Wind Energy Institute Shumei is a spiritual organization dedicated to elevating the quality of life Shumei — Natural Agriculture Natural Agriculture stems from the teachings of Mokichi Okada, a Japanese philosopher and farming pioneer who lived in the early years of the 20th century. Responding to the sense of alienation in the modern world, Okada encouraged a reconnection with nature, and a focus on the aspects of life that foster goodwill between people: compassion, respect and love. A cornerstone of his philosophy was the need for humanity to restore its relationship with nature. By recognizing our interdependence with other living beings, he believed, we would rediscover cooperation and gratitude, the foundations of a peaceful society. That act of reconnecting with nature through food is what Okada called Natural Agriculture.

World Stewardship Institute Zero Waste Alliance Resilience Alliance - Panarchy No system can be understood or managed by focusing on it at a single scale. All systems (and SESs especially) exist and function at multiple scales of space, time and social organization, and the interactions across scales are fundamentally important in determining the dynamics of the system at any particular focal scale. This interacting set of hierarchically structured scales has been termed a "panarchy" (Gunderson and Holling 2003). Panarchy is a framework of nature's rules, hinted at by the name of the Greek god of nature- Pan - whose persona also evokes an image of unpredictable change. The panarchy framework connects adaptive cycles in a nested hierarchy. In addition to this creative role, Pan has a destabilizing role that is captured in the word panic, directly derived from one facet of his paradoxical personality.
