I was recently interviewed for this unique podcast hosted by Brilliant Miller, who has an incredibly fun, fresh style. He started the School for Good Living to help everyone live more fulfilling and joyful lives. In our discussion we explored my books and some encounters from my time as a tracker, as well as what it means to live a good life. We also talk about what it took to get my books written and my tips for future writers!
#152 HOW TO FIND YOUR LIFE TRACK WITH BOYD VARTY
Thank you Mark Leruste from The Unconventionalists – and for your words below:
“There’s nothing more healing than finding your gift and sharing it.” – Boyd Varty
Since childhood, Boyd Varty shared his home with lions, leopards, snakes, and elephants and has spent his life in apprenticeship to the wisdom of nature.
Boyd survived a harrowing black mamba encounter, a debilitating bout with malaria, even a vicious crocodile attack, but his biggest challenge was a personal crisis of purpose.
As a university student, he studied psychology and ecology, supplementing his education by learning martial arts in Thailand, hiking through the jungles of the Amazon, and apprenticing to a renowned tracker from the Shangaan tribe deepening his intimate knowledge of the natural world. Boyd grew up speaking the local language and learning the true meaning of coexistence between people and with nature.
Today, Boyd has a psychology degree from the University of South Africa, is a certified Master Life Coach, is the author of two books, a TED speaker and has taught his philosophy of “Tracking your Life” to companies and individuals all over the world.
He has since been featured in the New York Times and NBC.
I can’t wait to read your comments over on social media (@markleruste) and hear what golden nuggets you got out of our powerful conversation.
Be true, be brave, be kind. And let it rip.
Fan favorite lion tracker, Boyd Varty, is back with us and diving into the “art” of suffering – a self-inflicted phenomenon.
It’s safe to say that we’ve all suffered one time or another, but oftentimes people remain in the drama-filled stories that they, themselves, have created. I know I have. With this, the suffering doesn’t end… it only replicates. In this episode, Boyd breaks down a few of his own stories of suffering and his discoveries from the untrue stories that he placed atop the kind reality.
