Welcome to the Rising Man Movement, where our mission is to initiate a new generation of fiercely loving and confident men. We envision a world in which ALL men are prepared to lead with integrity, express themselves authentically, and serve their communities. We accomplish this mission by covering all aspects of the male experience on the show, including shameless sexuality, masculine/feminine integration, environmental respect, indigenous wisdom, finding purpose, secrets of fatherhood, and much more.

Host Jeddy Azuma’s deep initiatory journey has taught him the importance of tribe and in person rites of passage ceremonies. For this reason, we are focused on our online fire circle offering and our 4 day Vision Fast rites of passage journey. In the fire circles, you are placed on a small team of men who are all dedicated to becoming men of service, joy, and integrity. In the group, we share openly, take on challenges, receive accountability, and experience true brotherhood.

    Fam Life 006 - Fatherhood Is A Rites Of Passage with Phil Gomez

    Fam Life 006 - Fatherhood Is A Rites Of Passage with Phil Gomez

    “Once we claim that we are something, we will constantly get tested to strengthen our ability to be just that.”
     
    Bringing new life into this planet is SCARY. From the weight of new responsibilities to the loss of freedom, new fathers often struggle in this transitional phase. Fam Life host Phil Gomez speaks to the journey of fatherhood in this solocast, bringing in the rites of passage model to help men make sense of this massive shift. Phil speaks to the needs of the new and prospective father - urging men to utilize community for collective problem solving, create a vision of the father they would like to be, and plan for what they cannot see. 
     
    Highlights:
    [06:20] How to transcend fears about having your first child. [09:50] What is severance and how can you benefit from this phase? [10:58] Why new fathers fear losing freedom. [14:15] Can you name what within you needs to die for you to be better?  [17:21] Why you should have examples of positive models of fatherhood. [21:20] How to show up powerfully and in service during the actual birth. [24:01] Why you are constantly evolving as a father. [27:20] How embodying your virtues will always look different in action. [31:01] Why talking to other fathers is instrumental to learning. [31:31] Why utilizing community to collectively problem solve is vital to incorporation.

    RMP 212 - The Misunderstood History of Masculinity & Patriarchy with Eric McDonald

    RMP 212 - The Misunderstood History of Masculinity & Patriarchy with Eric McDonald

    “As a culture and society, what are we doing that’s pushing people into isolation and fear?” From studying some of history’s ugliest aspects, Eric McDonald has gleaned vital truths about humanity and masculinity. As a writer, University professor, meditation teacher, and storyteller, Eric has an incredible way with words and talks about history from the heart. The conversation centers around the history of masculine culture and how it affects us today. The theme is RESPONSIBILITY - as simply complaining about the state of the world serves no one. We also cover why patriarchy is not inherently bad, how to find practical meaning in history, and why healing our ancestral wounds will transform the world. 
     
    Highlights:
    [04:11] How looking at the world through the lens of other cultures can lead to greater understanding. [07:50] Are our masculine norms derived from the Romans? [16:19] Is the subconscious perpetuation of racism and sexism a bigger problem than assummed? [18:00] Why patriarchy is NOT inherently bad [22:19] Why difficult conversations with those in your life can contribute to a positive shift. [24:20] Do we have to take responsibility for the sins of our ancestors? [30:11] What does it take to heal ancestral wounds? [32:41] Are we responsible for fixing the entire planet? [37:11] What modern day lessons did Eric learn from studying slavery? [43:15] Can we claim culpability and responsibility for our role in present day atrocities? [47:01] How capitalism and a profit-first mindset leads to exploitative dynamics.

    RMFN 012 - Can Playing It Small Serve The World?

    “The more unsafe the world feels the more I lean into what’s comfortable, which feeds into the systems that got us here.”
    The concept of taking massive action and rocking the world is all the rage these days. But is that actually leading to transformation? Big swings often miss, lead to burnout, or come from a willingness to be seen. Can you take pride and make an impact in the small actions? In this episode of First Nature, Shawn Berry shares his heartfelt roadmap to embodying the changes you wish to see. Listen in to learn how an addiction to convenience is ruinous, why modeling nature can help bring harmony, and ways to connect more deeply with nature.

    Highlights:
    [06:39] Does playing it small serve the world?  [09:42] Is there such a thing as playing too big? [13:28] How to find BALANCE between making big plays and taking small actions. [17:19] Can you mimic nature and embody sustainability? [21:07] Where are you addicted to convenience?  [24:15] How community fits into a first nature lifestyle. [28:30] What if you shared your small impactful decisions on social media?  [31:21] Can you get out into nature today and spend meaningful time? [32:19] Take notice in the morning - the dawn chorus of birds has been going nonstop for millions of years!
