Schedule A Presentation:  Pascha enjoys sharing her technical and spiritual growth experiences during the twelve years of building Gaia.  She shows a one hour documentary film followed by a Q & A session enhanced by additional power point pictures and humorous stories.  Her personal narrative is both educational and entertaining. Audience comments:  “We can’t express how much we enjoyed the class you taught...what a beautiful and blessed journey you have had...you are a delightful teacher...we are so amazed with all you have done, and with how you are reaching out to help others.” Pascha has presented at colleges, schools and groups.  She appreciates a donation which covers her travel expenses plus a suggested honorarium of $200-300.
A One Hour Documentary  was produced by videographer Ken Gunnufson.  It is entitled:  “Grandma Builds an Earthship”. An award winning documentary of a 67-year-old grandmother building her totally off-the-grid home.  Pascha actually dug the trenches, placed the timbers, wired the outlets, milled the cabinets and trowled the walls of her Earthship.  Pascha’s 12 year pioneering effort fought through a mountain of regulatory barriers to bring alternative (nonstandard) construction methods to the high Rockies.  She came to the realization that the challenges of building her dream home were building her inner spirit as well. From the outset, naysayers had doubted an older woman without experience in the construction trades could do what Pascha had envisioned.  Using alternative building materials to create an energy self-sufficient home in one of the US’s harshest environments would be a monumental challenge.  Despite these pessimistic views, Pascha refused to give up and forged ahead to achieve her mountain dream. This inspirational story is not only informative and heart warming, but also offers insight into one of many possibilities for our nation to achieve energy independence.  There were risks, but her actions and self-confidence overcame uncertainty.  Watching Pascha’s spiritual growth allows us all to ponder the possibilities of reaching our own full potential.
