Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on Josh Misner, Ph.D. He created the Mindful Dad project in 2012 as an effort to help other fathers connect on a more meaningful level with their children, regardless of age. Dr. Misner is an award-winning communication & leadership professor and mindfulness researcher, whose research focuses on the impact of mindful presence, or paying careful attention on purpose, particularly with respect to fathers and their families.

A devoted husband and active father of four, Dr. Misner teaches parents practical, realistic methods they can apply to their lives to savor each and every moment with the intention of playing an active role in children’s memories tomorrow. To help fathers facilitate this goal, Dr. Misner founded the Mindful Dad Project, a collaborative community effort aimed at reconnecting fathers who desire a deeper connection with their children.

Josh has also co-authored a book titled, The Dadly Way: 10 Steps to More Active Fatherhood and Equal Parenting, with Hogan Hilling, author of the Dads Behaving Dadly book series. The Dadly Way provides a pathway for fathers to earn their place as parenting equals, committed to being mindfully present for their children and an integral part of tomorrow’s memories.
