Themes: Liberation, Masculinity, Patriarchy, Karma, Relationships, Self-Awareness
John Wineland is a renowned author, teacher and speaker who guides both men and women in the realms of life purpose, relational communication, sexual intimacy and embodiment. I’ve admired John’s work for years, incorporating many of his teachings into my own journey.
Join us for this episode where we explore a new vision of awakened masculinity — one rooted in conscious awareness, unflinching responsibility and true leadership. One that invites men to feel deeply, disavow numbness and turn away from ego-driven dogma that has harmed women, the planet, and men themselves.
John's embodiment-driven teaching draws from not only over 30 years of experience of his own Buddhist meditative practice but from 13 years of intensive study and practice with renowned Yogic Intimacy teacher, David Deida. Drawing from Deida's revolutionary framework, as well as the deep lineages of Vajrayana, Tantra, Kundalini yoga, Taoist and Iron Shirt Qigong traditions, John seeks to create a profound experience for men and women longing to express their deepest desires with open, fierce and loving hearts. His new book, From The Core, shares a practical guide to redefine, heal and re-embrace masculinity in our world.
