 About us

A Podcast for People Who Want More from Life

The Path to Authenticity starts from the assertion that we wrest our true power from our individuality.

Real conversations with real people.

We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait.

They’re people who know who they are.

We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.

The Passing of Robert Bly

In 2006, I attended a men’s conference, representing a small facility for recovering men I helped create. At the time, the place was still relatively new. We had a booth, and I spent nearly the entire time manning it to promote our little program. Meanwhile, Robert Bly was the keynote speaker. Because he was scheduled to do a book signing one afternoon, I bought a copy of “Iron John,” having no idea what impact it would eventually have on my life. Seeing this tall and regal, yet salty old man walk into the room, I was immediately curious about the buckskin vest he wore over a shirt I can’t...
