Sustainable Living - the passion, the purpose and the practice

How to live more in harmony with our earth is a lesson we all need to learn. Climate change calls us to act now.
I founded an ecovillage in 1987 with a vision to experiment with sustainable community living practices. In 2010 I became the founding president of the Hawaii Sustainable Community Alliance. My book "Jugglng Fire in the Jungle" and published articles describe my thirty years studying and living radical sustainability.
Let me know what you want to learn and I'll design a fascinating customized program for you.
I have a masters in Education and a wealth of experience to share.

About Me

I've been a teacher all my adult life but I've lived an alternative out-of-the box lifestyle. I've traveled a lot and lived 42 years outside of the UK. I originally taught in regular schools but quickly progressed to creating my own circus school and sustainability project where I taught many skills to kids of all ages. I especially enjoyed sharing my passion for sustainability with the several hundred young adult interns who spent weeks or months experiencing life in our ecovillage in Hawaii. I've written two books and many articles about my community development days and look forward to sharing more about how, why and what to do to live more sustainably. I will customize every course I lead to suit the needs and interests of each student who I work with.

In 1987 I founded the Bellyacres artistic ecovillage with a vision to experiment with sustainable community living practices. We started with raw jungle and had no potable water, no grid power, no telephone service, lots of rocks, and very little soil. We had to learn how build, grow and produce power all off grid and all with a very low budget. Our core values were based around the pursuit of an organic and renewable energy lifestyle using permaculture principles. However, there was a whole lot more.

Through hard work and trial and error we developed sustainable systems for food, energy, transport, water, construction and most important for community connection. We were described as one of the most sustainable communities in the USA in 2010. We accommodated as many as 40 residents and in 2007 built the Seaview Performance Arts Center for Education which quickly evolved to become a multi-purpose community center hosting two public schools, two weekly farmers markets, a wide range of performance arts programs and performances plus community meetings and events.

In 2012 the Hawaii Governor said “Bellyacres encourages renewable non-petroleum based energy, sustainable food cultivation and resource reprocessing and serves as the gathering place for a community of 1200 homes and 3000 residents.” U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye commended Bellyacres for “providing a positive, enriching and safe place that helps motivate the entire community with a focus on self sufficiency and self improvement.”
I will share with you all I know after living 30 years in an ecovillage and transforming a local community on a remote pacific island. I believe that ecovillages and small-scale communities through their own radical sustainable experimentation can serve as sustainability demonstration models for rural and urban communities in the coming years of climate change.

Personal Development Coaching to becoming the best version of yourself.
Are you drifting through life without a clear objective? Are you fed up with your lot in life, Job, marriage? I'm a Personal Development Freak. When I left school I was a complete introvert with absolutely no social skills. I was small, weak, slow, shy, introverted, and I realised quite quickly that I needed to work twice as hard as everybody else to be as good as everybody else. so I worked bloody hard and put myself in the most uncomfortable situations to get the maximum benefit. I'm now a extrovert who has worked in many countries as an IT Consultant earning a very good living. I'm also a standup comedian and world traveler ( been around the world twice, I love travelling and meeting new people ) I can make friends with strangers very quickly. I'm always learning and developing where ever I go. I'm also an author published 1 book on amazon. I've done the Millionaire Mind Intensive and the Tony Robbins UPW/DWD. Yoga, Vipassana meditation, Pranayama, Wim Hof breathing, Cold therapy. intermittent fasting, keto, Journey Intensive, Holotropic breathwork.

Online class for nutrition, from understanding to practice! Because knowledge is power.
First thing we do when we wake up: we eat breakfast! Therefore, nutrition the first topic of every day in our life. Despite nutrition knowledge and its importance started to spread in society, it is quite often difficult to separate scientific information from advertisement from companies with a vested interest in promoting their products. This class can be adapted to any level, from beginner discovering what is a carbohydrate to people with a lot of nutrition knowledge but that want to discover more specific information. I will help you understand but also make this knowledge into practice in your everyday life for you to enjoy a more balance and complete diet. I learn directly from scientific publications and I am doing my very best to spread this knowledge to anyone interested. Therefore, I do not sell dreams, but science.

Aprende a gestionar tus pensamientos y emociones con acompañamiento terapéutico
Poder reconocer y gestionar nuestros pensamientos y emociones es fundamental para ser humanos que son felices en el momento presente, cada vez más libres de condicionamientos externos, escuchando lo que nuestro ser interno quiere decir sin ocultarlo más. Nuestro potencial necesita ser pulido a través de la experiencia y el autoanálisis, nuestras virtudes y talentos están ahí latentes esperando por nosotros en el interior, pero debemos trabajar e idear un plan de acción que nos ayude a dirigirnos hacia nuestros deseos y metas, debemos actuar, hacernos cargo de nosotros mismos y ser los protagonistas de nuestras propias vidas.
