Wanted to wrap up our 2021 New Year's updates before we get out of January so everyone can grok the landscape ahead and choose where and how you'd like to plug in along the way.
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that we have always deliberately modeled our life and work along that of Yvon Chouinard and the company he founded, Patagonia. Except that we're looking to do in the realm of training homegrown humans what they did for gearing homegrown humans.
To that end, we've acquired a property at 10,000' in the Rocky Mountains and are commencing building a fully sustainable off-grid passive solar alpine cabin up there. It is going to serve as FGP World HQ and the base for our most intense year-long training programs, the Omega Project. It will also be the likely place from which future books and creativity will come (thanks Elon for hooking up those Starlink satellites just in time!).
We are also building out a seasonal basecamp with rad pavilions and tensile structures, customized shipping containers that convert into kitchens and lounges, and extreme neuro-kinesthetic playground equipment so everyone can learn to throw down safely and with the support of community.
And as we share this Fall, we're getting back to our roots and running experiential leadership programs in beautiful natural settings.
So what happens when you put these three tiers––the Alpine HQ, the superfun basecamp, and the seasonal adventure trainings all together?
The world's baddest ass Hedonic Calendar ever.
And you're invited to chase the hydrologic cycle with us––from snowfall to snowmelt to rivers running to the sea.
Be like water. Sounded like a good idea when Bruce said it, so we decided we'd follow his sage advice.
We begin at the headwaters of the Colorado River at our FGP HQ at 10,000' where we ski, snowboard and explore in the winter (Flow and Snow). We gather as an extended community for Flow Camp in the aspen forests (Flow Camp). We then follow the snowmelt down to the Utah Canyons, etched over millennia on the river’s way to the Sea of Cortez (Flow Canyons). Then we end in Baja California Sur, in a little fishing and kitesurfing town to learn about ocean living and sport (Flow Ocean).
This reflects the cycle of the seasons, as well as the cycle of our lives, and provides community members from all around the world the chance to reset the metronome of each year by attending and training with us. We balance the intimate in-person events with a suite of digital courses, that allow anyone, anywhere the chance to level up their lives and impact.
That's the jam––it's simple and elegant and we're stoked to spend the next ten years building it all. It's how we've always lived our lives (as do most folks in mountain towns). And it seemed powerful enough to want to share with you too. We won't be rolling out signups yet for Flow Camp in late July, or our Fall trainings––but know they're coming.
We share what's happening on the leading edge of peak performance and culture. Connect with us and stay in the know.
