The holidays are a time of year when life can be more challenging than ever. How can men find support and get through these hard times, coming out even stronger and more empowered? Today’s podcast guest Kenny Mammerella-D’Cruz talks about tools he has created to help get men through the holidays and other hard times.
This time of year can be especially challenging. Holidays are supposedly celebratory. But they bring up memories of past grief and loss. They can also bring up idealized images of how you wish life was, or self-critical thoughts about how you think you, or your life, doesn’t stack up.
Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz is a man who has experienced the kind of challenges most of us never will. At seven years old, in Uganda, his family received a phone call that the Secret Service was out to kill them. He had to leave his school, his friends and his country! This has created incredible resilience and a depth of wisdom that Kenny now brings to men around the world, through his men’s circles and facilitator trainings.
In our Man Alive podcast conversation we discussed…
- How men’s circles can bring relief and support to your life
- A game-changing perspective shift on pain and triggers that takes you from suffering to growing
- How to take on life as man, rather than being stuck in boy mode
- The power of integrating emotions and bodily awareness into your relationships and work
- How stories and ideas you hold about yourself cut you off from people and limit possibility
When you are done with this episode, check out our first episode, where we focused even more on How to Be a Powerful Man, Without Ignoring the Boy in You.
I know this year is different from other years. I hope you create a good holiday season where you get to connect with people who care about you.
If you are struggling, please find someone you trust to talk to rather than trying to go it alone. If you want support in your love life and/or career next year, fill out this form to tell me more about yourself.
I have two spots available for coaching starting in the new year.
