I would like to thank everybody who contributed in any way in making it possible for me to attend Enzo's Nastati's seminar in Colorado. I feel so very truly grateful to have received this opportunity.
It was such an enriching experience that I know will influence me for the rest of my life. What an amazing man with such a beautiful, humble message. I am so excited to try all the of the new preps that he brought to us, such as the ones for drought and frost. I am eager to start studying and fully understanding all of his different concepts and methods. I can't wait to have a bigger property to really put some of his practices to use, like the farm organism.The way that he really understands the energy of the cosmos at work on the plants is so amazing to me. I earn to experience my garden (and future farm) with that much intuition and passion. I am new to Biodynamics, and though I felt a little like an Algebra student thrown into an Advanced Calculus class, this seminar was so worth it. I look forward to watching the DVD over and over again; there were so many nuggets of knowledge. I know this is work that I will be studying and sharing for a very long time. I have also invested in an Italian language course so that someday I may go and study with him in Italy, as I feel that I have so much more to learn from him.
Thank you again so very much for making it possible for me to attend this seminar.
"Returning to our farm, contemplating and following Enzo's advice, I am becoming evermore grateful for the seminar. He gave clear, simple, practical and spiritual advice that has changed the way we farm and live. I know now that the 'Farmer is a preparation and our quality is created drop by drop.' I am so thankful that Sylvia can translate!"
Returning to our farm, contemplating and following Enzo's advice, I am becoming ever more grateful for the seminar. He gave clear, simple, practical and spiritual advice that has changed the way I farm and live. The Enzo Nastati seminar was intensive and fast paced. I have many new thoughts to integrate and contemplate. The seminar left me feeling very grateful to have been able to learn from someone like Enzo, his work integrates spiritual perspective and practicality unlike anything I have previously witnessed. I have become greatly inspired to continue studying the sacred in agriculture and to allow myself to be changed in heart and mind. I am so grateful for Sylvia, who has studied with Enzo, to have been our interpreter. She was able to put into English some very special thoughts.
Enzo taught that for every problem there is a solution that is discovered with a change of heart and mind. He explained how spiritual forces work to create a material world, the importance of discovering the spiritual names of things, seeing the planets and the stars in plants and animals, looking at form. Enzo stated over and over that “the quality of 1000 drops is made drop by drop.” I take this to mean that with spiritual understanding we have immense capability to create quality in all that we do. Enzo showed us how we could improve the effectiveness of preparations and the quality of compost by incorporating spiritual understanding. I learned about the interactive forces on the farm and in a human; forces of life and death, incarnating and excarnating, astral, etheric. Understanding these forces, he told us how to improve the quality of dynamization, compost, preparation making, water vitality, seed germination and much more. We learned how to make a “medicine” cabinet of treatments for weeds, funguses and other preparations. Enzo emphasized low tech and inexpensive in his techniques for enlivening Life. I learned that basic movements like clockwise and counterclockwise have meaning and an affect. I can apply this to the way I prune our fruit trees or stir a preparation. Aside from all the technical advice, Enzo taught me a new way to think, a way that I can open my heart to life.
It has definitely changed the way I farm. My old ways are gone, yet my new ways not developed. I actually feel an emptiness were once I had answers. Enzo said, “Clean, clean, clean.” Pointing out that for us to see clearly and to truly know anything we need to attend to the inner work of ourselves. So, now I am curious. How will these changes in myself enable me to unite my farm with Life? What are our practical next steps? What I walk away with most after this seminar, is enthusiasm to study the works of Rudolf Steiner, Enzo Nastati and other great biodynamic thinkers, feelers, and doers. I want to learn from them! It is the practice of this work with Life, which makes me want to farm. Enzo said that “The farmer is a preparation.” How important it is for me to remember that.
It has been a special event for me to leave behind the daily rigors of my life, to a graciously hosted seminar, in Paonia, that unraveled my mind with new thoughts, and to return home with an inspired heart, to practice the love of my work in my farm, myself and in all of life.
Thank You, contributors and all who make the scholarship fund possible, from the bottom of my heart,
Words are difficult to describe the impact of attending the Enzo Nastati conference of Homeodynamics in beautiful Paonia, Colorado last week. Five packed days of immersion, incredible food and commraderie transpired in the green valleys of orchards between the snow covered peaks. Our work as Biodynamic farmers has been totally renewed by Enzo and then translated to us through Sylvia and Jessi. Enzo and his team are pioneering a leading edge of low tech, modern techniques that also rely on the standards created by Rudolph Steiner almost a hundred years ago. Combining spirituality from ancient theology, together with the wisdom of eastern teachings, and the ideas of new age philosophy, combined to make a very powerful platform from which to grow ourselves and our crops. As we return to our farm to reflect, study and put to use the Homeodynamic skills we are learning we are inspired to share and encourage all farmers to incorporate these new techniques of dynamyzation. Thank you to everyone involved in providing our venue! Thank you to The Biodynamic Scholarship Fund without which we would not have been able to attend this life changing event!
