2 Steps to Find Meaning

babe

I’ve been having an existential crisis lately. In a good way. In a way like I am feeling complete with where I have been but am not totally sure where I am going next. I’m in the space between. This is usually an uncomfortable place for me (I have to have a plan!), but this […]

Growing and Maturing Connection

Growing and Maturing Connection

On the day that I got married, my husband and I had a ceremony in the forest before we married in front of our community. It was important to both of us that we make our bond as our true Essence Selves and we didn’t think we could do that authentically in front of other […]

Why Pain is Your Friend

Why Pain is Your Friend

We have an interesting relationship to pain in our culture. We treat it as a leper or something we do not wish for others to see or know about us. We think that pain makes us weak, and it is a nuisance. But what if pain was our friend? I read an excellent book when […]

A Check In on Forgiveness, Night Terrors and Puzzles

First of all, what’s a check in? A check in means I tell you what’s up for me and how I feel about it, it’s sort of a free flowing description of current status and location (emotionally, spiritually and physically). It felt fake to me this week to give ‘3 tips for X!’ or ‘7 […]

  If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: The single most important thing you can do for your life and your relationship with women is to stay in this present moment with your whole Self. This first foundation of Self and who you really are explains that by increasing your presence […]

You Have a Gift. Do You Want to Know What it Is?

You Have a Gift 1

In the work that I do, it is an incredible honor to witness countless men as they rediscover themselves, their true nature, and the unique gifts they have to offer to the world.

Goal Setting that Works

Christin Myrick Happy New Year

  There is a special quietness on the first days of the year. The snow is soft and fluffy and even the birds seem to be snuggled away in their nests, enjoying the calm. Around this time of year, it is natural to reflect on the past twelve months. To think about goals we have […]
