Fearvana inspires us to look beyond our own agonizing experiences and find the positive side of our lives.~ The Dalai Lama
Everyone experiences fear, stress, or anxiety at some point in life- but that is not a bad thing. When harnessed, these forces can be our most powerful sources of strength to accomplish anything we set our mind to.
To live the Fearvana way is to embrace and transcend our own suffering in service of something greater. Our mission matters more than our fears. We who walk the path of Fearvana pursue a noble ideal that will test us and force us to confront our own demons. Yet we commit to this life knowing that if we don’t seek out a WORTHY struggle, struggle find us anyway.
On Your Stage
Akshay Nanavati has overcome drug addiction, PTSD from fighting the war in Iraq with the Marines (where one of his jobs was to walk in front of vehicles to find bombs), depression and alcoholism that pushed him to the brink of suicide.
Since then he has built a global business, run ultramarathons like a 24 hour run and a 50 miler around a cul-de-sac, written a book endorsed by the Dalai Lama, conducted humanitarian work in post-conflict zones, spent 7 days in darkness, silence and isolation, and explored the most hostile environments on the planet, from mountains to caves to polar icecaps.
Having explored the extreme edges of the human condition, both within and without, Akshay has figured out exactly what it takes to tap into the limitlessness of the human potential and unleash the inner warrior that lives within us all.
