An uncivilized Journey – What does it mean to go on a journey? Is it to leave home and see a new physical place and return home with a new perspective and memories. Is it to leave your body and travel through your mind through the eyes of another as in a book, poem or movie? Is it a shared experience? Is it solitary? Is it good for you and your future? Is it bad?

Usher in Man Uncivilized.

Dr. M’s Women and Children First Podcast #22 – Michael Gay – An Uncivilized Journey Part 2

My guest this week is Michael Gay. Michael is a therapist in private practice in Boulder, Colorado. He earned his M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Naropa University with a focus in Transpersonal Psychology. Michael has worked in the field of counseling for the last 14 years as a guide, therapist, and trainer. He was a Wilderness Therapy guide for 6 years, leading and facilitating in deep transformational work with teens, adults, and families in the mountains and high desert. He has also worked extensively in the field of addiction and recovery. He specializes in work with depression, groups, trauma, PTSD, grief, and families. He currently co-creates with leaders in the field bringing men together for transformational experiences, brotherhood, healing, and empowerment. In addition to his M.A., Michael completed a 3 year training at the Gestalt Institute of the Rockies, and continues to train at the Gestalt Equine Institute.

Michael is a deep thinker. I mean deeeeeep. We dive off of the deep end of the pool discussing men’s health, therapy and living an authentic  balanced life. Discussing the realities of men and their struggles is refreshing in a world of hidden truths.

I hope that enjoy my conversation with Michael,
