Many people do not realize that permaculture is much more than about growing fruit and vegetables. It is a whole view incorporating the environment, energy, resources, housing, technology, education, healthcare, the arts, spirituality, psychology, philosophy and agriculture, indeed, the Soul of the World. It provides a realistic alternative for our future sustainability, a gentler way that treads lightly on our Mother Earth. Peter Charles Downey’s Anima Mundi is not a “How To” video, it is a “Where To” documentary showcasing alternatives like Earthships, Permaculture, Permablitz, retrofitting the suburbs, lifeboats, localized food production and currencies, planned energy decent and Gaian philosophy. It features many great interviews, including David Holmgren (co-founder of Permaculture), John Seed OAM (Deep Ecology), Dr Mark O’Meadhra (Integrative Medicine) Dr Christine James (Psychology) Michael Reynolds (Earthships), Stephan Harding, Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, and many more.
