What did this episode awaken in you? Don’t be shy.


I talk with an old friend – Brendon Tomasi – about his journey from Party Animal to Father Animal, and the ritual he developed to help him make that transition. In a culture where the Baby Shower seems to be so popular, and is more about Things than Mothers, the Fatherhood Ritual places an importance on the emotional state and the developmental moment of fatherhood. My hope is that it can honor and include the struggles modern men have at a critical moment in their lives.


This is Ten Thousand Heroes and I’m Ankur Shah Delight.


This show, Ten Thousand Heroes, is about aligning our life with our purpose.


Most of the time that requires:

  • Confusion

  • Hard work

  • Addressing conflict, and

  • Unconditional love


How would we treat each other if we assumed every person we met was a hero in disguise (just like we are)?


How would our society and culture change if we did that?


We’re here to support you and challenge you during that journey.
