More About Garry

Garry Junkuhn is a father who has experienced significant personal challenges and transformed these into a mission to help others. He founded "100k Fathers," an organization that prepares fathers to reunite with their children. This initiative was born out of Garry’s own painful experience of losing contact with his two sons for over three years, a period in his life marked by intense emotional turmoil and a journey toward personal healing and growth.

Garry’s life took a dramatic turn when he lost contact with his children, which led him to undergo a profound personal transformation. He engaged in various healing practices and experienced a nomadic lifestyle, including time spent with a tribe in the Amazon jungle. These experiences, along with mentors, meditation, and other spiritual practices, contributed to his recovery and eventual reunion with his sons.

Through his organization, Garry aims to support fathers who have lost contact with their children, offering guidance and tools to help them reconnect. His approach focuses on changing harmful beliefs and stories, releasing feelings of shame, guilt, and anger, and preparing these fathers to become the best versions of themselves when they reunite with their children.
