Since then I have been caring for and cultivating the terraced gardens around Lake 1 – the first lake we created in Tamera with Sepp Holzer.
My 30+ years of experience of living and working with nature and humans led me to “bioenergetic gardening”. I usually teach it through month long education times during the gardening season in Tamera. Now I am called to branch out, to offer workshops in other places in Europe.
- How can we elevate the identity of the gardener in cultures where it is considered a ′profession for the poor′?
- How can we develop new tools as healing bridges linking the body of the earth and the body of the gardener? And how can bioenergetic gardening help to create healing foods?
- How can gardening be integrated into a social space for all people to find their unique contact with the garden?
I developed a meditative and contemplative spiritual practice to balance my work and whole life. A part of my ritual is “Ho′oponopono” (forgiveness practice originating in Hawaii) and the universal Jesus Prayer. Yoga teachers regularly visit Tamera and have complemented and furthered my education.
