Actualizing Your Potential & Sexual Intimacy with Connor Beaton
In this episode, Founder of ManTalks, Connor Beaton is here to talk about vulnerability, outdated male stereotypes and how human beings can actualize our full potential. Oh yeah, we also get into a conversation about sexual intimacy that speaks to every gender and every person regardless of your relationship status. I ask him all the hard questions about what it means to be a man in 2020 and how we as women can support men to show up as their best selves. It gets juicy.
Connor Beaton is a NY-based coach, teacher, and speaker who helps men (and women) from all over the world walk though their darkness and grow in the realms of mental clarity, relational communication, actualizing their potential and sexual intimacy.
Connor founded ManTalks in 2014 to create a community for men looking to expand and deepen their sense of self-awareness. You can now find it in over a dozen cities.
I love Connor’s no-BS attitude coupled with a voice of compassionate understanding. On a show that primarily features women, this man is breaking the mold.
Hold onto your seats…this episode is going to leave you wanting more.
