And I’ll be there
What’s MovNat, you ask? Well if you don’t know about it and its founder, Erwan Le Corre, where have you been? This is where I fist introduced you to him, nearly a year and a half ago, now. You’ll want to read that post, but here’s a quote from Erwan highlighting what MovNat is all about.
The “zoo” is a modern, global and growing phenomenon generated by the powerful combination of social conventions, technological environment and commercial pressures. Increasingly disconnected from the natural world and their true nature, zoo humans are suffering physically, mentally and spiritually.
Are you experiencing chronic pains, are you overweight, do you often feel depressed or do you suffer from frequent illnesses and general lack of vitality? These symptoms indicate that you are experiencing the zoo human syndrome. Modern society conditions us to think that this is normal and unavoidable.
We don’t think so. Our true nature is to be strong, healthy, happy and free.
We have designed a complete education system that empowers zoo humans to experience their true nature.
And that’s what we’re going to do come July. I. Can’t. Wait. Do you want to come along? Then do so, and you can find out all the details and get yourself registered right here. Keep in mind that in addition to the 5-day course with natural workouts and instruction several times per day, you’ll be provided with a private tent, bedding, and three large paleo-friendly meals per day…on real plates, with real utensils and real glassware (Erwan is, after all, a Frenchman — and I don’t ever recall seeing paper plates or — Good God — plastic "sporks" in France). To top it off, there will be "classroom" instruction as well, each evening.
When you consider all that and more, as well as the social aspect I can’t believe I didn’t sign up for this a lot sooner.
Oh, and speaking of the social aspect I almost forgot: Erwan just informed me that Barefoot Ted will be in attendance as well. Since barefooting plays into Erwan’s style of training prominently, that sure sounds like a great fit to me.
Still not convinced? Then watch this and do watch it in HD!
I’m discussing with Erwan the possibility of doing a talk on Paleo principles and, also doing some blogging from the field, perhaps even with a bit of video and photos. I’ll keep you posted as details develop. And I hope to see some of you there.
Update: A couple of additional things to note. First, here’s the testimonials from those who’ve attended multiple day seminars. Here’s an extensive writeup from an attendee on his own blog. Lots of pics and descriptions, so check it out.
