This week’s show is with Darren Deojee, Darren is all about bringing Positive Masculinity your way. He is firmly rooted in the Oral Tradition and the Toltec Mysteries and their irreplaceable power to bring transformation, realisation and connection. With 10 years teaching, and over 20 years practical experience in Toltec Gender and the Art of Spelling and Sound, his approach has transformed the relationships, perspective and personal power of thousands over the years.
He calls his work Mental Healing to tackle a western pandemic he refers to as ‘mental disembodiment’ and return us to our indigenous nature of Integral Mind and embodied language.
Darren lives in Suffolk, England, is in a committed long term relationship, and has 4 children.
This week’s show is exploring how we can navigate this gender-confused world. We talked about what we know of gender and sex when it comes to human history, how we’ve arrived at our current controversy and confusion, and the challenges that come with it, and lastly: what we can do to navigate this terrain for ourselves, our communities and our families.
Both Darren and I were aware that this is both a very sensitive topic and also one that we feel is so important for us all to be able to discuss openly. We did our best to speak with our hearts wide open, conscious of the actual human beings with lived experiences that our words might affect.
Ultimately, we both share a pure intention to help create and cultivate a world where open conversations on this topic are happening everywhere, and we’re willing to risk any heat arising from this episode if it goes some way to achieve that aim.
If we as humans are to live free, connected and meaningful lives that truly honours our differences – there doesn’t seem like there’s another way than us being able to talk openly and honestly about the things that matter.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- We can see looking throughout history and across the world, that we predominately have two sexes with a range of expressions, it’s only more recently that we’re codifying those expressions as being different genders, which we then attribute greater meaning to.
- This current gender confusion comes about through children looking around them to see how gender is expressed and then lacking discernment when it comes to making meaning (which is natural at that stage of development) and then disowning or disindentifying with their core gender power as a result.
- Keep talking and questioning – we can do that openly, lovingly and in a ways that is accepting those who are different to us without letting their narrative become the only and central narrative.
- Our dharma is rooted in our bodies and our sex… we cant actualise our unique potential if we’re avoiding or dishonouring this important aspect of our embodiment in this lifetime.
