Standing on the Miraculous Field

“Standing on the Miraculous Field” follows Terra Norihiro Terazawa’s story of reviving a lemon tree and the principle of Nature Farming. Modern society has created a world of constant growth and progress. Science has enabled us to create a materially wealthy life. Through all the economic and scientific breakthroughs, we’ve adapted a mindset to improve nature. Faster is better… or is it? Nature Farming (The ‘do-nothing farming’ method) teaches us to regain awareness of syncing with nature forces and the way to live in peace within ourselves and the world around us.

As a Storyteller and Nature Farmer based in Den Haag, The Netherlands, Terra Norihiro Terazawa poses a vital question to the modern world:

What is to live with connection, in peace, and in abundance?

In a real sense, people cannot understand nature completely. Don’t do anything unnecessary. But that doesn’t mean to let it be. Nature is not sweet to a lazy peasant.

Masanobu Fukuoka
The originator of Nature Farming.
