Happy New Year 2016 and I will do two talks in Bangkok on Jan 8th!

Happy New Year!!!!!!
Happy New Day!!!!
Hope you are enjoying your moments.

Just finished a nourishing retreat at Thai Plum Village, and now heading to Pun Pun in Chiang Mai. I've heard quite a bit about Pun Pun and Panya in permaculture and other alternative circles.

For those who are curious
"Punpun is a small organic farm and learning center in north of Thailand, where we practice sustainable living through seed saving, natural building and appropriate technology."
See below for an amazing TEDx talk by one of the founders.

After that, will ride a sleeper train back to Bangkok and do two talks. One at SUAN MOKE temple. Another at a new community center by a engaged buddhist activist friend (still waiting for details). Below is the ad for Suan Moke. I'm planning to talk about urban permaculture in Tokyo, Portland, mindfulness experiments, nonviolence (ahimsa), and how to transform urban culture through the giftivism (gift economy activism).

 "Finding Peace in the Inner Landscape"   

Kai Sawyer, a permaculturalist and practicing engaged buddhist now living in Tokyo has been working to help find peace in ourselves and in the metropolis.   In Bangkok we face similar challenges, confronted both in our minds and in our city with pollution, chaos, and distraction.   

Here from this young inspiring practitioner/ activist about his journey in this process and how he is helping others to wake up to the possibilities.
