This Week’s Episode:

In this episode, my guest Traver Boehm and I discuss how he uses stories to grow his movement. We explore: How he uses story to his advantage on Instagram when so many believe they can’t tell a story on social media? What makes a great story? Who’s one of his favorite storytellers of all time and why? What advice can he offer to help you become a better storyteller?

What you will learn in this episode:

  • Perseverance through pain
  • Living in the now
  • Redefine yourself

Who is Traver?

What would you do if you lost your marriage, unborn child, and business partner within weeks of each other? Traver, an author and two-time TEDx speaker confronted these issues and now teaches people to use the inevitable pain of their lives as fuel for positive change and growth. He’s a men’s coach and founder of the UNcivilized Men’s Movement. His eclectic background ranges from working as a professional bodyguard and mixed martial artist to practicing traditional Chinese medicine and meditation.

Traver sees his mission is to change the culture of masculinity worldwide. He redefines the way men experience masculinity by uniquely blending primal elements of manhood with massive doses of consciousness.

In 2016, after suffering several personal losses in a short period, he created a radical social experiment and spent a year living as if it were his last. During his time, he volunteered as a hospice worker for the dying, spent 28 days in Guatemala in complete isolation and darkness, and spent a month living in the Utah wilderness with nothing but a knife, blanket, and water bottle to keep him company.

After publishing his book Today I Rise, the influx of feedback he received from other men compelled Traver to birth the seeds of his movement. Many told him his way of thinking and living was counterintuitive to how they’ve been conditioned to act as men. Now men globally have deemed themselves UNcivilized as they wake up to meditate, feel into their hearts, and train their bodies to fight, fuck, feed, and feel well.
