Stefanos Sifandos: Transcending Toxic Masculinity
I first connected with Stef through social media, feeling a strong resonance with his work and his message.
In this conversation, we cover a lot of ground - from Stef's background and coming into the work of human transformation to what is means to be a man in this world.
While a lot of the conversation was about what masculinity means in our world, this information transcends gender and social norms to discuss for purely these divine energies that manifest in our world.
I particularly appreciated when the topic of "toxic masculinity" came up, which provided an opportunity for Stef to express and clarify some popular misconceptions.
Some other take aways include...
What masculinity truly means
How masculine energy gets confused with dominance and violence
Relationships are everything in life
How living into our fullest potential means integrating divine masculinity and femininity
