TLWL014 // Conspirituality And The Search For Meaning with Derek Beres
On today’s episode I’m joined by writer, author, podcaster, amateur mountaineer, cycling enthusiast and food culture chronicler, Derek Beres.Derek is the co-author of Conspirituality: How New Age Conspiracy Theories Became a Health Threat, and the co-host of the Conspirituality Podcast. Derek and his colleagues began exploring the topic of the rise of conspiracy theories being propagated in the yoga and wellness communities right around the time that the COVID-19 pandemic began to take hold around the world. And their work serves as a cautionary tale for those who may be seeking support in communities and alternative health modalities that may not always be what they seem.Derek’s experience as a long time yoga instructor and his colleagues’ survival of different cult communities give them a unique insider perspective on how the anti-vax movement and QAnon were able to build a groundswell of momentum and support within the alternative health and wellness world. And they shine a light on some of the main personalities pushing confusing or downright false information out to a vulnerable population.Personally, I became interested in their work due to my own desire to expand my knowledge of the subject matter and to hold myself to a high standard of integrity and intellectual rigor in my own work related to transformational embodiment and leadership coaching. I also just really love feeling like I’m sitting in on an advanced behavioral psychology class when I read or listen to these guys.So I really hope you enjoy this conversation with Derek, let’s get into it!About Derek Beres:Derek is a multi-faceted author, speaker, and media expert based in Portland, Oregon. He has served in senior editorial positions at a number of tech companies and has years of experience in health, science, and music writing.

TLWL012 // The Cultivation of Judgment-Free Creative Living with Evan Fry

TLWL012 // The Cultivation of Judgment-Free Creative Living with Evan Fry
Evan Fry and I met during the 2014 US National Cyclocross Championships in Boulder, Colorado. I was there promoting my cycling brand, Rouler, and Evan was enjoying a week of racing, industry parties and supporting all his homies. We bumped into each other on top of a hill at Valmont Bike Park where I was dressed up as a crazed rooster heckling riders as they tried to navigate a steep and slippery downhill off-camber portion of the course, and I think he was just stoked to see some weirdo having as much fun as he was having!Our conversation touches on the span of Evan’s career in the commercial creative industry and his particular affinity for leading and mentoring young creatives which ultimately led him to his most recent venture, Ideas For Animals, which marries his passion for serving up big ideas with his equally big heart and mission in the world to cultivate a judgment-free life of radical creativity.Evan’s one of those people who I have admired and been inspired by since we first met in the midst of mud, blood, beers and bike racing. And it’s a real honor to call this guy a friend.About Evan Fry:This is not one of those bios pretending to be written by someone other than the person the bio is describing. If it were, it may have started with “Evan Fry is a longtime veteran of the commercial creative industry, spending more than 12 years winning every award and learning a lot about content production at Crispin Porter + Bogusky during its heyday, and then co-running his own venture with a couple of co-founders at a startup called Victors & Spoils until it was acquired by a holding company (woo hoo!).Since 2015, Evan has been keeping his own tiny agency in the black and trying to show up in the world as a person doing more good than damage. Most recently, Evan launched Ideas for Animals, a creative shop “ideating for kindness” with open source ideas and serving animal-free clients.Evan is a longtime cyclist, animal lover, vegan coach, creative mentor and spiritual seeker. He’s been through his share of tough stuff but still sees himself as radically privileged and well-equipped for what this crazy world seems to value…” And so on. But such a 3rd-person approach would be disingenuous, because Evan is writing this himself. Just like most people do when writing their bio. Trying to be clever. Wondering if it’s too long. Or boring. But knowing it’s probably just fine. Especially because nobody but his mom will read it.You can find Evan on the internet at Ideas For Animals, Fry (his personal portfolio site) or @ideas_for_animals on the ‘Gram.The podcast streams on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

TLWL009 // Alchemizing Pain Into Purpose With Jacob Kauffman
On today’s episode I’m joined by a man who has discovered his true purpose in life by facing the trauma he experienced as a child head-on. It’s true that the greatest gifts we have to offer the world are often hidden behind a veil of the mental, emotional and psychological pain we carry throughout our lives. Often this pain originates in our youngest years and causes us to adopt behaviors and make choices that are way out of alignment with our true nature.Sadly, Jake Kauffman’s story is all too familiar as so many of us carry the weight of emotional neglect and physical or sexual abuse around and we develop stories and beliefs about ourselves in order to ensure that we never have to experience that again. These stories and beliefs serve to cut us off from our hearts, our friends and families, the world and often lead to feelings of isolation, anger, depression and much more.In his new book, Let Love In: The Pain Stops When The Truth Starts, Jake recounts the details of his incredibly painful childhood ordeal and how he chose to confront that experience in order to heal and offer himself deep love and compassion - the net result of which is him being able to trust and receive the love of others. What you’ll learn through this conversation is that when you make a conscious choice to work with your pain and trauma, the healing process is not only liberating but can provide a catalyst for creating a life beyond your wildest dreams.As heartbreaking as Jake’s story is, it’s also powerfully inspiring. It’s one that I know will resonate with many of you.So enjoy my conversation with Jake Kauffman, let’s get into it.About Jacob Kauffman:Jake Kauffman is an International Spiritual Mentor & Life Coach to purpose driven, visionary men & entrepreneurs who are seeking to grow in their life & leadership.He has supported hundreds of men to thrive and reach the next-level in all areas of life, business & relationship.His mission is to help men radically heal & transform so that they can achieve their full potential & fulfill their purpose.You can find Jake on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/iamjakekauffman/.

TLWL008 // The Complexity of Leadership With Ryan Michler
On today’s episode we get into the complexity of what it means to be a leader - especially when faced with difficult challenges that require deep reflection, realignment and commitment to purpose.Ryan Michler is a man who knows this all too well. Ryan is a combat veteran of the Iraq War, a father to 4 beautiful children and the founder of Order of Man and the Iron Council. He’s also the author of Sovereignty: The Battle For The Hearts And Minds Of Men and more recently, The Masculinity Manifesto: How A Man Establishes Influence, Credibility & Authority. Ryan has literally built his career and reputation on leading men toward lives of integrity and purpose, and yet, he is most certainly human.This conversation takes place at a time in his life when he’s navigating some really difficult and painful personal experiences that have, in a lot of ways, challenged how he’s shown up in the world. Those experiences have afforded him the opportunity to reflect on ways he can shore up his own vulnerabilities in life and to continue to learn and improve as a father, community member and leader.About Ryan:Ryan Michler is a father, Iraq Combat Veteran, and the founder of Order of Man. Ryan was raised without a permanent father figure and has seen first-hand how a lack of strong, ambitious, self-sufficient men has negatively impacted society. He believes many of the world's most complicated and challenging problems could be resolved if men dedicated themselves to becoming more capable husbands, fathers, businessmen, and community leaders.It has now become his life's mission to help men across the planet step more fully into their roles as protectors, providers, and presiders over themselves, their families, their businesses, and their communities. His podcast, Order of Man, has been downloaded over 20,000,000 times, he has a social media presence of over 500,000 men, and thousands of men have successfully completed his online and live workshops, courses, and events.
