In this episode, Luke Adler joins me once more to explore an issue many men experience – stagnation, or feeling stuck. Men in particular often suffer from emotional stagnation, manifesting as feelings of despair, depression, or emotional numbness – all of which can have serious physical and spiritual consequences.
Luke enlightens us with his knowledge of Chinese medicine, explaining how emotional stagnation can disrupt bodily systems, promoting inflammation and potential loss of function. We also consider the societal construct of masculinity and the unique challenge men face in redefining their roles. Our shared goal is to shape a new cultural norm where men can connect, support each other, and break free of outdated masculine norms like “the macho man” or “the nice guy.”
Experience the masculine vortex by joining our next the Heart of Shadow cohort now.
