Nomadic Life

The most powerful force on earth is the human soul on fire. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new sun. A new sun is always welcomed in our lives. We embrace change, we trust. We let serendipities happen. We leave heart space for the unpredictable. We cultivate simplicity. We stay open hearted to the upcoming mysteries that are unfolding right in front of our eyes.

 

Where do we come from? It is a constant question that people ask to the bus, trying to understand the subtleness of its origin, as a kid that breaks a watch apart to find out what time is. Our answer is never on the map. Infinity, Pacha Mama, Music, the Plants, the fire, are some of our answers. This video…is one more.

The journey begins. A mobile village comprised of 20 permaculture engineers, a media team and holistic practitioners travel by bus for 4-months from San Diego, California to Panama to build an on the ground network of impact centers. The individuals on the bus were hand selected for their skills in natural building, composting, human centered design, permaculture design, recycled blacksmithing, event production, community building, holistic healing and media to leave a positive trace. The Earth Odyssey exists as a mobile intentional community with a mission of creating a new world through educational workshops and sustainability installations. Photos and more: Blog

Project Nuevo Mundo is a platform that connects People and Impact Centers, encouraging resource sharing on the web and on the ground to catalyze planetary regeneration and individual transformation. We are building an online network to connect individuals seeking meaningful experiences to Impact Centers looking for supportive people.

GLOCAL is all about thinking GLOBAL and acting LOCAL. The New World needs individuals who act beyond their own personal desires to live in “comfort”. Planetary regeneration relies on thriving in harmony with the local resources and acting consciously to see the consequences of our initiatives on a larger scale, positively affecting people around the world.

The Earth Odyssey expanded this concept by following the permaculture principle to use small and slow solutions – the bigger they are the harder they fall – slow and steady wins the race. The Econauts brought their expertise to El Pedregal, a permaculture demonstration center in Oaxaca, Mexico, to build systems that does not require outside infrastructure to sustain and regenerate itself. We planted comfrey plants to turn our urine into a fertilizer, used bio construction techniques using materials collected at the site, and nurtured the eroded soil to create a symbiotic space with mycorrhiza spores to become fertilizer for the gardens. We hope that our efforts inspire more people to become more integral with the environment that surrounds them.

 

The Earth Odyssey bus tour finally stayed stationary for a good period of time allowing more permanent projects to happen. The fractalization happened in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Many groups of econauts got involved in all kinds of projects around the like, being one of those the Nutrition Center Konojel. Check out the amazing solar powered systems they built to help this center become sustainable, transforming sun into food.

 

Returning to the Roots is 1 of 3 sustainability projects with indigenous communities that the 2013 Earth Odyssey Caravan completed all around Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. After 2 months on the road through Mexico and Guatemala, Project Nuevo Mundo`s Earth Odyssey in collaboration with JUSTA and 22 permaculture specialists landed for 2 months in Guatemala to break off into 3 teams and complete 3 projects.

 

A small demonstration learning center built with bottle bricks, bamboo, cob and other recycled materials was constructed in the small indigenous Mayan community of Santiago in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. The team of natural builders invited the whole community out, parents and children alike to participate and learn to build with earth!
