Thirty-four people from Luzon to Mindanao gathered at the Vidar Garden 2.0 at Libongcogon, Iloilo to participate in the 5-day (Aug. 17 to 21) Biodynamic workshop facilitated by Nick Perlas. Many were farmers, some educators, doctors, hobby gardeners, religious, mothers, and businessmen.
The first hours in the morning were spent in observation of nature. Learning to observe, immersing oneself, listening. Nick had thankfully prepared a narrow gravel pathway edged with bamboo. Beside this pathway was deep muddy sludge. Sunflowers and zinnias and mature okras lined the path. The farm itself is edged by trees. There is a river running nearby. This is originally a swampy area with heavy clay soil. Soil was dug up to raise the farming area thereby forming ponds and trenches. A diversity of weeds and grasses abound making the area ahaven for wildlife. Those who did not take the matter of bringing boots seriously had a surprise. They had to trudge in the mud. Joffel, a farmer, enjoyed being barefoot and we secretly admired his feeling of freedom. Nick brought us to the compost piles, one a BD compost, another one, an organic compost. Our untrained noses were challenged to smell the difference.
Every day early mornings and late afternoons were spent outdoors before the heat of the day descends in full blast. We were blessed in that most days were sunny. As if by arrangement it rained before and after the workshop week. We prepared a plot (1×10 m) from scratch. Wild grasses were cut and their resistant roots dug up. A trench was dug to bring soil up for the plot. 34 pairs of hands helped in crumbling the clay soil, our hands happily squeezing the mud. We took turns making a vortex from a BD preparation with water. Then this solution was sprinkled on the new plot. The next day we transplanted lettuce seeds after which we spread a mulch of dried rice straw to prevent compaction from rain and from the soil drying up.
Following the BD sowing calendar, we started lettuce seeds by wetting tissue paper. Each one also planted Terry’s sweet papaya seeds in black bags, including an avocado. One afternoon was spent in preparing a BD compost from scratch which included using the BD preparations 502 to 507. These preparations stimulate the life energies of the pile, and are used to “manage the formative life forces that abound in the farm”.
Our workshop indoors challenged us to answer questions like Why am I here?Why did we start with a walk around the farm? What did I observe on the field? What are the hazards of chemical farming? What and where is the plant? A plant study was made by groups one afternoon. We observed patterns in the plant growth (of expansion and contraction) and other phenomena. We answered the question What is the spiritual function of food?, and came to realize that eating processed food, junk food, chemical laden foods or chemical-mimicking food is actually blocking the body from being a worthy receptacle for the divine.
A sharing from Gilbert of Dumaguete Mission Node with promptings from Teresa re China’s rice production problems….led us, in short, to the 3 gorges dam project in China is a failure. Many parts of China is drying up, even lakes. China is looking into other countries including the Philippines to lease huge tracts of land to grow rice to export and feed the Chinese. They will use our land and our people to grow rice for them. Many questions arise. Will they require the use of chemical farming? What about our own needs to feed our own people? Gilbert is encouraged to write about this in more detail to the MISSION group.
We come up with more questions. How do we revive the respect for agriculture? How do we bring back the dignity due to the farmer? We see that in working the land these past few days, we were sweating, huffing and puffing. We are suddenly made aware of the hard work our farmers give to be able to produce and feed us real food. We realize that, as the workshop ended, our baby steps towards biodynamic farming are just beginning.

FLOWER ESSENCES: Elixir of Alchemy Everyone knows how important flowers are — for their beauty, their fragrance, their oils in Aromatherapy and perfumes, even sometimes in food. But the most important property of flowers is seldom mentioned: their vibrational essence, and their literal connection to the human electrical system.
New science or that which resides beyond matter and subtler than magnets, electromagnets and other known forces, is now for our grabbing; formerly only very few know about them. Great challenges that confront us can no longer be effectively solved by old approaches, no matter how hard we try. We don’t have the luxury of time. Earth is nearing its “tipping point”. We have ran out of solutions to address global, societal, health concerns, and we are merely doing treadmill approaches in solving our problems. We need to do something that is truly effective, strategic or has wide and deep impact, is fast-acting, and multidimensional in effect, BUT so simple and uses or takes so little. In short, we need to do a quantum leap; we need to harness the power of the small and the invisible. Quantum is now used in generic terms, to refer to something extraordinarily small, invisible, undiscernable to many, but contains so much power to form or to destroy. In physics it is about that which lies beyond matter, inside the atoms, and which is attuned to that which is in the cosmos. In other sciences, it is about the formative fields and organizing forces.

More for posting… something about food… For our continued search on the why’s of eating…
I’d like to share something I’m a little embarrassed to admit.
When I used to hear someone complain they couldn’t lose weight,
I thought it was because they weren’t trying hard enough.
I assumed they just didn’t have enough willpower or self discipline.
I was dead wrong.
Now I know if you are still struggling…it’s NOT because of your metabolism, your willpower or even your genetics.
It is because the food industry has literally tricked our brains into
overeating through chemistry…
This sounds strange (and scary) but there is actually an Institute of Food
Technologists that study how to actually reprogram the brain through “hyperpalatable” foods…
Yes, with its ability to create super-stimuli, the industry has cracked the code of conditioned hyper-eating and learned exactly how to manipulate our eating behavior.
They then combine “texture science” to really put us over the edge.
Did you ever notice how easy it is to chew food these days?
It is because they literally pre-process foods and then add fat so the food literally melts in our mouths. What used to take over 25 bites just 30 years ago, now only takes 10 bites for the average American.
And you wonder why we are all getting so much fatter! In my experience, even the people I meet who are at a good weight… still think about food virtually all of the time.
So even those of us who “know better” still have been hard wired to crave these foods high in sugar, fat, and salt. Research shows the brain responds just like having a drug addiction…
How to fight back, and get the body you deserve…
In researching this, I discovered that just being aware of the issue is usually not enough.
This conditioning is really strong, and lies deep in our unconscious minds.
So it is not surprising that what appears to be getting the best results in “undoing” this programming and helping people eat the natural, healthy foods we have evolved to eat is medical hypnosis.
This is because hypnosis is the science of changing deep unconscious behaviors… and in the field of weight loss, the results are undisputable. In a meta analysis of hypnosis versus non hypnosis groups – groups who used hypnosis lose over twice the amount of weight as compared to non hypnosis groups – and this is long term.
The program I recommend
There is a home use program by Dr. Roberta Temes (the author of the hypnosis textbook used in medical schools) that is getting people undeniable results in the fight against bad foods.
Over 53,000 people have now used this program, and the success rate is a little over 9 out of 10.
That is why well known doctors like Dr. Joe Mercola, Dr. Mark Hyman, and Dr. Joel Furhman all recommend this specific program to their patients and readers who need to control their cravings.
It works by undoing the habits causing you to be overweight, and creating new habits that lead to creating a healthy body.
And if you read the hundreds of reviews…
You will see that eating right becomes almost effortless, so you can get on with your life and stop thinking about food! There are definitely more important things to be focused on…
So I think giving this a try is simply a no brainer.
By the way, I have talked to the publisher and aside from having an A+ rating with the BBB (not one complaint in over 6 years) – they agreed to allow you to test drive the program for just $5.95 so you could find out for yourself just how effective it will be when you click the link below.
