Long Bio

Traver Boehm

Traver Boehm’s goal is to end the suffering in men — in order to end the suffering caused by men. He is dedicated to understanding how men think, what’s behind their behavior, and most importantly — their unique challenges in the modern landscape.

In 2016 after losing a pregnancy, his marriage, and his business partnership all within weeks of each other, he created a radical year-long social experiment to answer the question, “Who am I as a man?” During that year, he lived alone in a pitch black room for a month, sat among men nearing the end of their lives in hospice, and called all of his exes to ask where he was deficient as a man. It is also when he realized that he might be able to help other men answer the question for themselves, “Who am I as a man?”

Traver is the the founder of the UNcivilized Men’s Movement, the fastest growing men’s movement in the world. He is the author of Today I Rise and Man UNcivilized as well as a two-time TEDx speaker, men’s coach and podcaster.

Drawing upon an eclectic background ranging from professional bodyguard and Mixed Martial Arts to a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and meditation, he’s helped men all over the world to become UNcivilized as they wake up to the power of their hearts, the brilliance of their bodies, and the wisdom of their souls so they can blaze their own path. He does this through one-on-one coaching with men or women, couples coaching, and group mentorship.

What is UNcivilized?

Traver working out at the gym

The UNcivilized Man...

Is Unapologetically Male.  Dangerous but not a danger.  Makes still his mind, makes savage his body. Knows his gifts grow in the garden of his wounds. Practices presence and performance.  Honors the men before him, the women who bore him, and the children who will inherit his Earth. Has equal and easy access to his head, heart, and balls. Lives, by the rule — there are no rules — but there is responsibility. Loves fiercely, openly, and without reservation. Knows strength without love is tyranny. Knows love without strength is victimhood.

Chris and Traver talk about masculinity, what it is, how to achieve it, how to overcome trauma through it. You’ll learn how worshipping your body will give you confidence in yourself and give you security about who you are as a man.
