3 Day Hunting Mimicking Retreat - HMR3 FAQ


 "The most powerful mechanisms in your body for anything are survival mechanisms" - Joel Greene

 

What I’ve created is an experience to simulate the “signals” that would be present to our bodies when were hunting for our food.

Signals such as natural light from a fire, fasting, carrying weight over long uneven distances, boredom, cold, heat and feasting etc.

To get the most out a short period of time I am using a technique introduced to me in Joel Greene's book The Immunity Code called signal amplification.

We will use food and supplements plus environmental inputs to boost peaks and valleys of the fasting/feasting cycle.

Looks something like this.

What to Bring 

All weather clothing - we'll be outside the majority of the time so proper footwear, underwear, jackets etc for the season. 

A weighted backpack or rucksack if you have one - if not let me know. (how much weight you carry will be up to you but you should be able to also carry your food & water) 

A blank notebook and pen

A camera instead of a phone if you have one. 

Water jug 

Notes

Phones (airplane mode) - We're going to take a break from technology so plan to be unreachable for a couple days.

Keep your phone in airplane mode at all times so you don't radiate/EMF blast the rest of us in the Habitat Hotel. 

You can use your phone for pictures but if you think the temptation is going to be too great we can also lock it up at reception.

For emergencies our front desk is open from 8 till 10 each day and people can call there to get ahold of you. 

There will be a waiver to sign

If you have any questions please call or email Clint.
