    Organic, non linear and ever changing experience of WHO I AM...

    I AM a steward and Lover of

    SOIL: Sacred Organic Interconnected Life

    I AM a living expression of Permaculture

    I AM a Visionary and edge worker

    I AM a WILD midwife of diversity for the New humanity

     

    This page is to launch my new adventure of SOUL fully SOIL. I have spent the last two years without a sense of how to best express permaculture as I "Do" it. I have experienced all kinds of permaculture design methods, practices and philosophies and none have felt fully ME.

    SOUL fully SOIL is more than a typical Permaculture service. It is a reflection of the gifts and abilities that I AM as an awakened visionary who knows herself to be an aspect of Gaia (mother earth).

    My "business" model is based solely on who I AM and what I am lit up in doing. My passion and gift is growing SOIL. SOIL as Sacred Organic Interconnected Life.

    All LIFE on this planet is dependant upon the diversity and non separation of each part of an eco system. The more connections, the stronger the eco system is. The more diverse and varied the occupants of the eco system are, the more resilient and anti fragile the system is.

    SOIL is the most beautiful metaphor for how I see my world. All species living and thriving with each other closely. There is abundance, growth and resiliency for everyone when we each embrace and foster our own unique skills and passions. An earth worm acts and does as an earthworm does. A Nematode acts and does as a Nematode does. A butterfly, bacteria, fungi etc...When are you most lit up?

    SOUL fully SOIL is an invitation to look at the resiliency, growth, regeneration, and collaboration, with our original "mother", Gaia (Planet earth), with a connected and sacred lens. When we see Gaia through a connected and non separate lens, we start to see patterns, behaviours, and strategies that become our answers for these troubling times and environmental issues.

    Everything that the "earth" is and does is perfect. There are NO exceptions to this. It is my belief that when I embrace the SOIL as it is part of my own BEING, I act with her best interests at heart and this offers the three basic "rules" of permaculture: earth care, people care, fair share.

    I am here to create beautiful collaborative designs that Re connect both the land and the communities of people/species who live on it. I am the invitation for potent, necessary conversation and exploration around Urban Farming, reciprocal use of resources, and the renewal of ancient wisdom and accelerated consciousness. I hear the call to Re-wild and re-connect the experience of regenerative food systems, perpetual growth of SOIL, and the blossoming of diversity.

    Day to Day this "business" model will look different. I may plan and execute the building of a community garden, co-create a herb spiral/ yoga workshop, plant a food forrest, upkeep a local food bank garden, travel to Hawaii to engage is sacred water ceremony, partake in a sweat lodge, host women's gatherings, collaborate on a Skype call with the Rural Consciousness Project, or choose to garden with my neighbours. Regardless of the task, the intention and underlying gift is SOUL fully SOIL. I am present, mindful and engaging with others who are called to create a New World thru the expansion of SOIL ( Sacred Organic Interconnected Life).
     

    Fuzzy "money" and "hours of operation" details..

     

    If you are called to collaborate or would like just a bit more clarity about what I will or won't "do", please feel free to connect with me at the bottom of the page. I understand that this may seem a little unclear and a-typical of other "business's" but I am willing to create, co-create, host, hold space for, engage in, consult with....anything that moves me.

     

    You will not find direct fees and a clear time table for hours of operation here... A moving changing force creates her own schedule and prices based on reciprocity. There will always be those who wish to "write a cheque" and that is wonderful, but I believe strongly in a gift economy and am looking for a deeper and more meaningful experience of "money". So, prices and fees will always vary depending on each individual experience and are ALWAYS open for honest and connected conversation.

     

    Some of what I have created in the past looks like this: Herb Spiral building, compost, mulching, water saving techniques, tea drying/blending workshops, permaculture as a way of BEing conversation, renaissance women, Rural Consciousness Project gatherings, Regeneration of SOUL and SOIL experience, full and New Moon Red Tents, Gluten and Dairy Free cooking classes, Clean eating and cleansing cooking classes, Canning and food preservation classes and community work B's

     

    So..Call me, email me, message me, instagram me a picture, come to my home.....whatever....just connect soon.

    This is a 3 part series of workshops based around the Planning, Planting, Harvesting, Drying and usage of Herbs for Teas and medicines.

    Wel-Systems Intitute

    Lives transforming, Worlds emerging

    The WEL-Systems Institute is at the core of an evolving global collective; built on the strength of the individuality of its participants and a desire to further evolve in the company of others on a similar journey of discovery.

    When we created WEL-Systems® in 1990, we had no idea how quickly it would grow and evolve; and how profoundly people's lives would be renewed, enriched and revitalized because of it. Today, we are pleased and honored to know that we are leaders in the global movement for human evolution with the WEL-Systems® body of knowledge as the preferred gateway for the acceleration longed for and required in our world, at this time

    The WEL-Systems body of knowledge is a startlingly powerful and compelling invitation to become a living expression of the transformation yearned for, by so many.

    Passion, Presence Purpose

    Passion, presence, truth, purpose … life. This is why we’re here—in this one body at this time in history. We are meant to be alive, awake, wild, untamed, free and activated! Anything less is an existence, not a life.

    As a passionate activist for animals, the Earth and accelerated cultural evolution, I’ve dedicated my life to ensuring that there are no wasted moments. This has taught me the delicate balance between being and doing.

    My mission is to create a movement of cultural revolutionaries who celebrate their birthright: simplicity, passion, kindness, creativity, authentic expression, and a purpose-driven life outside of the stifling confines of today’s dysfunctional, distracted … and less face it, insane cultural mindset. By shifting the paradigm from head to heart we can collectively co-create a more passionate, compassionate, loving, and interconnected world that excludes no living being.

     Photography to me

    ...is not only for revisiting moments in time

    Photography is physical, it's a workout, it's playful, fun

    Photography to me is an invitation to TRUE SELF expression
    ...on both sides of the lense!

    Red Tent, ancient expression and redefinition of "motherhood"

    passionate mother of two amazing boys who have been my biggest invitations to explore more of who I am. Although most days I feel like I am just winging it, I now trust that it will all unfold exactly as it should. And from there I will continue to create my holographic universe in a way that is necessary for my SELF and the expression of my being to evolve into who I was meant to be in this world. My hopes are that this blog will help move me further along in that direction.

    Eat from LOVE and LOVE what you Eat

    I guess the first thing to know about me is that one of the things I love most is to empower others to jump into the world of vegan living with a smile on their face, joy in their heart and a full and happy belly.

    I have been enjoying a vegan lifestyle for the past 15 years and along the way I have learned so much about how to shop, how to make delicious and nourishing meals, how to socialize and happily attend non-vegan functions, how to travel in a world where veganism is still catching on and how to tap into the joy I feel when I stop and realize that my daily choices are having no negative impact on animals, a reduced impact on the earth and a dramatically positive impact on my body. I am excited to have a place to share all of this experience with you so you feel empowered for your own journey into clean plant-based living.

    From the moment I first watched this video, I knew something MORE. I felt the ancient awakening of star dust inside of me. I will come back to this video often as it offers a reminder of the paradigm I choose to live in.

    My Carbon Hunters

    One of the most important chores that I do in the fall is capture all of the wasted "carbon" in my area ( leaves, straw, grass clippings, fall pruned wood chips). This resource is essential for my gardens and composting efforts during the winter. The additional Carbon added back into the SOIL of my garden provides habitat, food, microbes and structure. The carbon also assures me that my compost will stay at the regulated heat in order to kill pathogens,disease and weed seed.
