Respect and Contempt

Episode 14

Respect and Contempt 50mins [April 28, 2021]

This month we’re talking about when relationships turn from medicine to poison with Mike Fisher and Snake Bloomstrand.

Each year millions of relationships arrive at the intersection of respect or contempt. The last few years of enforced togetherness have stressed families and businesses to the limit. It’s becoming clear as we circle the evolving post-covid recovery process that primary relationships have endured much of the stress and the price has been high. Contempt flourishes under stress and it remains a dangerous strategy to flirt with at work or at home.

Repairing Relationships

Episode 13

Repairing Relationships and Rebuilding Trust 77mins [Feb 28, 2021]

This month we’re talking about the skill of making up with with friends, lovers or colleagues after a falling out.

Psychotherapists call this ‘rupture and repair’. There is evidence to suggest that building up our talent to repair after ruptures is key to our overall sense of being able to cope with life’s struggles. It’s healthier to lean in to conflict and try to keep relationships alive while maintaining boundaries, compared to abandoning contact altogether.

But what if there are complications – like anger issues, historical hurt or gaslighting? Or maybe you’re experiencing what relationship expert Dr John Gottman calls ‘gridlock’ where there’s an unyielding impasse in communication and neither of you want to back down?

Moreover… when is it time to acknowledge that the relationship cannot continue? Join Mike, Snake and the team to find out.

Better Loving for Heterosexual Men 72mins [Feb 14, 2021]

BAAM co-founder Mike Fisher and Craig 'Snake' Bloomstrand are joined by Paul Abramowitz. Paul's the writer of a new book, Sexed.

Sexed examines heterosexual male sexuality, and proposes that we “Develop personal methods of enquiry into greater self-understanding, meaningful sex and conscious relating and that in fact , when we are able to change the way we understand perceive and embrace our sexuality as men our entire reality changes.”

Paul’s late father was a gynaecologist and sex therapist. Paul’s 14-year involvement with the men’s consciousness movement confirmed his long standing suspicion of a “Disappeared conversation around heterosexual male sexuality and its impact on our sense of self agency and overall wellbeing as men.” Paul has studied both eastern and later in western sexology, and operates a therapy space for couples and individuals working in matters of sex and intimacy, using his own model of deep transformational sex therapy detailed in Sexed.
