I heared the word “ecology” for the first time when I was in France, at ECOlonie, an ecological centre in Hennezel, Vosges…..
Ecology (the thesis of ecological thinking and acting) at ECOlonie goes beyond healthy and organic gardening and building. Ecology is a philosophy that includes all aspects of life – both physical and spiritual. ‘Eco’ is derived from the Greek word oikos , meaning to feel at home. To feel at home somewhere simply means ‘to feel at ease, to be able to be yourself’. (From Ecolonie’s website)
An ecological way of thinking and living is a contribution to Nature, and to our Natural Self, to stay healthy, or to become healthy again.
Ecological food is a natural remedy in it’s purests way.
When I was at ECOlonie, in 2009, to work there as a volunteer, I met a young Australian woman, Faith, the one who created the following video about ECOlonie:
And another video, about also another way of living:
