Start a Foodteam in my town. While living in Antwerp I used to buy studentbags with biological veggies and fruit from the Antwerp Foodteam. A Foodteam consists of families living in the same area who buy directly from local producers and farmers. That way, local trade, organic products and social cohesion are promoted.

Now I moved in again with my parents, I realized that there is no local Foodteam in our town. In the past few days I started investigating what I need to do to start it up and how I can mobilize people (*) to join the team.
Step 2: ask municipality if it is interested to collaborate or support the team (Mail to Essen)
Step 3: spread the idea amongst local associations. My mum is already willing to introduce it to the women association (KVLV) where she is active and wants to put me into touch with other associations.
Step 4: inform residents about the concept of a Foodteam and invite them for an info evening. Publish this in the municipal magazine and website, spread it through facebook, distribute flyers, ask associations to do the same.
Step 5: if enough families sign up, start the Foodteam and work out the practical organization.
Updated my blog about South Africa. I set it up to share my experience (**) of living in Cape Town and travelling in Southern Africa with my friends at home. I think this can open the door to the world, create a better understanding amongst cultures and encourage people to do the same.
Read books about alternative healing therapies like Body Talk and intuitive healing to get ready for action (**). Currently I am reading Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss. A grasp of her ideas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbU_UdHjqLE
On the list:
– John Veltheim (http://www.bodytalksystem.com/; The Body Talk System; Body Talk Access);
– Bruce Lipton (http://www.brucelipton.com/; The Biology of Belief; Spontaneous Evolution);
– Rupert Sheldrake (http://www.sheldrake.org/homepage.html).
I was raised with western medicine and until very recently I had no experience with alternative therapies. The first book already gave me a new perspective on spirituality. I have never felt very attracted to delve into religion and philosophy, but now I might have to adjust that belief and explore this new world (***) of knowledge.
Next week Monday I have to present my thesis, the final assignment of my Master in Law. Today I have been looking up tips on PowerPoint presentations and speaking for an audience. Of course I have given presentations before, but I want to innovate in my attitudes (***). I want to find out how to fascinate an audience and transfer a message. And I challenge myself to apply it next week.
The past shows me that I have succeeded in turning dreams into reality (***). I believe that each of my dreams has the potential to become real, but I know it requires continuous effort and dedication.
