“in the dark silence lives the heart of healing. There is no healer. We cannot do anything but bring our wounded to the Beloved and lay them on the altar. There’s nothing so soft, non-meddling, and sweetly soothing as dark, quiet, depthless Being. There we may notice just a bit that we don’t have to send our energy into protecting and functioning on top of where we left ourselves. That we can curl inside and let Being have the quiet, deep dark rest of dying, of giving up, of sinking. The dark is our friend. The dark is our heart.” -Jeannie Zandi
The Polish Ambassador’s fall Permaculture Action Tour is bringing together permaculture educators and community organizers to inspire and educate people about how we can make a shift towards a more sustainable and regenerative way of living, and channel this energy into local project builds in each of the cities we visit—getting people to take action to build the world they want to see.
Then there is this music producer and activist “The Polish Ambassador” who in 2014 went on the “Permaculture Action Tour” throughout the US crowdfunded on indiegogo. The tour included doing workshops and events at various locations teaching people about permaculture / organic gardening & building up new gardens as well as planting trees with the help of many people who volunteered to be part of this movement.
“Pushing Through the Pavement
The goal of the Permaculture Acton Tour is to inspire and empower people with the tools and know how of co-creating a sustainable and regenerative world.
This tour will be one step of many in making our cities greener, healthier, and happier places to live through the action of community.”
All around me I see people speaking up and spreading wisdoms through music and art. It gives me such hope!
I can envision a hip hop woodstock where people spread love and unity
and awareness on environmental and social issues. I’m convinced there is more people
out there doing this kind of work these days.
Do you know any other such projects of people raising awareness in such a cool and creative way? Feel free to share some with me!
