Josh Mantz: Trauma, the military and overcoming

By November 28, 2019 No Comments

“The decade long emotional struggle that I would go through afterwards to try to find meaning in this second life was far more challenging than the experience of dying.” – Josh Mantz

This week we have a rebroadcast of our episode with Joshua Mantz. Josh is a retired Major who commanded in the Army for a decade and is on the board of The Courage Foundation.  In 2007 he was very seriously wounded by a sniper on the outskirts of Sadr City, and he actually died for 15 minutes, before being miraculously revived. Joshua has also recently authored the book “The Beauty of a Darker Soul: Overcoming Trauma through the Power of Human Connection.” He talks with Commander Divine about what the experience of dying was like, and the mental challenges of emotional trauma.
