  • Description

    2 years ago I started experiencing that my way of living lost the sense of joy and happiness. I was employed in Sofia City as a manager of department in financial company.
    Fortunately, during that period of life I discovered permaculture principles and Bill Molison. I also got introduced to Ashtanga Yoga. I believe that those two things that emerged a vision in my mind that one day I will create a place where people will live in peace and connected to earth. Place in which damage to nature will be minimized, consumed food will be grown locally, and reforestation projects will take place.
    I decided to quit my job and volunteer in India at different permaculture projects, organic farms and communities. I stayed and volunteered in Auerville, made PDC at Aranya farm (last host of IPC). I attended 10 days Vipassana course in Kathmandu, which gave me a glance of the great affects that meditation can give you. For last four months I used to work at CSA farm in Israel.
    Few days ago I arrived to Portugal with intention to contribute and volunteer for permaculture communities and sustainable projects.
