A Little about Me

My intention is to work on a natural building project to create a space for sacred wisdom keeping. I want the main language spoken during the project to be Spanish. I was born in Sacramento, California. I like to travel and lived for 5 months in Peru. I hold space for the rebirth of earth in the Birth Into Being workshops I facilitate and in my teachings on how to facilitate groups. I like to sing and swim. I have lived on a farm in a consensus community for the past 2 years and am embarking on a Latin American adventure starting October 2015.

Why I Build Sustainably

I'm interested in the connection felt through building relationships and gathering spaces together. I like the natural materials and the harmonics of beautiful, awe-inspiring spaces. I like the simplicity of making things with my hands and doing it together.

Skills I would like to Work on or Share.

My Life Philosophy

Everything is singing, are you listening?

Building Styles I have Experience in

Cob
Straw Bale
I've taken a 9 day cob workshop. I'm also well versed in group dynamics and creating a cohesive gathering, which I think is as important as the building skills. Right now I'm looking to learn the building skills and offer my group facilitation/organization skills.
