men that are apart of the healing journey. And I know I want to be around men like that, who striving to be the best they can be so that they can be there for others. I say this now, I don't know when it will happen, but I truly believe I will meet you someday Cal. You are so inspiring and have been helping me (with your podcast) be the best authentic man I can be.
