“I’m still tingling from my in-depth, heart-opening conversation with Boyd Varty, a true man-of-the-earth whose book, “The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Life,” I ravaged through last week in eager anticipation of this recording.
Boyd Varty grew up on the verdant plains of a South African safari, within touching distance of the epic wildlife most of us only catch glimpses of on 2D screens. As a lion tracker, Boyd has studied the movements and mindset of the animal kingdom in a way I have never encountered before. He’s articulately folded the truths from the bush into the human experience, using his background to explore trauma – both for himself and as a facilitator for others – in sacred ceremonies.
Medicine flows through this man, and this raw, meaty, wild ride of an episode is as enlightening as it is emotional. ” ~ Luke Storey
#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.
