WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ZENSO?
I don't know, go for an aimless stroll sans phone? Or hit
OKAY BUT WHAT IS IT?
Every time you ask it changes (life?); so words are certainly not it, and especially these words are not it. Do you feel the slow kissing of floor and feet while reading?
IS ZENSO LIKE CROSSFIT?
No. Zenso is not exhaustive exercise.
WILL ZENSO MAKE ME LOOK BETTER NAKED?
Yes. It will also make you feel better naked.
WHAT ELSE IS ZENSO GOOD FOR?
Adaptability, strength, and longevity. As well as amicable relations. More? Zenso can be thought of as opportunity ground for reigniting the metabolism of youth and unearthing the power within, while treasuring nature, connection, and movement (being). But I'm biased.
DO I NEED PREVIOUS ATHLETIC EXPERIENCE?
What you need is previous human experience.
SO THIS MAY CHANGE MY LIFE?
You already are change.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Feet. Maybe fresh, hot, sugar-laden coffee. A hot spirit. Or a Mexican Coke if that’s what you prefer. Aspirin? Sure, that too. And maybe a bit of baking soda.
SHOULD I WEAR SHOES?
It really doesn't give a damn.
Dress appropriately for full-range debauchery, rambling, derailment, etc.
WHAT MAKES ZENSO DIFFERENT?
II. Strong asses. Flexible brains. Playing Zenso will grow asses and brains.
III. Bubboki Dazo
VI. "How many reps?" "How much weight?" "For how long?" Arbitrary!!! Artists don't care about results they care about experience (so I hear).
WHY TREASURE AND PRACTICE MOVEMENT?
Without it, we couldn't eat oysters or drink coffee. Or think. Or pee or poop or explore our animalism. So we move to...
1) be alive 2) cogitate 3) play
CAN YOU IMAGINE LIFE WITHOUT MOVEMENT?
CAN I DO ZENSO ALONE?
Alone is why Zenso can be so energizing; but alone doesn’t mean apart.
IS PLAYING OUTSIDE THE COMFORTS OF THE LIVING ROOM, HARD?
At first, yes. But Zenso - which is outside all the jazz of typical comforts - is so much a testament to our primal humanness, that you won't want anything but Zenso after you realize it's something you've been missing. An homage to who we are. Also a humungous FUCK YOU to the billion dollar "health" industry which capitalizes on the promulgation of the culturally-reinforced message that we're never enough. In more ways than one, Zenso is a statement (and action) of acceptance, inseparability, and love of nature, as well as the practice of authentic, unbound, and passionate confusion.
BUT ISN’T “GETTING FIT” ALL ABOUT “IMPROVEMENT” ?
Look, you can believe in that rubble if you want, but let me explain why I think that’s backwards evolution: if you’re always thinking and acting on the assumption that you need to improve, then you’re simply training stronger the feeling of not being good enough. The psychological and physiological strain of “trying” [to be more than you are], will never be lifted, and expression that is filled with gratitude, pleasure, and flexibility, will never see the light of day. Good doings appear to be done, by individuals who are okay with themselves (by people who just feel good to begin with) —> it is here, where unabated behavior is allowed to express itself. I call it, quite dissolvingly, letting epic happen.
IS GOING OUT FOR A QUIET MISSION, ACCOMPANIED ONLY BY THOUGHTS AND THE TREES AND THE BREEZE, ZENSO?
IS PUMPING IRON OR SPRINTING IN THE DOPE OF NATURE ZENSO?
RAIN OR SHINE?
Yes. Or hell or high water. Zenso welcomes the myriad of ways nature represents itself.
IS DEADLIFTING IN THE POETRY OF AN OPEN GARAGE ZENSO?
CAN I HAVE A PERSONALIZED PROGRAM DESIGNED FOR ME?
Maybe but probably not. Contact Butter to ask though.
IS ZENSO PART CHILL, PART THRILL?
I think so, yes.
IS ZENSO FOR ME GOING TO LOOK LIKE ZENSO FOR YOU?
I thought we covered this: You can't nail a peg into the sky.
HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT TROUBLE?
You can't. It's exclusive and happens in secret, marvelous locations. If you're in Trouble you have been handpicked ("by invitation only").
It's a loose, snail-slow, play in learning about relationship (body-brain-environment), while being drugged of the quiet, expansive qualities of life. Oh and it's finding pleasure in squatting which itself is an integrally flowing and practical aspect of being.
IS DOING GETUPS ON THE BEACH TO THE SYMPHONY OF CRASHING WAVES AND ENDLESS SKY ZENSO?
IS LEAPING OVER PUDDLES IN THE MIDST OF PRETTY, POUNDING RAIN, ZENSO?
WHAT’S THE BEST “EXERCISE” TO DO ON MY OWN?
CAN I JUST PAY FOR PRIVATE TRAINING WITH BUTTER?
The short answer is probably not. It's likely to cost you more than you're willing to spend. However, he routinely accepts goods, services, or exquisitely tasting, PolyUnsaturated-Fat-free foods, as a more enticing payment for training than $$$. Contact him to pitch.
IS STRENGTH ALL ABOUT BEING STRONG?
Don't think so, no. Sometimes it's about being soft, gentle, fluid. That writ, if you want to get strong, play with and stick to the basics.
HOW CAN I GET THE "BUTTER UPPENEYA"?
The un-manual of sorts (the Zenso Play Scrap), can be purchased from Butter for $13.69 or received as a gift upon getting into Trouble.
DOES ZENSO HAVE AN ANTHEM?
A what?! Read this if you want some motivational nonsense.
