“Reclaiming Male Role Models” is a podcast by Bob Schwenkler exploring:
From the country’s most inspiring men on breaking down isolation, living our deepest purpose, and creating authentically powerful relationships with self and loved ones.
This was an intense interview, and my first time speaking publicly about my relationship with my own father and it’s influence on my own life path.
From RMRM’s website:
DESTIN GEREK is a transformational empowerment coach who specializes in helping men and women awaken their sexual energy, while harnessing this newfound power to passionately manifest their biggest visions, and create the lives of their dreams. A globally recognized thought leader in the realms of sexuality, consciousness, and personal transformation, Destin has been working in the field of human sexuality for over 17 years.
In this conversation we discuss:
Healing the generational chain of anger in his family.
What leads a man to being “That creepy guy.”
The most valuable resource in his life (no, it’s not money), and how he used it to create a live workshop for 300 people from 5 continents.
Ending the battle of the sexes.
Cultivating gratitude for his father and the sacrifices dad made.
The power of sacrifice (Hint, the root of the word is “To make sacred.”)
What it takes for a man to take responsibility for his turn on (and remove women from the role of sexual gatekeeper).
Quotes from this episode:
“The connected to your heart part? The part of you that’s aware and has a sensitivity to it? Wonderful! Let’s integrate that with a real ownership of your sexual desires. Claim your sexuality, claim your desires, recognize the gift that your sexuality can be.”
“The journey of discovering what it is for me to be a man in the world, where at one time it seemed like this big overwhelming thing that I needed to address or didn’t want to address has become this thing where the more I dive into it the more I love who I become.”
