Business, Education, Holistic Life Context, Life Design, Life Design for Permaculture, One-on-One CoachingBefore we did this work with Javan, it seemed too daunting to include everything in our life that we wanted to move forward. We were both aware of things that needed improvement, but they were stuck up in our brains. Having it down on paper makes the conversation about us and the farm possible.Javan provided a framework for us to have an organized conversation with each other on a disorganized situation and it’s been fantastic. We wish it was something we had done years ago, but we just didn’t have the tools at the time. This holistic framework gives you a sense of the entire picture of your life, from work to finances to personal relationships and everything in between in our case, and it allowed us to juggle all this in a calm and collected, but thorough and methodical way that made it easy to approach and discuss one issue at a time until we were both on the same page.

Javan’s innate ability to help others cut through the mystery and confusion of their life’s purpose is incredible. His process helps others generate a business plan that integrates their individual passions and skills, then directs that focused energy towards problems in the world that they were literally born to solve. For me, Javan has been a much needed voice of reason in my life. His insights around marketing, in particular, have given me the clarity I needed to create a marketing strategy that has me spending less time herding people, and more time herding cows.

Javan, thank you very much for your input and sharing your journey and experience with us. This has been much more than a design course for me. It has opened my eyes and, for that, I am very grateful to everybody involved in putting this course together.

Thanks Javan 🙂 you for your insights. I must say I have much self doubt and get very nervous at times, but this course and your feedback have helped me grow confident in my abilities. I have also signed up for a double helix workshop after what you said in the regional disaster and climate assessment. Thank you so much for all your time and effort!

I just wanted to say “thank you” once again…when the course finished today, I went out and walked, walked, almost ran full of energy and a sense of happiness I have experienced many times already since I discovered Permaculture and Permaculture people.

Javan is a gifted agent for positive change on the planet. As an instructor, he is eloquent, well-rounded, knowledgeable and bright. He is able to adapt to the needs and interests of the participants, and is energetic enough to keep offering ideas and support through break times. As one participant described, Javan channels information to us as from a fire hose.
In the months leading up to the course, circumstances shifted multiple times. Javan remained professional and was able to confer and advise me (as a neophyte organizer) at each turning point. He was generous with time and knowledge on course promotion and building community. In fact, he suggested I run a monthly gathering to begin the process of networking and bringing like minds together. It was a successful endeavour indeed.
When the course finally ran, we had a great turn out of enthusiastic folks whose expectations were met, and surpassed. Javan was able to competently and sensibly channel solid and inspiring information. He subtly adapted it to stakeholders like a local city manager and teachers participating in the course, as well as to drop-in visitors such as our supportive local mayor and a doubtful city councillor.
I will always appreciate his efforts towards the inception of our local urban agriculture community. I look forward to opportunities to cross paths with Javan in the future. My best wishes to him as he continues to follow and share his bliss while encouraging others to do the same.

So, you’ve awaken to the fact that you want to change the world and your not sure what you can do. You’ve just finished a PDC and are ready to hit the ground running. But wait, how do I do that, well, Javan has developed a system that helps you help yourself. When you head out to make change you might want to take inventory of YOU. This is what you would do if you were going to advise someone about there property. Now then lets evaluate Zone 0, YOU.
Javan’s course does this and so much more. The basic questions are: What are you talented at? What brings you joy? What recharges you? This sounds easy to do? It was one of the hardest but most fulfilling exercises I have ever done. This work will help you to have laser focus on fulfilling your life’s passion, purpose and finding your bliss.
Thanks for all you do
