forest-location-independent-tnForest: Hi, my name is Forest Schrodt and I have a company called Liquid Fire Mantra, a ritual firedance performance group and visionary jewelry company. I’ve been doing the nomadic lifestyle since 1996 and I guess that’s sixteen years or eighteen years, something like that. I’ve been doing the gypsy and nomadic lifestyle for a very long time, travelling up and down primarily the West Coast United States going to music festivals, vending my designs that I have produced in Bali, and also doing performance art. And I’ve been on this alternative path for quite some time, and it’s been great to explore and see a lot of places and meet a lot of interesting people and a lot of creative inspiration constantly coming through.

The trade-off is the challenge of finding a healthy biorhythm with not necessarily having like a home for a long period of time where you can kind of drop in with the community and have like build on a rhythmical cycle. But it has a larger biorhythm of this cycle, yearly cycle of going to one place to the next and having communities there that have been developed for many years. So there’s always this kind of like balancing of more traditional way of living and living in one area and having a house, having a biorhythm, getting up at the same time, going to sleep at the same time generally as opposed to having the freedom in the nomadic lifestyle of not having to pay large amounts of money on rent, but also not having a necessarily this defined biorhythm which, for me, as I’ve gone older is probably the biggest challenge of maintaining a nomadic lifestyle.

What is This? is a resource for anyone who is attracted to the location independent lifestyle. From Music Festival goers to world travelers, if you want to expand your circle of friends; knowledge of places, people and things; and increase the potential for income you can earn from anywhere in the world, then this is a stellar resource for you.

What is the Matrix? 

As I've traveled to transformational music festivals (transitory towns), and to pockets of consciousness around the world, I've noticed that many of the people I am interacting with have a noticeably different quality about them.  

As I observed this over time, as people came and went, an understanding crystalized for me that we Conscious Nomads are creating a new virtual territory (an energetic field, a collective, a matrix, a hologram) that extends beyond nation-state borders and historically accepted boundaries, and encompasses the entire planet.
