The world is shifting and expanding its anchors in health and wellness, travel and communications, technology and business, space exploration, and consciousness. It is the time to pivot from the traditional focus on aesthetics and low- or no-touch landscapes to thriving, interactive relationships. This shift begins with you on your property.
Convergent Ecosystems' design perspective is about Cultivating a Convergent Synergy. Starting with the elements and energies of your home and garden, the greater landscape, and universal rhythms, I support clients to achieve their goals of site improvement, style, revitalization, wellness, as well as practical uses, using a multi-dimensional lens. Cultivating synergy on your property creates unfolding layers of beauty, greater holistic and conscious-living, while building adaptive resilience to global climate change.

Who I Serve:
Weaving your design with the principles of permaculture works with natural patterns and processes (not against), reduces your ecological footprint, keeps things practical, optimizes yields of food and other harvests, builds cleaner, stronger systems between humans, communities, and nature.
The energetic building blocks of our physical world consist of earth (soil/rock/stone), water (rain/streams/ponds), air (wind/sky/viewshed), and fire (sunlight/heat/physical fire). Balancing these elements and their correspondences creates a healthy, creative, and abundant living and working environment.
An alternative way to view the generative energies of space and design through Chinese 5-Elements and Feng Shui. A traditional lens to view the interactive relationships of an ecosystem - you, your home, your property, and the larger landscape and how to optimize for greater harmony and vitality.
The ecosystem as organism. The ecosystem as reflection of universal rhythms and vibrations. Weaving a landscape, garden, farm environment, the beings of nature, your tools and your choices together for greater congruence with cosmic cycles. Expanding your perspective of reality.

There are metaphysical energies aka "nature spirits" behind every living being. From Gaia theory, the devas of Findhorn, and what are known as "elementals" every traditional culture in the world. Consider approaching your landscape with all beings on the land in mind.
