The beauty of our modern society is that we have an abundance of experience available to us compared to our primal ancestors. This is both a blessing and a curse. A balanced diet and active lifestyle used to be guaranteed as every human lived in accordance to the tribal needs and patterns hewn from generations of tribal life. Now, faced with the “Omnivore’s Dilemma,” an abundance of dietary options pulls us away from that natural harmony. Much like our nutritional choice paradox, in a world that provides availability to nearly endless life experiences, which will provide the transformative, positive growth to mimic the rites of passage of old?
There is no “correct” diet. We can only educate ourselves to become the most well-informed omnivores possible. Similarly, you have the opportunity to craft personal rites of passage. I have discovered the three pillars upon which these transformational experiences stand.
