Jeddy Azuma, Creator of The Rising Man and The Rising Man Podcast on Reintroducing Ancient Rites of Passage to Modern Men in Need of Healing
IF WE DO NOT INITIATE OUR BOYS INTO THE VILLAGE, THEY WILL BURN IT DOWN JUST TO FEEL ITS WARMTH.– AFRICAN PROVERB About Jeddy Azuma "I am a curator of culture, philosopher, and leader of men. In 2017, I created "The Rising Man Podcast" to investigate modern masculinity, promote men's well-being, and to explore what it means to be a "man". Over the past 3 years, The Rising Man has evolved into an international, multi-generational movement of men whose collective purpose is to initiate an entire generation into purposeful leadership and personal power. I currently am responsible for creating and overseeing leadership development programs, wilderness Rites of Passage, and personal growth experiences for men." Join Stephanie as Jeddy talks about his journey, and the power of rites of passage in the life of a boy as he transitions to manhood. Jeddy's assertion that we cannot heal the negative or destructive aspects of societal miseducation and trauma unless we first stop labeling and dismissing "toxic masculinity" ( a phrase he'd like to eliminate from the lexicon) without trying to understand the cause or motivation behind the behaviors may be the societal change we need to effect in order to avoid the explosions of violence or self-harm we see every day in the news, on our streets and sometimes in our homes. Can we stop a mass shooting by removing the internal barriers to receiving help? Are fasts and forests a first-line, intersectional cure for this broken society? https://risingman.org/ The Rising Man Podcast --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/support

Dr. Erica Matluck, Founder of Seven Senses, Talks Modern Medicine, Healing, and Motherhood.
Naturopathic Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Reiki Master, Massage Therapist, and Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga Instructor. Erica is a modern medicine woman. Trained as a Naturopathic Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Reiki Master, massage therapist and multidisciplinary yoga instructor, she brings a truly holistic lens to health. Whether in private practice, classes or retreats, her work addresses the physical, mental, emotional and energetic obstacles to wellbeing and the art and science of healing. From this episode: Dr. Matluck explains the intersection of conventional western and energy medicine in her life- " I felt like I always was sensitive and empathic and, could sense energy and that type of thing, but I didn't have the language for it, or really even know was something that you could actually work with when I started working with this mentor. Reiki trainings are very straightforward and a lot of them happened in, one or two days, but at that time there wasn't a whole lot of structure around it. This was like 1999. I spent a lot of time with her months and in learning Reiki, I was working with pendulums and chakras and, or a stoma and all of these different things and really putting together and understanding of something that had always been there.I just didn't really know that it was something that you could have some control over and work with. So that's really where it all started. And, at that time I didn't even see myself, practicing Reiki for money or teaching or anything like that. It was really just for me, I was curious about how I could use it in my life. I ended up practicing on students because that was my community, but I didn't charge. And it wasn't a job. And I certainly didn't think of myself as an entrepreneur at that time. , from there, my path went in a lot of different directions and I'd even say for a while I deviated pretty far from my energetic roots and ended up working in conventional medicine for many years where, there was always this piece of me that was picking things up intuitively and thinking about energy and feeling energy, but I couldn't really speak to it in the clinical environment. Eventually I came full circle back to where I started. But really it took me, decades to synthesize all of these different things. As I went through the path because I started with Reiki and then I ended up doing a massage therapy program and doing massage and Reiki for quite a while. And that took me all over the world, really, where I continued to learn from different types of practitioners and different modalities and different approaches to healing and philosophy and then came back into a naturopathic medical program and a nurse practitioner program. Yoga had always been this parallel thread that I started in my teens. And I didn't see any of these disconnected for a very long time. I saw them as Oh, I can put on my Reiki hat and be over here, or I can put on my naturopathic doctor hat and be over here. But eventually I started to see all these parallels and how the body and the self really were expressing the same things through different languages and different sort of forms of expression." And eventually it came together as something that felt like really true for me as a practitioner. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/support

Christina Lonsdale, Conceptual Artist, Talks Auras, Energy, and The Importance of Finding Your Way.
What is the purpose of an Aura photo? According to Christina Lonsdale, Conceptual Artist, “It depends on the person taking the photo and their intentions behind it. We often talk about energy, identity, color, life as human beings, the energy that we put into the world, and how this changes because we all change energetically. The photo offers something tangible. It offers this ability to see something you don’t normally see. The biggest thing for me is when someone walks away with something new and surprising.” In this special episode, we're talking to Christina Lonsdale. Christina is a conceptual artist that found her prominence through @radianthuman_, a photography project that uses the Aura Cam 6000. Dubbed “the Annie Leibovitz of aura photography” by the New York Times and a “Dutch painter on acid” by Vogue, she has been an artist in residence at the Whitney Museum of American Art, shot aura photographs on-site at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, and worked with numerous brands including Nike, Google, Nordstrom, Refinery29, and Urban Outfitters. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, W, ID, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, and Time Out. We sat with Christa to talk about how she found her calling, what an Aura photograph means, how the camera works, what she loves about her work, and her newly released book, Radiant Human: Discover the Connection Between Color, Identity, and Energy.

'One way to get grounded is to second guess a fear," says Pauline Zeina. "That's how fear grips us - by inflicting a thought that makes us intrigued.

In this special episode, we're talking to Pauline Zenia about the importance of getting grounded, her view on BS wellness, stopping fear, embracing where we are, and energetic surgery.

Dr. Emily Horowitz - Rave Reviews For MDMA’s Therapeutic Potential
Rave New World 🌎✨ What's the deal with Psychedelics?! They have the power to facilitate a mystical-level experience, but for the last two decades, they’ve been regarded as a threat. Yet, with the recent permission to study these substances, they’re proving to be some of the best healing alternatives for PTSD. How is that possible?! In today's episode, we sit down with Dr. Emily Horowitz, PYSD, a clinical psychologist, to talk about her current work with MAPS for the clinical trials of MDMA. What is MDMA? MDMA is a synthetic compound with structural similarities to both the classic hallucinogen mescaline and psychostimulants or amphetamines. Unlike some other psychedelics, this one was created in a lab. It was discovered just before the First World War but wasn't studied until the '50s and '60s. It was studied because the U.S. military wanted to use the substance for military purposes like: interrogation, intelligence, and counterintelligence. By the 1980s, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) prohibited the use of MDMA altogether. However, over the past decade, there has been a resurgence in research to evaluate MDMA's therapeutic benefits, particularly for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The organization MAPS is at the forefront of this revolution. Curious about how a once-popular then prohibited drug gets evaluated? Check out this week's podcast to find out!

Is Lucid Dreaming The Answer To Our Dystopian Nightmare?
A global Pandemic, violence, poverty, environmental crisis, war, kids in cages...the only thing missing from this nightmare is a giant clown and quicksand. If you're like me, it feels overwhelming, dense, and constant. How, in this time of distress and uncertainty, can we bring more light into the world? According to Sarah Maclean Bicknell, this week's guest, the answer is in our dreams. Sound bizarre but cool? I think so too. I first reached out to Sarah Maclean Bicknell because I was obsessed with dream interpretation. I wanted to learn more about the meaning of my dreams. I thought she would explain what specific images in your dreams mean but what I got was so much more. Sarah Maclean Bicknell is a healer, teacher, and mentor who studied healing and ceremonial work in North American indigenous traditions for 30 years. She incorporated her Celtic roots into her current North American practice. People worldwide seek her out for intuitive readings, workshops, ceremonies, and her soul doctoring practice. She brought incredible amounts of wisdom to our interview, including a way to change our current dystopian narrative. In this episode, we discuss: - What it means when you dreamed about two birds - The healing power of dreams - The greater reality - How to encourage your children to be active dreamers - The gift of imagination - Why the nightmare we're living in is intensifying You can learn more about Sarah through her website: https://sarahmacleanbicknell.com/ If you like what you hear, please subscribe, rate, and review this podcast!

Why Are Female Friendships So Complicated?
Female Friendships: Why are female friendships so complicated? With the potential for emotional intimacy, why do we hold back? Is it because we're afraid of being judged?

Today Stephanie is joined by her sweet friends Waverly Davis and Ashley Stinson. Waverly Davis is the founder of Waverly Davis and Sacred Self. Waverly works with women on the individual and group level to help them transform overwhelm into ease through self-awareness, self-care, and self-love.

In this episode, we discuss: - The power of vulnerability - The importance of creating and setting boundaries - Lessons learned from dumping or being dumped - Toxic traits in friends and how to avoid them - Working through comparison You can find Waverly at - waverlydavis.com IG: @heywaverlydavis You can find Ashley at - ashleystinson.com IG: @theashleystinson If you like what you hear, please, subscribe, rate, and review this podcast. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/support

Far Out: How a Trip From Bank to Battlefield Led Jesse Gould to Psychedelic Science.
Psychedelics*-no longer confined to the realms of the mysterious and illicit... What was once a controversial recreational drug is now a recognized treatment for PTSD by both the science and medical field. This is particularly important news for young Veterans. According to the most recent data from the VA, Between 2005 and 2017, 78,875 veterans took their own lives — more than the number of Americans killed in each significant conflict except for World War II and the Civil War. The active-duty Army alone saw a 30% increase in deaths by suicide from 2019 to 2020. While these numbers are staggering and heartbreaking, the pace is not slowing down. Billions of tax dollars go towards the VA. Still, they don't create substantial change because of bureaucracy or poor organization in a system that leaves soldiers and veterans in dire need of support without help. If we know psychedelics exist and science proves their efficacy, why aren’t we using them to help those who have served our country? That's precisely what Jesse Gould, Founder of the Heroic Hearts Project, is trying to do. Heroic Hearts Project (https://www.heroicheartsproject.org/) is a not-for-profit that connects military veterans to effective psychedelic-based therapy programs. In this episode: - Jesse explains what the mission for the Heroic Hears project is - What a psychedelic is - How psychedelics help - The lack of support for Veterans - Where he came up with the idea for Heroic Hearts Project - His own experiences with Ayahuasca Please consider supporting his cause. There’s a variety of ways you can assist his team. Share this episode, share his information, or donate where and when you can. *For this episode, the psychedelics we’re referring to the forms MDMA, psilocybin, and ayahuasca. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/support

Episode 12 House Tour with Ilana Khin: Astrologer & Copywriter
Ilana Khin is an Astrologer & Copywriter based in Charlottesville. Visit her at Celestialcues.com About Ilana "I was in my early twenties and struggling to find my way. I didn’t know what to do, how to be, or where in this world I belonged. I knew I didn’t want to perpetuate harmful realities. I knew I wanted to be of service in a way that was authentic and meaningful. I wanted to know my purpose, and how to start living it. Astrology validated the pressure I felt, articulated my desires, and encouraged me to move towards them. After four years of practicing astrology, and three years of counseling others, I continue to be amazed by how much astrology can reveal. How it can clarify our life’s purpose in a way that’s practical and enchanting. How it can help us feel seen and understood in our struggles. How it can remind us to choose to follow what beckons us, rather than dragging our heels behind in what doesn’t." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegeode/support
