Conversation highlights:

  • We talk about modern day masculinity and Dan shared some tough truths about the 'old blueprint of masculinity' - he paints a picture of middle-aged mediocrity with men, especially between the ages of 40-59, at a crossroads
  • The old definition of masculinity was founded in professional success. We look at how it has affected the generations since the great wars, and how it has changed since the rise of the 'baby boomers'
  • Dan highlights that everyone has both masculine and feminine energies, and our gender conditioning highlights how boys growing up are taught how to "man up" and "boys don't cry"
  • Towards the end of our chat, Dan shares three questions he would ask anyone feeling stuck - these questions are gold!
