Title Description County Country
The Human 2.0 Project with Erik Lee

About me

My name is Erik Lee. I'm a father to two wonderful children, and husband to one wonderful woman. I went to college for a MS in Computer Science, and since then have been consumed by tracking down real solutions for the problems above, from a complex adaptive systems perspective.
That search has led me down a twisting path that includes bits and pieces from the real food movement, permaculture, resilience science, ecology, cognitive psychology, statistics, physics, chemistry, and a dozen other fields of knowledge.
I've cherry-picked from each of these to build up a strategy for what we can put in place right now to create a new kind of life for ourselves and our descendants, and stop wrecking the world we depend on for life. I hope you join me on this path - it's very exciting and loaded with opportunities, and I need your help!

The Kinesiology Federation

The Kinesiology Federation (KF) is a professional organisation representing Kinesiology practitioners, instructors and training schools from a spectrum of different branches of Kinesiology. Our aim, by working as a unifying organisation for these various branches, is to maintain the highest standards possible in training and therapeutic practice for the benefit of both the general public and our membership.

 

About Kinesiology

"Kinesiology was originally developed by an American chiropractor called George Goodheart. He found that by testing muscle response before and after he made chiropractic corrections he achieved better results for his patients. As time progressed he was able to make a connection between various muscles and acupuncture meridians. By testing these muscles the kinesiologist can get a picture of what is happening in your meridian system and how this may be affecting you. 

So, kinesiology can be seen as a blend of the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western techniques which enable a kinesiologist to treat you as an individual.  Each person’s session is unique to them. 

Kinesiology uses a range of gentle yet extremely powerful techniques. Kinesiology also allows the kinesiologist to draw on other healing techniques and modalities and integrate them into the session where appropriate and indicated by the muscle response.

Please use the links to view case studies, information on your sessions and information on the different kinesiology modalities."

The Lammas Project - A Pioneering Ecovillage in West Wales

Welcome to Lammas

The Lammas project has been created to pioneer an alternative model for living on the land. It empowers people to explore what it is to live a low-impact lifestyle. It demonstrates that alternatives are possible here and now.

The project centres around the ecovillage at Tir y Gafel, in North Pembrokeshire, which has been designed using a model that can be replicated across Wales. It combines the traditional smallholding model with the latest innovations in environmental design, green technology and permaculture. The ecovillage was granted planning permission in 2009 by the Welsh Government and is currently part-way through the construction phase.  At its heart it consists of 9 smallholdings positioned around a Community Hub building, and it is supported by a range of peripheral projects and networks.

The ecovillage runs guided tours every Saturday from April to October and also runs a range of courses, conferences and events throughout the year.

The project actively supports aspiring low-impact projects in Wales through providing guidance and resources as well as supporting independent academic studies.
