The Pursuit of Enhancement Podcast
Welcome back to The Pursuit of Enhancement Podcast.
My name is Peter Ledwidge and I am your host.
Each week I sit down to talk in-depth with guests that push the boundaries of conventional living, driven by the singular pursuit of being on an unrelenting quest to continually expand the horizons of their body, mind and spirit.
The aim is to learn more about them and from them; their story, the work they are doing, the highs, the lows, the triumphs, the heartaches and everything in between.
I hope that through these stories you will find the courage to go out and push your own boundaries, whatever that may look like to you. Your story has just as much value as any guest on this podcast.
This week I’m grateful to be joined from California by Jeddy Azuma – creator of The Rising Man Movement and host of The Rising Man Podcast
Millions of men feel a deep yearning to serve but don’t know how to start. Through his work, Jeddy offers his wisdom on hearing the subtle messages and tapping into our highest vision.
Open relating and transparent sharing are essential elements to the Rising Man Movement. Finding the courage to communicate our deepest desires, fears, and emotions often leads to huge breakthroughs.
Jeddy has been deeply involved in this area of men’s work for over a decade and I’m delighted to get the chance to glean some wisdom from him, to find out more about him and his work.
In our conversation we talk about
- What is men’s work
- Initiation from boyhood to manhood
- His journey through repression of self, substance abuse
- Elder mentorship
- Vision quest – indigenous practices, rights of passage
- The phases of rights of passage
- Breaking generational cycles and reconciling relationships
- His core parenting values to raise conscious children
I loved this discussion with Jeddy. What really stood out for me is the need and importance of this kind of work in our world today. It doesn’t matter whether you’re male or female, or however you associate, there is huge value in all of us breaking free from our unconscious patterns to live more in alignment with our higher selves. If each of us takes on that responsbility, it will raise the collective vibration. Through that we will see cultural and societal shifts. It goes back to the age old saying, if you want the world to change you have to first change yourself.
Let me know what stood out for you. I’d love it so much if you could leave me a review for the podcast on whatever platform you’re listening. Go! Do it now! Find that review between, leave me a little rating and your thoughts. I’d love to know what you think.
