Let Nature Be Your Guide
We live and work with the elemental energies of the soil/earth, the water of Wagner Creek, the fire of the sun, the winds of the air, and the cosmic forces of ether, that form an interactive ecology integral to the health of the land and our beings.
We grow most of the fruit and vegetables that we eat, produce medicines and beverages from our many medicinals and have started a small business: Yahya Divine Elixirs.
We are looking for mutually beneficial relationships, people who want to partner with the land and farming.
Mentoring or Partnering opportunities include biodynamic farming and homesteading skills, running a small business, selling farm products, the alchemy of medicinals, knowledge of the elements integrated with body awareness.
Housing: We have a cabin in the woods without electricity or water and a new barn house that includes several rooms, bathroom and a kitchen to share.
Steiner, who pioneered the field of Biodynamics, advocated that the farmer should establish a personal relationship to everything in farming because the process of growing is directly connected with continuous inner development.
“I came to the Embodied Ecology internship to engage and disengage from life. What I learned will last a lifetime. Working with the earth to better ground myself enabled me to interface with the other elementals forces inside and out. Opening my heart to this wonderful enchanted world, I am now more engaged than even before. Thanks for pumping life back into my heart.” – Sibby Hansen, NY
“I participated in Embodied Ecology when it was titled ‘Eco-Somatics.’ I was unsure of my identity and my life’s direction. The program introduced me to the five elements and building upon fire, Yahya encouraged me to confront the topic of fear. I learned through working with several art and performance projects to understand my personal fears, and how to use them in my favor. As a result, I was able to pave an entirely new direction for my art, which has in turn, led me towards graduate school.” —Larry Reid, Johnson City, TN
