Did you enjoy the episode?
Dale is a man who clearly cares about the well being of his fellow men. He introduced us to three exercises, two of which have become a couple of my favorites – the 80 year old self interview, and the 7 words for your friends: “Your friendship means a lot to me”. Powerful stuff… which exercises or aspects of masculinity resonated with you the most? Please share in the comments section below as I’d love to hear from you.
