Hero Forge, Episode 9: Parkour as an Heroic Path

In this conversation I chat with Dan Edwardes, founder of Parkour Generations, about parkour as a training discipline which is perfectly suited to developing the skills, attributes and mental resilience needed to be of service in the world. The interview includes a 25 minute excerpt from a wider conversation with members of the London parkour community, who had just survived a 9 hour ‘night mission’ shaped around Campbell’s Hero’s Journey.

In 2017 and 2018, Andy Fisher created a podcast called the Hero Forge project. In 2019 he appeared on the Movers Mindset podcast (episode 60). In response to his interview on Movers Mindset, several people expressed interest in hearing the Hero Forge podcast, and we—Andy and Craig—are delighted to present these audio files here for your enjoyment!

You can find Andy’s book, The Hero Forge on Amazon and you can reach him these days via his photography web site, Andy Lee Fisher Headshots. If you’d like to discuss the Hero Forge podcast, (or anything else related to Movers Mindset,) please consider joining the Movers Mindset community.
