If you are a man, this is an episode you cannot miss, because it’s dedicated to us.
We usually see pain, vulnerability and anger as a negative, but what happens when we use it to heal? Today's guest is an author who has wisely put his knowledge into books to help others and he will help us answer this question. I am talking about the true master; Robert Masters. We dove into intimacy, grief, sex and wounds; we also talked about the divisions we have as a country, why vulnerability is allowed in man, and why unexpressing our grief is so destructive.
Robert Augustus Masters, PhD, is a relationship expert, an integral psychotherapist, and a psychospiritual guide and trainer, with a doctorate in psychology. He is the cofounder, with his wife Diane, of the Masters Center for Transformation (MCT), a school featuring relationally-rooted psychospiritual work devoted to deep healing and fully embodied awakening. A substantial portion of his work involves training MCT practitioners. He is also the author of many books, including Transformation Through Intimacy, Spiritual Bypassing, Emotional Intimacy, and To Be a Man.
His uniquely integral, intuitive work, which he developed over the past thirty-five years, dynamically blends the psychological and physical with the spiritual, emphasizing full-blooded embodiment, authenticity, emotional openness and literacy, deep shadow work, and the development of relational maturity.
