Beyond the norm: Tryb’s vision

🎙️ Tryb seeks to extend conversation beyond daily life, engaging with the profound, the mystical, modern life and science. It emphasises new living systems and alternative modalities that lead to a more fulfilling existence.

🔄 Traditional societal structures are questioned, suggesting that alternative modalities offer a more purposeful, intentional and connected way to navigate life.

🌬️ Breathwork is promoted as a legal and accessible modality to enhance emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. It involves controlled breathing, promoting health, stress management, and spiritual awakening.

🍄 Psychedelics, while less accessible and not for everyone, are recognised for their therapeutic benefits when used in safe and controlled environments, often leading to personal insights, emotional release, and an enhanced sense of connection.

🧭 Being part of a community or tribe is presented as a crucial part of the journey to self-awareness, fostering improved mental health, resilience, and a deeper sense of belonging. The journey isn’t a competition, but a unique path towards self-growth and understanding.

Greetings! In our first piece of content, we’re diving into the vision for Tryb.

With Tryb, we want to embark on a conversation that extends beyond our day-to-day lives and delves into modern life, the profound, the mystical, reconnecting with nature, and science.

We’re going to talk about:

  • What makes us human
  • What genuinely makes us men in 2023 and not simply the portrayal we see through some individuals, media channels or groups
  • How can we tackle mental health
  • Living a fulfilling life
  • Being there to support our friends and family

Along with that will be the exploration of new systems of living and alternative modalities that can usher in a transformative journey towards a more fulfilling existence.

To begin with, the voice of Tryb will be that of the two founders, Paul and Steve, but that will soon develop to include experts in the topics we cover.

Importantly, we also want to hear from you and discover what your understanding of being alive and healthy in 2023 looks like.

The big question: What’s the point?

Traditionally, society has provided us with a playbook of life:

  • Get an education
  • Secure a job,
  • Have a family
  • Retire…

…and then… well, the end of the road is just around the corner.

But is that all there is? Are we doomed to merely exist rather than truly live? Is the meaning of life only to be found in a Douglas Adams book?

The short answer is yes, no, and no.

Through Tryb, we’ll take a deep dive into those questions – although that’ll likely be the last Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy reference – and look at alternative ways of living our day-to-day lives.

Through this, we hope to have a deeper understanding of who we all are as a connected community and as happy, thriving individuals who can positively impact the people around us.

New modalities

By new modalities, we mean practices, methods and ways of thinking that are only sometimes correctly understood in the Western World.

Exploring these new modalities isn’t some bohemian escape or rebellious urge to break free from societal norms. It’s a genuine quest for self-understanding and a spiritual journey towards a more harmonious, meaningful and nature-conscious existence.

We will explore, but for a minute, if you consider two modalities we mention in our home page mission statementbreathwork and psychedelics – we have two intrinsically connected modalities but with two very different barriers to entry.

Breathwork, for instance, is a practice that uses specific breathing techniques to promote emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. It’s legal and anyone can start today.

You may think, “It’s just breathing, right?” Well, not quite.

It’s about conscious and controlled breathing, a simple act that can pave the way towards improved health, stress management and even spiritual awakening. Connecting you with your inner self, inviting a profound sense of tranquillity and clarity.

On the other hand, psychedelics are not as widely available and are not for everyone – not all of the modalities we talk about here will be, including ourselves.

The power of plants

Psychedelics – or, to give it another name, plant medicine – are often associated with countercultural movements but are being rediscovered and respected for their therapeutic benefits.

In safe and controlled environments, guided by skilled practitioners when needed, psychedelics can enable experiences that often lead to personal insight, emotional release and an enhanced sense of connection.

Building a community

At the heart of what we want to achieve with Tryb is connection.

We can achieve connection by building a community of people, practitioners, experts and those looking to learn about alternative states.

We aim to do this online and, importantly, in person too. Tryb is all about connection, and what better way to do that than by spending time with each other in the flesh.

As we explore these alternatives, it’s crucial to remember that the journey to self-awareness isn’t a competition; it’s a deeply personal and unique path. 

It’s not about reaching a destination but engaging in a continuous process of self-growth, discovery, and understanding.

As Steve Jobs once said, 

The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. 

Until next time, folks. Stay curious and stay connected.
