Being Earthbound

Dan and Johanna McTiernan


Conversations facilitating growth, connection and healing at the fertile edge between transpersonal psychology, embodied meditation and permaculture. We think it was the six months we spent with subsistence homesteaders in the mountains of Nepal eighteen years ago that started our process of descent. Descent feels like a good word to describe the route back to the planet, to our natural humanity. Paring back, deepening, unlearning and re-skilling, reconnecting. Slowly Earthbinding. Johanna is a qualified Nature Connection Facilitator, Dan is an internationally certified Transpersonal Psychology Coach, and we are both trained and certified embodied meditation teachers (Subtle Energy Meditation). We’ve been permaculture designers, homesteaders and teachers since 2008 and have also founded an award-winning permaculture bakery in the UK, farmed a regenerative olive and almond project in Catalunya Spain, and now live on a small rural homestead in Johanna’s native Finland where we raise food and our two boys. We started Earthbound to facilitate and support deep transformation in people and to create a community that feels like a hearth, a place to Be, to rest as our authentic Selves.
