Welcome to Exuberant Animal
Our bodies are tuned for nature, vigorous physicality and tribal connection. At our core, we are healthy, vigorous and intelligent animals, but today we live in an incredibly challenging world. Exuberant Animal offers an experiential answer to the challenge of the human predicament. Our training is meaningful, extremely relevant and transformative. Exuberant Animal training provides a path to health as it helps us make peace with the modern world.

Climate change, habitat destruction and species extinctions threaten our biosphere. Political chaos, inequality and extremism wreak havoc with our societies and culture. Obesity, diabetes, depression and stress-related disorders cause our bodies pain and unhappiness. As the noted ecopsychologist Theodore Roszak put it, “The earth hurts, and we hurt with it.”
Our bodies are the canaries in the coal mine of the modern world. Health and medical industries focus on the well-being of the canary, but miss the larger message. Something is tragically wrong with the way we’re living. We need another way.
The Art is Long is an exploration of the “long body,” the totality of our individual bodies plus our life-supporting systems of habitat, tribe and culture. Being healthy is just a beginning.
