Back to Basics

It’s nice to take a step back and reflect on whats good. Gaia University has been helping me learn and unlearn lots about myself and also society. I learn’t about a recurring theme of mine relating to overcommitments and overambitious expectations of others. Revelations like this for me are priceless, I haven’t felt this much clarity since finishing Edkhart toll’s – “A New Earth”.

I’m no longer working with Taino Farm as the aim at the farm has been restructured to ‘eco-hotel’, and the focus is now on finding a Manager, a job that doesn’t reflect my vision and passion. There may be opportunities to work together again for permaculture eduction, but either way, I have inherited a large chunk of my time and mental space back to focus on my own path.

Ada and I have been putting a lot of love in to our home forest garden “Dharma Farm” at Cabarete Football/Camping¬†and waking up to that each day feels great.

I realise apart from a few projects, designs and workshops, the next part of my journey is very much related to focussing on my degree, networking and being the change I want to see.

I’ve learnt so much in the last year, it’s almost overwhelming to think about. I don’t want that to stop, but staying true to myself, my intuitions and getting back to basics is definitely going to help the lessons be enjoyable and sustainable.
