Bio by Dan:
I am a writer, wilderness guide, men's work leader, and somatic meditation teacher, and I’ve helped to instigate and lead a part of the current global men's movement. I am most comfortable in nature and I’m committed to practicing and sharing work that brings our wildness and our love out into the open. I’ve been a 3 time guest on the Joe Rogan experience, I spent substantial time as a wilderness therapy guide, an inner city high school teacher, and directed and produced over 50 episodes of the hit hunting show MeatEater. As the visionary and founder of EVRYMAN, I have led retreats, hosted a paradigm shifting podcast, and had the fortune to give talks around the world on masculinity, fatherhood, and spirituality.
