Sean Stephenson, Three foot giant

posted by Eivind on November 14, 2009, at 11:01 pm

Sean Stephenson is a name that seems to be popping up more and more on the many mailing lists that I subscribe to. He is an inspirational force of personal development, a towering only three feet.

You may already have heard of him, but since he is asking for help in telling the world about his new TV show Three Foot Giant (he thinks he can really get through to a lot of people who are shortchanging themselves in life), I thought I'd grant his wish. He is definitely worth your time.

So, the TV Show, again, is Three Foot Giant, and below is the trailer.

Learn passion from Alex Allman

I just purchased the course "Passionate Lover, Passionate Life" from Alex Allman. Looking at his webpage now, it seems to be sold out, but I still think it's worth telling you about this guy. It's rare that I hands down intuitively trust a man, but I trust Alex and I think his message is incredibly powerful.

I'm sure the course will be relaunched soon, but in the meantime, check out these videos from youtube. I really enjoy the way he exposes the immaturity prevalent in the pick up movement. This is something I've been thinking for a long time (in fact, my take is that most pick up artists are processing some serious mommy & daddy issues), and it is timely to see another deep and powerful guy state the same thing.

Check it out. About 45 minutes total. Totally worth it!

Note: For the one who is in a hurry, start with video #3 (and skip all the addressing of the pickup community)

Parts 2-4 (videos open in new window)

Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

This dude is a serious inspiration. He reminds me of some amazing kids I met in india.

So what's your excuse?

Must see video with Robert Bly and Bill Moyers

For those of you who are paying attention, Robert Bly is one of my main sources of inspiration. You NEED to check out this video if you are serious about your growth as a man.

It's 90 minutes long, but totally worth it.

Seeking initiation in Oregon

posted by Eivind on September 27, 2009, at 10:56 pm

Over the last year or so, I have been writing several movie reviews where I have emphasized the importance of initiation. I think the lack of initiatory rites for men in our culture is the main reason why so many men have problems finding their place in life and living from a place of authenticity and power.

In one week only, I travel to Oregon to meet my personal mentor for the first timel. It has been quite a journey even getting to this point, and I look forward to it with. At the same time, I feel like I'm jumping into a huge unknown where anything can happen. Of course it is a little scary.

This event is huge and marks a milestone in my life. It's also something I've had to do to stay in integrity with all my proselytizing on this site about the importance of said rites. Integrity is getting to be incredibly important in my life. So I just want to thank you all for holding me accountable. I will get back to you when I return to Norway on October 12.

I think I'm in for the ride of my life.
