John Wineland: Your Guide To Masculine & Feminine Polarity

“What does it mean to lead from a place of healthy, sacred masculine energy? Men are hungry for that answer and there’s a momentum-shifting as we see more participation in men's groups. They naturally have this mechanism for delivering depth; they’re like a portal to the Divine.” – John Wineland

Power Quotes From The Show

Expressing Our Love & Consciousness

“I don't need to change anything to be consciousness and love, I just am. So are you; so is any human being. At our core, the feminine in us is love; infinite, unchanging love and at our core, consciousness. I don't need to change anything; however, if I want my love or consciousness to be felt in the world, I have to open my body through breath, relaxation, posture, or movement.”  – John Wineland

Emotional Intelligence Is An Awareness Practice

“Emotional intelligence is really just an awareness practice. It means to be aware that there are sensations in the body that may have feelings. There may be grief, anxiety, or love. We tend to think of intelligence as something you either have or don't but awareness is something that can absolutely be trained and sharpened. So, we all have the capacity to become more emotionally aware both of ourselves and of the people that we're with if we pay attention and get out of our own minds.” – John Wineland

Reaching A Certain Level Of Detachment

“Even with the deepest emotional intelligence, we could still experience great trauma and pain. There's a certain level of detachment from form that is key to my masculine practice. The real masculine capacity, for men or women, within all of us is an awareness of form without an attachment to form. Family, friends, or things like money come into our lives and then they leave. This moment comes and goes. So, part of my depth, I would hope, is my ability to not get attached to any of it so that I am more aware and can stay in that zone.” – John Wineland
