The seed - Kalos Nature Centre
I'm on Koh Phangan, found the place for our Kalos "Sacred Grove" - eco-office and area for (future) gardens around, from which will spread - or continue do that - the concepts of Tree Owner Clubs, Tea Travel, rebirthing of Sacred Groves around the world - can't find the link - all Tree-related combined with...? - Yes - Marine Research Center and art gallery!
Few points why, except the BNF -big new factor.
There are reasons why its happens here. Phangan considering by many as a "Sacred place", which also was for long time barely inhabited. Here 're few facts for quick dive-in:
At the same time more and more people coming to live and have their usual modern life here - after years of absence the results of our "usual life" are visible and has in common negative effect on nature.
Financial support of the opening of Eco-center will give to the people behind and around any brands & companies whole bunch of advantages and possibilities; which being taken together are definetely exceeding just abstract charity reasons. Its include:
Tea community nowadays rapidly growing - tea masters travels around the world to run the tea ceremonies, more online-tea-shops opening every year with better and better selections of popular and rare teas, new wave of passionate people learning "how-to grow, dry'n roast" and run the tea farms in new destinations, such as Lao & Thailand, where they're creating new collections of Chen & Chu Pu-erhs, Oolongs and other teas.
Being close to that "new wave", after visiting few places with healthy natural water source its became obvious that "the New World need Tea Travel" - where each place has remarkable both water source, perfect for the tea-making - waterfall, hot spring or other, and a nice area to enjoy freshly brewed tea. Also its should be option to stay - as the travel require - still plenty of magic places, even after 3-step filtering .
In September 1990 Oregon pilots reported the appearing of giant Shri Yantra in the desert. After various theories the creator revealed himself - Bill Witherspoon- US-artist, and later founder of innovative Sky Factory. After six years of self-discovered Grand Love-letters to Being Bill shared what he found in "Art as technology". Created back in 199five - five number doesn't work - today this chronicle a series of experiences and observations becames possibly even more fresh-looking and actual. I see there the way and method of how we can make something nice and big together - not just for each of us who participate - for all the Existence, whatever anybody means by it! With great appreciation to Bill and people who helped him in described experiences we publishing here the chronicle. Believing that its reading will be same exiting that it was for us, we will not share it on any social pages and on any other of numerous fund's websites - continuing the good eternal-alike tradition of organic transfer of knowledge, which contains defined amount of luck.
Art as technology
Daughter of mountain
Lover of lonely places
To Her who is ancient and
To Her who sounds in my
The voice of the sky
I bow down
Love story, or red hearts under the tree
Fall for the leaf can be the beginning of his wonderful circle in a world of colors. On a tree all the leaves are just green.
Fallen leaf is a tree's story - or one of many stories what that Tree has.
There are the time when some leaves has form of hearts.
Days passed, and leaves shows other tale - now its Tree of Life.
