We come into a place between stories where there is emptiness. In that emptiness, there is something that has never been born before. We aren’t acting out of habit or patterns. We are truly gifted such a potent time to make shifts that are carving new pathways to brighter future. We are able to act from the essence of what arose in the emptiness. A future that is more aligned with our passions and our hearts. A life that represents our individuality from it’s core. … More The Art of Non-Doing
Permaculture is rooted in relationships. Our relationship to Earth, our community, our natural resources, our food, our local economy, and the web of life. Relationships are a vital resource that holds our livelihood together. Everything within Nature is interconnected and as we allow ourselves to live lives that are integrated into the webs of life, we experience the relationships that exist all around us. We live in a way that is holistic, whole-systems, and connected, rather than the Western lifestyle that is rooted in individualism, isolation, and competition. … More Permaculture and Relationships
The thing is… I couldn’t have planned it. I didn’t even know how this would happen. Through the unfolding process, I have come to understand that the how is never our business. I set my intention for what I wanted my life to look like, not really having a clue on how to get there, and I pursued opportunities. I trusted the path, even at times when it was so unclear. When I look back, there were so many moments of fear, especially with leaving everything behind and not having a plan. We simply aren’t taught to trust. It’s something we either learn from our parents early on or we learn it on our own. … More How Did I Get Here?
It seems these days the realms of permaculture, sustainability, regenerative, mindfulness, spirituality, new-age, and higher consciousness are on the rise. I’m not sure if it correlates with the evolution of my journey, but it seems it’s rapidly growing now more than ever. I suppose you could say it’s really trending. However, within these realms, are we truly taking the teachings and embodying them into our daily lives? Are we just talking the talk or truly walking the walk? Who are we showing up as? … More Who Are You Showing Up As?
You can’t work on an empty stomach! I’m finding it is incredibly synchronistic how these principles have been lining up with the teachings I’ve needed during the month and the theme that’s occurred during the month. This month I’ve been focusing on obtaining a yield from the farm I’m currently interning at in Maui. One … More Obtain a Yield! Permaculture Principle 3
This permaculture principle challenge was exactly what I needed this month… To take a step back from doing and just be. By doing this, I felt myself fully embracing the present moment – letting go of the memories or stories of the past and imaginary visions of the future. While it’s great to hold aspirations … More Observe & Interact – Permaculture Principle 1
For the past couple of years, off-grid living and tiny house living has been so appealing to me. I see it as a powerful stance against our consumerist and materialistic society by taking the power in our hands and choosing to align ourselves with lifestyles that align with our morals and values. Sure, it seems to be a huge “counter-culture” movement or “alternative living,” but I see much deeper value in the movement than that… Our experience off-grid in a yurt during the winter really allowed me to dive into the beauty of what it’s truly like to live simply. … More Momo’s Yurt Visit
