“In the adventure known as life, there are some that live it vicariously and enjoy the ride from the safety of an armchair, and that’s good. There are those who have a few chances to realize incredible and life changing experiences and though they don’t repeat them they carry with them a growth in personal philosophy for the rest of their lives. And there are those for whome a taste is never enough. For whome the lust for adventure is nearly insatiable. And if you add to that the overwhelming desire to create, and to share, then you get where I reside. For the end of one adventure, only signifies the beginning of another” ~ Les Stroud
Papua New Guinea episode where “In the adventure known as life” quote comes from.
Farming, medicine and athletics are what we do. Success in each has demanded two attributes above all else, impeccability and innovation. The Alfa Vedic system delivers both.
WELCOME TO ALFA VEDIC
As the founder of Alfa Vedic I extend a most warm welcome to the AV community, and those of you exploring this site for the first time. Alfa Vedic is a departure from the norm, so you need to know a bit about us to get started.
Alfa Vedic is five decades in the making, a culmination of our experience in athletics, medicine and farming. These endeavors have become both vocation, and lifestyle, while providing a vehicle for our present mission. Our team is now multi-generational, continuing the exploration with new eyes and talents, but never losing the thread.
Alfa Vedic is a system, a living technology. I was fortunate to have learned from the best. Many were icons in their respective fields, and it’s now my responsibility to pay it forward. I mirrored their actions; learn, practice and observe. Alfa Vedic is the result.
