Man Alive

Mar 25, 2021

When you hear the word "Manhood," what do you think?

It may have a sense of power for you. It may seem suffocating or stifling. It may even be both at the same time.

Today's Man Alive podcast guest, Ilan Ferdman has done deep work and exploration around who he is beyond cultural constructs. He has even explored the Divine Masculine and shares his experiences of what it is and how it has impacted his life. 

Ilan understands that you are programmed into manhood and masculinity from the time you're born. The pressures and limitations are so much a part of "the water we swim in," it can be really hard to see or know where they come from.

Ilan is the co-founder of Satori Prime, a personal development, leadership and spiritual growth organization that has served more than 15,000 people with digital products, community events, coaching and corporate trainings. He is also co-host of the Old Souls and Seekers podcast, which blends life coaching, psychology, neuroscience, intuitive guidance and ancient energetic wisdom practices.

In our conversation we discussed:

  • A process for working with catastrophic thoughts and fear of failure 
  • How to release the pressure of being the "rock" and provider, the one who holds it all on your shoulders
  • The benefit of slowing down to become even more effective
  • How to integrate masculine and feminine energies and what the divine masculine is 
  • Ilan's story of losing it all and the gifts that resulted from finally getting honest
