About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To contribute to reunion. Reunion in human relationships and reunion with nature.

ABOUT ME

I love recreating in the outdoors. I am an avid cyclist, enjoy paddling, hiking, etc. I spent a year participating in an adventure education program leading kid on wilderness trips. I'm interested sustainable living experiments. Right now I'm into natural building (e.g. cob, straw bale). Looking for opportunities to learn about gardening/permaculture. I'm excited and eagerly learning about nonviolent communication. I think permaculture and NVC are two powerful ways to contribute to the theme of reunion.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in the notion of interconnection/interbeingness and the NVC concept of universal human needs and trying to see the humanness in everyone. Life reaching for life.
