yes we can edition

We live in a world where disparity and separation are often promoted, and where the loudest voices come from those holding power. The powerful are given the pedestals and funds with which to spread their messages, and we see, feel, and believe that they are the only ones with the authority or the ability to enact change. For better or worse, because of their financial and varying resources, they are at the helm of our planet and humanity. Yet, in this same world, humanity is coming together more and more with a common goal of oneness, peace, and a higher love. We recognize that we are all connected, and we are all one. We have the power to shift the spotlight onto local and global exemplary individuals and organizations that show…

the unseen heart of burning man

Waves of sound fill the crisp night air. A once-dark desert is alive with light of every color.

Many of the world’s best DJs are here, each spinning their sonic webs to captivate you and take you on an auditory journey. “This year, there were nearly 70,000 hearts at Burning Man, each with its own experiences and journeys. Amidst the thunderous noise of a sea of endless beats that echo across the playa, all becomes quiet. The only beat you can hear is the beat of your own heart. Then, for the first time, or for the first time in a long time, you can hear what…

step inside the earthship sustainable retreat & bio-architectural living systems

In 1969, Michael Reynolds graduated from Architecture School and moved to Taos, New Mexico. Inspired by television news stories about the concerning issue of global garbage accumulation and the lack of affordable housing, Reynolds put his education and imagination to work. He developed the “can brick” out of discarded steel and tin cans. The can brick is ten empty cans wired together to make a single building block. When used to form structures, the empty cans provide units of space that become the building blocks of light, but strong concrete walls. Though they were not as sophisticated as today’s models, the early structures Reynolds developed, dubbed Earthships, quickly gained press coverage as “homes made of garbage.” As Reynolds envisioned, Earthships are a type of house built with energy conservation in mind,…

How and why you did, is it for everyone, and why might you recommend the ‘escape?’ Yes we can escape the “9-5” and live our life by design. This life is for those who seek freedom, happiness, and life changing experiences with life long rewards. However, I don’t recommend it to people that want consistency, comfortability or those not willing to work hard, seeking fast, consistent, large amounts of money or fame. I grew up in a small town in Illinois where the “social norm” is growing up and going to college to ultimately work a 9-5. Although I got into every…
