Let me preface this by saying my friend Casey is an inspiration beyond words. But even if you told him that a million times he probably wouldn't have believed it internally. As so many of us do, he has always struggled with finding his place in this world. An incredibly talented musician with athletic abilities beyond comparison (he climbed Humphrey's Peak in slides in the snow and can cold plunge longer than anyone I know) and a very rare form of man who truly puts in the work for his mental health and growth daily, he still felt that sadness - often reflected in his music and hidden by his very funny sense of humor.
So he decided to face all of those shadows head on - in the dark. For seven days at a retreat in Oregon. And what Casey learned about himself and life will bring you to tears and hopefully inspire you to face life head on next time it gets uncomfortable. Because there is light waiting for you on the other side.
"It was the most challenging, unique, and profoundly powerful journey I have ever had. There was over 7 hours of audio, of which I edited down to what I feel are the most useful insights I was shown in the darkness. My goal with this was to provide more in depth look at the journey and what I went through in that room. This is more of a documentary-like video, and I'd recommend watching over just listening. So grab your girl, your man, your mistress, or whoever, and watch my crazy experience from start to finish. If you're on the path of self-discovery, I am confident it will be well worth your while." Casey says in his Facebook post introducing his experience.
I hope you enjoy this as much as myself and so many others have. Thank you Casey, for sharing your experience.
