Yang Town’s Design Now Available as a Print

Friday, February 6th, 2009

So ever since Yang Town launched I've been receiving many compliments about the blog's design, specifically the header (some people have even asked if they could buy prints). 

I've been a big fan of the many incredibly talented digital artists over at the community, (in fact the Yang Town design was inspired by a dozen or so of various deviant art peices), so it only made sense to submit Yang Town as a new deviation (a deviant art creation) and make it available as a print.  

This means you can purchase a print of the Yang Town header design through and have it framed if you like as well.  

I've been intending to do this for and finally got around to printing one for myself to see the quality, and also to anchor the energy of Yang Town in my room.

You can view print here.  There are many sizes available, ranging from small postcard size prints to large 20 x 30 inch prints.  The quality is amazing, especially if you order what's called "Lustre" (Simply click on the word 'Matte' to change between Matte, Glossy, and Lustre). 

Lustre is a new printing technology described like this:

"Lustre is wonderful for both, capturing the best qualities from Glossy and Matte and combining them into one beautiful finish. The Lustre finish has more saturated inks which can sometimes result in a darker image. The quality this finish adds to your artwork is beyond description. You must see it to believe it!"

Check out the pics below to give you a size of the scale (the pic below is the 20×30 print w/ frame):

Having the print serves as a reminder of the Yang Town Mission of developing masculine power, emotional strength, a sense of purpose, personal integrity, and an open heart.

If you like the design, you will appreciate the quality up close (it looks really good).  So once again, here is the link to buy the Yang Town Print.

I would also encourage you to checkout all the amazing artwork at, there are tons of incredibly innovative and provocative creations.

Yang Town 1-Year Anniversary and Update

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

You may have noticed that Yang Town recently turned 1 year old a few months back (in August).  So…to celebrate, I've decided to…delete some of my most popular old posts 🙂

Basically, I am going through all old articles (and the revive your sex drive ebook) and sort of updating the energy so that it resonates closer to where I am currently at and where we are headed.

I also removed all guest posts, simply so that I can maintain a singular focus of energy across all published material.

I am dedicated to providing you with the very best energy that I have available, yet at the same time, I want to share life's lessons as I learn them in all their imperfect glory.

So it's a bit of a balancing act.

Anyway, We've come a long way in the last year. 

From August 2007 – August 2008, Yang Town has had:

  • 53,234 Visits
  • 117,791 Pageviews
  • 1,413 Email Subscribers

Not too shabby…as for an update on the blog:

We all go through rhythms and cycles in our life.

When we are in a yang cycle, we are expanding, teaching, and giving.  When we are in a yin cycle, we are nuturing, learning, and receiving. 

At the moment, many of us, (myself included), are going through a yin cycle where we can heal; heal our financial systems, our career paths, and ourselves.

It is in these yin cycles that it appears like nothing is happening (except perhaps chaos) but this is the stage where a lot of energy is shifting beneath the surface; we are becoming clear about what we truly want in our life (and what we don't want).

This is the time to go inward and rearrange our relationships, our surroundings, and our life, from the inside out.

These past 6 months I have been doing just that and I have some incredible content that I am still in the process of learning, integrating, and putting together.

During this time, I have been fortunate to have found an incredible spiritual teacher and friend with whom I will introduce you to in the near future.

In the meantime, study the resources and posts presented here as well as the value online products such as the Try It On Everything EFT Documentary (& Free Bonuses), and the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) products.

If you have a pressing spiritual or emotional-related question, feel free to post it in the comments section (or contact page) and I'll do my best to respond with valuable insights to assist you.  

Thanks for your support and readership.

We Are All One: A Guide to Enlightened Living

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

Ariel Bravy We are all one guide to enlightenment

I'm excited to announce the publication of a new blog by my friend and fellow spiritual truth seeker, Ariel Bravy, called "We Are All One: A Guide to Enlightened Living."

Ariel wrote a few articles here on Yang Town a while back (now they are only available on his site), both of which contain some powerful and useful truths.

Ariel is one of the few guys that I know that is really tapped in to universal source energy.  He is a dedicated meditator, a fellow student of Abraham's teachings, and embodies the power of allowing and unconditional love in everything he does.

He's been writing articles for some time before the launch so the blog features loads of great content.  He keys in on topics such as transcending the ego, manifestation, meditation, emotional strength, surrendering, and much more. 

I highly recommend checking it out.

Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Resources to Assist You on the Spiritual Path

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Many people are becoming aware of how important it is to be aware of the what kind of energy we allow into our lives, especially when we are on the path of spiritual growth.  

It's easy to flick on the tv and see a barrage of low vibing shows and ego driven media coverage.  

It's like Jack Johnson says, "Where'd all the good people go?" 

Well, hopefully I can share with you a few high vibing sources of wisdom for you on your journey inward.  

I just finished adding a new resources section to the blog.  It contains reviews and links to the teachers, books, programs, and even music that have helped me the most during the past couple years.

Just click on the button at the top menu to view the resources.  I'll be adding more as I find them too.  

7 Great Blogs on Spiritual and Personal Growth

Friday, February 8th, 2008

Hey guys, I only like to write when I feel bursts of inspiration on some topic since this allows me to write about a powerful idea in the simplest way possible. 

Lately I've had a lot of little bursts but nothing big enough for a post.  So in the mean time, here are some great blogs to check out written by some blogger friends of mine:

1) Urban Monk – This blog, by my friend Albert, is very well written and maintained and it's got a very nice clean design.  Topics include ego, compassion, emotional mastery, visualization, gratitude, and many other spiritual and personal development concepts.  Highly recommended.

2) Life In Progress Sciences – You may have noticed Bart adding some of the best content to Yang Town's articles through his comments here.  He writes his own blog on topics such as abundance, masculinity, organic pick up, and more.  Give it a look.

3) Just Keep the Change – In his blog, Alex focuses on "Making Men Better" through weekly articles about dating, happiness, fitness and sex.  One great thing about this blog is that it's packed with good solid content without much else to distract you.  Good stuff.

4) Always Embrace All Ways – Sue Anne shares her wisdom, as she does with her comments here, through her own blog on topics such as consciousness, philosophy, psychology, spirituality, energy and more.  Her articles are filled with heart and backed with experience which lead to some very interesting posts. 

5) Well Being and Health – Another friend of mine, Evan, writes a blog on "All aspects of wellbeing and health: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and social."  What's interesting about Evan is he was raised as Evangelical Christian but later in life came to many realizations about thoughts, emotions, compassion and more.

6) Lifestyle Transformations – I recently talked with Stefan, one of the coaches for Lifestyle Transformations – a company that "empowers men to maximize their potential, to live life on their terms, and to develop themselves into confident, social, and attractive men" through workshops in Vancouver.  I like his approach, as it serves as a good bridge between seduction/pick up and personal development.

7) Whole Living Today – Tania, a Reiki master and practitioner, blogs about "an eclectic blend of spirituality, quotes & poems, lessons I’ve learned."  Just visiting the blog and reading through the posts, I get a peaceful feeling.  Definitely worth a look.

Let me know if you find any particularly enjoyable. 

Documentary on the Crisis of Masculinity in the Media

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Tough Guise is documentary that discusses the links between violence in the media and society’s idea of masculinity.

Although the film is a bit dated, the problems discussed still ring true  about the trouble that men are experiencing in understanding their own masculinity.

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

Jackson Katz, who describes himeself as “one of America’s leading anti-sexist male activists,” talks about the idea of a “tough guise” that men put on as a mask to hide their deeper vulnerabilities and emotions.

The film discusses how this idea came about and how masculinity is often portrayed in the media as physical and mental strength, power over others, and violence while traits such as vulnerability, emotion, and compassion are seen as weak and unmanly.

While its true that that many men misunderstand these ideas about masculinity, I don’t think we can just place all the blame on the media as the root cause of this “crisis” (although it definitely perpetuates the “tough guise”), but rather, the media is a response to something else, mainly a lack of authentic and mature masculine power.

The documentary spends about a good amount of time discussing the areas where masculinity is distorted in the media, then spends only the last few minutes talking about ways to improve the situation.

Although this film probably does accomplish a lot as far as improving our awareness as men, it does not give a clear direction as to where to go next.  That is pretty much where the “tough guys” find themselves in their own life; not sure where to go next or how to really be a man.

This film was definitely spot-on in describing the problems men face and is enjoyable to watch.  All in all, it will improve your awareness of the situation and is a good first step out of the old view of the macho man.

A good next step for many men, may be to get in touch with their authentic self through their own Wild man and Warrior.  Robert Bly goes into depth on this, in his Iron John story and in the Documentary “A Gathering of Men.”

Video on the Making of Yang Town’s Illustration & Design

Friday, November 30th, 2007

I keep hearing such great feedback on my blog's design which I greatly appreciate.

Many of you ask me how I made the blog and if I designed it myself, so I decided to create this short video showing you exactly how I created Yang Town from a simple sketch as well as a little history on how my blog started. 

Feel free to post any comments about the video or questions about the Elance outsourcing process.  Enjoy!

New Site is Up: This Blog is now Yang Town

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

Hey guys, thanks for your patience, I know it was quite a long time though don't worry, it's been worth the wait.  So what is Yang Town and how is it different my old blog?  Yang Town is a blog for men centered around spirituality and self-improvement. 

Topics of interest include chakras, meditation, healing energy, psychology, women, relationships, and masculine embodiment.  The word ‘Yang’ comes from Yin & Yang in which Yin is feminine and Yang is masculine.  Have you taken the Yang Town Journey Yet?  If not click here, then come back to this post.

I envisioned the site design back in January of this year after much meditation.  As soon as I had the idea, I grabbed my notebook and sketched out the concept.  I'm not much of a digital graphic artist, so after the initial sketch, I searched for a high quality illustrator and eventually found a design company from Argentina to help make my vision a reality.

Around this time I began to distance myself from my old blog, dewussified.  I just could not bring myself to post with much passion like before.  It's as if the site was no longer home to me; I just didn't resonate with it anymore.  I looked at the old site in a completely different way. 

To evolve, one should move away from what they don't want and move consciously towards what they want.  You've probably heard this as the law of attraction. 

How have I made this jump in consciousness?  I've radically changed alot of things, everything from the way I eat, my lifestyle, my friends, learning ways to let go of pain and to heal my energy, and especially how to quiet my mind.  There is so much that I've learned in the past year that it will take many upcoming posts to share them all with you. 

So you can expect to see some incredible topics ahead and some really far out ideas.  I'd like to ask that you suspend your beliefs and judgments for a little while and try out a lot of the ideas I put forth.  Most of them can't be understood by the mind, they have to be experienced.

Thanks for sticking with me this far and I wish you the best on your own path.

Digitizing the mind….

[*Update 4-6-2008* Nearly all posts from here until late August 2008 have been removed.  They served myself and others at one point but now I am choosing to improve the level of consciousness of this blog.]

I have surrendered to translating my revelations into digital characters….the following posts from here on out will follow my quest for spiritual enlightenment and the ever pervading question that men ask of themselves…I welcome any praise, disagreements, guidance, or kudos…Welcome
