Joshua Mantz

Josh Mantz is a professional speaker, author, and the CEO of Darker Souls, LLC; a clinical training and leadership consulting company tailored to the behavioral health and medical industries. He’s a 2005 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and received the Purple Heart and Bronze Star with Valor while serving in combat in Iraq. He was killed after sustaining a fatal gunshot wound in Baghdad only to be miraculously revived by an expert medical team after his heart stopped for a full fifteen minutes. His greatest challenge, however, wasn’t cheating death, but coping with life. He experienced the paradoxes of trauma in unimaginable ways as he walked through the shadows of shame, guilt, powerlessness, and betrayal. His decade-long quest to uncover the truth behind trauma laid the foundation for his work today. His #1 best-selling book, The Beauty of a Darker Soul, carries a universal message about trauma that empowers people to transcend through their most challenging experiences. Josh currently resides in San Jose, California, and is pursuing a master’s degree in consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
