    Helping for regenerative, healing designs through bio-construction, agroforestry, natural crafts, low-tech.. I wanna help building sustainable, self-sufficient lives, aiming regeneration at each scale

  • Description

    Hey there!

    I’m travelling through Portugal called here by life, volunteering to continue upgrading my skills while i'm looking for the territory i'll be able to ground in deeply and bring to life the holistic regenerative project i'm working on for years... We might find some things in common ;)

    My will in my life is to have the most positive influence possible on life, of every forms. In me and outside me. I am here to heal and care and i am looking for places and people sharing those same intentions for real, in the matter. I am a trustworthy person, responsible of myself and of what life offers me, and i really need to act with people who have the same strength. At least trying to. We all learn, and if i've worked a lot on my self i still have a long way to do too.

    Sovereignty is an important word for me. As coherence, or alignment. Communication appears to me as an important key in all kind of relationships. Autonomy and harmony are two other words that i cherish. Sacred embracing them all.

    I really need and enjoy being in action ; i have a loooot of energy but only if i can act with coherence. Learning the principles of life and working in harmony with them is what nutrish my soul deeply and give me those super powers i can have.
    I especially feel a huge call for building. Naturally of course, in harmony with the environment. That's my number one wanting-to-learn-and-do. And regenerative practices.
    I have quite a lot of knowledges already in a wide spectrum, from permaculture to ecobuilding, from pedagogies to neurosciences, from human and social sciences to self-sufficient practices, physically, emotionnally, spiritually, energetically... From the inner to the outer, from human to nature. Regeneration is my goal, for nature and for human cultures. I'm a deeply motivated learner of life in a true holistic and healing way.
    Oh, and i have quite some experiences too ! In a wide range again. A bit tricky to describe it all, would be better to send my curriculum aha. Don't hesitate to ask ! But i still have a loooot of things to learn, and especially a looooooot to experiment and to try in matter. I might lack some basic hand-on for certain things, but i assure you i'll catch up really quickly. I have a grounded mind that just need the chances to have the matter to play with it so i can get it. Can't wait to learn!

    Be reassured if it's needed: taking care of the basic daily tasks is also important for me, as taking care of my self, of the others, and of the environment in a wider way. Learning this balance is really an important discipline for me. I think we could say i am a pragmatic person, pretty grounded and trying to be as much present as possible to everything. Even if it's a work always in progress! But i really know the importance of the spaces we are living, the links they have with us, and the responsibility we have toward them. I cherish leaving a place in a better way than when i arrived to it.

    Anyhow. I have a lot of knowledges in my head but i really need to get my hand on, and to learn more. So i am looking to help to build and learn more about regenerative designs, through bio-construction firstly, and agroforestry management, rewilding practices. And i also feel attracted a lot toward natural crafting, low-tech and any practices aiming to develop self-sufficiency in a regenerative holistic way, always.
    I'm really in love with handworking, and the wood is especially a matter that i cherish. I also have a lot of creativity and practical observance for reusing materials in constructions.
    Moreover, I would really enjoy talking about creating designs, spaces, tools,... aiming regeneration and help bring them into life. I would also love to work with horses. Practices of art, body and soul, would be a plus. Any share about healing / caring ways... And so much other things. I am a really curious person full of enthusiasm as long as it is honouring life. I want to live a real sustainable and supportive life, authentic and full of sacred beauty, and i am willing to do whatever is needed to. As long as it honours the life, within me and outside me, for sure.

    You can also notice that i can enjoy to spend time with children. I usually bond really easily with them and i care so much about helping them achieve their own happiness, in their own way. I have some pedagogical / psychological / neurosciences knowledges, and a lot of sensitivity towards them, so exchanging about education can be another contribution of mine. Crafting pedagological tools can be also something i can help with !

    One last information : i have a hairy companion travelling with me, Wooky. He is a really special one, super sweet and tender, but those late months have been really hard for him so his energy is still quite down. He was already quite a chiller, and now he is even more... He has a lot to recover from... But we'll get there ! Note just that he nearly never barks, doesn't dig holes, doesn't chew thing, doesn't care most of the time of other animals and if he does it would be in his super sweet energy. He is an easy learner and can learn especially to avoid the garden parts. I'm responsible about his dejections also. Well, i think he is super easy to live, as i think i am. And as i've been told too quite several time!

    Don't hesitate if you have any questions, about him or about me ! And thank you for your reading. I hope this can led to some nice and powerful meetings.

    With love !

  • More details about your skills

    I have many skills to offer to you but my prior skills are my willingness and ability to learn, my commitment toward Life in every of its forms, my consciousness, outer and inner, my sensitivity and my self-responsibility.
    I might be young but i've lived quite a lot of different experiences already. And physical age does not tell much neither, right? I am used to live off the grid, even without electricity and/or hot water, in collectives or by my self, i've worked in different areas with children, animals, lands, farms, places for retreat, associations, and i've also done a looooot of inner work because my being is super sensitive and i have physical troubles super easily if i am not taking care of my Self. And taking care of my Self means taking care of the Earth also. I try to be as coherent as possible but it's not an easy road regarding the gap nowadays that separates culture from nature. But i'm doing my best every day and learning to be tender to my self too as to have a stronger and stronger commitment toward Life in general.

    But in a more pragmatical way, let's list non exhaustively my skills and knowledges... It's quite hard to do, so don't mind to much the poor way of putting this up please !

    - Building : principles for passive building, some traditionnal carpentry principles, manual woodworking , some wood properties and use, straw building, use of dry stones, insulation with light straw, cork oak, hemp, cellulose, wood wool... Terrasing, nivelling, building stairs... And a deep motivation again to learn and practice! All of this in a deep conscious strengthen by my scientific knowledges about why it is so important to create biophilic environment, i link to every aspect of our health.

    - Caring of the Earth : caring of the soil, permaculture and agroforestry principles and designing with them (i did two permaculture design courses, but online), water management, biodynamic's principles, caring of the plants with natural potions, pruning, mulching, chopping, taking down a tree with an axe and with love, seeding, planting and transplanting, creating spaces for biodiversity, identifying plants, animals, birds... I am also formed in an energetic perspective way and i am quite sensitive so i can support a land or any form of life by my healing and listening, working with the invisible.

    - Caring of the animals : i'm used to work with dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, sheeps, goats, cows, chickens, ducks, rabbits... And bees!

    - Caring of the others - educationnal and inter-personnal skills : first of all i believe that every being is born with knowing what it needs and why it is here for: flourishing in its own way ! So my educational and social position is the best skill i can offer. I am quite naturally a good social support, and i've learnt also to always seek the balance between what i give to the others, what i give to the Earth, and what i give to me. Then i formed my self to (and worked with) : project pedagogy, cooperative pedagogy, nature based pedagogies, scientific experimental pedagogy, democratic pedagogy, some communication and mediation tools like active listening, non-violent communication, restaurative circle... Studied human, social, educational sciences and neurosciences specially aimed toward learning processes. Getting to understand and feel our attention is one of the most powerful tool i've ever learnt.

    - Self-sufficiency : used to live off the grid, in the wild, and happy with solitud. Knowing firstly the difference between desire and need. Trying to consume in a much ecological way possible, big fan of reusing also. Knowledge of wild edible and medicinal plants, use with consciousness of what nature offers us for building, crafting, living..., some low-tech, medecinal knowledges (see special section below), educational knowledges (see special section upper), super happy of "just" being present here and now, taking care of the self (see special section below). Being self responsible. Emotionnaly speaking, i'm trying as much as possible to not project on the others my own inner processes, just reajusting my own position to the situation / relation.

    - Caring of the tools : cleaning, sharpening, loving them..!

    - Medecine : knowledges about the integrity of our health (physical, emotionnal, social and cognitive, all relying on the health of our environments!), use of plants, some chinese and ayurvedic medecines principles, energetic healing - for people and places -, chamanism, emotional equivalence of a physical "problem", nutrition, movements, power of knowing and respecting our Self (see special section below). ( For instance i am supposed to have a "chronic" auto-immune disease and to be with medication all my life... It's been more than three years with no meds and no symptoms !! Or really really not the same at least. I've learnt a lot from this, and i'm still learning, and it forces me again and again to be stronger in my alignment. My body is one of my biggest master).

    - Taking care of the self : meditation, exercises of the conscious to heal, align, purify, ground... Energetic work, support of the neurosciences with the attention system to understand and feel what it is to be really present, healing movements, consciousness of emotions and the learning they bring to us, consciousness of the whole that we are - holistic being -, through our sensitivity especially, that i studied in my neuroscience final research. Shadow work, ego work, light work, working with the invisible, numerology, astrology,... and so on and so on.

    Oh, and i can enjoy drawing, painting, dancing, playing music, acting, circus practices, martial arts, taïchi yoga... It depends the energy of the place !
    And i also worked in restaurants and i have a "geek" past, so even if i try to avoid to much use of the computer now i can be a good help for some things you might need.

    Again, i find this summing up so hard to do. The list is really non exhaustive !
