‘Always it was the inner realization of what was possible
for a human that drove the outer experiment of living.

If I were to sum up these years, I would say this: Always
the state of the external world impressed upon my inner
world the realization that we were living in a time of
deep change and that we humans would need to update
to a new time and this could only be done from a conscious appreciation of our part in a different future.

I resolved I would do what I could to bring a consciousness of that ‘future – now’ to as many people as I could as I discovered my own path of evolution. Today my work is centered in the development of the world-wide

Conscious World Citizens movement’.

worlds, this house has served as a model for an increased number of straw bale houses in Denmark. 

The Sanctuary - for cats and humans
