RE: [sacredlandscapelist] re: Sacredlandscaping as a Profession
I lived in Aspen as a "local" - and I find your comments right
on....interestingly, I worked for a firm that designed those ski towns as a
landscape architect. Fortunately, I have left that long behind and started
my own firm to create therapeutic healing gardens and sacred spaces a number
of years ago after I realized I could no longer play a role in developing
such impacts on the environment without acknowledgement of the energetics
and sacredness of the place. There are not many forms out there like mine
yet but I have been speaking as often as possible about this work and its
importance. I am so glad to hear that I am not a lonely song out in the
wilderness. Thanks for your thoughts.

<<<your message was definitely food for thought.
i have never thought much about those ski towns
and what kind of real life goes on there.
There IS real life right here in Colorado, haha. The ski towns back the
money, but there are many local folks that live in these ski towns year
round, and they are the ones having to look at these billion dollar homes
filling up the landscape that remain empty most of the year. Unfortunately
Colorado seems in the dark ages when it comes to understanding sacred
landscaping and working with natural power and energy. I think you've
hit on a good market for yourself here. Even if you were to simply travel
around giving lectures about basic sacred landscaping and bringing this
knowledge to the public and/or the developers. Its a shift in awarenesss
perception that is needed.
Always with Love,
