  • Have you ever felt like giving up?
  • What did you do when everything felt stacked against you?
  • The Importance of developing your will.
  • How would you describe the Ritual Master path?

  • You both mentioned purpose, does that mean you know your purpose or is this MMS path helping you discover it more and more?
  • Andy shares his biggest fear.
  • What are some helpful things that anyone can put to use?

With yet another tragic school shooting in the United States, some regular guys get together to discuss, to feel and to learn. Hopefully.

  • Can anything be solved via social media?

  • More Good Guys with guns.
  • Armed veterans at every school.
  • What can and can’t be legislated.

The United States has had 90 mass shooters between 1966 and 2012. What is the magic number that will be enough for you to take action?

Guns ARE the reason that so many innocent people die in these mass shootings. Guns are not the reason the killing happens. Guns are not the cause of violence, but they are the reason the fatalities are so high.

If guns were harder to get, more people would be alive due to fewer accidental shootings, suicides, and mass shootings.

Don’t agree? Come on the show and lets talk.

Please, engage someone in an actual conversation. Don’t only spread memes around the Internet.

Ask someone else what they think can be done to prevent more mass shootings in our schools. Then listen to their answer.

There is no single right or wrong path. Find the way that brings you the most joy and stick with it as long as that is true.

Is there any way you can root yourself more in the realm of love?
As traditional religions got more organized and gained more control, they’ve moved away from the love they were rooted in and more into fear.

“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” ~ Meister Eckhart

Real Men Feel: Ep. 79, Exploring The Men School

Exploring The Men School with Jan Darwin Hutchins Episode 79, February 6, 2018

This week Andy Grant and Appio Hunter discover the path to the creation of The Men School, a school dedicated to cultivating the divine masculine in all of us with Jan Darwin Hutchins.

“Why, after having been a lone wolf all my life, did I feel so alone?” ~Jan Darwin Hutchins

Jan was successful at a young age, living the dream as a TV sports anchor, yet he felt rather empty. In his 50s he realized he had made no real friends over his life. An experience witnessing the support a dying friend received from a men’s group made him realize he was not alone and that he could trust other men. He discovered there was an initiation he could do to become one of those men. Jan did it and confirmed that he was not alone, didn’t need to be alone and could trust men.

“The problem with life is there is no end to the problems.”

Topics Covered Include:

  • Jan’s background including TV news, politics, yoga and more.
  • What lead to the creation of The Men School?
  • The masks we all wear.
  • The need for and benefits of doing the inner work.
  • The power of men’s groups.
  • The current state of The Men’s School and plans for the future.
  • Do we ever graduate from Men School?
  • Jan shares some research on wolves in Yellowstone.
  • OKness and presence.
  • The MankindProject
  • How does a man find his truth?
  • Is life simple or hard?

All three men answer the question: If there was one thing you could teach or make all men aware of, what would it be?

TheMenSchool
“We are a learning community cultivating the sacred deep masculine in us all.”
As social animals, we require a source of stabilization from outside ourselves. Our shared connections and, co-corrections, literally keep us sane.

TheMenSchool is here to:
—keep learning to model the divine masculine
—see you excel in your individual life

Real Men Feel: Ep. 74, Endings and Beginnings

Endings and Beginnings with Pete Cossaboon Episode 74, January 3, 2018

This week Andy Grant and Appio Hunter say goodbye to 2017 and welcomes in a new year with returning guest, The Angel Encourager – Pete Cossaboon. Pete is an angelic healer and motivator, and you’ll get an experience of that in this show.

Most people see their life as a series of beginnings and endings, starting over, making resolutions of things to stop or change. What is there was another way, a different perspective?

Pete brings additional guests as three Archangels (Haniel, Azrael, and Chamuel) come through and lead a potent meditation to kick off this episode.

Haniel reminds us about ebb and flow. There are no endings and beginnings – it is all flow.
Azrael gets a bad rap as the “death angel.” He helps with grief, sorrow, and letting go. People try to hang on to the known even if they don’t like it. The new is scary.
Chamuel is the angel of lost and found. Many people feel something is lost with endings. We are all connected, there is nothing to lose.

The angels are our helpers. They have no judgment.

The discussion also touches on the negative slant to resolutions, letting go with gratitude, the power of rituals and a reminder that joy is our natural state.

We are already victorious, just being born. ~Pete Cossaboon

Make A Happiness Jar
https://www.wikihow.com/Keep-a-Happiness-Jar

One of Andy’s favorite rituals or New Years or anytime:

  1. On New Year’s Day (or anytime in the first few days of the year), take out a piece of paper and write a list of everything that you want to let go of from 2017. These can include habits, behaviors, limiting beliefs, fears, physical conditions, feelings of resentment, conflicts, or thoughts that don’t serve you.
  2. Then thank all those items on that list for having been with you and for all the lessons learned and ways you grew from them.
  3. Next make a clear statement of letting go such as: I now let go of all these things and anything else that no longer serves me and my highest good as I step into a glorious 2018.
  4. Then gather around a fire in a fireplace and throw the paper in to be burned. If you don’t have a fireplace or outside fire pit, you can CAREFULLY burn it in a large stainless steel bowl.
  5. Then speak out loud everything you’re grateful for from the past year — the joys, celebrations, accomplishments, lessons learned, and “growth” experiences. Offer those into the fire to be amplified.
  6. And now it’s time to call in what you’d like to bring forward in 2018 — so speak out loud everything that you welcome into your vision of the New Year—the intentions, beliefs, behaviors, relationships and everything else that you will embrace. Offer those into the fire to ignite the new.

Real Men Feel: Episode 60, The Principles of Joy with Appio Hunter

Real Men Feel Joy

The Principles of Joy Episode 60, May 16, 2017

This week on Real Men Feel Andy Grant and Appio Hunter revisit Appio’s connection with Source Energy as he shares five universal Principles that can shape the daily experience of clarity, inner peace, self-love, and joy.

The Principles of Joy have been renamed the Tenets of Joy. They were channeled from Source, the Collective known as Samuel, that Appio works with.
Tenet – any opinion, principle, doctrine, dogma, etc., especially one held as true by members of a profession, group, or movement.

1. You are not responsible for anyone else’s happiness but your own.
2. Your human experience is your ultimate expression of joy.
3. The experience of joy is as natural as breathing.
4. Every emotion you feel is an expression of the totality of your existence.
5. When you are joyous the Universe celebrates with you.

The discussion of joy also explores joys gone too far that become addictions. Addictions result from avoidance of something, they are not true joy.
