In this important episode Rainer and his returning guest Drew explore the significance of men having a sense of mission. They clarify the difference between “mission” and “purpose” and also explore why it’s necessary for a man to experience both of these. Drew shares intimately about the challenges of securing mission, and Rainer explores how living disconnected from greater purpose has caused havoc in his own life and those of others. Besides all this they talk about Krav Maga self-defense, strength training, honor culture and relating to the divine feminine. It’s a super packed episode with lots of fun!
This is a MANTHROPOLOGY episode! Rainer gets to hang out with adventurer, pro-bro, dare-devil, “train-conductor,” father, and super-cool kid Josh. They talk about growing up with absent father’s, working with your hands, patriotism, doing the “right thing,” military mind-set versus civilian living, the softening of the American Male, motorcycles, dude’s endless schemes for getting rich, and so much more! A really fun episode. Don’t miss it.
“I’m just being authentic!” or “Just follow your heart” are conventional pop-psychological wisdom. And it’s honestly just bad advice. In this episode Rainer talks about the dangers of being reactionary, why folks who aren’t easily offended are much happier, how culture emphasizes and conditions us towards outrage, and why listening to your “gut” isn’t always effective. We also continue to explore the nature of emotions, and this time get into what the “will” actually is, and how it plays out!
