GWU Military Veteran Small Group Program

 
Daniel Comp - Author/Curator

You can paint an interesting character with the evidence of my life. I am a curious explorer, an ambitious entrepreneur, a functional Aspergian, a military Veteran, a Christian storyteller, and hopefully a noble father. Despite numerous achievements, I didn't understand why I did what I did (widwid), and I imagined it to be why I was so easily duped, hoodwinked, and bamboozled.


Across numerous expeditions, I video journaled to understand my drive to achieve, and the constant frustration, and accompanying triggers, and occasional outbursts. The outcome of my journey with a purpose - a 'Personal Everest' as I call it - was discovering that self-reflection video modeling is an effective method for transformation. For this reason, I created the Scotomaville program as a second edition 336-page full-color workbook, a 48-episode video series, and an ongoing online support platform for others to champion their Personal Everest.


I am guiding expeditions for like-minded eccentrics to "follow in the way I began" (Blaise Pascal). Explorers become aware of blind-spots and recognize how modern life games our psychology and physiology. This shift in awareness and pivot of faulty mindsets can turn obstacles into opportunities, transforming the life we were handed into outcomes we design.


The Greatest Expedition you will ever undertake is the journey to self-understanding, for the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes." I challenge you to take up the adventure of getting out of Scotomaville.
