The primal/paleo community focuses mainly on diet and physical fitness. This Meetup extends the primal/paleo experience to our emotional life. 

In the same way that our digestive systems are optimized for foods roughly parallel to those of our ancestors’ diet in the evolutionary past, our emotional systems function optimally when we get a mix of experiences which were central to life in the primal past. 

These “emotional nutrients” include lots of contact with nature, membership in a small intimate tribe, and being mindfully present to the immediate moment. 

Unfortunately, many of these primal experiences are missing from the lives of most of us. Modern culture takes us away from much contact with nature, deprives us of a tribe of intimates, and keeps us stuck in our head and not really living in the now.

But just as we can drop the standard diet in favor of a primal/paleo diet, we can do the same for our emotional life. We can embrace a whole new set of experiences and enjoy the emotional boost that living in accordance with our primal nature provides.

Want to learn more? 

The first step is to read the first chapter (the Intro) of the book Joyshift: the journey to primal happiness. Download a free PDF copy of the chapter. 

You can also buy the book. Digital or paper (softcover). 

The second step is to join us for regular meetings, workshops and retreats to move more deeply into the primal lifestyle. The upcoming dates are set out below.
