/"To prepare for the future, we can love the present"
/Larry Santoyo
The future is abundant, asserts permaculture designer Larry Santoyo.

His vision of living in the present suggests an antidote to fear about 
uncertain times and the future.  Humans can rediscover that they are a 
part of the ecosystem, and apply permaculture design principles to the 
many problems we face.  Larry teaches sustainable permaculture design as 
a discovery of the world around us.

Santoyo credits his early training as a police officer for giving him 
some of his most profound human insights.  Trained to respond to 
stressful situations with calm, clear thinking, and keen observation 
skills while staying centered in the present, he was able to help those 
in distress while keeping them and himself out danger.

In our eco-anxiety ridden times many are also in distress with stressors 
that threaten to endanger and paralyze us.  But Santoyo suggests that we 
needn't let these fears shape us, but instead by choosing what we love 
about the present, and developing useful skills to benefit ourselves and 
others, we have a solid foundation upon which to build the future.

Larry Santoyo is the Director of EarthFlow Design Works
