I am choosing Marko Pogacnik
as my Hero to follow, and perhaps to connect with.
I first became aware of Marko early in my 'journey', when I first left University and the desire to be a Church Minister to learn more about Organic Farming and Sustainable Living. I was staying at a homestead on the Dorrigo Plaeteau in Australia, where I was helping to install some backyard irrigation, supplying my helping hands in the kitchen, and learning about taking care of pregnant goats. They had one of Marko's books there, "Nature Spirits and Elementals
I was so captivated with this book! It was really filling my need to bridge my childhood aspirations of living a Spiritual Life with my growing realizations that I wanted to have a deep and respectful relationship with the Natural World. Marko's work helping to heal the Spiritual Energies in landscapes, work for which he has even been hired by the governments of Ireland and Slovenia, really appealed to me. I was (and I am!) full of motivation to be working with the Invisible Intelligence of the Natural World, that I was learning so much about from Marko's stories and experiences.
I am able to follow Marko in a very interesting way. His website has a section called "Monthly Meditation
", so I am now joining with Marko and other People in the world to be Growing our Spiritual Awareness, in ways that connects us to the Earth and prepares us to do the work of healing the relationships between People and the Spirits of Nature * * *
At one time, I would certainly have had Masanobu F**uoka
here as my hero, and it has been interesting that with my Evokation, its focus upon greening the deserts
, and recent connections with Natural Farming kin how much he has been coming in to focus of late. Perhaps my inspiration for the work of Mr.Pogacnik will coalesce with the dear wisdom of Masanobu, inspiring a real transformation of both Earth and People.
"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops,
but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
