    By now you're probably well-aware that this year's Peak Prosperity annual seminar is being held in beautiful northern California's wine country from April 26-28, 2019.

    And yes, of course, Chris and I think the experience delivered at these seminars is life-changing and highly valuable — and we strongly recommend you join us this year. But as the producers of the event, we're obviously biased as heck.

    So rather than hearing more from us, why not hear from actual Peak Prosperity members who have attended? What do they think?

    Is it a worthwhile investment? What can you expect?

    Well, we asked several PPers who went last year to share their thoughs with you. Each submitted a short video clip, which we've stiched together into this brief montage for you.

    Following on our recent podcast with Sebastian Junger about our shared evolutionary programming for tribal living, this week Chris meets with community-building experts Bill Kauth and Zoe Aloman, co-authos of We Need Each Other. 

    Many PeakProsperity.com readers know that Chris has long found value in his weekly men's group. That group spawned out of the ManKind Project, which Kauth helped found back in the 1980s.

    In this week's podcast, Chris, Bill and Zoe discuss the best practices and critical success factors for how to create tribal ties in our own communities. The work is not easy, but nor is it impossible. And it is incredibly rewarding.

    For those looking to develop more Social Capital in their lives, this will be a particularly relevant interview to listen to.

    Sebastian Junger: Our Evolutionary Need For Community

    Tribal solidarity is in our genetic programming

    Peabody award-winning author Sebastian Junger joins our podcast this week. Junger is well-known for his NYT-bestselling books The Perfect Storm and War, the latter of which was written after a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. 

    Based on his observations while in Afghanistan, Junger noted how much troops in combat valued the social solidarity of their units. In fact, he noted that the loss of this cohesive community, with its sense of purpose and shared responsibility, created prodigious psychological strife when these soldiers returned and tried to re-integrate into civilian life. This dynamic is not just limited to the military; any collection of humans working in tight-knit groups under stress, united in purpose, evidences similar behavior (Peace Corps volunteers, trauma care physicians, etc).

    In his latest book Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging, Junger explores our evolutionary wiring for community, and paradoxically, how our modern aspirations for "success" and "wealth" attempt to distance ourselves from it — making us unhappier and emotionally unhealthier in the pursuit.
