13. Seeking Truth - Benji Paula

Benji Paola, also known as Sister Benji or "Reggae Queen" has inspired us and many people to live joyfully with nature in a sustainable way.
In the 90´s she and her partner returned from Holland to the countryside of Portugal without financial resources. With nothing more than love and confidence they managed to get some land and a ruin where they built up a healthy base to raise four children. Together they got known as the ONE LOVE Family, one of Portugals first reggae bands. Nowadays she takes care of the land by herself and frequently receives people who come to learn and experience her way of life – always seeking truth and love for the divine creation.

5. A Common Wealth - Monte Mimo

Dreamers of the oasis, lovers of life, experimenters of autonomy. Their vision is to create the conditions for family sustainability and thereby contribute to the lives of all beings.
They have been living since 10 years in a dry region of south Portugal in the middle of the Agro-Industry where they focus their energy on soil and landscape regeneration. Inspired by the principles and practices of Permaculture, they adapt knowledge to their capacities, style and specificities of the land. Here, mules are still used in the fieldwork.

The house is made of recycled and ecological materials built with hands, feet and soul.
In this episode we are meeting Sergio and Rita at Monte Mimo. A family with children and many happy animals. 
Welcome to an Oasis in the Desert!

2. Nature Always Comes Back - Anne Dinneen

2. Nature Always Comes Back - Anne Dinneen

Anne Dinneen was born in Ireland and came to Portugal in 1998 as a single mother of two children, transporting a Tipi which was their home. Now she lives in a stone house on top of a hill called Picota from where you have a breathtaking view over South Portugal.
But what you see from up there is shocking. The once green hills have turned into a monoculture industry of Eucalyptus, which is sucking a lot of water from the ground.
This business was the reason for various forest fires which have burned down big areas of Monchique. Anne had to run away twice from the flames loosing her house and trees.

In this episode she talks about her life as a yogateacher who again and again rises up from the ashes to defend bio diversity and healing in this corner of the planet.

1. Soul of a Community - Yemadas

1. Soul of a Community - Yemadas

Ana Rute and Tiago Rouxinol spent many years traveling and exploring the world.
Their passion for music and dance brought them to different tribes and cultures around the globe.
For ten years the famous ecovillage Auroville in India was their base of living. There they formed the band Yemadas, which
for them means "a group of nomadic people with a positive spirit and a lot of joy to share."
When their son was born, they felt the call to return to their roots in Portugal.
Together with friends they found their "promised land" in a remote valley and are now guardians of one of the last remaining native forests in this area.
We had the honor to be their guests for two weeks in which this podcast was recorded :)

0. Planting a Dream - Isabel Seda & Diogo Quaresma

A seed is in our hands.
It wants to grow, to expand, to reach out. The land is calling.

As many others in those times of transformation, Isabel and Diogo also feel that something has to change.
On their journey from grey to green they meet people who have already done that step out of the old system.In order to share the unique life stories of those guardians of the land, the seed of Yuramin was planted.

May this podcast inspire the global community to shift towards a more sustainable way of living in collaboration with nature.
