Rewild your body, mind, and spirit with Zander Hathaway and friends at the enchanting Florestral Forest Community. Enjoy an abundance of exotic tropical fruits, fresh coconuts, and simple-gourmet raw foods. Practice primal movement and play with special guests Jordy “Tarzan” Vink, and raw vegan chef Liana Elizabeth. Walk barefoot, climb trees, forage your own fruit, explore epic waterfalls, swim, sunbathe, relax and tune your senses to the wilderness. Learn about our fellow apes, non-verbal communication, regenerative detoxification, and permaculture in a respectful clothing-optional setting with comfortable accommodations. Feel free to participate in activities or simply follow your bliss!

Go with the Natural Flow


Our daily flow will shift from numerical time to the natural light cycle. The first night we will enjoy a bonfire and opening circle. We will gradually transition away from dependency on modern technology by resting when it is dark and practicing non-verbal communication at certain times. Movement classes and most activities will involve speaking. We will eat in accordance with our species-specific diet — fresh fruits, leafy greens, coconuts, with some simple-gourmet raw foods. When we return to civilization, we will feel rejuvenated and more deeply rooted in our wild nature.
