Male personal development — resources

Most of our customers are tech executives in their 25s-40s, who are interested in incorporating a more holistic approach to their lives and businesses. Many of them believe that exploring their feminine side is part of their spiritual growth. Our awarenow guides work with them to support them in their self-discovery and self-mastering journey.

To explore the concept of modern masculinity, we talked to Bryant Galindo.

Bryant is a conflict resolution expert and founder of Workplace Collaborations. He helps startups solve internal conflicts and create a culture of collaboration.

Bryant understands the importance of embracing his feminine side.

Bryant is the leader of an organization called “The Hero’s Movement.” 


He organizes retreats to address what it means to be a man by looking at different areas such as psychology, ancient wisdom, and fitness. He also told us that he has a strong feminine side, which has helped him in his work with women. You can check his interview to know more about his work.

Bryant shared with us some resources (publications, organizations, influencers) for male personal development, that can help you start your journey of self-discovery, understand how the concept of masculinity is evolving, and explore your feminine side.

We also invite you to consider booking a session with one of our awarenow guides to have some support in your exploration.
