I have Gareth Roriston joining us today. A British native, Gareth spent the last several years in Kenya running a wildlife conservancy and fighting the poaching of elephants and other big game.
During that time he met the Watha, an indigenous tribe of renowned elephant hunters, and entered into their rites of passage to become an elder and respected member of the tribe.
Roriston tells us all about those rites, how they test the important and necessary skills and abilities that define a Watha man, and how the Watha have used them to survive in a Kenyan society that’s becoming increasingly commercialized.
A former European MMA champion, Roriston is also a natural fitness trainer who employs techniques like barefoot running, tree climbing, throwing stones, and more, to counteract the effects of living a sedentary life. He discusses how using these techniques can not only make your body stronger and more fit, but reconnect you to your natural state... the Tribal man within you... and how embracing that side of you can help in every aspect of your life.
