It was New Year 2015, and I was on a new diet.

A “putting eastern food back into my life” diet!

I had just returned to the UK after 6 years living in China.

Over the last year I have started finding a much-needed rhythm to my life. I feel this has been partially due to my Shamanic studies as well as my continued learning about permaculture design methodology and how it can help design all areas of a person's life. I have started surveying and assessing the way my house works for us as a family.
