UIOK 73: Traver Boehm, Zero Fucks Living
5 days ago
This episode's guest is Traver Boehm. I first came across Traver on the Man Talks podcast and was enthralled with his conversation. Traver has always felt the call of adventure, whether that is surfing big waves, climbing mountains, or fighting in a cage. Every life has its ups and downs and Traver's was no different. He got to a point where he admits he thought he had it all, the wife, the business, the dog. All of a sudden Traver's life changed. He was overcome with pain. It was time to sit with this pain and find out who he really was. Traver had the option of getting back onto the conventional path, or taking the path of outlandish adventure. No prizes for picking which one he chose. Today's conversation is shaped around his beginnings, the trauma he went through, discovering himself and humanity through his Year to Live Project, and becoming One Day Stronger. The conversation covers; +Moving to Japan, growing up in a different culture, then the challenges of returning to the states +Looking for something more and seeking adventure +Finding out that it was all that he had dreamed of, but that he wasn't + Becoming comfortable in his own skin, and being happy with himself +The pain of loss and why you should embrace it + Understanding what hindsight is + Having wildness in his life + Eliminating distractions + Taking the opportunity when it arises rather than looking back in 10 years wondering what if? + Volunteering in hospice + Living in a pitch black room for 28 days + Doing what you need to do to be at peace +And as always becoming OK with being uncomfortable Oh and in case you didn't realise there is some explicit content in the episode Guest: Traver Boehm One Day Stronger Traver Instagram One Day Stronger Facebook TEDx talk Host: Chris Desmond UIOK Instagram
