About Jennifer Dauksha English

I love Permaculture and bring the principles and ethics into just about every aspect of my life. This holistic perspective really enables me to consciously design my life. I feel blessed to have access to so many amazing tools and resources, including this permacultureglobal.org social networking site!

A bit more personal:
I learned that you just have to do it. To insist it from yourself. Don't depend on other people to color your world. You paint your own picture.

I love to be fully engaged! I'm inspired to be alive! I seek to live my values, express my passions and create my dreams. I view the world through energy, whole systems, patterns and cycles. I play with shifting and adapting. I relish diversity. I feel the suffering of the world and I use that to propel me into applied action. To stay empowered, I balance my intensity with a lot of compassion, self care and regenerative holistic healing.

My current interests have been in Martial Arts, Yoga, Dance, Action Learning, Social Networking, Graphical Design, Holacracy, Archetypical Personification, Kayaking and Business Development. My partner Matthew and I live in a naturally built off-grid lodge on a Permaculture Farm, that we began designing and building ourselves in 2004.
