Smart by Nature: Schooling for Sustainability to Abundability

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” –Audrey Hepburn

{A Side Note from L’iv:
Help us to redefine our New Earth!
“Sustainable” is poverty consciousness thinking; only being able to stay at a level of existence.
Let’s  begin using the word(s) “Abundability” and “Sustabundance” meaning plenty of everything GOoD for all without limit!}

What can educators do to foster real intelligence?…We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the Earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation, and wildness.
—David W. Orr

There is a bold new movement underway in school systems across North America and around the world. Educators, parents, and students are remaking K–12 education to prepare students for the environmental challenges of the coming decades. They are discovering that guidance for living abundantly on a finite planet lies, literally, under their feet and all around them—in living soil, food webs and water cycles, energy from the sun, and everywhere that nature reveals her ways. Smart by Nature schooling draws on 3.8 billion years of natural research and development to find solutions to problems of sustainable living, make teaching and learning more meaningful, and create a more hopeful future for people and communities.

School gardens bloom in wintry climates and on former asphalt lots. Students learn good nutrition while eating healthy lunches of farm-fresh food. At independent schools in New Jersey, public schools in California, and charter schools in Wisconsin, education comes alive as children discover the wonders of nature while restoring rural landscapes, protecting endangered species, and creating city habitats. Classroom buildings in schools on the South Side of Chicago, in central Arkansas, and in suburban Oregon become living laboratories for energy conservation and resource stewardship.

Schools from Washington to Florida have transformed into model communities. Utilities, governments, and educators have become partners in designing energy-efficient, safe, and healthy schools that promote the welfare of students and school staff while teaching wise resource use and care of the Earth. In small towns and large cities, students practice the arts of citizenship while improving the lives of their neighbors.

This movement responds to the realization that the young people in school today will inherit a host of pressing—and escalating—environmental challenges: threats of climate change; loss of biodiversity; the end of cheap energy; depletion of resources; environmental degradation; gross inequities in standards of living; obesity, diabetes, asthma, and other environmentally linked illness. This generation will require leaders and citizens who can think ecologically, understand the interconnectedness of human and natural systems, and have the will, ability, and courage to act.

The movement goes by many names: green schools, eco-schools, high-performance schools. We call it schooling for sustainability to underline its kinship with other global movements reshaping the relationships between human societies and the natural world. At the same time, we acknowledge that “sustainability” is problematic to some people.

“The word ‘sustainability’ has gotten such a workout lately that the whole concept is in danger of floating away on a sea of inoffensiveness,” wrote Michael Pollan in late 2007. “Everybody, it seems, is for it—whatever ‘it’ means.”2 Paradoxically, many people remain unaware of the concept, while others have already concluded that it is on its way to joining “natural” and “ecological” as words that can simultaneously mean anything and nothing. “If a man characterized his relationship with his wife as sustainable,” wrote architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart, “you might well pity them both.”3 After reviewing the alternatives, though, writer and consultant Alan AtKisson concluded, “As a name for the future of our dreams, sustainability may be ‘the worst word, except for all the others.’”

To stay useful, however, sustainability must mean more than merely surviving or trying to keep a degraded world from getting worse. Otherwise, why bother? Invoking nature’s capacity for sustaining life, as physicist and system theorist Fritjof Capra suggests, is critical. A sustainable community worth imagining is alive, in the most exuberant sense of that word—fresh, vital, evolving, diverse, and dynamic. It cares about the quality as well as the continuation of life. It is flexible and adaptive. It draws energy from its environment, celebrates organic wholeness, and appreciates that life has more to reveal than human cleverness has yet discovered. It teaches its children to pay attention to the world around them, to respect what they cannot control, and to embrace the creativity with which life sustains itself.
Overcoming Obstacles
Few question the need to prepare students for the complex world into which they will graduate, but the schooling for sustainability movement nevertheless encounters obstacles: School systems are notoriously slow to change. Responsibilities for schools’ operations are often dispersed through multiple levels of authority, from the local principal to the federal government, with mandates that sometimes conflict. Virtually all schools and districts face financial challenges. Schooling for sustainability competes with other priorities, including standardized testing in public schools and pressure to focus on Advanced Placement in independent schools.
Schools across the country are creatively overcoming barriers to schooling for sustainability. Over the past two decades, the Center for Ecoliteracy, a public foundation in Berkeley, California, dedicated to education for sustainable living, has worked with hundreds of educators committed to this vision. In our 2009 book Smart by Nature: Schooling for Sustainability (Watershed Media/University of California Press), we set out to document the accomplishments of schools of all types and sizes from every geographic region, to share the lessons they have learned, and to further the discussion that has begun among the many parties to this movement.

We discovered that schooling for sustainability is a winning proposition with many direct and indirect benefits. What is good for the future of the environment and for communities is also good for schools and students now. Students who learn nature’s principles in gardens and serve their communities through civic participation become more engaged in their studies and score better in diverse subjects, including science, reading and writing, and independent thinking.

Designing buildings to conserve energy and water can save enough money to convince finance-minded school boards. Going green helps competitive independent schools to attract students and local communities to attract residents and business. Students and staff members who eat better meals and spend their days in buildings with better air quality are absent less often, report higher satisfaction, and perform better. Schools become better appreciated as assets to their communities.
What Is Education For?
We have sought to identify schools that, in their own ways, are rising to the challenges posed by David W. Orr in “What Is Education For?”—To teach students how they are part of the natural world; to emphasize self-understanding and personal mastery; to recognize the responsibility to use knowledge well in the world; to understand the effects on people and communities of the application of knowledge; to provide role models of integrity, care, and thoughtfulness in institutions whose actions embody their ideals; and to recognize that the process of education is as important as its contents.

There is no single schooling-for-sustainability blueprint that is appropriate for all schools. Increasingly, though, we find ourselves drawn to affirmations that we have distilled into principles we describe in detail in Smart by Nature:
• Nature Is Our Teacher
• Sustainability Is a Community Practice
• The Real World Is the Optimal Learning Environment
• Sustainable Living Is Rooted in a Deep Knowledge of Place

The goal of education conducted according to these principles is cultivation in students of competencies of the head, heart, hands, and spirit.

To nurture communities that are in concert with nature, we must understand nature’s principles and processes, the deep facts of life: for instance, that matter cycles continually through the web of life, while living systems need a continual flow of energy; that diversity assures resilience; that one species’ waste is another species’ food; that human needs and achievements are both supported by and limited by the natural world.

Teaching this ecological knowledge, which is also ancient wisdom, requires seeing the world from the perspective of relationships, connectedness, and context. This way of thinking is emerging at the forefront of science through the evolving theory of living systems, which recognizes the world as a network of patterns of relationships and the planet as a living, self- regulating system.

Ecological study is inherently multidisciplinary, because ecosystems connect the living and nonliving worlds. Therefore, it is grounded not only in biology, but also in geology, chemistry, thermodynamics, and other branches of science. Human ecology, meanwhile, entails a range of other fields, including agriculture, economics, industrial design, and politics.

Knowledge and intellectual understanding are crucial, but they are never enough. Students also need to be able to adapt their knowledge to new circumstances and to use it to solve problems. To do so requires critical and creative thinking, as well as the ability to recognize the unquestioned assumptions and habits of thinking that can lead well-intentioned people to make ecologically catastrophic decisions.

It also requires competencies of the hands, for instance, the capacity to apply ecological knowledge to ecological design; practical skills to create and use tools and procedures for design and building; the ability to measure, assess, predict, and alter energy and resource consumption.

More, still, will be needed. Creating and maintaining sustainable communities will entail hard work over long periods, in the face of conflicting interests and passionate advocates. The strength to persist and the ability to succeed will call for competencies of the heart: deeply felt, not just understood, concerns for the well-being of the Earth and of living things; empathy and the ability to see from and appreciate multiple perspectives; commitments to equity, justice, inclusivity, and respect for all people; skills in building, governing, and sustaining communities.

Finally, we have identified a number of competencies of the spirit which we believe will characterize people who will be effective agents for sustainable living: a sense of wonder; the capacity for reverence; a felt appreciation of place; a sense of kinship with the natural world; and the ability to invoke that feeling in others.
Curriculum Is Anywhere That Learning Occurs
Nurturing these competencies depends on a definition of “curriculum” that is broader and more holistic than “a set of courses.” A team of educators from Yap, a South Pacific atoll, once visited the Center. As a parting gift, they left a poster proclaiming “Curriculum Is Anywhere Learning Occurs.” We concur wholeheartedly. The campus, the life of the school community, and that community’s relationships with the larger communities in which it is embedded are not just the context for curriculum. They are curriculum.
Schooling is everything the school does that leads to students’ learning—whether that learning is intended or not (the unintended learning is often the most powerful, especially when it contradicts the designed curriculum). Students learn from what the school serves for lunch, how it uses resources and manages waste, who is included in its decisions, how it relates to the surrounding community.
In Smart by Nature we explore four domains—food, the campus, community, and teaching & learning—that offer multiple avenues for the transformative work of schooling for sustainability. Each chapter includes profiles of schools or districts that have creatively addressed these topics and the strategies they have employed to overcome obstacles, create change within institutions, and incorporate schooling for sustainability into curricula.
The Sustainable Schools Project: Burlington, Vermont

Barnes Elementary School had a horrendous reputation. According to former principal Paula Bowen, “It’s in the inner city, with high poverty. It’s where refugees are first resettled. Anybody who had the wherewithal to get their kids into some other school typically did.” Now, though, “Barnes is the groovy school, the cool school. Test scores are up. Parents are asking for variances to get into Barnes.”
The spark behind the turnaround was the Sustainable Schools Project (SSP), a collaboration with nearby Shelburne Farms, a 1,400-acre working farm, National Historic Landmark, and national leader in schooling for sustainability. The project demonstrates the power of combining place-based learning, school-wide curriculum collaboration, partnerships with community organizations, and hands-on civic engagement.

In 2000 Vermont became the first state to incorporate sustainability and understanding place into its standards. In response to requests for assistance in teaching the new standards, Shelburne Farms designed professional development workshops and contributed the bulk of the writing of the “Vermont Guide to Education for Sustainability.”

The state standards had intentionally left the definition of “sustainability” broad, out of a belief that communities should create homegrown definitions. Shelburne Farms’ formulation, “Improving the quality of life for all—socially, economically, and environmentally—now and for future generations,” reflects the work of the Burlington Legacy Project, a citywide effort to envision a sustainable Burlington.

For Shelburne Farms, the link between sustainability and schooling is civic engagement. Former Sustainable Schools Project coordinator Erica Zimmerman identifies three elements essential to successfully grounding education in civic engagement: 7
Understanding connections. Learning gains meaning and depth and students begin to comprehend how human and natural systems work when they see the networks of interconnection within their community.
Connecting to place. Students need to know their own place before they can make the leap to thinking globally. With such knowledge, they have more reason to care for this world and become stewards of it.
Making a difference. In order to become motivated and engaged citizens, students need to know that they can make a difference. Schooling for sustainability depends on projects that are meaningful, developmentally appropriate, have academic integrity, and can be completed with the time and resources available to students.

Big Ideas and Essential Questions
Colleen Cowell, a dynamic fourth- and fifth-grade teacher at Champlain Elementary School on Burlington’s suburban fringe, attended one of Shelburne’s workshops. The content resonated with her, but she wanted to go beyond individual teachers’ putting the ideas of sustainability into practice. What if a whole school worked together? With her enthusiasm and strong support from principal Nancy Zahnhiser, Champlain and Shelburne Farms launched the Sustainable Schools Project. Three years later, it migrated to Lawrence Barnes.

Working with Shelburne Farms consultants, teachers identified nine “big ideas of sustainability” as a framework for curriculum integration: diversity, interdependence, cycles, limits, fairness and equity, connecting to place, ability to make a difference, long-term effects, and community. They created curriculum maps tracing these ideas from grade to grade and from the classroom to the schoolyard, the neighborhood, and the wider community. They identified “essential questions” that connect sustainability concepts across subject-matter boundaries. For instance:
• What do all living things need in order to live a safe, healthy, and productive life?
• What does it mean to be a citizen in our community?
• What connections and cycles shape our Lake Champlain ecosystem?
• How do we take care of the world, and how does the world take care of us?

The big ideas and essential questions helped recapture portions of the curriculum that testing mandates such as No Child Left Behind had squeezed out, connecting science to social studies and literacy. “We hoped to demonstrate how using the big ideas of sustainability to enhance existing curriculum was engaging and something they were already doing—with a slight twist,” says Shelburne Farms SSP staff member Tiffany Tillman.8 “Instead of a unit on living organisms,” explains Barnes third-grade teacher Anne Tewksbury-Frye, “you’re looking at it as a unit on systems and how those systems interact and how you can address other systems in a more global fashion.”

Teachers discovered the teaching potential of their own place. “Something I never did before SSP was to look at what resources we have on the school property,” one first-grade teacher told a researcher. “Now that I have some knowledge about vernal pools, I know I can make use of them. Before it was just a big wet spot in the playground, and now I know it is teeming with life.”9 Teachers discovered that children can learn more about nature from the squirrels they observe every day than from exotic animals they see only in books. The project connected teachers with local farmers, experts on the indigenous Abenaki people, artists, business people, and myriad other community members who have spoken to classes, lent resources, and contributed to student projects.

Healthy Neighborhoods/Healthy Kids
Place-based education, community connections, and civic engagement converge in Healthy Neighborhoods/Healthy Kids, a fourth- and fifth-grade project within SSP. Students brainstorm quality-of-life indicators in a neighborhood. Their lists have included green places with plants and flowers, habitat for animals, more trees for better air, healthy food, speed bumps to calm traffic, murals instead of graffiti, safe places to play, and spots for neighbors to meet.

Then they conduct neighborhood walks and create report cards, which they use to grade their communities. The walks can be eye-openers. Children from higher-income parts of the city discover that some classmates live without parks, tennis courts, stop signs, or other amenities they take for granted. But they also find features that are absent in their own neighborhoods, like community centers where kids can hang out.

The report cards become the starting point for civic engagement, leading to student- generated projects such as creating habitat for local birds, cleaning up streams, or organizing block parties to bring neighbors together. Students present their report cards to local government bodies. State Senator Tim Ashe, a former Burlington city council member, observed, “I think we grown-ups tend to take many things for granted, both good and bad, because we’ve learned to live with them. Kids are able to see for the first time a broken sidewalk, graffiti on a building wall, or a faltering street light and ask, with legitimate confusion, ‘Does it have to be this way?’”

The Case of the Missing Park
The students sometimes discover that they know more about the city than the authorities responsible for it. Barnes students found a park that the city had forgotten. They contacted the Parks and Recreation Department about this park, where they didn’t feel safe at night, to suggest installing lights. “We don’t have a park on South Champlain Street,” they were told. “Yes, you do. There’s a sign there that says ‘Parks & Rec Department.’ We want to tell you about it.”
Another time, children from Barnes reported that the street in front of the school had no School Zone sign, making for dangerous traffic. The city council drafted a resolution to put in a sign. The director of the public works department, a city council member, and the mayor came to unveil the sign and praise the students’ initiative. A small matter, perhaps, but the response and the media coverage were important to a neighborhood used to finding itself in news stories about crime and drugs.

After Barnes joined the Sustainable Schools Project, reading scores rose 22 percent and math scores 18 percent, parents became more involved, residents began to take pride in the neighborhood and to see the school as a resource within it, and Barnes became the “cool school.” In 2008 the school that parents once shunned was chosen by the district to become the nation’s first K–5 magnet school with a sustainability theme.

How Nature Can Make You
Kinder, Happier, and More Creative

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature,
he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
~ John Muir

How Nature Can Make You
and More Creative

–by Jill Suttie, syndicated from Greater Good, Mar 20, 2016

I’ve been an avid hiker my whole life. From the time I first strapped on a backpack and headed into the Sierra Nevada Mountains, I was hooked on the experience, loving the way being in nature cleared my mind and helped me to feel more grounded and peaceful.

But, even though I’ve always believed that hiking in nature had many psychological benefits, I’ve never had much science to back me up…until now, that is. Scientists are beginning to find evidence that being in nature has a profound impact on our brains and our behavior, helping us to reduce anxiety, brooding, and stress, and increase our attention capacity, creativity, and our ability to connect with other people.

“People have been discussing their profound experiences in nature for the last several 100 years—from Thoreau to John Muir to many other writers,” says researcher David Strayer, of the University of Utah. “Now we are seeing changes in the brain and changes in the body that suggest we are physically and mentally more healthy when we are interacting with nature.”

While he and other scientists may believe nature benefits our well-being, we live in a society where people spend more and more time indoors and online—especially children. Findings on how nature improves our brains brings added legitimacy to the call for preserving natural spaces—both urban and wild—and for spending more time in nature in order to lead healthier, happier, and more creative lives.

Here are some of the ways that science is showing how being in nature affects our brains and bodies.

1. Being in nature decreases stress

It’s clear that hiking—and any physical activity—can reduce stress and anxiety. But, there’s something about being in nature that may augment those impacts.

In one recent experiment conducted in Japan, participants were assigned to walk either in a forest or in an urban center (taking walks of equal length and difficulty) while having their heart rate variability, heart rate, and blood pressure measured. The participants also filled out questionnaires about their moods, stress levels, and other psychological measures.

Results showed that those who walked in forests had significantly lower heart rates and higher heart rate variability (indicating more relaxation and less stress), and reported better moods and less anxiety, than those who walked in urban settings. The researchers concluded that there’s something about being in nature that had a beneficial effect on stress reduction, above and beyond what exercise alone might have produced.

In another study, researchers in Finland found that urban dwellers who strolled for as little as 20 minutes through an urban park or woodland reported significantly more stress relief than those who strolled in a city center.

The reasons for this effect are unclear; but scientists believe that we evolved to be more relaxed in natural spaces. In a now-classic laboratory experiment by Roger Ulrich of Texas A&M University and colleagues, participants who first viewed a stress-inducing movie, and were then exposed to color/sound videotapes depicting natural scenes, showed much quicker, more complete recovery from stress than those who’d been exposed to videos of urban settings.

These studies and others provide evidence that being in natural spaces— or even just looking out of a window onto a natural scene—somehow soothes us and relieves stress.

2. Nature makes you happier and less brooding

I’ve always found that hiking in nature makes me feel happier, and of course decreased stress may be a big part of the reason why. But, Gregory Bratman, of Stanford University, has found evidence that nature may impact our mood in other ways, too.

In one 2015 study, he and his colleagues randomly assigned 60 participants to a 50-minute walk in either a natural setting (oak woodlands) or an urban setting (along a four-lane road). Before and after the walk, the participants were assessed on their emotional state and on cognitive measures, such as how well they could perform tasks requiring short-term memory. Results showed that those who walked in nature experienced less anxiety, rumination (focused attention on negative aspects of oneself), and negative affect, as well as more positive emotions, in comparison to the urban walkers. They also improved their performance on the memory tasks.

In another study, he and his colleagues extended these findings by zeroing in on how walking in nature affects rumination—which has been associated with the onset of depression and anxiety—while also using fMRI technology to look at brain activity. Participants who took a 90-minute walk in either a natural setting or an urban setting had their brains scanned before and after their walks and were surveyed on self-reported rumination levels (as well as other psychological markers). The researchers controlled for many potential factors that might influence rumination or brain activity—for example, physical exertion levels as measured by heart rates and pulmonary functions.

Even so, participants who walked in a natural setting versus an urban setting reported decreased rumination after the walk, and they showed increased activity in the subgenual prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain whose deactivation is affiliated with depression and anxiety—a finding that suggests nature may have important impacts on mood.

Bratman believes results like these need to reach city planners and others whose policies impact our natural spaces. “Ecosystem services are being incorporated into decision making at all levels of public policy, land use planning, and urban design, and it’s very important to be sure to incorporate empirical findings from psychology into these decisions,” he says.

3. Nature relieves attention fatigue
and increases creativity.

Today, we live with ubiquitous technology designed to constantly pull for our attention. But many scientists believe our brains were not made for this kind of information bombardment, and that it can lead to mental fatigue, overwhelm, and burnout, requiring “attention restoration” to get back to a normal, healthy state.

Strayer is one of those researchers. He believes that being in nature restores depleted attention circuits, which can then help us be more open to creativity and problem-solving.

“When you use your cell phone to talk, text, shoot photos, or whatever else you can do with your cell phone, you’re tapping the prefrontal cortex and causing reductions in cognitive resources,” he says.

In a 2012 study, he and his colleagues showed that hikers on a four-day backpacking trip could solve significantly more puzzles requiring creativity when compared to a control group of people waiting to take the same hike—in fact, 47 percent more. Although other factors may account for his results—for example, the exercise or the camaraderie of being out together—prior studies have suggested that nature itself may play an important role. One in Psychological Science found that the impact of nature on attention restoration is what accounted for improved scores on cognitive tests for the study participants.

This phenomenon may be due to differences in brain activation when viewing natural scenes versus more built-up scenes—even for those who normally live in an urban environment. In a recent study conducted by Peter Aspinall at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, and colleagues, participants who had their brains monitored continuously using mobile electroencephalogram (EEG) while they walked through an urban green space had brain EEG readings indicating lower frustration, engagement, and arousal, and higher meditation levels while in the green area, and higher engagement levels when moving out of the green area. This lower engagement and arousal may be what allows for attention restoration, encouraging a more open, meditative mindset.

It’s this kind of brain activity—sometimes referred to as “the brain default network”—that is tied to creative thinking, says Strayer. He is currently repeating his earlier 2012 study with a new group of hikers and recording their EEG activity and salivary cortisol levels before, during, and after a three-day hike. Early analyses of EEG readings support the theory that hiking in nature seems to rest people’s attention networks and to engage their default networks.

Strayer and colleagues are also specifically looking at the effects of technology by monitoring people’s EEG readings while they walk in an arboretum, either while talking on their cell phone or not. So far, they’ve found that participants with cell phones appear to have EEG readings consistent with attention overload, and can recall only half as many details of the arboretum they just passed through, compared to those who were not on a cell phone.

Though Strayer’s findings are preliminary, they are consistent with other people’s findings on the importance of nature to attention restoration and creativity.

“If you’ve been using your brain to multitask—as most of us do most of the day—and then you set that aside and go on a walk, without all of the gadgets, you’ve let the prefrontal cortex recover,” says Strayer. “And that’s when we see these bursts in creativity, problem-solving, and feelings of well-being.”

4. Nature may help you to be kind and generous

Whenever I go to places like Yosemite or the Big Sur Coast of California, I seem to return to my home life ready to be more kind and generous to those around me—just ask my husband and kids! Now some new studies may shed light on why that is.

In a series of experiments published in 2014, Juyoung Lee, GGSC director Dacher Keltner, and other researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, studied the potential impact of nature on the willingness to be generous, trusting, and helpful toward others, while considering what factors might influence that relationship.

As part of their study, the researchers exposed participants to more or less subjectively beautiful nature scenes (whose beauty levels were rated independently) and then observed how participants behaved playing two economics games—the Dictator Game and the Trust Game—that measure generosity and trust, respectively. After being exposed to the more beautiful nature scenes, participants acted more generously and more trusting in the games than those who saw less beautiful scenes, and the effects appeared to be due to corresponding increases in positive emotion.

In another part of the study, the researchers asked people to fill out a survey about their emotions while sitting at a table where more or less beautiful plants were placed. Afterwards, the participants were told that the experiment was over and they could leave, but that if they wanted to they could volunteer to make paper cranes for a relief effort program in Japan. The number of cranes they made (or didn’t make) was used as a measure of their “prosociality” or willingness to help.

Results showed that the presence of more beautiful plants significantly increased the number of cranes made by participants, and that this increase was, again, mediated by positive emotion elicited by natural beauty. The researchers concluded that experiencing the beauty of nature increases positive emotion—perhaps by inspiring awe, a feeling akin to wonder, with the sense of being part of something bigger than oneself—which then leads to prosocial behaviors.

Support for this theory comes from an experiment conducted by Paul Piff of the University of California, Irvine, and colleagues, in which participants staring up a grove of very tall trees for as little as one minute experienced measurable increases in awe, and demonstrated more helpful behavior and approached moral dilemmas more ethically, than participants who spent the same amount of time looking up at a high building.


5. Nature makes you “feel more alive”

With all of these benefits to being out in nature, it’s probably no surprise that something about nature makes us feel more alive and vital. Being outdoors gives us energy, makes us happier, helps us to relieve the everyday stresses of our overscheduled lives, opens the door to creativity, and helps us to be kind to others.

No one knows if there is an ideal amount of nature exposure, though Strayer says that longtime backpackers suggest a minimum of three days to really unplug from our everyday lives. Nor can anyone say for sure how nature compares to other forms of stress relief or attention restoration, such as sleep or meditation. Both Strayer and Bratman say we need a lot more careful research to tease out these effects before we come to any definitive conclusions.

Still, the research does suggest there’s something about nature that keeps us psychologically healthy, and that’s good to know…especially since nature is a resource that’s free and that many of us can access by just walking outside our door. Results like these should encourage us as a society to consider more carefully how we preserve our wilderness spaces and our urban parks.

And while the research may not be conclusive, Strayer is optimistic that science will eventually catch up to what people like me have intuited all along—that there’s something about nature that renews us, allowing us to feel better, to think better, and to deepen our understanding of ourselves and others.

“You can’t have centuries of people writing about this and not have something going on,” says Strayer.
“If you are constantly on a device or in front of a screen,
you’re missing out on something that’s pretty spectacular:
the real world.”

What Can You Learn About Your SOIL by TOUCH?

In an email from Stacey, I received this simple
but relevant, important, interesting and succinct
bit of knowledge about soil:

Air, water and soil along with the fire of the sun
…that’s what makes life on this planet possible.
Good land stewards like us mind all four.

That said, I’m personally a little biased towards soil
and the infinite life under our feet.
Plus, the FAO estimates, 95% of our food comes from soil.

To learn about soil, you can roll around in it if you like,
You can just go and handle it for a couple minutes.
Your choice.

What can you learn about your soil by touch?
For starters, you can learn the soil texture.
Soil texture tells you what kind of particles are present in soil
and how well the soil will retain and/or drain water.

Check out this quick video about soil texture
I dropped into a sunny San Diego community garden
to see what I could learn about their soil,
because I’m thinking of growing here this season.

To continue to learn about soil texture…
Colorado Extension has a great pdf cheat sheet.

Get on out there and feel the soil!

Keshe Excerpts ~ One Planet, One Race, One Nation 4m26s

Mehran Keshe, son of an X-ray engineer, was introduced to the world of radiation and nuclear science at a very young age. In 1981 he graduated from Queen Mary College, University of London, as a nuclear engineer specializing in reactor technology system control.

He has spent the years since then completing a system for the production of gravity and energy…He has covered all aspects of the design of a new plasma system from the very beginning to its present stage. This has included the design, the fuel, the testing and practical applications.


He has made this technology FREE TO THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH and has been conducting on-line classes for over 2 years. In October of 2015 the classes went public in a big way with the expansion of KNOWLEDGE SEEKERS WORKSHOPS thru which he is teaching folks how to do free energy and healing devises all at home. In Europe, the Keshe Foundation is a Certified Manufacturer of Medical Devises.
See    http://www.KesheFoundation.org    for video interviews and testimonials.


“The Keshe Foundation is an independent non-profit and non-religious organization founded by nuclear engineer M.T. Keshe that aims to develop new scientific knowledge, new technologies and new solutions to major global problems like famine, water shortage, lack of electrical power supply, climate change, and disease, through the use of specially developed  plasma reactors which will also give Mankind the real freedom to travel in deep Space.”

Live LOVE,

…and Prosper!!!

Nursing Home That’s Also a Dorm

More retirement and nursing homes are asking college students to move in, an arrangement that benefits everyone.

How about promoting
one or more in your area?!!!

Image Humanitas
Student Jordi Pronk shares a laugh with a fellow resident of the Humanitas home. (Humanitas)

On his way home from class, Jurriën Mentink takes a slight detour to pick up some fresh fillets from the fishmonger. His neighbor has an affinity for fish and, since he cycles by the market anyway, it’s really no trouble.

After paying, he hops back on his bike and heads home. He’ll visit his neighbor, have dinner, maybe do some studying or kick back to watch TV. Much like any other university student.

Except home is a nursing home.
And his neighbor just turned 93.

Mentink is one of six students living at Residential and Care Center Humanitas, a long-term care facility in the riverside town of Deventer in the eastern part of the Netherlands. In exchange for 30 hours of volunteer work per month, students are able to stay in vacant rooms there free of charge.Students in the Netherlands spend an average of 366 Euros (roughly $410) each month on rent, up from 341 Euros in 2012. Student housing is often cramped or dingy, and is increasingly difficult to come by. Amsterdam, for instance, was short almost 9,000 student rooms last year.

Meanwhile, long-term care facilities in the country are facing problems of their own. In 2012, the Dutch government decided to stop funding continuing care costs for citizens over the age of 80 who weren’t in dire need. A large group of aging adults, who had once benefited from a free all-inclusive ticket to a home like Humanitas, found themselves unable to shoulder the costs.

The new ruling resulted in fewer people seeking long-term care communities, making it difficult for those communities to stay afloat. In order for Humanitas to survive in this new environment, it needed a unique selling point. One that wouldn’t cost residents any more than they were already paying.

“That’s when I thought of a group of other people—in this case, students—that also don’t have much money,” says Gea Sijpkes, director and CEO at Humanitas.

“If they could get a room in Humanitas, they wouldn’t have to borrow so much money for their study. At the same time, I have some young people in the house, which makes Humanitas the warmest and nicest home in which everybody who needs care would want to live.”

Jurriën Mentink helps one of his neighbors at the intergenerational home. (Humanitas)

As part of their volunteer agreement, Mentink and the other students spend time teaching residents new skills, like email, social media, Skyping, and even graffiti art.

For the residents, the students represent a connection to the outside world. When the students come home from a class, concert, or party, they share those experiences with their elderly neighbors. The conversation moves from aches and pains to whether a student’s girlfriend will be staying the night.

Research links loneliness to mental decline and increased mortality, and regular social interaction with friends and family has been found to improve health in older adults. Saying hello, sharing a joke, bringing fish from the market: It’s the little joys of everyday life that the students bring to the seniors at Humanitas. But it isn’t always just the little things.

Mentink recalls being woken up in the middle of the night by a staff member. One of the residents had attacked a nurse. The resident was extremely agitated and nothing the staff did seemed to help.

“When she saw me, it was like 180 degrees around,” Mentink recalls. “She was instantly relaxed and happy to see me.” Mentink had gotten to know her while giving her computer help. They spent the rest of the night watching Dirty Dancing before Mentink headed off to work.

The intergenerational living model is beginning to gain in popularity. Since Humanitas opened its doors to students in 2012, two more nursing homes in the Netherlands have followed suit. And a similar program was recently introduced in Lyon, France.

In the United States, the Judson Manor retirement community in Cleveland started accepting students from the Cleveland Institutes of Art and Music several years ago. As at Humanitas, the students are integrated among the resident population and have access to all the same amenities.

To earn their keep, they participate in the musical arts committee, assist staff therapists, and volunteer at various events throughout the year. Judson also requires them to give quarterly performances at each of their three campuses.

One student at Judson interviewed every resident, spending over an hour with each one, and compiled a keepsake book. She’s now working on a second volume to include additional residents.

Another student became so close with a resident that she asked her to be the flower girl at her wedding.  The older woman declined, physically unable to make the trek to the West Coast, but threw a party for the couple at Judson instead.

Matthew Kaplan, a professor of intergenerational programs and aging at Pennsylvania State University, says these relationships can acquire far more depth than is possible with “the one-shot-only activity, where kids come into the long-term care facility, sing a song and then go home.”

That may be nice, he says, “but it’s not until [the older and younger people] have a real relationship—which takes a lot of interaction—that it becomes meaningful.”

Free Energy in exchange for World Peace is NOW HAPPENING!!!

“…Even more so …NOT ‘FREE Energy’,
rather ‘ENERGY’, ‘FREE’ as we need it.”
~ M.T, Keshe

Free energy
in exchange for world peace.

Together we can
end war, end hunger, end suffering.

Together we can
explore space.

Together we can
explore the Universal Community.

Together we can
take the next step.

One Planet
One Race
One Nation.

~The 3rd World Ambassadors Meeting for Peace~
Unobserved by many, this last week of October 2015
changed the world for the better
commitments to Peace and freedom
from lack, control, and limitations on all levels.

It’s not in all countries as yet,
however commitments and inroads
have been made in many countries
who truly Honor Peace NOW,
and not as yet with those talking & lie telling
out of both sides of their mouths!
FULL Planetary peace in soon!

This is the Free Gift to Humanity from
Keshe Foundation SpaceShip Institute, KfSSI.

Excerpt from Session 5>>>***1h20m45s thru 1h22m34s:

“You have the river of the Universe
within your hands.
He has released it.
It’s beyond our control!
How are we going to handle it!!?!”
{i.e. How can we now continue to control them,
the masses?}”

So what has been happening? M.T. Keshe quote, …one answer …”…as I was talking to the top man, at NASA years ago, and I remember the position, I was standing outside, nearly outside the Central Station at Antwerp , this goes back to 2004-2005, and he said to me:
‘Mr Keshe, we have a problem. The problem is, if we accept your technology which we know is correct, if we take on your technology, what are we going to do with the 7,000 propulsion scientists in the Propulsion Lab at NASA?” So, we have to block you to guarantee the jobs.’ ”


To bring us this gift, Mehran Tavakoli Keshe and his Family
have gone thru much tribulation
over the decades of research, discovery and presentation.
Having moved from Iran to free this government from lies about having Nuclear testing {which is not the case, it is Plasmic}, then to Belgium where he was turned upon and labeled a terrorist, jailed in Canada while seeking asylum, then obtaining asylum in Italy,
Mehran Keshe and his Family have survived
thru 5 attempted assassinations:
2 by gunfire, 1 by poison, 1 by car bomb.

Bless You, Mehran Keshe, in your Passion and Love of freeing Mother Earth and all her BEings!!!


{Note: They have since moved to Italy from Belgium.}

***WATCH exclusive interview with in everyday language of GREAT explanation on what FREE PLASMIC {co-creative magnetic-gravitational} FIELD IS & how it works in conjunction with Keshe Foundation SpaceShip Institute and for every day use on Earth too, in elimination of hunger, thirst, dis-ease, & war!

Interestingly, when I did a wikipedia search, this is what showed up:
Did you mean: kesha foundation The page “Keshe Foundation” does not exist. You can ask for it to be created. {What keeps it from disappearing?} There were no results matching the query.
Did you mean: kesha The page “Keshe” does not exist. You can ask for it to be created, but consider checking the search results below to see whether the topic is already covered {…which it was not!}

The purpose of this post is to familiarize those of interest , curiousity and/or skepticism with what it is that happened during the week that changed the world for the better, freedom from limitations.

This post condenses about 28 hours of KFSSI Blueprint Teaching on-line thru live video streaming during the period of Monday Oct.25, 2015 thru Oct.30, 2015. See excerpts below.

The Session outlines below contain a small part of the technical, background, “how it all works”,
& sidelight information.
Do not attempt building units until You have much more info than in the outlines below, which only expose interesting and simple technical info for those who are technically and/or “time” challenged.
Asterisk * means be sure to watch this one!
The more***=importante!

Nano = 10 to the minus 9 power which is the size of 1 atom.
Caustic means: having the ability to create nano structure.
“The Human Body is one of the very best caustics…”
GANS, Gas As Nano State,
is a pasty carrier agent/living organism whose signature makeup creates various and differing vibrational compositions in the nano particle fields.
GANS is NOT a dis-ease of the central nervous system as defined by mainstream medical science.

 KFSSI Blueprint Teaching Week AM October 26 Mon AM Session 1
This link explains and shows the “how to” of the making of the units at home.
published by linkmein 3h4m10s, begins 2m40s {only visual showing is of planet graphic until at 5m40s}

pub by KFSSI 3h21m04s, begins 19m50s

 Excerpts & notes from Session 1
***2m40s thru 6m22s ~
Introduction, updates and explanations.
“Today and this week altogether is a special time for the Foundation and maybe a change of course for Humanity.” M Keshe. This is new and we need to teach so that this new system and new science Plasma System & why You need to know.
It has to be done the way it is designed. It has to be done correctly.
You have to understand how plasma works & interacts in order to utilize it!
***6m22s thru 22m56s
~2KW {kilowatt} UNIT cannot be overloaded. 2KW MAX!!! Whatever load You demand from it over time, ONCE YOU LEARN IT, You will achieve it. Leave it to climatize. Ask electrician, someone who knows how. to connect it. Add about 1KW & leave it for a period, 1-2 weeks +. Power is D.C. {Direct Current.} NOT AC {Alternating Current as in normal house}. Leave lights on all the time. Meters gradually come to a halt!
**1h5m20s thru 1h12m1s
~14 Gauge (1.6mm) copper wiring is best for power production, 2kw startups: make copper turns anti-clockwise {counter-clockwise}. On 1st coil spring (Magnetical~ outside coil), 70 to 80 turns w/slight gap between on 2nd wire 150-160 turns (Gravitational~inside coil). Need 3 sets of double coils + 1 more = 4. smaller is to fit into larger with a little room free between them. This will all be shown in later Sessions and in the download BLUEPRINT, and will be much clearer and easier, as also in the excerpt below.
*1hr 29m30s thru 1h41m
~ a lot has been left out for simplicity sake in the abridged offering. If You will be building your own units or for others, be sure You get full training under your belt first!!! 3 sets of wires and caustic. See NANO Creation videos with Armen beginning at 1h34.m3s.

***1hr47m thru 1hr57m7s ~ Time for all to be equal. Shipments on way to Palestine & Africa. This time we do more than teach You to fish, we fish together so that no one will go hungry.
No government at any level can stop You. …No regulation, greed, corruption, or control can stop You with this system.
Now You see how simple it has become.


*** KFSSI Blueprint Teaching Week PM October 26 Mon PM Session 2
This link explains the general-ness of the easy science, practical PLANETARY LIFE CHANGING PLASMA ENERGY with some demonstrations and more theoretical than this morning session.

pub by KFSSI~2h19m25s,begins at 20 seconds.

Excerpts & notes from Session 2
intro, news, updates& releases.
13m05s thru 32m59s~matter we have done all we can do with it for the situations we were in, then went into atomic age, the nuclear age which is the center of the atom. NOW, the essence of the atom which is the plasma. Including the stupid term, the God Particle which means, OH God!, it does not exist.   …so they can milk society for research money to do what they want with. They made a lot of money for a lot of people which does nothing. ALL PARTICLES ARE OF THE SAME DYNAMIC SYSTEMS in the circle….protons, neutrons, electron, Earth, Sun, galaxy; creating false names for the same order in same systems. Names have been here to misinform humanity for a few peoples titles. Yet they are not men enough to admit they made mistakes. They want to change names on things so they can keep their patents in value, rather than eliminated because of bad/misleading/fake science. What is the mystery in “Plasma”. There is none. There is no magic if You understand it! It’s that simple. One pulls in (Gravitational in red !~ attracts/holds onto) and one pushes out {Magnetic in black~ rejects/shielding/separation}. See 2 spirals on white board at 28m5s. See magnets in Keshe’s hands at 30m00s.
37m36s thru 40m44s~ note magnets actions accommodating each other, no burning of fuels! In the Universe, we must accommodate, not fight against. That is why mainstream medicine DOES NOT WORK! It fights rather than accommodates>
*40m45s thru 1h5m50s~ See easy & superb metaphoric example using toilet paper roll. then continue for the more on the use and benefits for Humanity & Mother Earth.
***Cancers can be reversed in 3 minutes max.
***2h12m5s thru 2h13m01s~See details of Drill motor rotation for VERY RAPID COIL WINDINGS from within segment below:
***2h7m5s thru 2h19m30s~show & tell of coils and their formation into what is needed for within the units. 3 sets of inner & outer coils with smaller coils also within the larger sized coils. Conversation with Richard in Vancouver B.C. Canada.


KFSSI Blueprint Teaching Week AM Oct 27 2015 Tues AM Session 3
This deals with some theory and also more “how to” with technical demonstrations on coiling and coating the copper wires and plates from start follow to ready for assembly. …plus much more.

pub by KFSSI~2h29m33s, begins at 12 seconds


Excerpts from Session 3
***40s thru 7m58s~Mr. Keshe opening remarks.   “…totality to cover all needs of man in space…”. 
Feedback coming in, states that health institutes, hospitals and clinics who research this are readily accepting this for it’s use, because the results are so prominent and quick. No need to test for months. Free Energy application is only the beginning of this New Plasma Science. TODAY the first batches of Magrav units which have been paid for are being shipped, with balance by Friday. NOW NO WAY THIS PROCESS CAN BE FURTHER STOPPED!
8m1s thru 24m01s~
commentary, background info, and current status, this weeks projections, along with some sharings and initial early showing of work to date.
24m02s~Starting the next step. Use ocean salt water to have better results. If You live near big seas, then use that water. People are reporting better results than with distilled water. DO NOT USE HOUSEHOLD TAP WATER. Feel free to further explore more of the technical information in this section on your own.
1h19m9s thru 1h19m20s~view of the correct consistency of the GANS paste. GANS colors are determined by the material used and the environment it is in,
*1h37m45s thru 1h38m20s~the galaxy is no different than a cell in structural layout. It’s up to You to develop your understanding and change the ways of human and fulfilling destiny. It’s up to You to understand the totality, then You understand there is no magic.
NASA will not achieve things successfully with the current way the are using plasma science.
1h40m33s thru 1h43 ~question on thickness/diameter of wiring? Keshe >”You choose, the thicker wire the more plasma transfer. That’s all the difference. Brennan online to explain pens with different shape of coils for pens, etc.

NOTES: from miscellaneous places in this teaching:
The Balanced exchange of the Plastic Field:
“What I do not need I give away.
What You need You can take.
What You do not need, You can give away.
What I need I can take.”

“Change the spins on Fields by changing the environment.”

“REMEMBER: Theoretical physics/science has made a lot of assumptions creating PHD papers. Electrons have been pure guesswork. It’s on what THEY THINK that THEY have observed!”

“Change of Polarity in social systems is from its sister and nothing else”.

“Space is a Beautiful place, if You play by its rules, not force yourself in position by ignoring/breaking rules.”

For essential oil property transfer, dip the tip in oil to be transferred vibrationally.

End of AM Session 3.

*** KFSSI Blueprint Teaching Week PM Oct 27 2015 Tues PM Session 4
This deals with the science of the human body and others in their Plasmic Fields. Vibrational field changes and tools for self healing, and regeneration of cells making parts (toes fingers, heart valves, etc.) MEDICINES, SURGERIES, OR OPERATIONS ARE NO LONGER NEEDED.
published by linkmein~1h5m13s, begins 2m30s

pub by KFSSI~2h25m57s, begins 2m30s


Excerpts from Session 4 ~This is very much BEYOND today’s mainstream medical practices which is based on old and flawed sciences.
***3m01s thru 16m2s~
Tuesday afternoons are usually health sessions and anyone can join for learnings on health and applications of technologies regarding health. On alternative Tues our Friends from China join with us. Our Friends from Mexico Join with us to teach us nearly every week. And also assistance with children on health application. “The body is a Plasma FIeld….”    See graphic drawings on video whiteboard     “…just one big long sausage in a vacuum state…” “The body of the man, on his own, is the Universe, in his {human’s} own vacuum condition”. Results show up in minutes & hours: regeneration of limbs & organs now available to happen. NOW WE KNOW THE SECRET!
***10m20s thru 12m20s
~{included in above} very rare chronic FIBROMYALGIA: she had dark finger and dark wrist, excrutiating pain in hand and neck, immobility of had & wrist. CLEARED UP {about 90%? ~L’iv’s figure} in 5 minutes use of plasmic field “pen”.
**16m2s thru 21m40s
 How Lizard reproduces tale & how brain observes it. It’s all about bringing the Plasma FieIld into Balance. Finger replacement technology exists. We have done it. We are releasing info on 100,000 plates to hospitals around the world later in November for their choice to use it.
*21m40s thru 29m06s~AMPUTATIONS ARE NO LONGER NECESSARY. Plasmacally taking pain away is a key.   So we don’t have to take pharmaceuticals into space. No pharmacies on Mars. ;>)
***29m 10s thru 33m43s~We do not have to sell this. My richness is in my Soul. People around the Keshe Foundation are dedicated to Serve. …A new Path of Living. Keshe Foundation has put PLASMA PATENT OPEN TO PUBLIC DOMAIN FOREVER. No more hidden secrets,
*33m44s~There are many more nuggets for You explore on your own thru the end of this Session #4 ending at 1h5m13s

**30m15s thru 36m59s~graphic on white board on how the coils work & creating the center sun for continuous supply for decades, using the paste condition GANS, the source of energy. {SP3dianmondstructure GANS}
*40m20s thru 43m~shows 3 stack trays of stack & coil placement in unit.
**43m50~45m38s~gives 3 Golden Rules. 1.) the correct twist all the way; 2.) when connect 1 end to another by twist 2 time and close loop end. 3.)cutting point with water tip seal at end;
**45m40s thru 49m59s ~sealed Field IS UN-DESTRUCTABLE & WILL RUN FOR CENTURIES.
51m thru 54m20s~connect 3 trays to each other; each has entry point and exit point
*1h16m50s~1h22m14s how much power do You want?…You can’t play football with a baby…need 2-3-4 week build up, SLOWLY! Plasma is DC {Direct Current} not AC {Alternating Current} IF system gets overloaded and quits. You need to give it time to reset itself. Review of system guarantee. When You understand, the system gives You totality, You choose what You want.
***1h20m45s thru 1h22m34s~ You have the river of the Universe within your hands. THIS IS THE BIGGEST FEAR OF GOVERNMENTS!He has released it. It’s beyond our control. How are we going to handle it!
*2h22m45s thru 2h32m21s
~showing of tools and drill motor with rods for EASY & QUICK COILS, etc.: for demo see Session 2. Answers to questions. (Richard in Vancouver B.C., Max Chandor in Switzerland)

pub by KFSSI 2h19m26s ~

Excerpts from Session 6 ~ This session is more on theoretical than technical,
**2m30s thru 16m
~World of matter vs World of plasma. The work of Plasma is Not Guesswork. It deals with the choices of the possibilities and the Fields it is operating in.
Plasma has 1 purpose >>> to keep structure in tact; to guarantee behavior according to preplanned structure of information!  Universe is a free state of Plasma. Old science vs new Plasma  Field science.
16m thru bandwidth cutout at 24m~understanding the part of emotion in all of this; no more cellular rejection come from?; balance obtained by satisfying emotion of the cell: change behavior by changing emotion; when we emotionally move we convert our physical motion to move in physicality;
*1h7m18s thru 1h8m41~viewing newly made plasma capacitors & “medicinal” pen from Philippines.
***1h7m40s thru 1h21m19s
~ “Interactive ‘Brain of Man’ devise” & How far the Human Race will move very soon! What You are short of You are given! WHERE DOES PLASMA TECHNOLOGY TAKE HUMANITY? Nuclear is obsolete as the donkey!~You just need to think about it and You create it!!! {instant manifestation!!!}
**1h22m thru 1h29m
~Referencing brain functions & emotions & plasma field. Never mix “bloods in your systems”. What is good for You may not be good for another>
1h33m thru 1h38m16s~ what is the purpose depends on your need; listen to example of banana;do you want nutrition energy or do you want something to eat? You can do this with your finger. God Particles! What do You trust in your Self.
1h38m18s thru 1h41m17s~Question asked: How do I give from my Soul?
Humans are already nano-coated. Plasma technology is totally different than all other technologies. You ride on the wind in the magnetic flow line without any resistances. In matter You get resistance. You have to start understanding the deeper understanding of Plasma.
**1h41m25s thru 1h59m04s~
show & review of coils & a couple systems in early process. (Max is France & Chandor in Switzerland.)
*1h59m18s thru 2h2m10s~ see demo of rather sophisticated home devised easy system of 1 coil made with another inside.

*16m~ if you do not have full nano cover on your rings, your rings will not operate.
*45m45s~send us new info, findings or differences,
we collectively share and add knowledge as it is all being tested to improve pool of info.
47m~CAR UNITS have no capacitors in unit. …consider case by case.
*1h22m 1h27m~cooling & heating; You do not fell the temperature, feel the heat in the blood but not in nano field, so you can hold it in your hand with copper inside molten.
1h28m thru 1h29m~Plasma field nano particles…like popcorn in a box, once popped You cannot fit it back into the bos. It just flows over.
**3h29m thru 3h32m~In an apartment building 1 unit gets nano coating then moves on and nano coats whole building. SOON EVERYONE GETS FREE ENERGY!
***3h33~need people who work with animals to help understand animal psychology & more. Pesticide side of agriculture, water purification systems extraction specialists
~ take out toxicity without using chemicals, rather using gravitational magnetic Plasma field instead.
*3h38m thru 3h40m~ how to protect a building from an earthquake shaking.
***3h48m20s~ (very interesting segment thru end, begins here with student from Bulgaria). Created controversy with World Health Organization, so W.H.O. would not collaborate with Keshe, and W.H.O. then confiscated all KFSSI material on the subject at hand on Ecoli and other viruses & bacteria.

Tribute to BeLoved Brother Russell Means ~ Republic of Lakota

…free to be responsible. “

Russell Means tribute ~ Republic of Lakota

Russell Charles Means (November 10, 1939 – October 22, 2012) was an actor {perhaps best known for his performance in “Last of the Mohicans”}, political & rights activist to come to aid for all, as he traveled across the planet
with LOVE in his Heart.
In Russell’s own words:
“Hello my relatives. What I have to say about myself. I have been to prison, I have been a thief. I’ve been a doper, a dope dealer. And I’ve also have been to college. I am an accountant and a computer programmer, as well as getting my Doctorate in Philosophy. I have been everywhere in the strata of white society. I’ve even hung around with multi-millionaires when there were no billionaires. I am an Indian, and American Indian. I prefer American Indian too. Anyone born in the Western Hemisphere is a Native American. I am an Ogallala Lakota from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation which is still designated in the Defense Department as ‘Prisoner of War Camp #44’. You see, Indian people have no rights, no constitutional rights on the Indian Reservations what so ever, no freedom of speech, no privacy.
WOW! You Americans are in the same boat.
…I also Belong to ‘The Republic of Lakota’ …”

The passing of Russell Means
was a lose for the world

Part of the post below is directly copied from this link.

On October 22, 2012, Indian rights activist Russell Means passed on after a magnificent life of struggle to better the lives of American Indians. Means had a tremendous impact on Native American struggles of the latter part of the 20th century and he will be sorely missed, but his passing was a huge loss not just for Native America, not just for all of America, but for the world. He became the warrior conscience of the U.S. as a nation and exposed the oppression of American Indians to the globe.

Means reawakened Native people to the need for direct action in dealing with the “powers that be.” Contrary to popular belief, there had been a long unbroken string of Native activism throughout the 20th century, but the government-leaning mainstream news media had for the most part managed to keep information of Indian resistance hidden behind the “Buckskin Curtain.” What distinguished Means and the American Indian Movement (AIM) was that they were able to break through the “Curtain” with justifiably sensational tactics that the media could not ignore. The 1973 Wounded Knee occupation and other protests had to be covered, and that riveted the moral conscience of America and the entire world. All just-minded citizens, of all races, creeds and colors, morally supported the actions of AIM. Public opinion in the U.S. was on the side of Means and the warriors of AIM. One thing that was said about AIM in those days was that they would never lose a fight by default; when called upon AIM always showed up.

It has been said that American Indians are the “miners’ canary” which indicates that justice in this society can be measured by how Native people are treated. Given that criterion this country is still sadly lacking in that category.

As for Means, he started out working in an office as a computer operator. He was trained as an accountant, was a straight A student and was awarded a scholarship to Arizona State University. Indian youth, in particular, should find this inspirational at a time when less than half of Native young people graduate from high school.

Means became a steadfast fighter for Indian rights. Among his many accomplishments: He founded the first radio station on his reservation and the first independent health clinic. He was also was a founder of the International Treaty Council which was responsible for the United Nations Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which impacted peoples worldwide.

In the mid-1970s, I had the priceless opportunity to meet Means, Vernon and Clyde Bellecourt, Jimmie Durham and others prominent in the American Indian Movement, at an AIM rally. I actually remember him as rather quiet. In fact, I don’t recall him even speaking on stage at the event.

Means was not only an activist, but also an avid painter, screenplay writer and actor. In these roles he always drew attention to Native issues both contemporarily and historically. He was also an author, writing a several-hundred-page autobiography entitled “Where White Men Fear to Tread.” The book, written in language that ranges from the sublime to the earthy, is filled with profound philosophical and political insights. It is a huge indictment of racism and an expose of the appalling conditions in Indian Country that gave rise to AIM. Although I don’t agree with all of Means’ political views in the volume (specifically on Nicaragua and socialism) it is otherwise a stellar work indicting the U.S. for its horrific treatment of Native people.

Uncompromising to the end, when Means was first diagnosed with esophageal cancer in the summer of 2011 he announced he was eschewing mainstream medical treatment in favor of traditional Native medicine. Through it all, he remained the iconic symbol of American Indian resistance to the ongoing centuries of the race war conducted against Native Americans by the U.S. government.

Means reinforced the iconic image of the intrepid, dauntless Indian warrior willing to risk all consequences in his endless quest for indigenous justice. Exposed in his odyssey was the federal government’s equally endless quest to silence him “by any means necessary.” He was shot, stabbed (all assassination attempts), imprisoned, harassed incessantly, but he never slowed down. Means was a source of boundless inspiration to all who were committed to “The Cause.” Means has walked on, but the movement lives on.

Wisdom, philosophical and practical quotes of
Russell from some of the video links below:

“Mother Earth has been abused, the powers have been abused,
this cannot go on forever.
No theory can alter that simple fact.
Mother Earth will retaliate,
the whole environment will retaliate,
and the abusers will be eliminated.
Things come full circle, back to where they started.
That’s revolution.
~ Russell Means


“It’s only gotten worse. We are a people, ‘out of sight, out of mind’. Only when we stand up for ourselves do people begin to listen.

“Now, I know the history of the white man. I know it from his very beginnings since he was put in Europe. Only when based on corporate greed., OK. I know how he built this country, his America. It’s an insidious evil country, based on death, all for corporate greed.

“The facts are American history. The United States of America is the only country in the world that’s been at war every year of it’s existence. …EVERY YEAR OF ITS EXISTENCE, 136 years, every year its been at war, sometimes multiple wars.”

“In the Republic of Lakota, the provisional government that I had, we are promising our people nothing.   Our people have been promised every by Christian missionaries. They’ve been promised everything by government agents. They’ve been promised by everyone who wanted to make money off our backs. And then we get nothing,
So, when we withdrew with our {broken} treaties from the United States, we said that we were not going to promise our people anything, we are going to DO. We are going to be an example.”

“And also we want to convince white people who want to be free and might want to move here, and there’s white people here. We tell them You have to rule by consensus. You cannot protect individual rights with a majority cause there always is going to be a minority. You are going to have to rule by consensus. Now You can do it small, or You can do it large, but as long as its done by consensus.”

” Oh we face death, we have the lowest live expectancy
on Earth, ON EARTH MAN!
We are worse of than Haiti, healthwise and povertywise. Our men only live to 49.3 years.   The Bureau of Indian Affairs of the United States government runs our lives …
We are not allowed to run our lives.
Only 22 families control our land, 100 hectares. The rest of us are poor. The 22 families are mostly white people..”

“What I want to do is save our language with the young. We are trying to establish LaKota only schools. No English allowed, because as You know, and that any that speaks another language knows, the English language is very primitive. You can not translate adequately translate any language into English because it’s so primitive.”

“What i have to say to people all over the world is (because I lived in the belly of the monster)  You have to stay home. You have to improve your world. until it’s in balance. And don’t understand, I do not understand, any religion that condones violence. I just don’t understand that. I know the patriarchal world loves violence. The United States is the perfect example.”

“We grandmothers have come
from far and wide
to speak the knowledge
we hold inside.
In many languages we have been told
it is time to make the right changes
for our families,
for the lands we love.
We can be the voice for the voiceless.
We are at the threshold.
We are going to see change.
If we can create the vision in our heart,
it will spread.
As bringers of light,
we have no choice but to join together.
As women of wisdom
we cannot be divided.
When the condor meets the eagle
—thunderbirds come home.”

“Handed down from my people
was a story that
the only duty left to us
from the ancient ones
was the duty of prayer,
so, I became a prayer person.”

Joining Prayers

Agnes Pilgrim, From the Great Forests of the American Northwest

It is exciting to be making history by venturing into the world praying to make a difference. Yet there are still many things that I don’t talk about as I’m afraid the Creator will quit helping me. In the beginning my people could become invisible, shape change, and talk to the animals. I believe what happened is they began to abuse their gift so the Creator stripped it from them. So, I try to be careful.

I travel to a lot of different lands being a “voice for the voiceless.” All things created need a voice. I am called to pray for the Bengal tigers, for animals in Africa, for wolves, for salmon, and for the Ganges River in India. I went to Australia to pray for the Murry Darling River and its polutions. I prayed for the Condors and now they are coming back after being gone for over 200 years from Oregon.

My tribe sends me to areas that need prayer or blessings. They send me to christen a ship, to burial places, to testify for monuments, and to fight for special plant life. I’ve been called to lead prayers to stop clear-cut logging and to lobby in Washington D.C. to save our Siskiyou Monument here in Oregon which has plant life that grows nowhere else in the world. So far we’ve succeeded. We will continue to struggle to save some of our beautiful spiritual places. The prayers will help.

I’m the oldest living female left of the Rogue River Indians who lived in Southern Oregon for over 20,000 years. As a registered member of my tribe, The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians for many, many years I have served on tribal committees always fighting for cultural and traditional improvements. My children and I are all traditional First Nation natives and we “walk our talk.” I’ve been at death’s door, I have survived cancer since 1982. I asked my Creator to let me live because my family needs me and I’ve got a lot to do. I said if you let me live I’ll keep busy the rest of my life. And I’m certainly doing that!

Years ago when I was about forty-five, I experienced a restlessness. This sensation was not only present in my waking hours but also in the dream time. There was a force pulling me toward a spiritual path. I was told to cleanse my inner-self. Ultimately, I did what I call a “dying to self.” But first I fought this inner-calling, thinking I wasn’t worthy to do it. Looking back, however, I can see where I began to change. I started to fly around and I went to all my six children and asked them to forgive me for any hurts I caused them. I asked them to voice anything they wanted to me. I told them how much I loved them and that I would pray for them. I know I made mistakes as a parent – there wasn’t any parent school to go to.

Yet I still hadn’t committed myself to walk this “spiritual” path. I was still arguing to my Creator. Finally one day my friend, who is a psychiatrist, told me to stop fighting this path and resign myself and just do it. So, I did. It was like a big load was lifted off of me.

Handed down from my people was a story that the only duty left to us from the ancient ones was the duty of prayer, so, I became a prayer person. The Creator has answered many, many prayers and I giving blessings for allowing me to be a mediator.

Prayer is needed throughout the World. It is time we step forward and join prayers with people around the globe. Together we can stop the abuse of women and the molestation of children, hunger, overgrazing, protection for our medicinal plants, and drug abuse. We can join together no matter what our religious or spiritual beliefs are. We can join together and fight to save our Earth Mother and salvage our own existence.

It is time to take action now if we want to help. We need not for one moment, limit ourselves about what we can do. We must give support and encouragement to each other and to whomever we meet on our path. Love people unconditionally and add their voices and prayers to ours. People need to be encouraged to use their voice. The Creator will hear our cries and turn the dark side around and speak to the terrorists. Together we can make a difference.

Yes, we have a lot of work to do to have harmony and peace. We have many goals set before us but we can accomplish them by working together. Together we have gifts to bring by teaching what is sacred. We are all in this “leaky canoe” together so we need to be a united force to be reckoned with and we will keep on keeping on until our “hearts are on the ground”


Bless you
Walk in beauty

“A Voice for the Voiceless”

Grandma Aggie is the descendant of tribal leaders, both political and spiritual, so she works hard to keep tradition alive and to renew it, as with the Sacred Salmon Ceremony that she has brought back to her homeland in the Rogue River Valley of southwest Oregon after 140 years.

Honored as a “Living Treasure” by her tribe, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz, and as a “Living Cultural Legend” by the Oregon Council of the Arts, Grandma Aggie is an exceptionally clear and strong speaker whose no-nonsense eloquence has touched people of many different cultures in the US and around the world. An Ambassador for our Mother Earth, she is a voice for the voiceless, seeking to prevent spiritual blindness by helping us to remember the ways of living that we all share as people of the Earth.

There’s lots of spiritual work to be done these days, and Grandma Aggie’s doing her best to keep up. The goal of this website is to keep you informed of the latest, so that she can be in your prayers as you are in hers.

For a good written introduction to who she is, see From Grandma Aggie, an article from World Pulse Magazine.

And for a great speech, see the talk she gave at the Earth & Spirit Conference in Portland, in the Videos section.

To learn what she’s been up to in the last year, especially since the Sacred Salmon Ceremony in June, see Blessings & News, 12/05.

The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers is one new activity that seems very promising, and there are now at least 6 websites that describe it (see Links). The section, 13 Grandmothers’ Council, provides a brief summary. But first, see this very inspiring excerpt from a video in process, For the Next Seven Generations: The Grandmothers Speak.

Photos – 7 Generations Family photos spanning 7 generations and 125 years, from Grandfather Olhatha, George Harney, first Chief of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz in the 1880s to Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter Natalie Solis in 2005 can be viewed in this section as a slide show or individual photos.

Photos – Spiritual Work Thirty-six years of dedication to the spirit have brought Grandma Aggie into a wide variety of lessons and opportunities to give. From pow-wows to environmental conferences, from schools to health centers, Aggie has been busy reaching out to people of all cultures and ages, including people as diverse as Martha Stewart, Bruce Babbitt (former Secretary of the Interior), Gloria Steinem and Alice Walker at special events like the Sacred Salmon Ceremony and the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers A few of these are shown in this section as a slide show or individual photos.

The Past Events section is a first start at recording some of the key events in 81 years of Grandma Aggie’s life. But It’s hard to complete. New things of great potential just keep on happening.

Please check out the Links section for lots of related stories on other websites.

And the Calendar for upcoming events.
