Experience: The Revolution looks at how transformational experiences like travel and festivals are shaping the next generation of leaders.
I'm going to argue that embracing unconventional means of leadership development, embracing our weirdness and curiosity, and placing ourself outside of our comfort zone in real - LIVED experiences, is the key to solving humanity's greatest challenges.
The need to seek transformative experiences is more important than ever because of the ease with which we can avoid them. The only way to be a leader in such an unknown future as this is to build self awareness through an array of experiences that allow us to develop "Phenomenal knowledge" - the knowledge of what it is like to experience something
This book will use the lense of the mythological "Hero's Journey" to understand how transformational experiences build leaders.
Luckily, the timing is perfect. Now more than ever, people are seeking experiences rather than things - they already understand that fulfillment lies on the other side of experiences.
The time for this book is NOW. Our next wave of leaders must think and be different than leaders of the last 200 years. The global social and economic systems of the industrial age have left us with a slew of unintended problems: Anxiety, depression, disengagement, for workers. Pollution, global warming, ecological collapse make our planet fragile. Famine, human migration, disease threaten billions.
If we are to solve these problems, we must solve them in entirely new ways, and it will take our leaders BECOMING a new type of leader. We hear stories about someone who went into the jungle confused and then came out and started a billion dollar company.
I'll be drawing on hundreds of interviews from the Art of Adventure - with leaders like Emily Utter, Tyler Gage, Antesa Jensen, Chase Boeringer, Estela Kun, Johan Ernst Nilson, Dave and Amy Freeman, Colin O'Brady, Sean Conway, and many more. We will distill the lessons from these people and their experiences, so you can use them in your own life as a leader.
I'll take you to some of the most dramatic transformational festivals and events from around the world: Burning Man, Bali Spirit Fest, Tony Robbin's Unleash the Power Within, Yestival, and Freedom X Fest. I'll show you how these experiences are created, curated, and delivered for maximum effect.
I'll share stories from transformative travel experiences like Adventure awake, Adventure Academy, The bucket List Lifestyle, AdventureQuest, World record setting feats of endurance, the adventure grand slam, pilgrimages, medicine journeys, and vision quests.
We will be highlighting certain leadership traits, values, big visions, and personal characteristics that directly result form these experiences.
If you are one of those people who have gone to Burning Man, Ecstatic Dance, or a new country… and said, “That was so amazing! But… I don’t know what to DO with the experience. I know it’s possible to live life differently… but what does that mean? I’m still working in a cubicle.”
This book will be your guide to become the leader that you need to become, and understanding how these experiences are shaping our future. If you are starting your heroes journey, this book will help guide you to what types of experiences might be the best for you.
This is also a call to those who have been on a long journey of transformational experiences - that it is time to step our of the wilderness and come back with your knowledge and start being a leader.
As the author, it helps that I have first hand experience. I've been traveling full time for that last 5 years on my Hero's journey. I've done things like visiting remote tribespeople, attended events like Bali Spirit Festival and Freedom X Fest, participated in plant medicine journeys with Peruvian shamans, done week long fasts and vision quests. I also practice curating these transformational experience for my clients on AdventureQuest trips.
Experience: The Revolution is the logical next book after Superconductors (2018).
Superconductors was about acquiring the skills that would make a person valuable in an unknowable future. Experience: The Revolution is about how leaders can integrate these transformational experience into their lives.
This book is for people who see things a little differently (they probably always have). They are already or want to be in a position of leadership.
Maybe They have had an experience that’s created a "positive, awakened” vision for the future that they want to see manifested. But they don’t know how to take the energy from the experience and create change in themselves, their organizations, communities, or the world.
Also for young, digitally-savvy entrepreneurs and employees. who are looking to expand their knowledge base. They may be unsure how to leave their comfort zones and acquire the experiential knowledge that will separate them from the rest of their techie-brained cohort.
I'm committed to this book becoming a global phenomenon.
