What better way than to go way back to the roots of human development than by living in a minimalist jungle environment.
Sacred boiling river in the heart of the Amazon to cleanse the spirit and body (that is steam)
Extremely healthy diet consisting of all organic fruit, grains, and vegetables (very little meat)
Daily exercise with hiking and swimming to get the body into it's normal optimal state
No internet or cell reception and only a few hours of electricity per day, no distractions
Lots of alone time to contemplate and learn to deal with your emotions and mind
Animals and insects in abundance helping redevelop an appreciation for all life
Living with others who live simple yet happy and fulfilled lives needing very little
Learning about plants and getting back to the root of the human experience; nature
