In today’s episode Gia and Karen welcome their first guest, Dr. Larry George, who is Gia’s Dad and Karen’s husband. Dr. George is a family physician who recently retired from practice and is a student of Integral Theory, particularly the work of Ken Wilber. The trio discusses masculine and feminine energies, what happens when they are out of balance, and some ideas for getting into balance. The conversation includes:

  • The difference between male/female designations and masculine/feminine and why it’s important to understand
  • How patriarchy began for practical, survival reasons
  • That testosterone is the driver of primitive male behaviors for procreation and protection (“f*** it or kill it”)
  • How societal violence leads to fear and more violence
  • Why there is currently a clash of civilizations on the planet due to the existence of many different levels of socio-cultural evolution at the same time
  • Tips for helping male consciousness evolve and controlling testosterone-driven behaviors:
    • education
    • spiritual practice
    • nurturing relationships
  • Why higher consciousness is needed to help quell violence on the planet
  • Why compassion and forgiveness are important as we all seek to evolve (rather than blame and judgement)
  • The importance of finding our own inner balance of masculine and feminine energies
