Under-the-Waterfall Technique


After a two-hour run with Doug on little-traveled trails through second-growth redwoods on east flank of the mountain, I took the waterfall treatment:

Remove all clothes, lower self into pool, come up under waterfall, let it hit you on the head a while, maybe less than 10 seconds under water.

Emerge chi-ified for high energy rest of day. It’s free!

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. I do this, but with cold showers in the morning, lights up all my nerves like a Christmas tree! Wish I had a natural waterfall near by like you do.
