    Elora Hardy - Creating Sustainable Bamboo Architecture In Bali

    Elora Hardy (IG: @eloradora) is the Founder and Creative Director of IBUKU. Raised on the beautiful island of Bali, Elora was inspired by the highly skilled local craftsmen as well as by the talented jewelry designs of her parents.
    She spent 14 years of her young adult life in the United States, where she received a degree in fine arts and went on to New York City to design prints for Donna Karan that would walk the world’s runways.
    In 2010, Elora left her successful career in the fashion world to carry on the incredible work of the design-build team that created the world-renowned Green School in Bali, founded by her father John Hardy.
    She reconnected with the culture and landscape that she loves and today continues to cultivate Balinese artisans alongside innovative designers and architects with the goal of making Bali a global center for sustainable design and bringing those designs to the rest of the world.
    In this episode, we discuss:

    Ryland Engelhart - Kiss The Ground, The Story Of Cafe Gratitude, Regenerative Agriculture

    Ryland Engelhart - Kiss The Ground, The Story Of Cafe Gratitude, Regenerative Agriculture

    Ryland Engelhart (IG: @lovebeingryland) is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Kiss the Ground. He is also a co-creator of the award-winning, transformational documentary film, “May I Be Frank.” Ryland is an entrepreneur and activist, and works to inspire more "gratitude" into our culture. He speaks on sacred commerce, tools for building community, and regeneration and is the host of Kiss the Ground's "We Can Do This Podcast."
    Kiss the Ground just released a new documentary on Netflix under the same title “Kiss the Ground.” I highly recommend watching it - it’s a real eye opener.
    It’s a full-length documentary narrated by Woody Harrelson that sheds light on an alternative approach to farming called “regenerative agriculture” that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    How soil is our common ground The story of Cafe Gratitude The business philosophy called Sacred Commerce Growing up a child of hippy parents Ryland’s personal mission statement The teachings of Waldorf education The body is an ecosystem Learning how to be comfortable without depending on substances Transforming limitations at The Landmark Forum The Be Love tattoo movement Experimenting with the plant medicine ayahuasca Regenerative agriculture could be a solution for climate change Animals are part of the life and death cycle of a farm How vegans can support regenerative agriculture Appreciating where your food comes from Show sponsors:

    Autumn Smith (IG: @autumnfladmosmith) is the co-founder of Paleovalley and Wild Pastures. She holds a Masters in Holistic Nutrition, she's a Certified Eating Psychology Coach, and a Certified FDN Practitioner.
    Autumn's passion for health began with her own struggles with IBS and anxiety: despite a career as a professional dancer and celebrity fitness trainer, her own health was in shambles. Desperate for a cure, Autumn and her husband Chas stumbled upon the paleo diet in 2011 and within a month of beginning it, her health was completely transformed.
    Autumn then made it her mission to share the information she had learned with as many people as possible.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    Transitioning Paleovalley from California to Colorado Supporting farmers using regenerative agriculture Sourcing 100% grass-fed and grass-finished meat Growing nutrient-dense produce Making regenerative organic certification (ROC) today’s standard Shifting our focus to the bigger picture How Autumn maintains balance as a mom, wife, and entrepreneur Daily life in The Kindergarten Pod The challenges of being a “yes person" What does it mean to be a highly sensitive person?
