My name is Traver Boehm and I’ve worked with thousands of men since publishing my book “Man UNcivilized”.
With over 14 years teaching and coaching men—I’ve seen enough to know that men are in pain. They want to become better men, but the civilized world teaches them to go it alone and struggle in silence.
That’s why I created The UNcivilized Nation: a brotherhood of like-minded men committed to growth, success, and expansive consciousness.
Joining the UNcivilized Nation gives you access to the resources, connections, and accountability you need to thrive in your relationships, health, finances, and personal growth.
Our mission is to inspire and empower men like you to become the best version of yourself.

Who are our members?
We have over 250 men in an intentional community of supportive, UNcivilized brotherhood.
They were just like you—looking for other men following this path to learn and grow together.
Meet some of our men:
Father, UNcivilized Nation Group Leader and member, US Air Force Veteran, Astrodynamics Engineer
“The UNcivilized Nation has surpassed all of my expectations after joining. The amount of honest and sincere brotherhood I have experienced is exactly what I needed; the Nation is a safe place for men to do the work and grow together.”
Hospitality Ambassador, Men’s Group Leader, Musician, Artist, Writer, Runner, Student to Life
“Joining the Nation amid the pandemic multiplicatively increased my support system. Knowing I have hands on my back has allowed me the privilege of building and rebuilding my life alongside others who care simply because we’re fellow men. There’s always someone to connect with meaningfully.”
Mark Sylvester, Elder
Sherpa, Husband, Father, Entrepreneur, Producer, TEDx Curator, Chef, Podcaster
“Being a part of the Nation has provided me with the opportunity to share deep conversations about what’s most important in life. The Elder Council is something I wish I had access to when I was 15.”
The civilized world isn’t coming to save you.
As men, society has taught us that we have two choices. We can either harden ourselves to become an emotionless Lone Wolf, or soften ourselves to become a gutless Nice Guy.
But the only thing I’ve seen come from these two options is pain:
- Divorce, because we don’t know how to lead our relationships with kindness and strength
- Heavy drinking and drug use
- Suicide, when we think it’s our only option
- Porn addiction, so we can feel good for two fucking seconds
- The list goes on…
What if there was another option?
One the civilized world isn’t interested in. One that works. One that honors who we are as men, and gives us space to grow into who we need to become as men. This is the path of the UNcivilized Man.
The UNcivilized Man...
Is Unapologetically Male. Dangerous but not a danger. Makes still his mind, makes savage his body. Knows his deepest 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.
I know what you're thinking...
“It sounds great in theory, but is it really possible?”
Can you really...
- Step up as a man in the world
- Learn to lead with a healthy masculine
- Become more grounded
- Gain clarity of purpose and vision
- Build meaningful connections with other men
- Be better tomorrow than you were yesterday
You most certainly can.
The UNcivilized Nation is where good men become great men—together.
As a member, you’ll have everything you need to get better at managing your relationships, staying healthy, handling money, and growing personally.
You don’t have to do it all alone.
Why the hell should you listen to me?
Because I’ve been there. Right where you are now. I lost a pregnancy, my marriage, and my business partnership all within weeks of each other. I’ve been in pain from living the way that society told me a man should live.
Then I said fuck it, and started a radical social experiment. I spent the next 12 months as if it were my last year to live.
Highlights of the year include:
- Volunteering with the dying as a hospice worker
- Meditating for 28 days STRAIGHT in a Guatemalan hut in complete isolation and pitch-black darkness
- Living in the frigid Utah wilderness with ONLY a knife, a water bottle, and a blanket for a WHOLE month
Most importantly, I learned to lean on other men in my life to heal and grow faster than I ever could’ve on my own. It radically changed my life and now I’m using the lessons I learned to help men like you become UNcivilized WITHOUT having to go to those lengths.JOIN THE NATION
What our members have experienced:
Father, Husband, Son, Brother, 1+ Year into Men’s Work, Finance Manager, Recovering Nice Guy
“I joined The UNcivilized Nation a little over a year ago. I knew I needed community and desired to grow.
I was scared of joining because I couldn’t fathom other men supporting me, not judging me, and saying they’ll have my back. But they have, I’ve been able to show up being authentic, and been met where I am, and supported.
The Nation has helped me stop feeling like I’m at the effect of circumstances, and instead tap into my ability to express boundaries, convey my needs, and be OK when everything says I shouldn’t be. I wouldn’t be on the path I am now without joining The Nation, taking the Kill the Nice Guy course, and leaning on my brothers in there.”
Father, Firefighter, Martial Artist, Recovering Nice Guy
“For most of my life I have struggled with anger and frustration, feeling stifled and lost. I have had great internal conflict, feeling this anger, a lot of it at myself, but feeling guilty for feeling it.
Being part of The UNcivilized Nation has helped me by surrounding me with like-minded men, also on the path of better understanding themselves so as to better serve those around them.
These men have helped me understand that prioritizing my desire to be liked is destructive for me and those around me. I’ve got a lot more work to do, but I have the support of some good men to do it. ”
Former Firefighter/EMT, Personal Trainer, CrossFit Coach, Mortgage Loan Originator, Nerd Disguised as a Meathead and Recovering Nice Guy
“This movement has brought the necessary changes my soul has been seeking.
It gave me the ability to look at my life and see exactly where I abandoned myself and taught me how to not only forgive myself but also how to begin healing those parts I didn’t want to look at, let alone let anyone else see in me.
It grabbed me by the heart (albeit sometimes even by my balls) and dragged the BEST of my masculine energy out of me, showed it to me and embedded deep in my chest. I “knew” I was before, and I’m proud to say I know who I am healing to be. Proud FOR (not of) every man that takes this journey to make the world a better place.”

About the founder:
Traver Boehm knows men. How they 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?”
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, Traver counsels men, women, and couples on how to better understand men’s mental health and relationship difficulties.
With a passion for people and a unique lens through which to view the human experience, Traver is a highly sought after teacher in the fields of consciousness, relationship, and personal development.
Do I Have To Join For Any Length Of Time?
Not at all. You can join for a month and leave anytime with just an email. We don’t do long term contracts or penalize men for leaving once they’ve gotten what they need. That being said, most Nation men have been with us for years now!
When do the monthly calls take place?
- Monthly Challenge Call: 12pm ET, first week of the month (on a weekday)
- Relationship Series Call: 9pm ET, second Monday of the month
- Monthly Coaches Corner Call: Generally on a weekend morning the second weekend of the month
- Open Office Hours Call with Traver: 12pm ET, last week of the month (on a weekday)
Is there any religious affiliation to this group?
Negative. We don’t care who you pray to or don’t. We just want you to be a good man who’s interested in bettering himself.
Is there an age requirement to join?
We have men in their early 20’s all the way up to men in their 70’s. If you’re under 18, we’ll just have to hop on the phone and make sure this is the right group for you.
Are gay men welcome to join The Nation?
Absolutely. Like our religious views, we don’t care who you fall in love with as long as they’re a consenting adult. We have a number of gay men in The Nation who are kicking ass at life and will be the first to tell you the least interesting thing about their lives is their sexual orientation. We agree. UNcivilized men come in all shapes, sizes, and manners of being. We just want good men and we have them.
Are there in-person meetings? Or is this only an online team?
Both. We have 15 live groups all over the world at the moment and are growing fast! We’re also starting to host workshops specifically for men who are interested in running their own city's/town’s UNcivilized Men’s Team.
Is there anything weird or culty about The Nation?
Absolutely…we have a t-shirt that we’ll send you for free when you join. We hope you wear it to the gym. Rumor has it that’s how cults start, but to be honest, that’s as far as we’ve gotten. All the cult leaders we know have long flowing hair, so Dave and I are kind of excluded from that camp.
We will have you doing some push ups and taking cold showers for a few weeks during your orientation period, and you’ll find that men you don’t even know are willing to reach out and help you with your struggles and support you in both good and challenging times. That may feel weird at first, but that’s as weird as we get.
TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR MEMBERS
In the Nation, I found, for the first time in my life, a place where I can show up authentically without fear of judgement or criticism. A place where I share openly about my struggles and victories, where I receive genuine support from men who are on the same path.
—D.C., Bend, OR
The Nation has provided me with an open door. An open door to be myself. An open door to express my masculinity. An open door to ask the questions I didn't feel safe asking anywhere else. The Nation has opened up the door for more possibilities in my life than I ever thought possible.
—E.D., Des Moines IA
The Nation is a place of freedom. A place to be what I need to be. A Man alongside Men. It is a gathering of real men, men who have the balls to step outside the conventional world and live UNcivilized.
—M.H., Lethbridge, AUS
I’m thankful for an open, no judgment space to share my struggles and wins. Show up and do the work, the wins will come, but you have to be here.
—Z.M., Mansfield, OH
This group has been a huge blessing for me! Just listening to the stories that everyone is going through helps me feel like I'm not alone. Being able to express how I feel and knowing that I'm going to receive quality feedback and support is a great feeling to have.
—N.O., Wheat Ridge, CO
The Nation checks my bullshit, challenges me to make the most of the present, forces me to question the easy path, sits with me when I’m right down in the dirt, celebrates with me when I’m not. It’s a global band of brothers I’m privileged to belong to.
—C.C., London, U.K.
I've always had to be a one-man army before, fighting the battles of life alone. This group gives me like-minded men who will support and defend that fight, so we all achieve victory.
—G.B., Philadelphia, PA
This nation has allowed me to gain a community of like-minded men, who have zero interests in anything other than helping each other heal!
—T.J., Compton, CA
I have a global tribe of men who I can trust and know that they got my back just like I got theirs. A band of brothers on whom I can lean on, learn from and share with.
—H.K., The Hague, NL
One of the best decisions that I've made in 40 years of life. If you are seeking brotherhood, knowledge, expansion, peace, awareness, heart, leadership, and so much more, seek no more. This IS it!
—R.W., Denver, CO
