Earthship Academy Acceptance

I am very excited to announce that on Monday I received a letter of acceptance to the Earthship Academy.

I am very excited to be given the chance to get deeper into Earthship Biotecture.

My highest hope is that by becoming involved with Earthship Biotecture I will help bring awareness to the potential of manifesting a post-scarcity economy, where all material needs are met and people are able to exclusively pursue their own creative and innovative interests, and on a hippier note, revel in the evolutionary journey that we are all on.

Here is a video reinforcing the capability of Earthships to exist in extremely remote locations - Buffalo, Wyoming 2011.

Another Excerpt from my Earthship Academy Application

"I believe that the evolutionary process is one of the fundamental forces, if not the fundamental force that underlies all reality and I sincerely believe that the more we align our lives with this fundamental process, whether physically, spiritually or both, the more rewarding and long-lasting life will be. The Earthship lifestyle is extremely interesting because it allows us to align more closely with the evolutionary process: it affords us the spiritual freedom to work on what we truly believe in, while at the same time providing a comfortable space that not only allows us, but forces us to align with the rhythm of the natural world."

Excerpt from my Earthship Academy Application

"Sustainability to me is a no-brainer, I mean, if we are to survive as a species continuously into the future we must commit to becoming a sustainable society and do it as quickly as we can. And we all know this. And we all want this. But, it is only the most responsible and visionary among us who set aside their selfish desires, look at the bigger picture, and actually commit to minimizing our impact on the ever-changing climate through direct action. A sustainable society will only come about through the act of creating a space that forces us to live sustainably.

I believe there is no better way to promote and become sustainable than to start from the ground up and reformulate the way we live on this planet--though it may not be the most practical considering the infrastructure that we have already built. Earthships have re-imagined how we manage our basic biological needs and fit them neatly into a completely sustainable, self-sufficient package. The Earthship lifestyle provides a stable and comfortable foundation from where we can revamp society to fit a sustainable model. We understand in our minds that we have exhausted our current social model—though we can’t directly feel it yet—and to ensure our survival as a species on this planet we know we have to change and evolve out of old traditions into sustainable ones."
