Read full description of the books Despertar: Defender a la Naturaleza Es Toda Una Aventura:El siglo 21 se esta terminando. En un mundo desertificado post-epidemico, donde todo cambio pero no como se necesitaba, la joven Ambar lucha por encontrar sentido, verdadero amor en su vida y como reforestar el planeta. Su diferencia profunda es innegable e inmanejable, oscila entre querer desaparecer y forzarse a ser normal. Ama a la poca naturaleza que queda, mientras en su mundo artificial el ecologismo esta visto como un delito. Su corazon la jala en una direccion opuesta a la que le tiene predestinada su alrededor. En medio de su confusion una serie de eventos asombrosos desintegra todo lo que creia saber, y la confronta de manera inevitable a su verdadero ser y a los poderes que duermen en ella: aunque no quiera, es una Madya. Aprender a volar es nada mas el primer paso en una iniciacion larga y dificil, pero tambien llena de esperanza real para ella y para el mundo. "-Ya no podemos nadar en el mar -me grita el para que lo alcance a escuchar entre los soplidos del viento-, pero todavia podemos volar! Y eso nadie nos lo quitara nunca, nunca!, porque el aire es mas vasto que el egoismo.""
Read information about the authorI was born in Mexico City in 1972, my mother was a mathematician and social activist; my father, a physicist, was also involved in politics. Throughout my adolescence I was brought up in an indigenous community on the outskirts of Puebla, a city in Central Mexico, in which was located the science institute where my father worked. Since I was a little girl, I have been confronted by the great injustices that poor people in my country suffer. A typical weekend was spent in leftist political rallies, meetings of dispossessed peasants-farmers, widows of massacre victims seeking out a living, prostitutes fighting for the right to health services while being harassed by the authorities, battered women, citizens without drinking water, and hungry children.
At 19 years of age I left my family, rebelling against their expectations of me to become a great scientist. I was predestined for a life of laboratory work with physics or biology; my mission was to advance my country on the path of industrialization, something I disagreed with profoundly. I dreamed of dancing, of freeing my body from the prison in which it lived, and liberating other people from whatever it was which made them so indifferent to the suffering of others. I set off for Europe on a one way ticket with the equivalent of 500 euros and a small suitcase which carried the book that inspired my adventure: ‘The life of Isadora Duncan’. I began in Italy knowing not a soul, just renting a room for a month to sign up to the language school of Perugia. My goal: to find a dance school that was free and creative. Italy was just a stepping stone, my destination was north.
After a year of cleaning houses as an illegal immigrant in Germany and having shown my parents I would do anything to achieve my dreams, I passed the entrance audition for the University of Arts in Amsterdam to study contemporary choreography in their "School for New Dance Development".
On leaving the school I founded a company of improvisation. I've always been obsessed with teamwork and cooperation. I danced on stage with other companies and settled in Brussels. I married, I divorced, then I married my current husband and now have a son.
As well as my career as a choreographer, I was dedicated to activism. I was very involved in the early years of the Zapatista rebellion, and along with a friend we wrote a book hoping to find the necessary support to prevent the slaughter being orchestrated by successive Mexican governments. When the Indians were more or less safe, I focused on my activism within ecology and media manipulation.
When my son was born in 2005, my husband and I decided to stop protesting and transform our lives. We sold everything, we took two bags: one with permaculture books and the other with our clothes. And while carrying my baby in my shawl we went to the mountains of Michoacan in Mexico to look for some land on which we could set up a self-sufficient ranch, hoping to inspire all around us to follow the same path. But it was useless. Sad and discouraged we returned to Belgium, where we engaged intensively with Zen Buddhism. Our question: what is happening in the heads of all those who do not care about the future of the planet?
I am a fan of everything that has to do with the human mind, especially neuroscience. I avidly study scientific research and I am intrigued by autism, gifted people, as well as people who are considered 'normal'. I am a radical environmentalist. I truly believe that taking care of our ecosystems is synonymous with taking care of ourselves.
We currently live on the road in a caravan attempting what we have always dreamed: living an independent life and writing to share our discoveries.
