In Episode #45 of Living on Purpose, Lynn Thompson shared the conversation she had in the CHLY studio with Dirk Becker and Nicole Shaw in July, 2007.
This Episode is the second of 7 segments from the follow-up conversation between Dirk and Lynn, to further explore some of the ideas that emerged in their initial conversation.
Dirk Becker refers to himself as a socio economic environmental political activist and ardent feminist, who is fascinated by ayurvedic neuro bio psychological predisposition and with birth order.
Dirk has only recently (in his mid-40’s) been making the connection between a diagnosis of A.D.D. and dyslexia with his life experiences.
In the last few years Dirk has focused a lot of attention on how our method of food production affects people, our air, water, soil, insects, animals and the earth in general. Dirk bought 2.5 acres of gravel land in Lantzville (north edge of Nanaimo) and began working with the land, making soil from scratch! He is currently working on this bio-region’s 5th farmers’ market.
Alongside the environmental aspect of Dirk’s passion, what has most profoundly affected his way of being is his increasing awareness of himself and his fellow human beings through numerous courses in: personal growth, counseling, justice institute, health and nutrition, and training in N.L.P. (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).
