PRIMAL "Celebrating Fire Cooking, Meat & the Art of Butchering"

The name of the event that I attended up in Napa Valley this weekend, conjured up images of just that...essential...fundamental.

And to think that we have to now create a celebration for something that is so embedded in our DNA is remarkable and embarrassing to some degree. After thousands of years living primally, we have created a world of conveniences that have desensitized and devalued us to that which really matters. The good news is there is this huge shift in paradigm where everything primal is attractive and being devoured at a rapid pace.  A good friend of mine used to say, "get in touch with your inner chimp."  He was right.  As CrossFitters, we are doing this every time we step into the gym and sort through fundamental movements, share food, share thoughts, stress inoculate, stress relieve, lift heavy things, sprint, jump, play and thrive.  Whether its human movement, human diet, or human spirit, primal is where we are moving and it's a good sign.  Paleo Nutrition, CrossFit, Primal Blueprint, S.P.E.A.R., Whole9, MovNat, Mobility, essential, fundamental....
