In permaculture, zoning is a tool to place elements in relation to their energy use & requirements. Zones 0-5 lead out from the house or main dwelling to the self-willed forests & oceans. Zone 00 has been used as a label for the inner world, our hearts and minds and a Zone 00 design is an attempt to re-design the direction of one's life path.
This output describes the journey in re-designing my life, my Zone 00. In December 2010 I was released from prison into the world with a new life design in my heart. Now after a year of more opportunities than I could have imagined possible, 12 months of learning, active self-reflection and feedback from people & projects around me, I was called inwards to re-design again.
In these pages you can find how I've applied the principles of permaculture & ecology to zone 00, the design tools I have benefited from and my attempts at finding beneficial connections through integration analysis. An implementation plan has also been created to put all this learning into action. This output is process rich to maximise its usefulness to others. There are many links to more in-depth, content focused material, these are optional for the reader.
“The way to maintain one's connection to the wild is to ask yourself what it is that you want. This is the sorting of the seed from the dirt. One of the most important discriminations we can make in this matter is the difference between things that beckon to us and things that call from our souls." - Clarissa Pinkola Estés
