Well, I was working as a companion care provider in Minneapolis. I knew that once I turned 24 I would qualify for adequate financial aid assistance to go back to school fulltime. So, I got online and Googled Sustainable Living. I knew that’s what I wanted to do- I just didn’t know there was a school for it. Two schools came up; one was in California and the other was MUM. MUM seemed more established and better developed. Also, it offered a vegetarian lifestyle and emphasis on meditation which really appealed to me. I visited in February and was here the following January.
The best it has ever been in my life. I am a vegetarian; I try to eat all organic, local if available, and not a lot of dairy.
My interests include; community development, environmental sustainability, outdoor education, spiral dynamics, psychology and environmental psychology. My hobbies include; journaling, painting, bike riding, meditating, hatha and kundalini yoga, being outside, reading, potlucks, campfires, dancing and shamanistic ritual.
My passions include evolution, the ability to grow, life supporting life, learning.
I just did my five year plan so this is a good question! Hopefully in five years I will be an integral part of a non-profit organization, or have founded a non-profit organization, where I can practice outdoor education or environmental psychology. I want to work with people seeking a deeper, healing connection with their environment. I’d like to reintroduce them to their biological community on a deeper, energetic or soul level and heal their relationship with nature.
Also I want to be a homesteader. I want to take care of some land, start a market garden and/or CSA, and have community involvement. Maybe care for some honey bees and permaculture guilds.
Yoga, I eat well, I take care of myself and get a lot of sleep and I always take time to do things I enjoy like make cards for people, artwork, take walks and hang out with friends.
