004: Can You Be Alone Without Feeling Lonely? - intentional solitude to cultivate a deeper relationship with yourself
Today we talk about the importance of carving out alone time in a modern society that continues to get louder & busier. How can we clear the excess static to create space of solitude in a way that is conducive to accelerated self awareness & growth? It is not just about being alone, but being alone with intention. It’s easy to be alone when distracted by external stimulation: stuck on netflix, scrolling through social media. Not only do those activities have an abundance of negative side effects, but they also tend to make us feel even more alone. Beyond living in a world that is consistently becoming louder, faster, & busier, there is the possibility to feel an uncomfortable shame when we’re in solitude. Some of it might relate to our ancestral tribal roots when we relied on social connection for survival; & it may be related to social conditioning as children when popularity often was a measure of your worth. Being alone is an opportunity to expand a greater sense of self awareness & foster a relationship with yourself. Only then can we be clear on what we truly want for ourselves without outside influence & expectations from other people. YOUR INVITATION: Each episode, we invite you to go deeper. With the theme of today's episode, we invite you to create space this week to spend intentional alone time with yourself. If it feels uncomfortable, lean into curiosity. What is making you resist spending quality time with yourself, & nothing else? Some of our favourite ways to get you started: A consciously curated morning routine with stillness, breathing, meditation, or gentle movement.Drinking coffee in silence with your thoughts, or a notebook & pen.Hiking or rucking in the wilderness - use the AllTrails App to explore!Go into nature to calm the nervous system. Do you have favourite ways to spend in solitude? Please share, we would love to add conscious practices to our list! Want to go deeper? We’re a message away. CONNECT WITH US!

003: What if your naked body is the only medicine you need? - using nudity as a tool for self development

003: What if your naked body is the only medicine you need? - using nudity as a tool for self development
What happens when you remove sexual contexts, cultural stigmas, & social judgments from nudity? Today we talk about how to lean into the natural way of being a naked, primal human, diving beneath the surface of Savannah’s nude photography & self portraiture work. When we consciously remove the layers of clothing from our body with intention, it allows us to begin a process to remove emotional layers from the mind. By creating self awareness around our body image & shifting the way we relate to ourselves, we open a path of potential for elevated emotional, mental, & physical well-being.  We touch on mental health & body dysmorphia, & how viewing ourselves - literally - through another lens, can show us an alternate & uncommon perspective of how our body looks.  Taking nakedness beyond the mirror, we expand on our need as humans to connect with nature on a skin-deep level, with an "Earthing" practice.  Find Savannah's nude work at The Beast Goddess.  YOUR INVITATION: Each episode, we invite you to go deeper. With today's episode, your invitation is to dip your toes into mirror work. Create some space for stillness, drop into your body, & come face to face with your reflection. Sit with your imperfections. In the beginning, it's normal to experience feelings of discomfort. The intention is that over time, those feelings will shift into acceptance, & eventually transform into self-love.  If this is new for you, allow yourself to lean into curiosity.

002: Creating Harmony Between the Masculine & Feminine: find freedom through structure

002: Creating Harmony Between the Masculine & Feminine: find freedom through structure
Today, we shine a light on the background of how we chose our name, “Forging Fluidity” - for us, a way to honour the polarities that exist between the Masculine & Feminine, & how the energies show up in our lives. As we go deeper into the layers of masculine & feminine, we explore how discipline & structure create a foundation for freedom & flow - referencing Mike Fitch’s ideology that “structure gives us freedom”; & Jocko Willink’s concept that “discipline equals freedom.” Living in a modern world that celebrates encourages the “hustle & grind” culture that so often leads to burnout & illness, how do we find harmony in maintaining a front-sight focus that has freedom to evolve as we grow? That harmony is easiest to achieve when the energies are woven together, rather than bouncing between extremes. When we take the time to carve out a conscious space to initiate an honest re-evaluation of our goals, it is an act of extreme courage - because many of us do not live in social circles where growth is encouraged or celebrated. To take personal responsibility has two sides: sometimes it means maintaining the discipline to stay true to the path you are walking; other times it means having the wisdom to know when it’s time to recalibrate your compass & pivot. YOUR INVITATION: Each episode, we invite you to go deeper. Create some space for stillness, drop into your body, & ask yourself: What words come to mind when I think of masculine & feminine? How do those energies show up in my daily life? Am I swinging a pendulum between two extremes?If yes - how can I begin to weave them together in my daily life, so that I don’t feel an urge to “escape” my life? Want to go deeper?

001: Pilot Episode - How do we forge fluidity?
Welcome to Forging Fluidity: on navigating primal perspective.  Griffin Coombs and Savannah Wishart come together in organic dialog to weave together various layers of the consciously-lived (and unpretentious) human experience. As coaches and lifelong athletes, we invite you into our personal journeys of transformation, growth, and challenge - how we support ourselves, each other, and our clients in the constant state of change across the full spectrum of life. Connecting with core values around primal health, functional movement, nutrient-dense nutrition, mindset, breath-work, and everything in-between - Griffin and Savannah have forged a strong friendship fueled by deeply powerful conversations around their experiences navigating the modern world with uncommon perspectives. YOUR INVITATION: Each episode, we invite you to interact with us. With today's episode, your invitation is to grab a pen and journal. Create some space for stillness, drop into your body, and ask yourself:  How do you get out of your head and into your body? If you are naturally always in your head, going deeper into your head might not be supportive. Where do you naturally gravitate?  As we discuss morning rituals as part of our Pilot, Griffin emphasizes that as someone who naturally spends a lot of time in his headspace, he gets more value out of prioritizing physical movement.  On the other hand, as a writer, Savannah uses words and a pen to pull thoughts out of her head, allowing for a lighter energy.  Not sure where to get started in dropping down into your body? Contact either of us to get started!  CONNECT WITH US!
