SLO MO REWIND: Dr. Jed Diamond on the 5 Stages of Lasting Love
Show Notes

Continuing our love and relationships series, we revisit my chat with the wonderful Dr. Jed Diamond.

Jed is the founder and director of MenAlive, a health program that helps men, and the women who love them, to live fully, love deeply, and make a positive difference in the world. He is one of the world’s leading experts in the field of gender-specific medicine, men’s health, and trauma recovery. His training programs on The 5 Stages of Love have been taken by men and women throughout the world.

Jed has written 16 books, including international best-sellers Male Menopause, Surviving Male Menopause, The Warrior’s Journey Home: Healing Men, Healing the Planet, and The Irritable Male Syndrome. His most recent books are 12 Rules for Good Men and Survive and Thrive in the Post-COVID World.

I'm so grateful to Jed, who has written multiple articles featuring some of my work alongside his own brilliant work and writing. I was so excited to get a chance to chat with him, and I'm certain this will be an eye-opener for you.

Listen as we discuss:

  • A dive into Jed's past and how he found his creative side.
  • Why he committed his life to understanding the world of men and women.
  • Why do men often become angry and irritable?
  • What is Male Menopause and Irritable Male Syndrome?
  • Our past marriages and the importance of knowing the 5 stages of love.
  • Why disillusionment is a precursor to real, lasting love.
  • Understanding the ancient reality of the male and female division.
  • Breaking out of the "man box" and the 12 rules for good men.
  • Jed's one core piece of advice for men.
