It's been a dream of mine to study at Navdanya with my Shero Dr. Vandana Shiva. She gives me so much life as a woman of color, an Indo-Caribbean woman, a woman of the Indian diaspora, doing this work with the Earth, with soil, with seeds, steeped in Vedic philosophy, ancestral wisdom and ancient practices.

To be able to return to the motherland, where my ancestors thrived and had their wildest dreams of me, will be a tremendous gift and healing. My ancestors had ties to various regions of India and I have yet to visit the villages where they lived.

These funds will cover the cost of the course, the conference, study materials as well as teaching tools, travel, living expenses, clean water and food, and personal care.

Will you support me to be a Bijak at this Bija Vidyapeeth (Earth University), this educational and spiritual journey? This will count as an Independent Study course towards my Master of Science in Leadership for Sustainability and Agroecology degrees at the University of Vermont. Anything you can give is appreciated as there's not much funding or financial support for (Queer) (Formerly Undocumented) (Immigrant) women (of Color) over 30 pursuing higher education. Dr. Shiva said that my permaculture practice will soar will soar with Bija studies and I cannot wait!

This is where I will be spending my birthday. 🌳❤️

Even if you are broke and struggling, you can still share the link and words of support. It would mean so much to me!

Thank you,
Anandi ❤️🌱

Abuse is not always physically visible.

Most domestic violence organizations focus on physical abuse and ignore the psychological and emotional aspects. They are very real.

The philosophy of Bruce Lee – a profound thinker.

"The philosophy of Lee is more powerful than the martial arts of Lee. Everything that Bruce Lee did flowed from his mind and his thinking."

-------------------------

What Lee did was harness energies outside the ordinary energies that are used for daily life. The martial arts were a way a life for him, a genuine path, a means of psychological development and spiritual development.

------------------------

Lee was a devotee of Alan Watts, a 20th century British philosopher who introduced Eastern thought to Western audiences. Lee would tape Watts' lectures and play them back to his martial arts students in class.

"Krishnamurti was his go-to thinker. He taught that one must come to the present moment and not be tainted by rituals and dogmas. He took everything he said about religion and applied it to the martial arts."

------------------------

Lee's devotion to philosophy could have just remained an abstract pursuit. But it was also key to his physical speed and power. One martial artist said that Lee had the+ ability to move from perfect stillness and "explode like a firecracker."

Lee could do that because he was able to tap into what ancient Chinese philosophers called "chi." – a "vast reservoir of free-flowing energy" within all people that "when channeled to our muscles, can give us great strength and, when channeled to our brain, can give us great insight and understanding."

Lee's ability to summon chi at will was the culmination of years of philosophical contemplation and physical training, his biographers and students say. Lee once described what it felt like to summon these energies within himself:

"I feel I have this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence... Whether it is the Godhead or not, I feel this great force, this untapped power, this dynamic something within me."

The natural capital concept is not a sell-out. It’s a way to shine light on, and cultivate appreciation for, the invisible benefits of nature.
