NOTE: The 5-day challenge is currently on hold whilst I complete my permaculture design course. However, I do intend on running the 5-day challenge again in the not too distant future!
Introducing the Shared Earth Living 5-day challenge!
It´s easy to talk about wanting to live in a more beautiful world but it´s another thing to actually participate in its creation.
Big dreams are important to have but its important that we don´t save our participation in their creation for some future time when we have enough money or enough time.
Or in my case, I don´t just want to wait until I have a plot of land and a yurt to make my dream of living in a more beautiful world a reality! I´m far too impatient for that!
Big dreams are realised through the small day to day steps that we take
That is why I don´t just want to talk the talk but walk the walk.
So I propose a 5-day challenge, whereby we commit to the practice of a life-affirming new habit that supports us in helping to create a more beautiful world.
It will be something simple to try for 5 days and come at zero cost. It could be something related to our internal world, like practising compassion or kindness or to the outer world, like having a zero-plastic week or only eating seasonally.
The idea is that we commit to the challenge for 5 days and document our experiences in short journal entries. Then they can then be shared with the rest of the community as support and inspiration for everyone else 🙂
And of course, there is room for our humanity- perfection is not required!
So let´s not wait for the politicians to get their act together- real change is going to come from come us, the global community deciding that we want to dream a different dream.
The world is changed heart by heart, mind by mind, often in quiet an solitude. This is where the real change happens. Politicians just ratify this changeUnknown
I will be running the 5-day challenge every few months. So if you would like to partake in the next one, sign up for the newsletter and I will let you know when it starts 🙂
