How to Safely and Enjoyably Transition to a Barefoot-Dominant Lifestyle

The way we wear them, shoes are a real problem. They sever our physical connection to the earth, perturb our natural running and walking gait, and probably increase our risk of running injuries by increasing the forces acting on our joints when we land. That’s fairly basic stuff for readers of this blog, many of whom are […]

Happy Holidays

In the dim light of morning here, I’m thinking we’ll all wake up to varying ways of observing the day. Whether or not yours is a spiritual celebration today, there’s something to the collective tradition and cultural pause. We might gather with ones we love or send our greetings from afar. We might share our […]

Happy Holidays from Lil’ Grok and the Korgs!

It’s that time of year again, for feasting on savory meats and holiday fare ancestral style, and celebrating friendships and family with gift wrapped treasures of the contemporary kind.

G’Day, Australia – The Primal Hotbed

Something beautiful is happening across the Pacific Ocean. For years, I’ve sensed a strange Primal energy coming off the waves that pound the Malibu coastline, carried across the water from a distant nation whose people have embraced ancestral health and fitness more vociferously than any other.
