This year my team and I are hitting the road to deliver the Primal experience to cities across the United States and beyond. From the shores of Malibu to the mountains of New York, and from Delaware, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and California, all the way to the Mayan Riviera in Tulum, Mexico – we’re coming to you with a lineup of life-changing events. And we’re doing it in more ways than one. There’s everything from classroom-style evening seminar presentations, to action packed all-day events, to transformative weekend retreats. I hope you’ll join us!
Here’s a quick rundown of Primal events in 2014, including the introduction of two brand new ones: PrimalCon New York and the Primal Blueprint Roadshow!
Introducing PrimalCon New York – June 5th-8th
PrimalCon is coming to the east coast! To all of you who made your voices heard that we needed to branch PrimalCon out to other locations: thanks….and I better see you in June! PrimalCon New York is scheduled for June 5-8th, 2014 and tickets are on sale now. We have discovered a truly amazing facility in upstate New York called the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. Mohonk is a historic Victorian castle located on secluded parkland in the lush Hudson Valley, 88 miles north of New York City. Travel is easy to New York-area airports or the Albany airport 80 miles north.
Mohonk is one of the classic New York state resorts, family owned and operated since 1869. It’s a sprawling 280-acre facility featuring sweeping lawns, award-winning gardens, a beautiful lake, and extensive hiking trails. We will engage in extensive outdoor activities and dine on customized Primal-menu offerings from their award-winning chefs in their exquisite private dining room.
If you’ve never been to a PrimalCon, I am certain that you will have the time of your life. And if you’re a PrimalCon veteran ($100 discount for PrimalCon alums!), consider coming out to the Hudson Valley this June for this exciting new Mohonk event. The event page has extensive details and even an overview of our daily agenda, so you can see exactly what kind of fun you are in for!
PrimalCon Vacation Tulum and PrimalCon Oxnard
PrimalCon Vacation Tulum is less than a month away and there are only eight rooms remaining in our block with no guarantee of expansion at this time. Get your tickets today before it’s too late!
Also, ticket sales are open for PrimalCon Oxnard, our fifth annual event at the Mandalay Beach Resort on September 25-28, 2014.
The Primal Blueprint Transformation Retreat
With the great success of the Primal Blueprint Transformation Retreats (formerly known as Luxury Retreats) in 2013, Vanessa Lambert is increasing her efforts to ramp up these events in 2014 (and maybe even adding another location besides Malibu). If you’re not aware, the Retreats are hosted in one of Malibu’s most exquisite estates, and are designed to immerse you in real world scenarios, guiding you step-by-step through Primal eating, exercise, and lifestyle strategies over the course of two full days and three nights. These retreats are limited to 12 spots, so if you’re interested contact us immediately. The first one in 2014 is scheduled for April 10-13 in Malibu and will likely fill quickly.
Primal Play Day
The first ever Primal Play Day is less than two weeks away! Think of Play Day as the best of PrimalCon jam packed into a single day. Each Play Day will start out with a 2-hour meet and greet, and hot topic discussion. Then there will be guided movement and mobility sessions, followed by a Primal picnic, and then an afternoon of paddle boarding and kayaking in the Pacific Ocean. This event is led by our expert coaches Adam and Vanessa Lambert, and is designed for any fitness/skill level. The first Primal Play Day is scheduled for Saturday, February 15, in beautiful Malibu, CA. You can learn more and get your tickets here. So come out, learn a few things, move your body, play, have fun, eat some delicious food, and do it all with your fellow Primal enthusiasts.
Introducing the Primal Blueprint Roadshow
The Primal Blueprint Roadshow is a brand new event we’re kicking off this year. Led by popular veteran PrimalCon presenters Tracy Barksdale, Darryl Edwards, Tara Grant, Bob Montgomery, and Orleatha Smith, this dynamic group will cover all aspects of Primal living – everything from getting started to getting super creative with your meal planning and workouts if you are Primal veteran. Presentations and groupings will be customized for beginner and intermediate guests, and feature extensive question and answer interaction, fitness workshops, rehab and mobility assistance, “playshops” where you’ll learn how to make exercise fun again, and a cooking demonstration with top Primal chefs who will cook you lunch – and teach you how to make it yourself!
Two locations/dates are already on the books: Inglewood, CA (Mar. 29) and San Diego, CA (Mar. 30). You can learn more and get your tickets here.
The Primal Blueprint Transformation Seminar
The Primal Blueprint Transformation Seminar is designed to give you a detailed but easy-to-follow introduction to Primal living through the Primal Blueprint 8 Key Concepts and 5 Action Items. If you are new Primal living, this is the place to start.
If you are convenient to West Bloomfield, MI (Feb. 8), Newark, DE (Feb. 27), or Bryn Mawr, PA (Mar. 20), don’t miss these fast-paced, 2 1/2 hour seminars, consisting of live presentations, entertaining slide shows and audience question and answer interaction.
Phew. Well, that’s it, ladies and gentleman. It looks to be an action-packed year. I and all the other presenters and coaches look forward to meeting you in person this year. Let us know what you think in the comment board and Grok on!
