EP158: How To Get An Authentic Connection

EP158: Opening Up to Authentic Connections

Many people put on a mask when they make a new friend, or start dating someone. They assume that wearing a mask is the same as being private. But that's not true. You can still be you, but not disclose information about your thoughts or your feelings. If you wear a mask, you're attempting to lie to the other person, trying to control their perception of you by telling them you're something other than who you are. Wearing a mask will always result in feeling unfulfilled. Even if you get what you want, you'll never feel truly seen or truly loved. If you're interested in some one on one coaching support with me, go here, and let's set up a discovery call and have a conversation. This episode is sponsored by Let's Get Checked.

EP158: Opening Up to Authentic Connections

EP157: Feminine Submission to Masculine Leadership

This was a juicy episode with Gillian Pothier. Gillian is a depth psychologist with advanced immersion in Jungian and Archetypal psychology. Gillian specializes in the masculine/feminine relationship and how, in order to maintain deep passion in a relationship, there needs to be hierarchy. For instance, that hierarchy states that the man (the masculine) leads, and the woman (the feminine) submits. At first glance, this seems archaic in thinking but, when you listen to Gillian, she speaks not of subservient, disempowered women. Rather, she speaks of honour, and how women can honour men (the masculine) and vice versa. But, in order for us to do so, we need to accept our energetic differences. That means that one person, energetically, is going to be the leader (the masculine), and the other the follower (the feminine. Typically the woman). It's in our differences as men and women that we can compliment one another. If we're the same, there's nothing to compliment. But, when we give up some of our power to the other person, that can be triggering, because it's vulnerable. But it's that vulnerability that brings us closer together. This episode won't suit everyone. If you like what Gillian speaks of, you can find her hereand here.

EP154: I Died....on Mushrooms

EThis is a personal, and rather emotional story. I don't often share this much, so this is quite a vulnerable episode for me. But, considering how powerful my most recent experience on psilocybin mushrooms (magic mushrooms) was, I wanted to share. (this was an "Ego Death" not an actual death...but it felt like it.) It was by far, the most challenging spiritual journey I've endured, and also the most rewarding. I came face to face with my own mortality. I don't know if this is going to be supportive. I don't know if this is going to be helpful. I did, however, simply want to share this experience because of it's profundity in my life. If you haven't already, remember to subscribe to this show, and leave a rating and a review. And if you feel compelled to reach out to me as a result of this episode, you can reach me at ryan [at] theintimatelifestyle.com or you can go to my website here.

EP151: The Importance of a Right of Passage for Men

How do you become a man? How do you know you're a man? In many cultures, a right of passage is designed to rip a boy from his mother. It then teaches him pain and struggle, because life is fucking hard and dangerous. Provided he makes it through the pain and the struggle, he is then initiated into manhood. Jeddy Azuma is dedicated to helping men go through their rights of passage into manhood. Our lives, as men, are lacking in the guidance our ancestors had. This is a truly fantastic conversation, with an amazing man. You can find out more about Jeddy and his initiations here.
