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.

*Online singing Course + Certificate* with Laura from Mia and the Moon
Do you want to improve confidence, find out how your voice works and develop your technique?... Well, you’ve come to the right place! I never let my students feel like they are too late in life, too beginner or too out of practise start lessons. You’ll be so surprised at what you can do, I promise! I have been a professional touring singer with 'Mia and the Moon' for 12 years+ and have been teaching singers of all levels since 2012. I have studied the Estill method as well as Speech level singing, musical theatre, pop/commercial style and have formed my own unique style of coaching which consistently builds the confidence and skill set of my students. I cater to all ability levels and welcome absolute beginners. During lessons, we study anatomy, warm-ups, exercises, placement, repertoire and then stage confidence and putting all of the skills learned into songs and performance. My style is relaxed yet very informative and I aim for a student to see results quickly - but to enjoy the lessons enough to want to continue over a period of time. I also offer club nights, studio days and various workshops alongside one to one coaching. I offer lessons for any age.

BIOHACKING: HOW TO SUPERCHARGE YOURSELF & LOSE WEIGHT EASILY
Would you like to be Healthier Lose Weight and Gain an Extra 3 hours every day. Do you suffer from health problems, low energy, brain fog in your everyday life? Do you want to take your mind and body to the next level? Biohacking is about increasing health & performance for mind and body. After you complete this workshop you will be able to: Increase your brain power and mental clarity. Heal faster and gain more energy. Super charge your mindset for success. Gain an extra 2-3 hours a day every day. increase Confidence, Discipline, Persistence, Willpower, Resilience, and focus in your everyday life. Be happier and at more ease with yourself and life. Slows down the aging process so you look and feel younger and healthier. You will learn how and why your body/mind works the way it does and why its so hard to be healthy, and how to bend this to your advantage. Testimonials: Entering the workshop, I felt my health and productivity were ok and I wanted more out of life. and there I had my mind blown about the possibilities of biohacking. Realising that my body is addicted to sugars 'even though I'm not over weight'. I followed his advice on 10 day detox to unwire the addiction to sugar and I could only do that thanks to the psychologically supporting mindset he gave me. I feel I'm on a whole new level of focus health and productivity and seeing the success, I'm excited to implement more of his advice! - Richard S. I've known for a while that I needed help/support/coaching but not to whom to turn to/where to turn to. Joe provided me with that comprehensive guidance, equipped me with enough information, that I can now make the necessary fundamental changes. Four to 5 days after the meeting/consultation, I started to feel better. - Agneta L. Signup now and begin your transformation to increase health, well-being and performance. About Joe: I've been a Biohacker for over 5 years and have taken my clients' health/performance from a very low place to optimum levels in both body and mind. I used to work in the city where I over-worked and over-ate with an extremely bad diet. Eventually my body broke down and I was transferred from hospital to hospital and the doctors couldn't help me. For over 6 months I was disabled and needed 24/7 care and could only sleep for 30mins at a time. Realising that if I wanted to save my life, then I had to master my own health. From that point on I began an epic transformational journey to master my own body and mind. I tried everything from conventional to alternative medicine and therapies, anything that had even the slightest chance of success. I went to over 30 alternative doctors and took hundreds of different supplements and remedies, studied everything I could about the human body/mind and how to optimise it for health and performance. This goes far beyond medicine and herbs: As Tony Robbins says to be a success at anything 80% is psychology and 20% is mechanics. What that means is that 80% is in your head and 20% is the actual actions to make it happen. Once you get the psychology sorted out then the actions become much much easier to do. Trying to achieve something without getting the psychology aligned is like trying to swim against the tide. If you work on the psychology and get that aligned to your goals and ambitions then it's like swimming with the current. In both cases you still have to swim and put the effort in, just in the 2nd option it's much easier, quicker and with less effort. When I’m teaching one of the most common responses I get is that being healthy is hardwork. My response is that being unhealthy is hard, having health problems like brain fog, high blood pressure, Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, those things are hard as hell, literally, being healthy in comparison is a walk in the park. Your body and mind is not a car, if you mistreat a car and it breaks down you can get rid of it and just buy a new one, and another and another, but if you mistreat your body/mind and it breaks down you can’t get a new one! My goal is to help you towards becoming the very best version of yourself. If you haven't already signed up then please do it now. I look forward to meeting you at the workshop and assist you in transforming your life. Anytime sessions are where we agree on a mutual time and place.

Online Leadership and Life Coaching sessions to assist people achieve their personal and career goals and enhance existing skills.
ICF Certified Leadership and Life Coach who can assist you in discovering yourself and shaping a meaningful purpose for your life. I have coached and mentored thousands of individuals of various age groups in the past 24+ years. I'm passionate to see how others grow in their personal and organizational skills. I believe in 1-minute-value coaching that achieves the desired outcomes. It will be my pleasure to build a learning/coaching partnership together as we go from session to session. I always strive to understand my client's needs and passion. That helps me to tailor my coaching sessions to identify areas of improvement through proper guidance. I define coaching as the mechanism of facilitating the learning process of an individual through proper guidance towards a desired outcome which a coachee discovers by receiving insight from a coaching session and heading towards establishing goal(s) to achieve them on time. This helps the coachee to grow in skillogy by applying a learning outcome. During my introductory session with a potential client, I put a distinguishing factor between coaching and mentoring and sometimes classes can be a merge of both. I define mentoring as the mechansim of learning where a master mentor guides, advises, recommends solutions, shares stories and experiences, deliver a defined knoweldge area, motivate and inspire a mentee to grow in personal and professional life. In coahing I strive to follow the 80/20 rule. That is to say, I speak by 20% and listen to my coachee by 80%. This helps the coachee to discover things and receive insight in a 1-hour session. This applies to one-to-one or group coaching. Whether you want me to coach you in leadership or in life skills, the common element which makes a successful coaching experience is your passion and purpose to bring a desired, positive change in your life. Our learning partnership can make this dream come true! Sharpening leadership or life skills is your choice. You can become the person you choose to be. Your decision to start working on your personality and skills will give you the gravitas and professional image that most motivated people desire to have.

Remember, when you WANT, success can be near the door. Stay tuned with me and enjoy my 1-minute-value coaching services!

Complete American College Preparation Coaching - High School Tutoring, SAT, and Applications
Hi there! My name is Kostas. I graduated from Emory University in 2017 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and from the I.B. program from Newbury Park High School in California. I worked as a strategy consultant for almost two years after university. I have also completed my TEFL certificate and have experience teaching English as a second language. I have previous experience teaching: Primary and Secondary Level Mathematics, HL I.B. Economics, HL I.B. Business, Principles of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, SAT, and English. Now, I am based in Madrid. Student client location is not an issue as I have extensive experience tutoring online. I can help you, a high-aspiring high school student or guardian of one, with all-encompassing coaching to achieve your college placement goals in the USA. I have developed effective strategies and coaching techniques from my own experience and mistakes. I can help you with tutoring in specific course work, SAT prep and prep strategies from proven sources and practices, creating your college goals, college applications, and a plan and implementation to achieve them. This is a new service that I am offering because of the incredible gap of knowledge I have noticed between parents from all backgrounds, high school counselors, and universities. I want your student to be prepared and successful during their high school career and college placement. I've turned Ds, Cs, and Bs into As, and even Fs into Bs. Everything is possible if the student is willing to work hard with me. My policy is strict. I require students to inform me of the newly covered information in class at least 4 hours before class. If I notice a student is simply not cooperating after extensive effort from myself and the parents, I will drop the student as a client. I want students who are willing to take matters into their own hands.

Life Coaching and support for people in a scarey world
Lots of us live in a world separated from our family support systems, parents, grandparents - those people who traditionally have been there to support and guide through you through life's challenges. I work in education and have additional coaching experience. I also am a mum and grandparent. What I offer is a coaching / supporting relationship if that's what you need. I've been called a safe pair of hands many times and I may be able to help. I also have experience working with older people and teenagers in education and companionship roles. I am only distance working currently.
