In this episode, I talk about adapting to change, setting boundaries, and valuing self in relationships. I explore the concept of self-worth detached from external validation and the importance of authenticity in relationships. I also speak about the process of confronting past traumas, the power of conversational role-play, and how to navigate grief and guilt as it arises. Join me as we get real about ourselves and our relationships in order to move towards healthier connections. Get the full recording at markgroves.com/2024
This espresso shot solo episode is an excerpt from my recent Masterclass: 2024: Your Breakthrough Year. In this episode, I explore the transformative power of initiations, guided by insights from Francis Weller and James Hillman. I talk about the three parts of initiation: severance from the world you once knew, radical alteration to your sense of identity, and inability to go back to the world you knew. I also discuss the power of community during these personal transformations, the importance of prioritizing our instincts as well as alchemizing our knowledge into action. This episode is an invitation to align our actions and remember that true transformation comes from within. Get the full recording at markgroves.com/2024
Sometimes, we find ourselves burning bridges because we lack the skills or confidence to walk away or choose ourselves. It’s a form of self-sabotage, where we consciously or unconsciously avoid reaching out or following through on opportunities that could lead to personal growth. But what if we built bridges instead of burned them? We must embrace change and actively pursue personal growth. Trusting ourselves and accepting our truths is key to creating meaningful change. Let’s build some bridges.
In this heartfelt episode, I sit down with power couple Rainier Wylde and Kristi Born as they share the intimate details of how their relationship has evolved through infidelity. We discuss relational pain as a potent catalyst for transformation, the beauty in being honest with ourselves and our partner, and viewing ruptures as an invitation to truth.
