Contemplative Consumption: Biohacking in Reverse

  • Needs a location

  • Price: $10.00/per person

    Refund policy

  • Optimize performance, implant this, track that, do more, think better, take these supplements, add this weight, use these shoes to run faster.


    What if we went back; yes, hacked ourselves back to basics. Back to the farm not the factory, back to bodyweight training not weight machines, back to air not air-conditioning, back to note-books not LCD screens.

    No, I don’t mean devolving into some paleolithic lifestyle, but to integrate the natural with the modern rather than trying to replace and outsmart the natural. I am suggesting a quiet pause to realize we spend so much effort trying to outsmart nature though our behaviors, our technologies, our processes that we may lose sight of how much healthier and more efficient it would be to work with the natural flows.

    Interested? Have counter-arguements…this is a work in progress…come to our meetup group at the beginning of December to join the healthy debate
