“Fear isn’t going anywhere … so why not invite it in for tea?”

As a breathwork facilitator and men’s work coach with a passion for uplifting men, our guest Dave Weale positively understands the stories and dynamics keeping men playing small. Dave was once a top tier professional skier, until an accident upended everything. How Dave responded to the physical pain, broken dreams, and ensuing identity crisis says worlds about his character. Today he shares his top rules for transmuting fear, including how to cultivate inner safety, why clear purpose is paramount, and how authentic expression can flip stagnancy.
