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.

Coaching and Psicoterapia Online / Coaching and Psychotherapy Online
Tengo a diploma in Psicologia, a Master in Terapia Cognitiva Social y luego hice a posgrado in Integrative Coaching. Tengo otras formaciones complementarias como la Terapia Breve Estrategica o la Sandplay Therapy. Tengo experiencia con personas de edades y culturas diferentes y también que han llegado a mi con problemáticas muy diversas. Los he atendido de manera presencial u online. Llevo haciendo terapia Online desde hace aproximadamente 3 años. Soy Colombiana, he vivido en España y en Bélgica y siendo inmigrante me di cuenta de la necesidad de poder tener un acompañamiento llámese terapia o llámese coaching en su lengua materna, especialmente si vivimos en país donde se habla otro idioma. Después de esta práctica Online fled conociendo todos sus beneficios: mayor flexibilidad en términos de horarios y no hay necesidad de desplazarse, solo necesita una conexión a Internet y une lugar donde se pueda tener calma y privacidad durante la sesión. Creo que con mi formación y con mi experiencia de vida puedo hacer un acompañamiento profesional que estará marcado por la paciencia, la empatía y será a propio ritmo, sin prisas. La terapia o el coaching, sobretodo Online cada vez más accessible y hay que aprovechar la tecnología a nuestro favor para poder la vida que queremos vivir. I am a psychologist, psychotherapist, coach and dance teacher. I trained in dance since I was 4 years old. I have a degree in Psychology, a Master in Cognitive-Social Therapy and then training in Coaching. I have other additional training such as Brief Strategic Therapy or Sandbox Therapy. I have experience with people of different ages and cultures as much in a face-to-face way as online. Online support, either as a therapist or as a Coach, I have been practicing it for 3 years. I am Colombian and I lived in Spain and Belgium, and being an immigrant I realized the need to be able to find a therapist or coach in his language or who has had similar experiences with migration. Afterwards, while practicing, I experienced the benefits of Online Therapy; either psychotherapy or coaching, and it's a new way to support in our world today. With online coaching or therapy, you can have more flexibility in terms of schedules and you don't have to travel, you just need an internet connection and you can be in a quiet and private space. I believe that with my training and my life experience I can accompany you in a warm, peaceful way, at your own pace, and with a lot of patience. Therapy is more and more accessible so take advantage of it to live in the most satisfying way possible.

///Life Coach/// Lig je in de knoop met jezelf, zie je het allemaal even niet meer helder? Contacteer ons en we gaan samen op zoek.
Je bent mentaal wel gezond, maar je voelt dat je ergens vastloopt in je leven. Je krijgt het even allemaal niet meer geregeld, je hebt nood aan verheldering of je moet knopen doorhakken, maar je durft niet goed of weet niet waar beginnen. Dan kan ik aan de hand van bestaande coaching-methodes en technieken, maar in de eerste plaats vanuit een menselijkheid en een nuchtere kijk op het leven naast je staan om je de nodige tools aan te reiken die jij op dit moment nodig hebt om terug verder te geraken in je leven. Je kan hier terecht voor allerlei problematieken zoals onder andere: - stress en burnout - studiekeuze - werkgerelateerde problematieken - time-management - levensdoel zoeken - gezins- en relatieproblemen - scheiding - je kind(eren) in een vechtscheiding - onbalans tussen draagkracht en draaglast - opvoeding - financiën - faalangst en/of uitstelgedrag - ... Voordat we starten met de sessies krijg je een algemene vragenlijst doorgestuurd die je me ingevuld terugstuurt. Zodra ik deze terug heb ontvangen ben je welkom voor een intake-gesprek van ongeveer een half uurtje waarna ik bekijk of ik je al dan niet verder kan helpen. (Indien nodig verwijs ik je graag door naar de juiste instantie(s) waar jij voor jouw persoonlijke problematiek wel terecht zou kunnen.) Na het intake-gesprek kunnen we reeds aansluitend starten met een eerste sessie. Afhankelijk van de aard en de intensiteit van je probleem kan het zijn dat je met een enkele sessie voldoende hebt om reeds verder te kunnen, of kan het zijn dat je gedurende langere tijd op regelmatige basis komt om je doel te bereiken. Wie ben ik? Mijn naam is Carlo en ik ben vader van twee prachtige zonen. Van beroep ben ik jazzmuzikant en life coach. Daarnaast organiseer ik samen met mijn verloofde huisconcerten en geef ik privé muzieklessen in ons eigen huisje. Mijn leven is de laatste vijf jaren zeer turbulent geweest. Hierdoor ben ik mezelf heel hard tegengekomen, wat erg moeilijk was, maar tegelijkertijd heeft dit mij ook sterker gemaakt. Door middel van Kung Fu, muziek en het veel lezen van boeken probeerde ik aan mezelf te werken om er op die manier terug te staan. Vanuit deze ervaring ben ik mij gaan verdiepen in het "mens zijn" en het menselijk psyche en besloot ik een opleiding tot life coach te volgen. Als docent aan de Hogeschool Zuyd in de opleiding muziek heb ik steeds mijn studenten begeleid doorheen hun jonge jaren. Ik vond het van belang om niet enkel muziek-technisch iets aan te brengen, maar om voor hen klaar te staan als mens, als mentor en als vertrouwenspersoon. Dit sluit goed aan bij mijn opleiding als life coach. Daarenboven ben ik aanvankelijk muzikant geworden om mensen gelukkig te maken en de afgelopen turbulente jaren hebben mij doen inzien dat ik dit eigenlijk ook op andere manieren kan dan enkel met muziek. Zoals reeds gezegd hebben we in ons huis een privé-muziekschooltje waar we ook huisconcerten organiseren, maar we zien dit meer als een inloophuis waar mensen met muzikale problemen, maar ook met andere persoonlijke issues terecht kunnen. Ik zie mezelf als volgt: 'Public service creating happiness and wellbeing for body, mind and spirit' Deze zin omvat de manier waarop ik een publieke instelling wil zijn, waar we de drie elementen body, mind en spirit op een rij kunnen zetten en zo naar een balans kunnen zoeken in de problematiek. Ik kijk er naar uit om ook jouw verhaal mee te schrijven!
