traver boehmWould you consider sitting in complete darkness for 30 days? Or spending time with people who have less than six months to live?

Today I’m talking with my new friend, Traver Boehm. Traver is an author, speaker, men’s coach, and founder of Man Uncivilized. After experiencing a series of extreme losses in his life, Traver went on an unconventional journey of self-discovery.

In this episode, we’ll talk about Traver’s experiences including time spent in isolation and time volunteering at a Hospice. And we’ll also learn what he’s discovered along the way about being a man.
