My beloved husband Arjuna has together with Gay Hendricks, been diving deep into a process of redefining what it means to be masculine. They are exploring the conscious masculine. One important realization they came to was that in order to move on into a new paradigm of true co-creation between genders, they as men needed to speak to the past. This is what they, and many men with them, do in this video. To me this message speaks to a deep cellular layer of the collective. I find it profoundly healing.
Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is a treatment method available from behavioral psychologists and cognitive-behavioral therapists for a variety of anxiety disorders, especially obsessive–compulsive disorder and phobias . It is an example of an exposure therapy . The method is predicated on the idea that a therapeutic effect is achieved as subjects confront their fears and discontinue their escape response. [ 1 ] The behavioral process is called Pavlovian extinction or respondent extinction . [ 2 ] An example of how this process works: Imagine a person who repeatedly checks light switches to ensure they're in the off position, even when entering a clearly unlit room. The person would be exposed to their feared stimulus (leaving lights switched on), and would refuse to respond with any safety behaviors.

Perhaps a better name for the program would have been “ Man Planet,” as the show primarily chronicled the incredible feats of men around the world–men the tentacles of civilization have barely grazed. There were men mining sulfur from an active volcano; men diving dozens of feet and holding their breath for five minutes at a time to spear fish on the ocean floor; men initiating their sons into manhood by teaching them how to train eagles to hunt.
Kearneysville, WV. Recently at the University of New Hampshire, Vice President Joe Biden announced new federal guidelines for fighting sexual assault on college campuses. Biden’s speech included such truisms as “no means no” and “rape is rape is rape.” He continued:

In a recent posting I identified a list of the wrong things to say to someone who is upset. Interestingly, this led to a lot of comments on The Huffington Post , which got me thinking. The first thought I had was, "Why do men find it so hard to validate women?" Before I get into this, I'd like you to think about the research by psychologist John Gottman. Gottman has been able to predict with 91 percent accuracy which couples will end up getting divorced.
The narcissistic person is marked by a grandiose self-image, a constant need for admiration, and a general lack of empathy for others. He is the keeper of a sacred flame, which is the flame he holds to celebrate himself. There used to be theories that deep down narcissists feel unworthy, but recent research doesn’t support this.

But one thing I can attest to is that I am always trying to be better for my lady. I never forget that our relationship is something that needs to grow and change and be worked on.
