The Collective Responsibility of Healthy, Masculine Leadership With Connor Beaton

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

Society always needs healthy, masculine leadership. In this episode, I was joined by a recent guest on the podcast to chat about this. We talked about why authoritarian and dictator style leaderships are so popular and I shared one of the best leadership lessons I saw as a young adult. We talk about the shadow masculine leadership and how it uses division and segregation to come into power and divide. Connor and I discuss why men need to prioritize self-care, get in community with other men and how this moment in time during the pandemic should be a wake-up call to many.

About Connor Beaton

After apprenticing with a pupil of Carl Jung, he developed an innovative approach to healing the Shadow – the part of our psyche that causes us to self-sabotage – by drawing from experiential and training-based methodologies like Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, along with transformative breathwork and meditative practices.

He's now been working for almost a decade as a NY-based coach, teacher, and speaker to help men (and women) from all over the world walk through their darkness and grow in the realms of mental clarity, relational communication, actualizing their potential and sexual intimacy.

He has a no-BS attitude coupled with a compassionate understanding of our own human limitations. He's coached hundreds of men (and women) through private coaching, group work, workshops, retreats and masterminds.

In 2014, he founded ManTalks, a community for men looking to expand and deepen their sense of self-awareness.
