The tabloids and media platforms of our modern society have been carpet bombed with words like “toxic masculinity” and “patriarchy,” almost always pointing out the detriments of the collective masculine without any sort of an inkling as to what a healthy solution would be. It goes without saying that we have all witnessed the bearings of a man who is lost unto himself—isolated, abusive, violent, withdrawn, and ultimately in a great deal of pain that they can sometimes be entirely aware of.
Granted, it isn’t just men who experience this sense of overwhelming disconnect from themselves; it has become a very common ailment in our day and age. As it becomes more and more about what is “fast” and “easy” and less about what is true, difficult, and right, more human beings are feeling beset by their very own programming and conditioning. This is particularly true for men—young and old—who are operating out of the same programs their fathers and grandfathers passed down to them. But where does this behavior come from? Why do so many subscribe to such an archaic form of humanship? IS THERE ANOTHER WAY?
On this episode, I will have the pleasure to have Dylan Hunter Olson, Authentic Brotherhood Founder, transformational coach, and musical artist known as Lover., as my guest for my LIVE Light Warrior Radio Show.

Having a traumatic childhood rife with his father’s suicide, sexual abuse, and an overall disconnect from himself, he spiraled out in a romanticized view of suicide, madness, drug and alcohol addiction beneath an umbrella of self-loathing and crippling fear. He always knew that there was something more; that HE was something more, and so after hitting his rock bottom many times, he decided enough was enough, and it was time to allow for change to run its course.
He was always creative and found great refuge in music as a child, and as such, music has become a way for him to connect with his audiences and begin a dialogue. Through his music, his writing, his teaching, and his Being, he strives to be a light to others who can’t see beyond their pain and remind them of their importance and beauty.
Never having a father or a reliable father figure to count on, he had to learn about what “being a man” was on his own. It was through the tragedies in his life that he discovered his purpose in leading others back to the love within themselves when it all seems to no avail.
