PRESENTATION: Humans in a State of Flux: Arcs and Circles in a World of Straight Lines and Right Angles

For all of human history up until the last several millennia, there have been oscillating patterns deeply ingrained into all aspects of our lives: daily rhythms, cycles of the moon, the flux of seasons, the exhilarating expansion and subsequent grounding contraction of the scale of our world across the course of our individual lifetimes.

In this presentation, Dallas will present a new model for understanding how these undeniable, repeating patterns and subtle biological influences (sometimes called “intuition”) can be understood differently, respected as informative and correct, and then leveraged to make the most of living in a world that tries to flatten those ancient, elegant oscillations into straight lines and right angles. In short, he will give you new tools to understand your health and human experience, then give you a way to move forward with simplicity and with less constant struggle to fit a round peg into a square hole. It’s a message of simplicity, of connection, and of hope.


  • Identify aspects of their own health affected by ignoring the intrinsic oscillations in their biology.
  • Identify at least one area of their life where their intuition has been right about how they should live.
  • Create an action plan in order to immediately improve one aspect of their life by realigning it with their biological reality.
