Mandiba

“Tread softly, Breathe peacefully, Laugh hysterically.”

Sad as the news of Nelson Mandela’s death has been, perhaps the greater and deeper sadness is to have to face the reality that no current political leader walks and acts with anything close to the level of his intention, courage, integrity and humanity.

We are so lucky to have had the gift of his life and his spirit on the Earth at this time. He has been one of the greatest healers of all the ages.

May Mandiba be in the Light and may we carry forward his torch of love,peace and reconciliation.

The world will not evolve under the continued domination by personalities that seek to rule rather than serve. May his death be an awakening to this realisation and call for his spirit to come forth and shine through us all. May his death be a wake-up call to the politicians of today.

And may the longtime sun shine upon him …

Hearing the Elephant’s Call

The Amazing & Beautiful Story of what can be lived when humanity connects through the heart to the natural world.

Last year millions of people were moved by the heartbreaking and mystical story around the death of Lawrence Anthony, the Elephant Whisperer.

His family spoke of a solemn procession of Elephants that defies human explanation.

Two herds of South African Elephants, made a 12 hour journey through the Zululand Bush to mourn the passing and be at the home of the man who saved their lives. For two days the herds held vigil at Anthony’s rural compound on the vast Thula Thula game reserve in the South African KwaZulu – to say good-bye to the man they loved. FOR FULL STORY CLICK HERE

This story moved so many people to tears; being touched by the love and connection still possible between mankind and the natural world, tears of longing and tears of deep grieving for the loss of that purity from most of our lives.

We asked ourselves what can we do to help to heal this split in humanity and move us back to the magic and love possible when we remember that we belong to nature,  and that our highest path is to be at one with, and guardian of, this world?

Our answer is to begin the development of Alchemy; Earth Healing Events. Events designed to lift the illusion and wounds of separation, restore soul loss and get us operating consciously as free, empowered, source beings again.  The design of Alchemy is now underway and will involve the contribution of amazing artists and leaders in consciousness.

Solar-Powered Hospital in Haiti

It’s among the most basic, most critical, and most overlooked resources needed to run a hospital: electricity. But in Haiti’s Central Plateau, the flow of energy is intermittent at best. Consider that in Mirebalais, located 30 miles north of Port-au-Prince, the power goes out for an average of three hours each day. This poses an enormous challenge to running any hospital; surgeries are jeopardized, neonatal ventilators stall, the cold chain is interrupted, and countless everyday tasks get derailed. As Partners In Health co-founder Paul Farmer noted during a recent lecture at the Harvard School of Public Health, “It’s not great if you’re a surgeon and you have to think about getting the generator going.”
To make sure the patients and staff at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais (University Hospital) aren’t left in the dark, PIH and its partners looked toward the sun. Stretched across the roof of the new 200,000-square-foot hospital is a vast and meticulously arranged array of 1,800 solar panels.
On a bright day, these panels are expected to produce more energy than the hospital will consume. Before the facility even opened its doors—the official opening is slated for March—the system churned out 139 megawatt hours of electricity, enough to charge 22 million smartphones and offset 72 tons of coal. Perhaps most important is that the excess electricity will be fed back into Haiti’s national grid, giving a much-needed boost to the country’s woefully inadequate energy infrastructure.




Sustainable Savings

In a country ravaged by deforestation, the ecological benefits of this alternative energy source cannot be overstated: Annually, the system is expected to save 210 metric tons of carbon emissions. And while a sea of solar panels perched atop a hospital in the mountains of Haiti is certainly eye-catching, it’s just one part of a comprehensive environmental strategy. Other green-friendly features at the hospital include natural ventilation that minimizes the need for air conditioning and motion-sensor activated lights that cut energy consumption by 60 percent when compared with traditional lighting.
This push toward sustainability and energy self-sufficiency translates into significant financial savings. In Haiti, electricity is expensive: The price per kilowatt hour is 35 cents, compared with 5.5 cents in New England. Using solar is expected to slash $379,000 from the hospital’s projected annual operating costs.
When fully operational, University Hospital is expected to be the largest solar-powered hospital in the world that produces more than 100 percent of its required energy during peak daylight hours, an impressive feat for the first-ever teaching hospital in central Haiti. The many lessons learned from the project will prove invaluable as PIH, its partners, and others undertake similarly ambitious and sustainable projects.
