WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ZENSO?
I don't know, go for an aimless stroll sans phone?
OKAY BUT WHAT IS IT?
Every time you ask it changes (life?); so words are certainly not it, and especially not these. Are there sounds? Where? Is there feeling of earth and feet kissing? Play Attention.
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.
I STILL DON'T GET WHAT ZENSO MEANS?
That's okay I don't really know either. Zenso maybe is just what's happening; and that perhaps we can enjoy this.
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 AN ATHLETIC BACKGROUND?
What you need is a human background.
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. Or whatever you want.
SHOULD I WEAR SHOES?
It really doesn't give a damn.
Dress appropriately for full-range debauchery, rambling, derailment, etc.
WHAT MAKES ZENSO DIFFERENT?
"HOW MANY REPS?" "HOW MUCH WEIGHT?" "FOR HOW LONG?"
Arbitrary!!! Artists don't care about results they care about process.
WHY TREASURE 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 COUCHES AND CONVENIENCE, 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 humongous 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.
Yes. Nobody knows what is going on here.
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.
RAIN OR SHINE?
Yes. Or hell or high water. Zenso welcomes the myriad of ways nature represents herself.
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?
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.
WAIT, IS "RUNWILD" SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN "ZENSO"?
Oh not really, it's just a condensed or microcosmic version maybe.
HOW CAN I GET THE ZENSO UNMANUAL?
Not yet; it's being written. When done, you can purchase from Butter directly for $13.69 or receive as a gift upon getting into Trouble.
DOES ZENSO HAVE AN ANTHEM?
A what?! Read this if you want some motivational nonsense.
