Ben Moon is a filmmaker, photographer and author based on the Oregon coast. His beautifully vulnerable memoir "Denali: A Man, a Dog, and the Friendship of a Lifetime" will be released on Penguin Books in January 2020.
Ben has inspired countless people with his photography for Patagonia, impactful portrait series, and the short film "Denali". His new memoir is a moving account of Ben’s journey with colorectal cancer and his special relationship with his dog.
In this episode, we discuss living as an “off-the-charts” empath, the healing powers of dogs and nature, his creative process, and much more! When I read Ben’s memoir, which at its core is a story of growth, resilience, and genuine love and connection, my cheeks were stained with tears. Getting to sit down with him over tea and just talk about life for an hour was so lovely. I can’t wait for you to hear his story.
