    How to shift the mass shooting culture.

    How to shift the mass shooting culture.

    In this episode I’m taking a different approach to talking about mass shootings as it seems the most common arguments just lead to circular conversations with lots of passion that go nowhere.

    Here I’m talking about — MEN — grief, sadness, anger, rage, and entitlement. What I view as the cocktail of roots underneath mass shootings.

    Yes, I know that guns play a role in them as well (please read into the deep sarcasm) but talking about guns doesn’t seem to curb them being used on the public.

    Perhaps we need to look at this from a different angle.

    Enjoy.

    How to successfully handle your life as a man.

    How to successfully handle your life as a man.

    Masculinity and how we perceive it has evolved over the years. Just like in masculinity there has been a radical change in the men's movements too. To explain more about this subject, we will have Philip Folson as today's guest, a man who has spent over thirteen years teaching the power of leadership and has seen the growth of men's work.

    We will talk about masculinity, its initiation and the difference between feminine and masculine initiation at the cultural level, and the importance of killing the little boy within us (metaphorically) so that the true manly man resurfaces. We will talk about what honor is and when we can lose it as men, in addition to talking about astrology and exploring traumas and injuries during our lives.

    This is an incredible episode! Don't forget to share it with another man so that men's work continues to grow.



    ABOUT PHILIP FOLSOM

    Philip Folsom’s reputation in the team development and leadership world is legendary. His in-person events, seminars, and high ropes course experiences have dramatically improved the lives of over 500,000 people teaching the importance of peace, power, and sacred purpose. At the center of his coaching is his Tribe program, bringing the enormous benefits of the world's ancient tribe systems to modern day corporate teams such as Sony, Microsoft, Dreamworks, Apple and RedBull.

    Why it’s more than okay to be a man.

    Why it’s more than okay to be a man.

    At some point most men have heard, felt, or internalized the notion — it’s not okay to be a man.

    This is one of the most destructive and tragic falsities a man can believe. It’s responsible for more toxic behavior, self harm, and outward harm than any other belief men take in.

    When we change this, we stop the massively destructive behavior its shadow creates. Until we change this — we won’t.

    Men — if you’ve felt this, I’m sorry.

    If you’ve heard this, I’m sorry.

    If you believe this, I’m sorry — AND — it’s time to let this idea go and replace with one that works with you and for you. That works for your loved ones and works for the planet

    It’s pretty goddamn good to be a man. Own it.

    Cheers,

    Traver
