“A deep need to serve burns in the heart of every man”

Recorded around a fire while guiding fasters at our most recent Compass Vision Fast event, these 4 integral Rising Men tackle life’s most meaningful questions. How do increasingly complex systems change humanity? Why does nature based initiatory rites of passage work matter? Society has utterly failed men, and being off grid doing intentional work makes this abundantly clear. Listen in for our reflections on bringing brotherhood to every man, taking transformational work SLOW, and cutting out societal expectations!

  • [07:41] Why embodiment often gets ignored and why it’s so important.
  • [12:30] Do we need to take baby steps after huge growth points?
  • [19:01] How this type of work encourages us into deeper brotherhood.
  • [26:10] How prioritizing the long game will shift your present decisions.
  • [30:44] What are the consequences of our complex lifestyles?
  • [34:00] Does society demand an unnecessarily large percentage of our time?
  • [39:01] What does purpose driven leadership mean?
  • [43:19] How can we balance our personal desires with achieving a greater vision?
  • [48:20] What is nature based initiatory rites of passage?
  • [53:13] Is doing men’s work like planting a forest that we’ll never get to walk through?
