In our interview with Dan Doty, we discuss the therapeutic benefits of nature, the importance of healing old wounds, and the power of presence. We also explore why society has taught us all—but particularly men—to use repression as a coping tactic.
Our biggest takeaway? Hurt people hurt others. Trauma shapes who we are, how we react to situations, and even the way our genes express themselves. The good news? People who work on *healing* themselves then have the ability to help others heal others.
