Awesome. Yeah. When I am dancing is one of the only place I don't think about anything else. The Zen of something is being fully present with whatever that thing is. Truly being there in it. Therefor, when I am dancing, I am Dance.
Thank you Guava, yes, you are right, family is very important. I guess it means different things for different people as well... Having chosen to live in a multi-cultural couple (2 persons from different continents) on my side means that at least one side of the family is always far, so you are forced to accept the distance somehow... Keep in touch then, at least you could come for a holiday ;) Now, just keep in mind that we don't have the final land yet, so we cannot take bookings at this stage :D
Good to know, GuavaGirl, I wish you all the best in your search of such a community. I think you are blessed to be in the US as there are quite a few popping up in this country! If for some reason you changed your mind about crossing man-made boundaries, follow our project on http://bit.ly/terradosol ;)
oh! by the way. if you can, try and buy your hydro kit off of craigs list or something like that. the equipment is really over priced for what it really is. I am sure yo have seen, most of them are made out of PVC and regular buckets.
I just bought a rather large hydroponics kit. all I need to get it running is the growing medium, nutrients, and lights. its essentially 6 buckets attached to a reservoir the size of a laundry hamper. I havent gotten anything started yet, but I will definatley let you know! right now, my goal would be get as many calories as I can out of it. So I think I will experiment with melons, and some rich greens like kale and chard. It has been challenging to find out what plants can be used. I live by myself so I am willing to sacrifice the space where my dinner table goes. so thats about 7' x 4' of space.
Thank you for befriending me and for your connection here as well as on fb. Your interests are quite fascinating, and you seem to have wealth of intellectual information and knowledge. What motivated you to pursue this way of life leading to optimum health and nutrition? You are great!!
I was looking at the Vipassana course schedule recently and then reread an old post of yours. I thought I'd give you a heads up...May is now open for application! :) They fill quick and you can always cancel if need be.
