A few months back a woman shared a video in the Untame Yourself Facebook group with one line of description, "THIS IS INCREDIBLE." The video is titled, "What Men Are Craving" and it's a talk given by someone I'd met before - John Wineland. The conversation that erupted in the comments on that post was so interesting. From oooohing and ahhhing to getting really triggered, it was clear this conversation was a hot one. So I invited John on the show to dig deeper into what he covered in the video and to be honest, challenge him a bit on some of the things that I personally felt were a "bit much" myself. What ensued is a gorgeous conversation where I cried at least once. This is a savorer - enjoy!
About John Wineland:
For the better part of a decade, John Wineland, an LA-based men's group facilitator, speaker and teacher has been guiding both men and women in the realms of life purpose, relational communication, sexual intimacy and embodiment.
Known for his groundbreaking work with men, John travels world-wide teaching his vision of embodied men's work and deep relational practice. In 2014, he founded The New Men’s Work Project, which has attracted men from around the world looking to develop as leaders in their relationships and communities.

John has studied and assisted with some of the world's leading spiritual, tantric and relational teachers; and he brings this multi-faceted approach, which is both energetic and highly practical, to his workshops and experiential coaching sessions. John's embodiment driven teaching draws from not only over 30 years experience of his own Buddhist meditative practice, but from the deep lineages of Vajrayana, Tantra, and Kundalini yoga; as well as the Taoist traditions of Iron Shirt Qi-Gong, to create a profound experience for men and women longing to express their deepest desires with open, fierce and loving hearts.
