Returning to the Way of Nature

A presentation and discussion about the state of modern society, the destruction of the environment and how we could live in a very different way. A way that is good for ourselves, our children, our human communities and the community of all life on Earth.

Many of us feel a sense of unease about the world today. We feel anxiety for the future, a future where we don’t see opportunities to live healthy fulfilled lives for ourselves and where we see each generation leaving to their children a world in poorer condition. We feel a great sadness for the injustice of our societies and for the way in which our way of life is destroying Earth. And we feel helpless to do anything about it.

In this event lead by Dion Workman and Takuya Sasa, we look at the root causes of these issues and discuss practical solutions. We will look at ecology, technology, economics, community, education, food, health and energy. We will examine many aspects of the world today and ask how can we create the world that our hearts long for. What can we do as individuals and as communities.

Our hearts tell us that another world is possible. It is time to start living in that new world.

Dion Workman was born in Aotearoa/New Zealand and now lives in Izu-hanto. He is a natural farmer, wild food forager, permaculturalist, deep ecologist and writer.

Takuya Sasa was born in Tokyo. He has traveled extensively in 60 countries including one year traveling by horse through central America. Much of this time he has spent learning about the indigenous cultures of the countries he travels in. Takuya also spent one year in Aoteroa/New Zealand learning Permaculture.

Returning to the Way of Nature

現代社会のあり方や環境問題についてプレゼンテーションをおこない、話し合います。

そこから、私たち自身、これからの子供達、人間社会、そして地球上のあらゆる生物の共同体にとってのより良い暮らしを考えます。
多くの人が、今日の世界に不安を感じています。
健康で満ち足りた未来の生活を想像することは難しく、私たちの行いが子供達へ今よりもさらに環境の悪い世界を残すことになるかもしれません。
今回のワークショップでは、これらの原因の根源となっているものを探り、より実践的な答えを話し合おうというものです。
話の内容は、環境、経済、技術、社会、教育、食事、健康、エネルギーと、様々な要素を検討していきます。
このように、今日の世界を様々な角度から考察し、どうしたら、私たちの心が本当に望んでいるような世界になるのかを考えます。
さて、私たちは、個人として、コミュニティーとして何ができるのでしょうか。
心の奥では感じているのではないでしょうか、別の世界があることを。
今がまさに、新しい世界が始まる時です。

    Hello Dion-san,
    I am sorry that I couldn’t be there. Hope it’ll be in big success.
    By the way, I started growing crops on my land as I did in your place, just weed and mulch. (Fortunately,I had heaps of weed there) It looks going well so far, the vegetables sprouting and growing upright coverd with nice and warm mulch. Now I am getting confident I can keep it going that way. I think I must be one of most influenced people by you. Thank you.

    Dion, how good of you! Keep at it. I’ve got kids so I’m basically grounded to the land here with them, and can’t really move about the island. I did hold a workshop at my place, but nobody came.

    Cheers,

    ken
