You are more than just our supporters; you are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, adventurers, gardeners, survivors, athletes, doctors, service members, and friends. You are the backbone of what brings dreams like Goshen into a reality.
In order to be on the same page, we would like to share some of the resources that have inspired the making of Goshen thus far! Our recommended books discuss topics of health related to indigenous diet, barefoot running, and living in community. We read them from cover to cover and they transformed the way we eat and exercise. We hope you walk away from reading wearing Vibram five-finger "barefoot" shoes like we did!
The Jungle Effect, By Daphne Miller, M.D.
“In this bracingly hopeful and eminently practical book, Daphne Miller shows us how we can bring the wisdom of traditional diets to our own plates, in the interest of both our health and our pleasure. The Jungle Effect is a fascinating, useful and important book.” - Michael Pollan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food
Born to Run, By Christopher McDougall
“Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world's greatest distance runners (the Tarahumara) and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong...For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it.” - Christopher McDougall
Vibram five-fingers shoes: minimalist running shoes that flex with the natural movement of your feet and actually help strengthen muscles in your feet and legs!
“The Tarahumara essentially run barefoot or in sandals (called huaraches) and experience very little in the way of injury. Over the years, running shoes have become more and more cushioned with more and more high-tech gadgetry attached. Rather than improving our runs, these developments seem to have worsened them.”- Chris McDougall
We are excited to be moving into the pre-production stage of our next feature documentary, Goshen. This stage involves crucial foundation building steps including, creating social media tools, website development, writing video treatments and forming alliances. Most importantly, we are seeking your participation in Goshen film's dynamic community network. Please subscribe to stay tuned with exclusive updates, including behind the scenes video footage, news updates, opportunities and more! We love to hear your input and engage in discussions with you from the beginning through the final stages of production! We will continuing to share more resources in the following months. Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
