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).
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
