Generative Energy #13: Exploring Ray Peat's Work Beyond Nutrition

 
 

Listen to Karen Mcc and I discuss our experiences on nutrition groups, our introduction to Ray Peat, and why Ray Peat doesn’t want you to ‘follow him’ in episode #13 of The Generative Energy Podcast!

“The culture of adaptation creates a life trajectory, in which what they want is contrary to what life needs. Remembering yourself as the one whose future is always in question, in doubt and open, you know where youthful energy lives, and I think it starts to feel as though gravity is pulling for you, making things roll toward you—that is, things indicate where they need to go, so it isn’t necessary to plan, instead, to keep perceiving the possibilities as they open up better generalities.“ —Ray Peat
