7. ATW : I am a piece of toilet paper… what about you?

Version française A very simple metaphor for a change… I have a story that has nothing to do with cooking but I’d like to share it very badly. It took me time to be ready to write it as I didn’t know how important it was for me but when I wrote my article (only in french sorry) about how I feel after 8 month of travel and that I used the words “I’m almost ready”, I suddenly realised how this...

Never work again… Dream or reality?

Version française When permaculture and natural building are two answers to take back our freedom… This is a very promising title but it’s a very true one if you consider, as I do, that : “Freedom is the ability to anyone to freely manage his own time, skills and energy”. My one month internship at Gaia ashram made this freedom become very real all of a sudden by giving me the basic knowledge in natural...

Living in a community… always the same story !!!

Version française My major learning during my month at Gaia ashram When I try to think about it, it seems that my main discovery has nothing to do with gardening, permaculture or natural building. I learned about the society and the persons making it. And I’m still very surprised to realize that we’ve been able to recreate a small society with only 23 persons and in only 4 weeks where no one was very happy, satisfied or...

Ashram, sect, school, cult…?

I expected to learn a lot about permaculture and meditation as I thought an ashram was a school with buddhist rituals but I ended up learning much more about myself,...
