# 30 Man to Man: What you Need to Know About Joining a Men's Group, with Mikaal Bates

If you’re a conscious man looking for the next level of your evolution, a men’s group is the answer.  Fellow men’s coach Mikaal Bates & I examine the power of these groups, how this age-old tradition of men supporting each other elevates every aspect of ourselves and why it’s worth protecting. 

Find out how to get the best out of a men’s group, plus: 

  • Why the lone wolf mentality doesn’t serve you.
  • The value of joining a men’s group & what it means to be truly seen, including the positive effect on your mental health.
  • Examining the impact of postmodernism on the family and how it's affected all men.
  • Unpacking the fundamental question, “What does it mean to be a man?”.
  • The importance of having a rite of passage into manhood & how to create them for yourself and young men.
  • How to not turn your partner into your therapist, including which problems you should stop taking to them.
  • How to break out of being a “people-pleaser” & how this will improve all your relationships.
  • Using polarity mapping to navigate imbalances for a more integrated self.
  • Preparing for life's unforeseen hardships with the “Morning STACK”.

Mikaal is an OG when it comes to men's work, and this episode is must-listen for those looking to show up fully integrated and fully in their power.
