The Barbarian in You
“We have lying dormant in us a genetic memory. In that genetic memory there is knowledge that goes back to the ancient.” - John Trudell
Ego stuff. I graduated the U.S. Naval Academy. I played four years of college football. I served eight years in the Marine Corps. I earned a master’s degree in history. I became a bodyguard in LA. I am writing a book entitled, The Barbarian in You.
Important stuff. As I entered middle age, I noticed a mismatch between who we are (our ancient DNA) and how we live (our digital way of life). Because of this mismatch, I realized that modern men have become busier, lonelier, fatter, and in many ways, sadder, than any generation before. So I asked myself, “What can be done to reverse these ailments of modern life?” Eventually, I landed on this answer.
