Frameworks for growth based in stereotypically masculine norms can be confining and even devastating for men. In this special, jointly hosted episode we explore ways for men to grow that are rooted in authenticity and uniqueness, rather than stuck inside a box.
Have you felt stuck in models of masculinity that don’t feel like you?
The stereotypically masculine roles may not reflect who you are.
And it can be challenging when people and careers reward for these stereotypical behaviors.
So, what then?
How can you grow and develop as a human being without having to fit into these stereotypes?
Can you become a more confident and powerful leader and lover without leaning on our cultural norms of masculinity?
Today’s guest and host of the podcast Relationship Alive, Neil Sattin, and I, believe you can.
We recorded a special jointly hosted Man Alive episode where we discuss how men can grow without a being stuck in the stereotypes or expectations of what is “manly.”
In this conversation we cover:
- Whether masculine/feminine distinctions are helpful or harmful
- How to move beyond stereotypical masculine norms and find your unique power
- The foundations of creating real intimacy and connection with your partner
- Neil and Shana’s experience supporting men with their truth and desires
- Experiments to create more spark and connection in your romantic relationship
I hope you feel supported to grow in ways that are unique to you, rather than a worn out, empty mold of what a man is “supposed to be.”
