On this episode of #mensexpleasure, I chat with Aren Bahia. Aren is a Canadian entrepreneur/philanthropist who’s lived a “full spectrum life”. From growing up in a rough area in Vancouver to spiritual development in Asia, Aren’s seen his world shift from the life of cars, cash, and women to meditation and yoga in the Himalayas where he learned to live a life of generosity, connection, and compassion. Since starting his life over in Bali in 2016, he’s launched 4 businesses in 4 years and raised tens of thousands of dollars every year for underprivileged and mentally disabled Balinese children. He’s the founder of Karma House Bali, Conscious Arts Tattoos, Full Reset Coaching and a founding partner in YogiLab. We talk about Aren’s transition from organized crime to personal development and spirituality as well as what he learned from his life as a drug dealer which translates into his work today. We also spoke about what it means to perform masculinity by wearing a metaphorical mask, including tattoos, muscles, and the “bad boy” persona.
