When we initially made here and on IC.org, we were both hopeful and dismayed about responses. In hindsight, we were, and still are, restless when it comes to realizing what we see as our potential. Writing this anew as there is less fear in us now, even though it is still a process.
We met seven years ago, while I was finishing Social Work, and Eira was painting. Neither of us were healthy, and after a while I quit my studies. We both understood we had to slow down more, and also take care of both physical and mental health. So ecovillages where in our mind, but to get there we started to take small steps. Like living more minimalistic, caringly and in-tune with ourselves, and working with our inner village, to plow the inner fields and see what that yields.
Having learned more about inner permaculture, we also found out more about ourselves and what would be good for us. So when we want community, first and foremost we are looking for a smaller circle. People that we can challenge and that challenge us, for a lifetime. In due time, that inner circle could then embed itself in a bigger one.
We are in our mid thirties, we try to better ourselves with regards to childhood adversities and trauma and to dig out more of our potential. We find Spiral Dynamics × MBTI a useful map for inner growth. On the one hand you have complexity, and on the other you have personality traits. And we enjoy applying that to our own lives and inner selves, as a measure for positive change and integration. And we want to find others with complementing perspectives, but on the same level of complexity, so we can solve bigger puzzles together.
Our health is compromised when it comes to physical activity, but our minds are still sound, and hearts widening. We are working on ourselves and our relationship, and hope that when the time is ripe we find others to share life with.
