Can you imagine living a week-long without food, water, shelter, or company? That sounds crazy, right? Today's guest, Jeddy Azuma, will explain to us about the ritual that leads men to initiate a new life where the inner joy will be found.
Jeddy decided to start living his life dream: Creating an intentional community with two of his best friends. He will share the experience with us: The start-up, how he deals with the different personalities living in a close community. Also, we dived into his life as a guide and mentor for many men that took the risk of spending a week living in discomfort.
Jeddy Azuma is the host of “The Rising Man Podcast” (Top #150 in Educational Podcasts) and Creator of The Rising Man Movement. He has been in the field of Men’s Leadership and Empowerment for the past 10 years.
As a Rites of Passage Guide, Mentor, and Leadership Coach, Jeddy has impacted the lives of hundreds of men on his mission to initiate an entire generation of men into power and purpose-driven service to the world. He is a Founding Father of Conscious Man Brotherhood and a lead coach in Man Cave, Unleash the Beast, and King’s Court.
Despite his many roles and contributions to “Men’s Work,” Jeddy considers his most important jobs to be Father and Husband.
“I always knew I wanted to make a major impact on the world, I just had NO idea how to do that in my 20’s. After numbing myself with substances and fear-based behaviors for years, I finally found a path in men’s work and rites of passage that fed my soul. And, I knew it was only a matter of time before I would give this medicine back to the men around me. NOW, I’m clear that the gift I have for my people is to prepare the next generation of men to lead their families, communities, and themselves powerfully and confidently into uncertain times.”
