The Paradigm of Emotional Intelligence in Modern Masculinity

The contemporary woman – a profoundly interconnected, intellectual, and superior entity – seeks a companion who mirrors her emotional depth and self-awareness. She is unlikely to accommodate a man persistently detached from his feelings and self-understanding. It is crucial to note that her ideal partner isn’t just an outwardly expressive, emotionally open individual; instead, he displays intelligent emotional articulation, constituting a pivotal element of a healthy, modern man.

Possessing command over one’s emotions equates to having mastery over life itself. This emotional control extends to a comprehensive understanding of personal weaknesses, exemplifying genuine power, as opposed to conforming to the concept of a ‘new-age man.’ Authentic leadership materializes from openness and self-awareness, as opposed to wallowing in self-pity.

An emotionally intelligent man stands out by maintaining control over his feelings, demonstrating clarity, decision-making capabilities, and shouldering responsibility for his actions. He establishes trust and security through a consistent portrayal of conspicuous self-awareness. His emotional expression is neither leaky nor overwhelming; instead, he embodies stability and confidence in his identity.

It requires substantial bravery to admit past mistakes and acknowledge actions that may have caused others pain. Such courage and self-awareness enable one to comprehend internal emotions, take responsibility for them, and share the experience in a relatable, safe manner with a partner.

This emotional communication signifies caring, interest in a partner’s needs, and more importantly, a man ready to accept his shortcomings and enhance his life. Emotions play a significant role, but it’s not solely about them. It’s about self-regulation, self-understanding, and the ability to endure a spectrum of human experiences. These capabilities reflect resilience, robustness, assurance, and dedication.

Such traits are undeniably attractive, demonstrating well-rounded wisdom and the capacity to navigate complex situations. Adopting a victimized, passive stance, and blaming your feelings or disagreements on others narrows your perspective. You unwittingly play the victim, relinquishing responsibility for your internal experiences.

Your emotional reactions serve as mirrors, reflecting your hidden fears, wounds, and dysfunctions. Neglecting these indicators, projecting, and shaming others only steep you in ignorance, extreme selfishness, and unpredictability, resulting in a volatile character. We’ve all been that man at some point; a person driven by fear and concealed beneath a façade of bravado. However, this doesn’t need to define you.

Emotional intelligence is not only appealing but also essential for our collective evolution. After all, men too possess a limbic system, crucial for emotional processing. Your emotionally intelligent contribution is needed by the world, gentlemen.

One is glad to be of service.

The Divide Between True Intimacy

“Proximity draws us close, near and bonds us. To be proximate to each other, we must remove the unconscious blockages that Dyer is from stepping in to connected and expansive presence”…

Man’s Greatest Pain

A personal story from a very visceral place…

To not live in our potential. To not be self-actualised. To not express our gifts in the world. To hold back the innate power to give, create and provide life support to our journey and to those who need it are some of our greatest pain.


Breathe… We hear this all the time. What does it mean? Breathing deliberately with intention helps us grow, be healthier and simply put overall better at life…
Breath literally saved my life. Having experienced physical and emotional abuse, abandonment and volatility as a child my nervous system were conditioned for pain and tension.

Transcending Into The Ethereal in Sacred Union

Intimate sexual union is more about harmonizing the energetic poles between two beings than it is about reaching a particular “state”. The greatest “mistake” we make though is thinking that harmonization is a dulling down of our polarities or expression in order to be in some type of mundane state or balance… Quite the contrary.

The Change Of Man

Men have been in flux for a great deal of time – transmuting, reviving, redefining and realising their role, place and understanding of self. For those men especially that are not graced by (or have produced) affluence and have access to resources these are trying times on their masculinity and their perception of self…
