About Ryan Benz

While successful by most external measures, by his early thirties, Ryan Benz felt empty and exhausted, dissatisfied with his life, and eager to strengthen his connection to himself and the natural world. In the prime of his life, he chose a nontraditional path, diving headfirst into the world of mindfulness and letting go of everything contributing to his unhappiness—including the career he had spent over ten years building. Turning to the healing power of nature, Benz’s trek took him over two thousand miles through the woods from Georgia to Maine, and with each step traveled, he returned a little closer to his true self. Ryan now spends his time sharing his story to show others they have the power to choose their own path.
