• Brad Blackett posted an update 2 years, 6 months ago

    It has been about two years since I last posted anything here. So much is happening. Currently not working (but need an income). I am a drift but migrating in a certain direction casted by my recent life events.

    A time of exploration and discovery …It started with the events that lead me 4 years ago to the Evolve class. A narrowing of interests while at the same time a widening worldview. My main passions remain my same drive force. The need to connect ever so stronger. Community more significant. Securing a future for next generations my overall focus.

    Discovery of my childhood dreams are even more relevant and valid today as they were back then. New guiding principles borrowed form Permaculture 1) Earth Care, 2) People Care and 3) Fair Share together encompass ECO-Justice.

    Involvement in the first North American Permaculture Convergence in 28 years, the Future-First’s 2014 Woman’s Congress and the signing of the “Declaration of Rights for all Waters”, the 2015 Indigenous Farming Conference, Pachamama Alliance “Awakening the Sleeper” workshop and the “Game Changer Intensive” course; Rallying and Protesting against the Sandpiper and KXL pipelines with Honor-the-Earth – has all led me to head towards the Headwater’s of the Amazon deep in the Ecuadorian Rainforest.
    This December and January I will meet with tribal elders enlisting the Legend and Prophecy of the EAGLE and the CONDOR to join North & South America together to Save-the-Earth. Later attending a world gathering of the “Art-of-Hosting meaningful community conversations” leading practitioners at a conference in Brazil, afterwards I am hoping to go to Peru to visit Machu Picchu (while I am in the neighborhood).

    I am not sure what I will do with all that when I get back to Minnesota … but something to write about in my next update.
