Dave and I have taken the first step to changing our lives. By creating this website, we hope to inspire others to rediscover who they really are by pursuing their passions. We have always been marching to the beat of our own drum, living life alternatively from mainstream. We know by experience that it’s not always the most comfortable shoe to be in. However, we feel that it is important to stay true to oneself. Taking Gandhi’s words to heart ” Be the change you want to see in the world” by actively taking hold and acknowledging that we have created our current reality. Be it pleasant or not, we are in complete control to create a new reality that speaks to us more profoundly. COMMUNITY is key, often a BIG part of what is missing in our personal, daily, fractal lives, a feeling of being part of a whole. Seven years ago, we decided to leave the city life, our established employments, our extended family and move 3 hours away into the countryside. We wanted to give our children a slower paced childhood where we could live through the season on a more rooted level and reconnect with nature. It has been a wonderful experience! We’ve faced many emotions, and overcome some difficulties, isolation being one of them. All said and done, it was all worth it.
Now we are gearing ourselves up to new adventures…
1.Of world travel, learning , exploring and meeting people and places part of this beautiful planet.
2. Building a solar passive sustainable home on a shoe string budget
3. Sharing our experience and day to day life of Waldorf inspired homeschool
4. Offering tutorials on beautiful handwork crafts
5.Creating a global online and offline community of like-minded people, who share our views and values
We are constantly redefining who we are, where we are going and how to get there. I guess this is needed in an ever-so quickly changing world.
I would like to invite you to post and share your story to inspire others that living outside the box may not be as frightening as it may seem. We do not need to follow in our inherited footsteps. The earth needs pioneers and trailblazers more then ever. Be brave, share your gift and shine your unique brilliance!
Yours in gratitude,
David, Tristan, Evan and Owen
