EP213: Making Sense and Meaning Out of Life with Jade Teta
I love this interview so much. It was part catch up, part exploration, part jam session with an old friend, Jade Teta. The common threads throughout each topic we covered were making sense and meaning out of ourselves, life, and the world. Jade shared why he hates the term “vulnerability” for men, and what he finds helpful instead. We talked about openness, flexibility, and perspectives on spirituality and power. He also shared some sage advice he received from his mom during a time of great suffering in his life, how he constructed his personal honor code, and the importance of creating a legacy. It was so so good. You might want to listen to it more than once. xo, E
