The Stogie Chronicles: An Evening At The Carnegie Club

When I sent out a bat call for Mastermind Connect members to join me for The Stogie Chronicles Scotch and Cigars series I’m doing for the Cigar Casa project, our members answered the call at the ready!

The Spiritual Write Up

The Mastermind Connect hosted the 2nd edition of The EleMENtal Project series titled “Spiritual Warrior.” Besides moderating an all star panel, we had the privilege of using the New Inc space at the Bowery, NYC.

The fact that just a day after my return to New York, I was driving through the affluent neighborhoods of the Hamptons to teach a class, was an incredible cultural juxtaposition. A week after being back, I’m still processing the experience on multiple levels.

Namaste Bruh or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The ROM

Culturally, men have been socialized to focus on strength, and the various ways which this can be expressed in the gym. Very rarely is there an emphasis on flexibility and/or range of motion (“ROM”).
