April 17 - June 1, 2016

 

The Blooming Biodiversity Tour is going to Peru!

We are excited to learn about the rainforest ecosystems, indigenous communities, traditional music and art, and regenerative activism, farming and building methods, applying the skills we learned during our West Coast tour. 

 

By learning and sharing what we’ve learned, we intend to be a bridge from North to South America. This is part of the Eagle Condor prophecy from indigenous people across the Americas. It is a prophecy of social and ecological transformation, community building and recovery of ancient wisdom for the modern era.

 

We will be actively engaged in service work with a variety of Peruvian Non-Profit organizations, dedicated to social and ecological regeneration. We will begin our journey working with Arkana Alliance in a Shipibo Village upriver from Pucallpa called Santa Clara. We will be teaching afterschool programs with the Shipibo children, working in the garden with many medicinal plants and herbs, and working on documentary film projects.

Additionally, we have connected with,  Amistad Sagrada, Nidra Wasi, Chakra de Alegra Rainforest Lodge, the Chaikuni Institute, the Paititi Institute, Casa de Luz, and individual indigenous Shipibo healers and activists. We will be working with some of these organizations on projects including: Permaculture farming/natural building, Documentary Filmmaking of activist projects with indigenous Shipibo communities, working with village children, building a school for Andean Quechua children, habitat restoration, and facilitating Embodying Permaculture, Earth Activist, and Expressive Music and Art workshops.

All additional funds we raise beyond our goal will go to these two journeys. 

 

Our dream is to be a multidimensional healer, herbalist, expressive arts, wilderness, horticulture and mindfulness therapy focused Social Worker. We want to design my own intentional community Ecovillage focused on permaculture, biodynamics, indigenous and farming methods. We deeply value living in a community that is focused on Non-Violent Communication, co-counseling, and transformational theater, to resolve and illuminate group dynamics. We envision magical gardens, art studio, yoga/workshop space, healing sanctuary, community kitchen, music room, outdoor stage, indoor theater, and community bath house. 

 

Who Are We?

The Solutionaries are a diverse team of social-environmental activists, dedicated to co-creating a resilient and regenerative lifestyle for ourselves, our local and global community, our natural world, and future generations. We are co-organizing the Blooming Biodiversity Peru Tour. We facilitate workshops that integrate the topics of permaculture and biodynamic farming, gardening, live music, yoga,healing, expressive and visionary arts, ecstatic dance, communities and ecovillages.

The Purpose: 

To help shift the paradigm from a corporate ruled industrial complex to an intentional, community-created, thriving co-existence.

To nurture the blooming of regenerative biodiversity everywhere we go.

To envision and strategize ways to transcend existing patterns o f global inequality.

To empower community to restore the commons and a culturally rich lifestyle.

To generate a self-sustaining livelihood with community initiated food gardens and organic innovative design.

To initiate conversations and catalyze the process of soil and ecosystem restoration, water purification and green energy system installation (ie: solar/wind power).

To inspire a new world vision for communities to live in a way that is healthy for the planet and humanity.

To act locally and connect globally.

To foster cross-cultural and intergenerational collaboration.

To share healing, visionary and expressive art, music and dance. 

To put solutions into action, and bring forth our greatest potential through collaborative symbiosis.

To make this all happen, we will need your help from the grassroots up! We deeply appreciate your loving support and are excited to share our journey with you!

Anna’s Poetic Dedication

 

We are on a liberation journey.

Let’s free our people, plants and animals.

Mother Earth, we are humbled before you. 

We embody colorful biodiversity.

When we dream big, we manifest our highest reality. 

Everything is one, all is interconnected. 

You are perfect as you are.

You are blossoming in my eyes. 

Your purity is so profound, it radiates to all beings. 

We are on this healing journey together. 

Let’s take a deep breath, and harmonize our realities. 

Be grateful to be in the dance of life. 

We are not confined.

We are coexisting with deep awareness of each other’s needs and interdependence. 

We are here to support each other. 

When we go inside, we find clarity on our life’s purpose. 

My purpose is to share my love for this planet and all beings through my creativity and service.

In supporting the communities, honoring the needs of all plants and animals.

This is very clear. 

We already have all the answers we’ve been waiting for

Let’s learn from each other. 

From all cultures.

Remembering the cycle, the message is so clear.

When we release resistance, there is nothing to fear. 

It’s all life lessons, we are growing every day.

The message is within us, may we honor it in a sacred way. 

Let’s illuminate and liberate.

Now is the time to co-create.

Let’s begin to regenerate.

Update May 15th, 2016

We are still accepting donations for our crowdfunding campaign!
www.gofundme.com/bloomingbioperu 

We visited the Shipibo school today and are so excited to work with the kids! There's a big mural outside of the school that says "Somos Uno Con La Naturaleza," which means "We Are One With Nature!" The kids are so enthusiastic, and the Shipibo permaculture specialist, Marcos, is really knowledgable about medicinal plants and permaculture planting. 

Your donations will help us support the following projects:

1) We have a big plot of land to design our own garden in and plant with the kids. We will likely create either a mandala garden, medicinal plant labyrinth (or symbol significant to the Shipibo), 

2) We are going to help put up signs that name and describe medicinal plants along a pathway that connects the school to the soon-to-be Cultural Community Center/International Permaculture Education Hub

3) We will be leading the kids in fun after-school activities such as our Embodying Permaculture workshop (in Spanish!), music, art, movement, and much more! 

4) We are fundraising for school supplies for the kids, including journals, pens and pencils, because many of them can't afford supplies, the school can't provide them, and they are required to have them. 

5) We will be learning from local elders and supporting them and their families through garden projects and participating in ceremony and dieta.

Thank you for your donations! Every dollar helps!
