About Furlong

Furlong = 220 yards, 660 feet, 40 rods, or 10 chains. I am studying Participatory Action Research through ‘Mindfulness into Action ‘ working on my own self-reflection and identifying my behavioral patterns. My field of interest is Ethno-botany. At the moment, I am developing a work file for the healing centers scope of work in Ecuador. Preparing for travel down to Ecuador for hands on experience with local Indigenous shamans and healers. Currently, I am working on integrating participatory action research of ‘Mindfulness into Action’ and performance arts exercising STEM (SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATHMATICS) tool. I am interested in bringing joy to the world through movement (performance arts; dance and yoga) and education (‘mindfulness into action’ and STEM). Also, I am interested in bringing awareness of the cultural impact of human trafficking and abandonment of children. Through alternative medicine, I would like to aid victims of human trafficking with medicinal and spiritual healing. Moreover, I would like to embrace children who have been abandoned with love and compassion, and through epigenetics encouraging them to see that their future is limitless.
