Quotes:

“I am such an advocate for healthy relationships to self, to others and to ideas and to our beliefs and our values actually being something of great healing potential for the planet and our collective humanity and our collective consciousness.” (5:09) 

“Understanding where I came from helped me actually stop that behavior, and redirect my energy into something that was healthy and productive and very transparent.” (18:34)

“We are in a time of great peace, we are in a time of great feminine energy actually, so adapting healthy masculine ways to be in conjunction with the world that we live in is very important.” (25:05)

“It comes down to mutual connection and mutual communication and collaboration.” (33:04)

“We can’t separate our psychology from our biology and vice versa. That is why when we speak to masculinity and femininity and male and female beyond the notion of binary gender, there is a blending that is taking place. And we are at the forefront. Where is it going? I don’t know, but I am very interested to find out that is for sure.” (40:52)
