“Windhorse Farm in Nova Scotia.”

This summer, my mom and my longtime buddy Mike Smith took me for a tour (led by Will Martin) of Windhorse Farm—a farm and sustainably-logged forest and retreat/events center that fast became my favorite place ever—because it combines my interests in a sort of endless ecosystem: Shambhala Buddhism and the path of warriorship, environmental responsibility, and sustainable business—all three joined whereas, typically, one’s spiritual path is considered separate or even opposed to making money, and business considers environmentalism an obstacle…

Little tour of Windhorse Farms narrated by Waylon Lewis of! It is very educational on Ecoforestry and we kept this video fun with lots of sense of humor. Enjoy…

Bonus: my photos:

I can’t figure how to embed my slideshow, but go here and click slideshow.
