Today’s episode is the first to feature Ben behind the microphone, as he interviews the inspiring Dr Arne Rubinstein – a doctor, counsellor and mentor who has had a profound impact on Ben, as well as the lives of many young men throughout the world.
Arne is an expert in adolescent development who had a life-changing experience 20 years ago while on a rite of passage camp. In this episode he and Ben talk through his personal enlightenment and what it felt like to shed his safe, well respected job for the unknown, as well as his thoughts on living intuitively and aligning our actions with our values.
Realising that – for adolescent boys in Western culture, particularly – there was a distinct lack of rites of passage and strong role models, Arne sold his practice, bought a property in the rural Byron Bay hinterland and lived in a bus for three years as he built a camp to mentor young men.
20 years later he is an author, facilitates mentoring programs and provides leadership coaching world-wide, but even more importantly, spends his days doing exactly what he was put on earth to do – and that is something that both Ben and Brooke find truly inspiring.
