60: Aubert Bastiat: Becoming a Father, Sacred Sons, and How To Make Peace With Your Past

by neeta bhushan


Hey, Brave Table fam, welcome back. You all know one of my favorite topics is examining the effects of our family lineage, especially when it comes to growing up in Asian immigrant families. As a mama, it’s more crucial than ever for me to know I’m doing all I can to heal my past and my family traumas. And, I know it’s something you all value, too. When we heal the experiences we’ve been through with our families, we pave the way for a better future for ourselves AND the offspring we birth into this world. 

I have a powerful episode for you today about healing family wounds with my dear pal and fellow child of mixed cultures (American & Asian), Aubert Bastiat. Aubert is a healer, male mentor, and founder of Sacred Sons — a community for masculine alchemy and embodiment. If you are looking to reconcile challenging experiences from your past, this is the episode for you. 

We get into… 

– The ego death experience and how it differs for men

– The power of prayer and finding your connection to God

– How parental relationship dynamics create a blueprint for how we perceive life

– Surrendering to your ego & healing family traumas through your environment 

– The sneaky ways addiction can show up in our lives

– Reclaiming your sovereignty and power from your family 

– Making peace with your past and reframing your situation to align with your highest self

– And LOTS more.
