Adventure Travel to Feed Your Beast, Beingness, and Brotherhood – With Jake Haupert

Jake Haupert is our guest today, and he’s here to talk about how you can use adventure travel and journeys that challenge you mentally and physically, to experience life-changing transformations and growth.

Jake is the co-founder of the Transformational Travel Council and Explorer X, and he specializes in creating unique trips and experiences that push you out of your comfort zone, and take you from simply being a passive tourist, to an explorer, fully immersed and engaged in the experience. A habit you’ll take with you when you get home.

These are trips that feed your inner beast, get you reconnected to nature, and to yourself as a man. Jake tells us stories of his own journeys, including climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro with a group of 10 friends, the challenges they faced and overcame, and the stronger bonds that were formed on that trip.

Jake also tells us how you can experience transformational travel close to home, without having to board a plane. And the power of being quiet.

Listen and learn how to “hang on to the fire” long after you return home.
