#15 A Father's Heartbreak: A Story of Love and Loss with Daniel Moe

Season #1

Daniel believes it is crucial to “reveal ourselves to each other”, and this episode is no exception. He talks about the loss of his son and the intricacies of grief. He shares how he delayed his own grief in support of his family and how he channels it through his art, for something beautiful. Join this heartful conversation, where we also unpack money & relationships, question blockages founded in old beliefs, and find ways we can build our inner courage through connecting authentically with other men.

About our guest:

Daniel Moe was born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1967. Being drawn by a powerful calling from the Big Island of Hawaii in 1999 was a key factor to further and expand his creative glass work. He currently lives and works in Puna, where he gets his inspiration from living close to Pele, the Nature force of the volcano Kilauea, which is located just a few miles away from his home/studio. The Puna region is also known for its dramatic ocean waters. Waves eternally and passionately crash on the breath-taking lava cliffs moving Daniel to give birth to his ocean wave series.

In 2018, Daniel lost his 4-month-old son after complications from a very traumatic birth. A major life-quaking event changed how he looks and experiences life in a very dramatic way. In 2009, Daniel was initiated into the ManKind Project.  He gives thanks for the positive impact of his MKP brothers and the extraordinary support and love from his wife.

The King's Circle

This episode is sponsored by The Kings Circle. In our hyper-connected world, many men report feeling increasingly disconnected and out of touch with their authentic selves, pretending to be someone they're not, holding their truth instead of speaking it. But it’s impossible to achieve your full potential when you're not authentically you. The King's Circle is a live online gathering for men to speak their truth and reconnect with their authentic selves. Authenticity means completely accepting yourself so you can speak your needs, hold your boundaries, and show up confidently in all situations. This path to self-acceptance isn’t easy, but when you decide to walk it, the King's Circle will give you all the systems, self-enquiry and support you need to connect to your mission and lead your most courageous life. So, if you’re ready to show up as the authentic and integrated father, son or brother you know you came here to be, make sure you’re part of the next Kings Circle. These circles take place live every other Thursday, and you can secure your seat by going to: https://www.fatherssonsbrothers.com/kings-circle.
